RENO — To provide guidance and tips on public mining claims, the Nevada Bureau of Land Management will host a free workshop from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 28 on the third floor of the Nugget Casino Resort, 1100 Nugget Ave., Sparks.
The workshop will cover topics including locating, mapping and filing claims, land status, transfers of interest, waivers and annual maintenance fees, bonding and surface disturbance.
“There is a lot of information regarding mining claims and having BLM staff on hand to answer questions at workshops like this is a way for the BLM to improve customer service,” said Lacy Trapp, acting branch chief for BLM Nevada’s Solid Mineral Resource division.
Space is limited for the workshop and those interested should RSVP by June 8. To RSVP or for more information contact Tina Chafin, 775-861-6636, firstname.lastname@example.org.
