    "Reclaimed" New series on Discovery Channel

    I recorded the first episode and have not watched yet but this series may turn out to be worth watching(?). https://www.google.com/search?q=recl...hrome&ie=UTF-8

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    IMO, it was just OK. Formatted the same as nearly all the other "Reality" shows. The advantage will be seeing the old mines.

    It's a silly and misleading concept.

    These are not "dormant mining claims". They ceased being mining claims when they were patented. Those patents cost $2.50 an acre for placers and $5.00 an acre for lodes. "Pennies on the dollar" would have meant the current owners would have paid less than $5 an acre. That didn't happen.

    The current owners are not "homesteaders". Homesteading was a different type of land patent. The fact there was a mineral patent granted excludes the possibility of a homestead patent ever being granted on the same land. Two very different things that can't coexist.

    With just a little bit of research and knowledge the Discovery channel could have presented some interesting and educational historical information about how this country was settled as part of this show's presentation. Instead we get a the usual made up "history" they think will sell best. Made up history replacing facts - pretty sad.

    Just more "mining" TV based on nothing but drama and misinformation. Nothing wrong with relaxing with your favorite beverage and watching Wheel of Fortune, Reclaimed or CNN. It's all fantasy meant to entertain the viewer. If you enjoy that stuff relax and enjoy the show.

    Can you, in california, have land that is homesteaded, start placer/dredge mining, and then patent the land based on the mineral resources?

    No that's not a possibility in California or any other western mining state..

    Barry, does a "homesteader" even have the mineral rights?

    That's a good question Mike, one I encounter almost daily in my work.

    It all depends on which Homestead grant their patent was issued under. There were a bunch of different Homestead grants through the years. Many of the eastern states Homestead patents did include the minerals. A lot of the later western Homestead patents excluded minerals, oil and gas. The only way to know for sure is to read the patent.

    The homestead grant my home’s land title is based on only excludes lode mineral, not placer. It can be that specific!

    PS the show is, in the words of the Executive Producer “just another ‘build show’ but celebrates our mining heritage. I think that’s cool because I like build shows anyway. Also because I will be very briefly in one episode of this first season. I have friends in several other episodes so it will be fun to see them on tv too!

    That's interesting Kevin. I've studied thousands of patents and never seen a lode specific reservation. If you could share your patent number by PM I'd love to download a copy from the GLO for my collection.

    The following series is mostly prospecting specific but not for gold......Outback Opal Hunters(https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C...30.az-k-z6TEOs), another Discovery Channel series that you may want to put on your watch list. Some of the things these guys do are "just plumb crazy" but they do find some beautiful opal.

    Forgot this was on, thanks for the reminder. I'll probably watch with the volume off.
