The History of Tombstone
July 2000 by Edgar B. Heylmun, PhDThe Tombstone Mining District of Arizona was not a major producer of silver in comparison with some districts in other states, but it has had a long and colorful history.
Our research indicated this whole area had been claimed by Newmont mining company for several years, but when the price of gold dropped they let the claims expire, and we confirmed this with the local BLM office.
How much is that old Mining Journal worth?
There are dry placer gold deposits in every county in Nevada, some of which are yet to be discovered.
Q: Do "corners" need to be in place on the ground for a claim to be valid?
In this proposed rule, BLM is seeking to amend regulations to respond to a recent law that continues to require claimants to pay location and maintenance fees on unpatented mining claims or sites and to provide annual maintenance fee waivers to small miners until September 30, 2001.
Old mine workings and tailing piles can represent opportunities on many levels, from the chance to simply find a nugget on up to the commercial reworking of the old tailings for profit.
