USFS knows the law. I think they feel these laws are out of date. Their tactic is to impose their regulations and force the claim holders to agree to some outrageous conditions or take them to court. Typical claim holder is eventually worn down, out of money, or dies and the USFS rules.
Actually the Pershing County online document search is one of the nicer ones. Very simple and relatively straight forward. The trick is to pick the appropriate list and only enter the info you need to make the list you want.
You may have the same basic rights but you won't legally have any firearms. You can not bring firearms into the U.S. of A. without a permit. Generally for hunting or shooting competitions only. See:

Looks to me that the 3 elements that register 0.3 exceed the 0.2 limit and you would have to reduce this somehow to make it acceptable. Just a guess. Why don't you get the information you need from the company doing the analysis?
Also, the test result shows you do have radioactive elements IMO.
Pick a day and place. Hundreds, thousands of dredgers descend on a stream and break the law in mass. Bank to bank dredges in the water. Banks lined with supporters blocking those who would ticket the dredgers. Block the roads. Clog the courts. Massive disobedience.
I thought the logo on the map might result in some comment.:laughing7: It just happens to be the map I randomly selected to show a better picture of the watershed to contrast to Reed's map. I'm pretty sure Trout Unlimited (TU) did not draw a special map showing a fictitious river system just...
This map gives a better idea of the location in the watershed. Can these waters and the fishery be adequately protected forever if this project is allowed to proceed. IN MY OPINION it is not worth the risk. You are entitled to your opinion.
In this case it is the individual mine. It's potential size and location. We need not worry about whether we are actually capable of protecting a valuable fishery if the mine is not there in first the place.
I am all for sensible development of our resources, but I agree that this mine is indeed a potential ecological disaster. The project is too large to adequately monitor. Particularly in perpetuity after the mineral resources are all mined out. Some places on this Earth just have to be out of...
