How to Stake your own Gold Claim in the United States!

Recommended Posts

Leaves a couple of things out.  I recommend checking land status for things like mineral withdrawal, ownership status, wilderness areas.  Also, to me a big thing is to check county records for any new filings. County records update at least 2 weeks quicker than the BLM site.

Also, not sure it talked about the small miner waiver.

I’d never seen in writing or even heard to leave the claim marker and paperwork in the northern corner, what they call corner I.  This may be a state thing.

I do recommend downloading your BLM recommended state form and also a couple of filed claims to help check the format.  Describing the PLSS system and how  things like specifically how to phrase the location.  This 20 acres is not lat long and is worded weird:  “25 North, 13 West, Section 16 East half of the Southwest quarter quarter of the Northwest quarter.”
