MMAC & PLP Update


The legislators soon came to the realization that Mining Districts and our proposed bill can solve many of the problems they currently face in their home states.

Legislative and Regulatory Update


  • PLF files petition with US Supreme Court on behalf of Oregon miners
  • Land and Water Conservation Fund abuse by Forest Service
  • Army asks for REE proposals

Legislative and Regulatory Update


• Idaho miners will challenge new EPA permit at rally
• California proposes to amend definition of a suction dredge
• Proposed rule redefines "navigable waters"
