1872 Act

improvement...... Legal Dictionary definition

n. any permanent structure on real property, or any work on the property (such as planting trees) which increases its value.
From SEC 5

On each claim located after the passage of this act, and until a patent shall have been issued therefor, not less than one hundred dollars' worth of labor shall be performed or improvements made during each year


Last time I checked the USFS and BLM did not allow improvements......yet the USFS and BLM have no authority over Public Domain.

This raises a very interesting issue of contention!


I am very glad to read the new meat. This is my knowledge. Forum Index -> Mining Law Tibits
