Idaho Statue 42

42-3806. Existing rights unaffected -- Where permit not required. This act shall not operate or be so construed as to impair, diminish, control or divest any existing or vested water rights acquired under the laws of the state of Idaho or the United States




1866 Act Section 9

SEC. 9. And be it further enacted, That whenever, by priority of possession, rights to the use of water for mining, agricultural, manufacturing, or other purposes, have vested and accrued, and the same are recognized and acknowledged by the local customs, laws, and the decisions of courts, the possessors and owners of such vested rights shall be maintained and protected in the same;


"Authorization to conduct recreational mining activities" Remember your not a recreational miner.

Your a miner, that "R" word needs to go away !!!

Should I

Thank you Gary, should I send them a letter and inform them, stir the pot a little or just let them be. This is how it all starts, they tell you to get a permit and file this and that. I guess I'm curious as to where the money goes for said permits because I know for a fact they don't have water police so where does my ten bucks go.

John;

You have the right to ask these agencies for their basis in law, for demanding a "permit".  You also have the right (duty and responsibility) to inquire how their permit process complies with the 1866 and 1872 mining laws.  

If you file for a permit, license or complete a POO or other action that you are "told" you need to mine, you will erase your standing and rights under the 1872 mining laws.  Like an egg, once broken...

This site has all the information you will require, to make sure you keep all of your rights intact.  As said before, under the 1866 & 1872 mining laws, there is no such thing as a "recreational" miner.  You ONLY have rights as a "miner".

BTW.. Welcome aboard!
