    MyLandMatters and plat maps

    Using the mining claim maps on MyLandMatters (best out there!!) I've come across a government lot in a section. This government lot is not displayed on the MT Plat maps and the area in question is shown as aliquot on the Plat.

    Which is correct in this instance? I got the Plat map via MyLandMatters.

    Thanks!

    Always always always go with the MTP. It is the official record. The MTP's on Land Matters are direct downloads from the General Land Office so you always know you are getting the most current copy.

    The PLSS is not the official survey, only the pins on the ground are "official" parts of the survey. There are a lot of mistakes and gaps in the PLSS. We've spent months correcting these errors but there seem to always be more.

    I'm puzzled by your statement that "the area in question is shown as aliquot on the Plat"? Aliquot parts are not displayed on the MTP, only government lots, patents, mineral surveys and sales are displayed on the MTP.

    PM me the TRS of the area you have questions about and with some research I will figure out whether I need to correct the PLSS designation.

    The MTP shows an acreage amount for what would be a government lot on the PLSS. That is how it appears to me. May have to go PM route with Clay as I am not going to share my fishing spot with you high-graders.

    If an acreage is shown on the MTP it is a government lot and not an aliquot part Chuck. You should see a single digit number near the acreage designation, that's the lot number.

    Aliquots (quarter quarter sections and smaller) are never shown on an MTP as they are only a protracted part of the survey and are not surveyed or monumented on the ground. Lots are surveyed and have corner pins.

    Your response goes into my vast holdings of notes from you. Thanks for taking the time both here and at mylandmatters.org to bring us good mining info.
