Learning how to copy and paste...but good info

NO POSSESSORY ACTION BETWEEN (INDIVIDUALS):..THOSE PEOPLE GIVEN TITLE TO A GIVEN TRACT OF MINERAL LAND, IN ANY OF THE COURTS OF THE UNITED STATES FOR (RECOVERY):  RESTORATION OF THEIR FORMER RIGHT TO ANY MINING (TITLE): POSSESSION/OCCUPATION, OR FOR (DAMAGES):.......???........................TO SUCH (TITLE):  POSSESSION/OCCUPATION, SHALL BE AFFECTED BY THE FACT THAT THE (PARAMOUNT):  THAT WHICH IS SUPERIOR (TITLE):   POSSESSION/OCCUPATION TO THE LAND ON WHICH MINES ARE!, IS IN THE U.S., BUT THAT EACH (CASE):   CONTESTED QUESTION BEFORE A COURT SHALL BE (ADJUDGED):  DETERMINED/DECIDED BY JUDICIAL PROCEDURE BY THE LAW OF (POSSESSION): THE PHYSICAL ENJOYMENT OF A THING WHILE OTHERS ARE EXCLUDED.



Per the 1865 act.    If I have applied definitions correctly, and understand this correctly, the law says the courts must decide that there can be no other rule affording the miner all the rights of his claim other than the physical right of his use/occupation and to no others.  Simply put it is the law of possession of a valid mineral deposite claim.

Hefty just gave me a copy and paste class so I am trying it out.  This is info I value greatly.

TITLE 30 > CHAPTER 2 > § 28

Prev | Next


§ 28. Mining district regulations by miners: location, recordation, and amount of work; marking of location on ground; records; annual labor or improvements on claims pending issue of patent; co-owner’s succession in interest upon delinquency in contributing proportion of expenditures; tunnel as lode expenditure

How Current is This?


The miners of each mining district may make regulations not in conflict with the laws of the United States, or with the laws of the State or Territory in which the district is situated, governing the location, manner of recording, amount of work necessary to hold possession of a mining claim, subject to the following requirements: The location must be distinctly marked on the ground so that its boundaries can be readily traced. All records of mining claims made after May 10, 1872, shall contain the name or names of the locators, the date of the location, and such a description of the claim or claims located by reference to some natural object or permanent monument as will identify the claim. On each claim located after the 10th day of May 1872, that is granted a waiver under section 28f of this title, and until a patent has been issued therefor, not less than $100 worth of labor shall be performed or improvements made during each year. On all claims located prior to the 10th day of May 1872, $10 worth of labor shall be performed or improvements made each year, for each one hundred feet in length along the vein until a patent has been issued therefor; but where such claims are held in common, such expenditure may be made upon any one claim; and upon a failure to comply with these conditions, the claim or mine upon which such failure occurred shall be open to relocation in the same manner as if no location of the same had ever been made, provided that the original locators, their heirs, assigns, or legal representatives, have not resumed work upon the claim after failure and before such location. Upon the failure of any one of several coowners to contribute his proportion of the expenditures required hereby, the coowners who have performed the labor or made the improvements may, at the expiration of the year, give such delinquent co-owner personal notice in writing or notice by publication in the newspaper published nearest the claim, for at least once a week for ninety days, and if at the expiration of ninety days after such notice in writing or by publication such delinquent should fail or refuse to contribute his proportion of the expenditure required by this section, his interest in the claim shall become the property of his co-owners who have made the required expenditures. The period within which the work required to be done annually on all unpatented mineral claims located since May 10, 1872, including such claims in the Territory of Alaska, shall commence at 12:01 ante meridian on the first day of September succeeding the date of location of such claim.

Where a person or company has or may run a tunnel for the purposes of developing a lode or lodes, owned by said person or company, the money so expended in said tunnel shall be taken and considered as expended on said lode or lodes, whether located prior to or since May 10, 1872; and such person or company shall not be required to perform work on the surface of said lode or lodes in order to hold the same as required by this section. On all such valid claims the annual period ending December 31, 1921, shall continue to 12 o’clock meridian July 1, 1922.

More good info from US Codes, which are the codification of current general & permanent laws of the United States.

This is worth comparing to the Acts of 1865, 1866, 1870, and 1872.

