Excellent from start to finish.....Theory that I support and should be put into practice. Mining History is quickly being erased from existence.....I give sites like the stamp mill, "Lucky Baldwin" (Big Bear, Holcomb Valley, CA) a couple years before its timbers fail and come crashing down...Help Save True American History....

Lastly, I was stolen from in 2010 out at "summit Spring" out around searchlight,nevada and all the papers and 12inche tall quarts crystal that I had for 25years(which was givin to me,came to a total of $1,00.00. Researchers hurt because of all the time effort reading and so on go get the information. Papers that I had on Danby,california(1930s) cameras that I never got developed. I want back!

Alot of us researchers have no motorized vehicles and let me mention that IS alot of walking. Also unless I'm wrong,a good researcher: reads,re-reads,visualizes in ones mind what the area was like . Also draws it out on paper,becomes thier own map makers and complies what they came up with and re goes out to the area of interest and tries thier theroy.

to onctinue.The researchers should be recognized as the original finder. Also, was blm called B.of Reclamation" during Custers time? Us researchers would like these areas of "history kept in good shape for all to see and to go and enjoy. Kids are not learning the past history and this history is what makes up America and it should be taught to all ages in the schools.

It's great that the blm is doing this. Alot of us "researchers do have a question that needs tobe answered. Who has found all the 1800s claim papers? Honestly is it BLM? How many of us researchers ever get the credit when we find something? Very few and that is not fare it isn't always the universities or other places that make a find and these researchers should be recognized as the sloe find
