As I understand it the old laws were written so the common man with a basic understanding of English (at the time) could understand them.

Here is the kicker. Common men were also charged with interpreting
and enforcing those laws.

Not the case today. COMMON sense is dead and so are those old miners.

But the laws remain intact and retain their viability.

My Grandad was a logger out of Marysville Ca, he moved up to Canyonville Oregon, becoming a hard-rock miner in his later years, Dad was a lumber sorter at Roseburg lumber in Dillard ore. I mostly logged as I saw Grandad put a lot of money in the ground with not much return, I came to northern Cal to run a 7 inch Mighty Lite dredge on the Middle Fork of the Yuba for a friend, I would have made more money working for McDonald's, but I have to say it was a lot of fun. After leaving the river I logged for local companies, becoming a foreman for one friend for 8 years until he quit logging for health reasons.  four years ago I ran across a friend I hadn't seen in a few years, after finding out he was going to hike in to a remote hard-rock mine I went with him for safety's sake, the second trip in he asked me to join him in a partnership and I did what I said I would never do hahahahaa, we now have five hard-rock claims, all on USFS, and the headaches are starting, so here I am, we, my partner and I, started researching case law two years ago, I like this site a lot, and am more than ready to share my findings and thoughts. Thank You for this Site, Big Al

Hi,
My name Is Jimmy Smith.  New to mining.  Joined the GPAA as a first step.  Now I see that There is much, much more that I need to acquire in terms of knowledge and skills.  So here I am.  I want to be able to speak intelligently to those who seek to undermine or steal away my liberties and freedoms afforded to me.  

I have been prospecting in the Stanislaus National Forest area.  I want to be ready for them when they inevitably decide to "tread on me".

Just found your forum today and decided to join. My name is Paul and I live in that great state of Wyoming. I love prospecting and exploring but don't get to do nowhere near as much as I'd like with my job and coaching responsibilities. I look forward to retiring in 6 years and doing a LOT more prospecting and exploring. I've prospected quite a bit in the desert over the years and a little up here when I get the time. Looking forward to learning some mining law on your site as I get the time! Thanks!

I am also new. I tried Prescott National Forest and was run off by the Forest Rangers. He said, They didn't want homeless people living in the forest. Where rich people let they're kids and teens run amuck. I moved my campsite to Mayer AZ. And the same Ranger warned me that if he see's me again. He'll write me a ticket. I was told, I was only allowed to camp for 14 days out of 90 days. In the 1.3 million acre National Forest. I had a apartment in Prescott, AZ. He didn't care. I was not homeless. I had a camper on an 2008 Pickup. Oh Yea! I'm also a retired Navy Vet.
