ONCE YOU PURCHASE AN UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM, YOU OWN IT FOREVER AS LONG AS YOU PAY THE ANNUAL MAINTANANCE FEE OR FILE A SMALL MINERS WAIVER, TO KEEP THE CLAIM ACTIVE. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS DO YOU ACCEPT TERMS AS OTHER EBAY SELLERS DO? The answer is NO for your own protection. The deed cannot be transferred until final payment is made. If the deed owner fails to pay the proper fees or happens to lose the claim, or the claim status is overturned, you are out all you paid. So we do not accept terms for your protection and want any minerals located to be yours, all yours uncontested and fully enforceable. WHAT IS AN UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM? A mining claim is a parcel of land for which the claimant has asserted a right of possession and the right to develop and extract a discovered, valuable, mineral deposit. IS THE LAND MINE? In a landmark case in 1930, the Supreme Court stated that: When the location of a mining claim is perfected under the law, it has the effect of a grant by the United States of the right of present and exclusive possession. The claim is property in the fullest sense of that term; and may be Sold, Transferred, Mortgaged, and Inherited without infringing any right or title of the United States and is considered real property. You own only the mineral rights until a patent is secured from the government. Presently, there is a moratorium on issuance of patents, however this is subject to change in the future. Presently, because of the moratorium on issuing patents, no applications are being accepted at this time. WHAT IF I FIND OTHERS CAMPING, FISHING, HUNTING, HIKING, ETC ON MY CLAIM? Others may recreate on an unpatented mining claim, however: you have the right to post mining claim signs warning the public of possible hazards and dangerous conditions pertaining to your mining procedures. You may also post “No Trespassing of Mineral Rights”. In most instances, the public will respect your rights and the signs help to convey the claimants rights. “CHENEY CREEK PMC” is well posted to keep people from prospecting on your claim. CAN I SELL OR GIVE MY CLAIM AWAY? Mining claims and sites are considered real property! The interest in them and associated rights may be sold, transferred, leased, rented, willed, or inherited. UPATENTED MINING CLAIMS IN OREGON ARE NOT TAXED. To keep your claim active, you must pay a maintainace fee to the BLM of $140.00 or file a small miner claim waiver and pay $10.00 on or before September 1st of each year for the following year. The BLM did send notices this year but expects you to remember to file this fee or your mining claim is declared closed and you lose the possession of your claim. The claim has all mining claim requirements and fees paid through September 1st, 2012. CAN I BUILD ON MY CLAIM? PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CLOSELY. The mining laws permit the prospector and miner to make reasonable use of a mining claim, as long as the use is incident and necessary to prospecting, mining and processing operations. However, an erroneous impression sometimes exists to the effect that the act of staking a mining claim is the shortest route to obtaining public land for a homesite, weekend retreat or other unlawful purpose. ANY USE OF THE SURFACE OF AN UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM FOR PURPOSES UNRELATED TO MINING IS UNAUTHORIZED and therefore, considered to be in trespass. (BLM notice to mining claimants, August 2009) WHO CAN OWN A CLAIM: Any citizen of the United States, a minor who has reached the age of discretion, a corporation, and non-citizens (aliens) who have declared their intention to become a citizen. After a notice of placer location has been filed with the county and BLM, a mining claim may be purchased by one or more claimants. The claimant can also be a business name. At the end of the auction I will email the winning bidder with totals and details for completing the sale and include all the paper work to keep your claim active. A properly filed quit claim deed will be recorded with Josephine County and the BLM by me and I will pay all of the fees necessary to complete the deed after payment is received.
