Howdy miners!

It's been said many times that we need to act like miners if we are trying to use the mining law while proclaiming we have the right to mine on small scale levels.
We absolutely do have that right! But the classification of this scale of mining is quite vague.

Here is something that we have been working on for sometime.
We think this basic lease agreement will help any claim owner (patented or location) and/or independent miner show purpose, gain, compensation which equals value to the claim owner for work done.

In other words.....You as an independent small scale miner now have proof in the field that YOUR ACTIVITIES ARE REASONABLY INCIDENT TO MINING!

Private individuals and clubs holding claims should be able to use it as is or modified if needed.....but let an official come out and tell you that you ain't mining now! happy.gif ph34r.gif

Thinking is that you the miner will print out, fill in all your info and proposed work....then send it off to the claim owner for his/her/their approval and signature....Claim owner reviews and signs if agreeable. Then claim owner makes a copy of the lease to send back to the miner. (claim owner keeps orignal)

Check it over and submit changes you think may need to be added.

This document will be kept up for anyone and everyone to use as the CP club's holiday gift to the mining community ..... smile.gif
You may download and print your own copy of this file from the link below.
File should print out just right in wordpad with two pages.

Grrrrr! dry.gif quote box skewed it a bit but trust me....it prints out right from the link below.... laugh.gif

I think your mining claim lease is a good idea if people would use it. From what I have found out on the use of my claims by other people it is real hard to get them to do anything other than a verbal agreement. I made a form for a mineral report and posted it on my web site so they could fill it out from their computer and click the link to email it directly to me.... I have had 1 returned in the last 6 months. It is like the claim report of the GPAA which I bet they don't get many of sent back to them also.

Thanks Sparky. I understand what you mean.
Let me explain this a bit further though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think what you described seems to me is more of a polite courtesy report?
This lease agreement is in fact a contractual agreement which stipulates the reporting of the recorded information. Whether or not the miner choses to report the information as agree'd upon could result in the future denial of any application to lease at the claim owners discretion. (stated in lease)

The lease also demonstrates on site (to over bearing officials/would be opinion pushers laugh.gif ) the contractual agreement to perform a mining activity for the claim owner by the miner.

Folks have been asking for something they can carry in the field that helps them on the individual level.........this is it! Rather than printing 1000's of pages of law quotes and and and......that dang case gets heavy believe me! laugh.gif
But the miner her/himself will have to chose to follow the guideline as written in the lease/laws......just as a "bonafide miner" has to make his/her call when mining as to things like, when to file plans, what equipment will be used, how and when reclamation will be finished, etc etc etc.

Point being that those who want to act as miners will......the others will do as they do now anyway......... dry.gif unfortunately. But having the resources available to help oneself is half the battle.
When used properly this document will demonstrate an activity "reasonably incident to mining".

Did I clear anything up or make it more confusing? biggrin.gif

Who else has some thoughts?

Dan i like this idea! it gives you a little more controll over the claim and the people that are using it. and i always send in the reports to the GPAA on claims that ive been to with the gps location and any road directions needed to get a person there.

Thanks Russ. happy.gif
Although the CP club holds no claims itself, some club members chose to offer use of their claims to members.
These lease agreements will be used to help claim owners and miners communicate and coordinate the work on the claim.
2 sheets of paper should be easy for the miner to keep with them while working too....... happy.gif
