  1. Thanks for the reminder Clay! Also worth mentioning is that it's mail only, no walking it in this year until further notice due to Covid concerns. Get them in the mail and make sure you track it! Later...Jim P.
  2. They might need a gentile reminder that you are mining under the 1872 mining law and have right to access. From the forest service's own manual https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd533980.pdf 2813.14 - Right of Access to Claim The right of reasonable access for purposes of prospecting, locating, and mining is provided by statute. Such access must be in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Forest Service. However, the rules and regulations may not be applied so as to prevent lawful mineral activities or to cause undue hardship on bona fide p
  3. Sad news for sure, most helpful guy around, RIP my friend.
  4. Sorry for your loss Chris, I saw of his passing in the latest Roadrunner's newsletter. Great memories. Later...Jim P.
  5. Sorry to hear this Rick, You'll be in my prayers. Later...Jim P.
  6. Snakejim is correct, I'll just add that any association placer claim of up to 160 acres still counts as a single claim under the small miner exemption. Later...Jim P.
  7. Volunteer or nominate someone to be a voice for miners and prospectors in the Prescott National Forest https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/prescott/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD640442
  8. I detected and dug up a desert iguana buried in the sand of a wash back in my VLF days, scared the crap out of me. Keep digging and good luck. Later...Jim P.
  9. I replied to Les with the following excerpt from CFR 3809.5 describing no notice level "casual use"; "it may include the use of small portable suction dredges" This is the current standard so I don't know why the AZ BLM gets to claiming otherwise. I can't seem to paste here, just Google CFR 3809.5 and CFR 3715 which deals with occupancy. Later...Jim P.
  10. I've not felt the need to respond to a post or thread here for a long time, but this one got my ire up a little. While I believe Wyoprospector is beyond help, I'd say a conservative estimate of those who have been helped by Bill and the members on this forum is in the multiple thousands, myself included. While Bill and I have not always seen eye to eye on everything over the years, he's always had my respect and appreciation for his wiliness to share both time and knowledge. In fact it's all Bill's fault; if he hadn't been so generous, I'd probably still be poking around with my Tesoro Di
  11. Try this. http://www.fs.fed.us/cgi-bin/Directives/get_dirs/fsm?2800 Click on 2810 doc., scroll down to page 35. Keep in mind, this is written for the rangers, not the public. Hope this helps. Later...Jim P.
  12. Hi John, here's all I can find. Nada. I searched the entire federal register for 2009 and 2010 and only came up with one document mentioning meteorites, and that was limited to Antactica. Here's the latest forest management proposed plan for Coronado, again, nothing about meteorites or relics. CNF 2010 plan If someone issued a memo within the CNF manegment, you can request a copy using the Freedom of Information act. I'll keep looking. Later...Jim P. Searching /wais/indexes/2010_register... Your query was: (METEORITE) The database contains 26,696,335 words in 15,002 documents. The database c
  13. Private property, always has been, just like the town sites of Gillett and Tip Top. Might be new owners or just tired of all the idiots tearing up the place. Once again, the lowest common denominator determines the rules the rest of us by default. Later...Jim P.
  14. Hi all, here's our chance to make our voices heard before we loose more rights and more mineral lands. The National Forest service is requesting public input on collecting public input regarding "specific forest landscapes", and "special places"; in other words, pick any place you don't want loggers, miners, ranchers, hunters, off roaders Etc, and we'll block them for you. Keep in mind, they are asking for comments on if and how to collect public comments, not actual comments related to those areas mentioned above (confusing I know, but that's our Government at it's best) One idea that comes t
