What is a Mining Right?
April 2015 by Clark PearsonA mining right is a powerful and not commonly understood concept that is all too often watered down by agency regulatory interference...
Pearson called the trip, “The most productive so far. We are courting over a dozen potential sponsors now. We had some members call us back for additional meetings and several of these lasted over an hour.”
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.
Within these districts, some of the roads and trails have been reopened for access, critical habitat designations have been scaled back, and a few Mining Districts were completely removed from proposed withdrawals.
We are in the planning stages for our next trip to DC. Clark and I are looking at returning after the mid-term elections, probably around the end of November or early December, to continue discussions with members of Congress…
Public Lands for the People is working on a Miner's Bill of Rights with the support of several members of Congress.
The current administration is receptive; we believe the time is ripe to push for a return to reasonable regulations and to restore mining to a priority for public lands as long as some new crisis doesn’t take precedent.
... officials with BLM have been impressed by MMAC’s professional approach and consistency.
