prospector for the touristMining Claims and Sites

Anyone who is a citizen of the United States or has declared an intention to become a citizen may locate a mining claim.

A corporation organized under State laws may also locate a mining claim. The Government considers corporations to have the same standards as a citizen.

A claim held by an alien is voidable only by the U.S. Government, not another individual.

There is no limit to the number of claims and sites that may be held by a claimant.

A mining claim is a particular parcel of Federal land, valuable for a specific mineral deposit or deposits.

It is a parcel for which an individual has asserted a right of possession.

The right is restricted to the extraction and development of a mineral deposit.

The rights granted by a mining claim are valid against a challenge by the United States and other claimants only after the discovery of a valuable mineral deposit.
