Absolutely not. BLM has a good publication called the Location and Validity of Mining Claims and Sites. Load (hard rock) and placer are clearly defined on page one. The book is a necessity if you are involved in a claim or want to claim something of your own.

A placer claim will bar someone from coming in and placing a lode claim on top and a lode claim can not have a placer claim put over it. A placer claim would cover as deep as you could possibly dig, although at a certain point you'd need a Plan of Operation, Notices of Intent, and bonds, and anything else for a full scale mining operation.
