Watch Out for Split Estates When Filing Your Claim
December 2017 by Bryon Tolle
The only thing that saved me was talking to a local miner who gave me a “heads up” that private individuals owned all the mineral rights in that section.
I started with, "Hey, Rusty, tell me about the time..." and that was all it took.
This time we took the detectors. Roger had worked that spot very well and wanted to see if my new detector would uncover any gold he might have missed.
This concept of detecting does not always work as we sometimes get a week or so where the temperatures rise to 116°—sometimes more.
How many more clays seams lie adjacent to known shear zones and quartz veins in the pocket areas of southwestern Oregon?
We soon found that our discovery post and other claim markers were gone and replaced with new posts and a notice of location with an earlier date than had been on our notice of location.