I coppied and pasted  sub sections 22, 23, 26, 27, and 28 but only 28 came up when I tried to post all of them on the previous posting.

Now all I have to do is figure out where all the others went to.

§ 22. Lands open to purchase by citizens

How Current is This?


Except as otherwise provided, all valuable mineral deposits in lands belonging to the United States, both surveyed and unsurveyed, shall be free and open to exploration and purchase, and the lands in which they are found to occupation and purchase, by citizens of the United States and those who have declared their intention to become such, under regulations prescribed by law, and according to the local customs or rules of miners in the several mining districts, so far as the same are applicable and not inconsistent with the laws of the United States.

I guess I will do sub sections one at a time...but all worth comparing to the 1865,1866, 1870, & 1872 Acts.

§ 23. Length of claims on veins or lodes

How Current is This?


Mining claims upon veins or lodes of quartz or other rock in place bearing gold, silver, cinnabar, lead, tin, copper, or other valuable deposits, located prior to May 10, 1872, shall be governed as to length along the vein or lode by the customs, regulations, and laws in force at the date of their location. A mining claim located after the 10th day of May 1872, whether located by one or more persons, may equal, but shall not exceed, one thousand five hundred feet in length along the vein or lode; but no location of a mining claim shall be made until the discovery of the vein or lode within the limits of the claim located. No claim shall extend more than three hundred feet on each side of the middle of the vein at the surface, nor shall any claim be limited by any mining regulation to less than twenty-five feet on each side of the middle of the vein at the surface, except where adverse rights existing on the 10th day of May 1872 render such limitation necessary. The end lines of each claim shall be parallel to each other.

§ 26. Locators’ rights of possession and enjoyment

How Current is This?


The locators of all mining locations made on any mineral vein, lode, or ledge, situated on the public domain, their heirs and assigns, where no adverse claim existed on the 10th day of May 1872 so long as they comply with the laws of the United States, and with State, territorial, and local regulations not in conflict with the laws of the United States governing their possessory title, shall have the exclusive right of possession and enjoyment of all the surface included within the lines of their locations, and of all veins, lodes, and ledges throughout their entire depth, the top or apex of which lies inside of such surface lines extended downward vertically, although such veins, lodes, or ledges may so far depart from a perpendicular in their course downward as to extend outside the vertical side lines of such surface locations. But their right of possession to such outside parts of such veins or ledges shall be confined to such portions thereof as lie between vertical planes drawn downward as above described, through the end lines of their locations, so continued in their own direction that such planes will intersect such exterior parts of such veins or ledges. Nothing in this section shall authorize the locator or possessor of a vein or lode which extends in its downward course beyond the vertical lines of his claim to enter upon the surface of a claim owned or possessed by another.

§ 27. Mining tunnels; right to possession of veins on line with; abandonment of right

How Current is This?


Where a tunnel is run for the development of a vein or lode, or for the discovery of mines, the owners of such tunnel shall have the right of possession of all veins or lodes within three thousand feet from the face of such tunnel on the line thereof, not previously known to exist, discovered in such tunnel, to the same extent as if discovered from the surface; and locations on the line of such tunnel of veins or lodes not appearing on the surface, made by other parties after the commencement of the tunnel, and while the same is being prosecuted with reasonable diligence, shall be invalid; but failure to prosecute the work on the tunnel for six months shall be considered as an abandonment of the right to all undiscovered veins on the line of such tunnel.

Did it one piece at a time.....but itis here for all to compare to the old mining acts.

EDIT: in response to whoever is asking your questions "How current is this?"
I copied from woof page 5 calssroom #2
"As far as the Mining Acts being old, repealed, modified or expired you need only to read United States Code Title 30. Every phrase from the Acts is still intact there and by definition is current law. "

EDIT:For those new or following along there is a link to US Code here in the abbreviations post

He is not the one asking the question.

United States Codes, Ttile 30. Cahapter 2--Mineral Lands and Regulations in General LII - Legal Information Institute http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/usc_su_01_30_10_2.html

This is the web site.....and the question as to "is it current" is part of the language presented and came with the copy and paste.

It would be of value to take each part of the Title 30 and correlate it directly to each Act section.

In other words take ss sect 22 of Title 30........have it written out and then write out the corresponding sections that are relevant in each Act.  It could be done in a time related cronilogical sequence possibly.
