    I'm not sure why California fee's are so expensive, but I agree with the person who posted "What isn't expensive in California". I've heard that Nevada and Arizona are much more mining friendly than California.

    "Talk about expensive, a lot of claims around me are claimed by the same ppl and were talking 3 claims that total 1,920 acres do the math"

    An association of two locators may locate 40 acres, and three may locate 60 acres, etc. The maximum area of an association placer claim permitted by law is 160 ...

    For. The. Money.

    Also for some of us, they arenít that hard to find.

    Iím expecting to sell a claim in the next year simply because itís a long drive compared to another decent spot I can claim. So, yeah, logistics.

    This one just popped up. $49000 for a claim?? Even at 100 acres that's nuts, are these claims that rich?

    I have a claim outside Alleghany that I purchased with a friend, it was a little pricey but its a little juicey, it wasn't from a claim flipper or craigslist though.

    I have also noticed a lot of people filing claims in California and then trying to flip them for a quick buck on ebay and other sites. I also noticed that the claims that they "file" are only filed at the county. Not with BLM. They do not have a CMAC #.
    Now I have filed many claims in N. CA over the years and have never filed with the County. I was even involved in a couple of legal disputes involving attorneys. Cease and desist letters and such. I would just send the attorney a copy of my location notice, a map with the borders of the claim accurately drawn out and an engineers ruler and invite them to learn how to use it. In both cases the threats stopped.
    My point is that if you do not file your mining claim with BLM then you have no claim. It is federal land. By not filing with the county does not invalidate your federal miming claim. Now don't get me wrong it's a good idea to file with the county for it just strengthens your position. I guess it's possible that the county could prohibit you from working the claim unless you file with them but I would be really surprised If they could invalidate your claim. Now I have not filed a claim in over 15 years in CA but I would be willing to bet that a county can not impose a use tax or property tax on federal lands. This is why the federal government pays the county what they call payment in lieu of taxes funds. It is designed to reimburse the county for providing services on federal lands such as police medical and fire ect.
    I would really love some feedback on this issue.

    Looks like there are several that he/they/it are lumping together.

    Perfect way to get some landmatters and lr2000 practice.

    Use the description. Zoom in. turn on Land manager and PLSS. start clicking on info.You will see numerous claims in the sections named and nearby. Also a lot of private land that was claimed then patented.

    It is ancient river gravels being mine mostly.

    It is a "good" area.

    There are several claims that have been held since the 1980's You will see that ones in the are named are newer. Section 16 has eighteen claims. two being Lode.

    They are held by Amador Capitol.

    You can run reports on names and location on lr2000

    you can see what claims have come and gone as in how many have been filed and closed and if a spot has been claimed multiple times.

    you can run a customer report on peoples names and by the name of the claim.

    Once you have one of those bits of info you can expand on it.

    You can do this to see if it is an individual selling a claim because they are just selling a claim.

    You can also find out if that person locates and sells often...and as quick as possible... a flipper most of the time.

    You will even see the same bit of ground sold more claimed and transfered by the same person more than once.

    I bet A dollar that the claims for sale are the newest ones held by Amador Capitol.

    They have filed at least thirty claims since 2015 and almost double that in Nevada.

    Many claims located on the same day

    Most of their claims in Nv are closed due to abandonment.


    Notice on the craigslist add they claim that there are tens of millions in the grounds still!!!

    $49k is a bargain RIGHT?
