FORMS FOR LOCATION NOTICES.

The following forms for mineral location notices have been found to fill the requirements of the statutes :11

NOTICE OF QUARTZ LODE LOCATION. Notice is hereby given, That I,

a citizen of the United States, have discovered a vein of rock in place, carrying gold, silver, copper, and other valuable deposits, upon which I have erected a discovery monument and posted this notice, as hereinafter set forth; that in accordance with the provision of Chapter 6, Title 32 of the Revised Statutes of the United States and the laws of the State of California, I hereby claim fifteen hundred linear feet of said vein, measured thereon as hereinafter set forth. Said discovery was made on the day of

19---- Immediately upon making the same, and on the

day of

That the following is a description of said location as marked on the ground : 1 commencing at the

direction; thence ||

Locator.

11 Wilson's Mining Laws, 1911, pp. 60-62.

*Make this description in accordance with the facts, as "The general course of said vein is north and south. I claim in length thereon 500 feet north and 1,000 feet south from said discovery monument."

†If the claim is upon surveyed land, give the section, township and range, if possible. This is not required by law, but makes a much better description.

Here refer to some natural object or permanent monument so as to identify the locality of the claim, in compliance with section 2324, Revised Statutes U. S. A road, house, tree, known mountain or peak, government corner, mill, or known mining claim, are such objects or monuments. As, "About one mile directly east from John Doe's quartz mill and 400 rods west from the Last Hope mine," etc.

Here state: "Commencing at the N. E. corner of said claim, a mound of rocks 4 ft high,” or at any other corner or point in the boundary; give the distance and direction from this initial monument to the discovery monument, and then locate the discovery with reference to some natural object or permanent monument.

|| Here follows a description of the claim from the initial monument. For instance: “Thence 600 ft. northwesterly to the N. W. corner of said claim, at which point is a mound of rocks 23 ft. high, marked so-and-so (if marked); thence 1,500 ft. southwesterly to the S. W. corner of said claim, being a mound of rocks," etc.; so going around the claim to the point of beginning.

NOTICE OF LOCATION OF PLACER CLAIM. Notice is hereby given, That citizen---- of the United States, h---- this

day of 19----, discovered a valuable placer deposit within the limits of this claim ; that by virtue of said discovery,

ha---- located, and hereby locate and claim the following described land, situate in Mining District,

County, California, to

of section Township

Range

B. and M., containingacres. † Said claim is hereby named

Placer Claim. Said claim is marked upon the ground as follows: 1

This notice is posted on a mound of rocks at the point of discovery, situated §

Locator.

*The statute provides that the locator must give "a description of the claim by reference to legal subdivisions of sections, if the location is made in conformity with the public surveys; otherwise a description with reference to some natural object or permanent monument as will identify the claim."

† When not described by legal subdivisions, the description should conform to that contained in the final certificate of location of a lode claim.

The statute provides that, whether described by legal subdivisions or not, the location shall be marked by the locator on the ground, and as the affidavit to be filed later is not required to contain a description of the claim, we think this notice should state how the location is marked; as, for instance, "At the N. E. corner of said tract a mound of rocks 3 ft. high, marked so-and-so (if marked), and at the N. W. corner a stake in a mound of rocks, marked," etc., and so on for each monument enclosing the claim.

& Here state where the discovery is located, as, for instance, “20 feet S. W. of the N. E. corner monument."

The foregoing form of placer notice may be used for location of all deposits which are classed under placer laws.

A duplicate of either of these notices must be filed for record with the county recorder within thirty days from the discovery; and the locator is allowed thirty days to mark his location on the ground.

DETERMINATION OF MINERAL SAMPLES. Samples (limited to three at one time) of any mineral found in the state may be sent to the Bureau for identification, and the same will be classified free of charge. No samples will be determined if received from points outside the state. It must be understood that no assays, or quantitative determinations will be made. Samples should be in lump form if possible, and marked plainly with name of sender on ourside of package, etc. No samples will be received unless delivery charges are prepaid. A letter should accompany sample, giving locality where mineral was found and the nature of the information desired.
