White pvc or other type pipe or posts are a common

way to mark claim corners. I noticed on a previous post

you were inquiring about the Wickiup area.

The Wickiup area is a maze of valid mining claims,state

land ,and private land. There is places there that have

several sections of state land that runs for miles in blocks.

Also several large mining companies have huge blocks

under claim.

Any one of the above can land you in jail if you are caught

prospecting,detecting ,or removing minerals.

The State land in Arizona is not public land. The State of

Arizona will prosecute in a heart beat.

Please clarify to a non AZ resident how State land cannot be public land? I can understand about prospecting in State Parks ? ? ? :hmmmmmm:

El Dorado

The state land is school trust land. It belongs to the

state school systems and is administrated by the state.

It was withdrawn from the public land system. Arizona

is not the only place like that. The minerals,timber,

grazing, or any other activity is used to generate funds

for the school system. They can sell or exchange it too.
