Minard Run v USFS
This is an interesting case that deals with the split estate:
Miners WIN $107 million jury’s verdict

With Sacramento County reeling from a federal court jury’s landmark $107 million judgment against it, plaintiffs’ lawyers said Wednesday the “undue influence” case should serve as a warning shot for any governmental entity that plays political favorites.

“The theme I saw in this case, that the jury saw, was a local government that got so close to these big companies they were regulating that they basically got dependent on t ...
Dredge Permits
Well, I'm getting ahead of the permits, looking to make a solid defense for when I get caught dredging without one. There are three court decisions I sorta remember, but not from where.

1: said that we have a right to extract the minerals on our claims (redundant, I know).

RS 2477 Help Needed
I've recently filed on an old silver mine, which should pay nicely. There are three old tracks or roads that go to the mine, all of which predate FLPMA. One of the tracks is closed with a pole barrier across it, one is "decommissioned", and the other has a USFS gate on it. I want to avoid going the permit route on the claim, but from all the reading I've done on the rs 2477, I still can't find anything that points to where I can just go out and use one of the old roads and Forest Servi ...
