Mining Paperwork

In these articles we cover all of the basic mining paperwork that a small scale miner might have to deal with, including how to file Annual Maintenance or Waiver and how to write a proper Notice of Intent or Plan of Operations.

How to File Annual Maintenance or Waiver

In order to keep your claim valid you will either need to pay an Annual Maintenance Fee to the BLM, or file a Small Miners Waiver before September 1st of each year. This section covers some general guidelines for renewing your claim and will help you determine if you can skip the Maintenance Fee and file the Small Miners Waiver.

Notice of Intent and Plan of Operations

In these guides we cover the mining basics. Things that every new claim owner should know before they start mining. Helping you to get the most out of your claim. Being prepared makes for success on your claim. Expect topics from how to high grade gold ore to how to determining the value of further development. We have been there and done that and we pass that information on to you!

We are always looking for new topics to cover. If you have suggestions send us a message. We would love to hear from you.
