Administration of Mining Claims and Sites

 
Docket ID: BLM-2012-0002
Agency: Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
Parent Agency: Department of the Interior (DOI)
Summary:
BLM is proposing this rule to amend regulations on locating, recording, and maintaining mining claims or sites. In this rule, BLM would amend its regulations to respond to a recent law that changes the way the maintenance fee is calculated for unpatented placer mining claims. The law (1) specifies that the holder of an unpatented placer mining claim must pay the initial and annual maintenance fee for each 20 acres or portion thereof contained in the claim; and (2) reiterates that an initial maintenance fee payment is due at the time of recording the claim with the BLM and that the annual maintenance fee is due on or before September 1 of each year.
RIN: 1004-AE27
