Minnesota Delays Decision on Mineral Leases
November 2011 by Patrick CondonLandowners complained that mineral mining on or near their property could damage property values while leaving them without a cut of potential profits.
Unfortunately, mining is politically unpopular and support of the mining industry, no matter how many jobs it brings to a state, even in times of difficult financial need, is never popular among politicians of any stripe.
Please note that new mining claims filed on or after September 1, 2019, will be subject to the new fee schedule.
All of which brings us back to the question of why we rely so heavily on China in the first place. America’s economy is heavily dependent upon energy and telecommunications, but does that require Chinese manufacturing? Clearly not.
Mining Districts are the private regulatory authority granted by Congress recognized to regulate the mineral lands held by the United States and for the disposal to citizens of the United States, by means of development and potentially perfected by patent.
