News from the Editor

After nearly a year in the works, we are officially releasing the online flip version of ICMJ’s Prospecting and Mining Journal. The new version is compatible with PC, Mac, iPad or Android devices.

Our goal is to reach out to the next generation of prospectors and miners who might prefer reading our monthly issues on their desktop computer or portable device. Before you start worrying, we have no plans whatsoever to discontinue the printed version of our publication!

Those subscribers who have an online subscription, or those who paid the additional $4 annual fee to have online access added to their print subscription, will receive an email when the new flip version is released each Tablet.month.

If you would like to check out the online version, a free sample copy is available on our website at www.icmj.com

One very nice benefit is that all website and email address links in the flip version are “live.” If you click on a website link in an article or in an advertisement, you will be taken to that website. The same is true for email addresses.

On another note, we want to remind you that 2015 mining claim maintenance fees are due on or before September 1, 2014. You can still file the small miner’s waiver in lieu of fees for ten or fewer mining claims, mill or tunnel sites, which is also due on or before September 1, 2014.

Mining claim maintenance and location fees have risen—see "BLM Raises Location and Claim Fees" in this issue for the article.

The Bureau of Land Management has set up an online payment system for all states except Alaska. However, I received an error message when trying it out. I sent off a message to BLM and hopefully they will get the bugs worked out. I recommend that you plan to complete your forms and send in or drop off your payments at this time. Even if they get the payment system up and running, there is always the chance that it could break down when large numbers of miners and prospectors attempt to login at the same time.

Enjoy the last two months of summer and go find yourself some gold.
