Since when does the ESA Trump the 1872 Mining Law?

"WASHINGTON, D.C. March 18, 2013 - Today the Supreme Court let stand a decision from the En Banc panel of 11 judges of the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco that essentially establishes that the Endangered Species Act (ESA) trumps the 1872 Mining Act. Recreational mining groups had filed a petition with the Supreme Court asking that they overturn the lower court decision, but the petition was denied."...

How?? Does anyone care to elaborate?

Well the first thing I see here is the term "Recreational mining groups", the 1872 Mining Laws dosen't give any rights/protection to "Recreational mining groups", I hope that these groups didn't mess up what the Mining Laws does for real miners!!!

I have heard of it and knowing the factor it worked is something which appeals to the moment throughout. The thing is to understand all these concepts which goes accordingly and when we think of knowing a lot can be there for us. Forum Index -> General
