MMAC & PLP Update
October 2015 by Scott HarnKeep in mind there are specific steps that must be taken to get your traditional mining district organized if it has fallen into disarray.
• Conformation for some
• Congress canceling regulations
This article may not be as interesting as someone describing a big nugget find in Australia...but right now the biggest obstacle to mining is our government.
• EPA rule blocked
• Idaho challenges EPA regulations
• California suction gold dredging
• No Adventure Pass needed
• Supreme Court of Canada rules on aboriginal title claims
• No agreement reached in suction gold dredge permitting case
Besides the EPA issue, our major priority is to work on the proposed amendment to the National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act (S 145), a bill proposed in the Senate by US Senator Dean Heller (R-Nevada).
Rather than using the practice of government seizure of private property to promote economic development, the county is using it to preserve open space.
