Canyon Resources Offers to Sell Mineral Rights
July 2000 by Associated PressCanyon Resources Corporation recently offered to let environmental groups buy the mineral rights under nearly a million acres of land in western Montana.
Several thousand miners and their families made it a successful show. Local mining companies gave employees time off to attend the Thursday and Friday exhibits and events.
We dug and extracted for two more hours. This time, as I dumped the concentrates, I saw a piece of gold three-fourths of an inch long and as big around as a pencil.
The only thing that saved me was talking to a local miner who gave me a “heads up” that private individuals owned all the mineral rights in that section.
- Proposed budget for EPA
- California SB 1222
- 640 million acres and counting
- Gold and silver bullion
There are many smaller old hard rock mines out there—more than you might think. There are some small hard rock properties that are even open to be claimed if one does the right amount of research to find them.
