  1. I am interested in possibly claiming some mine dumps of past producing gold mines on Public Lands but have a couple of questions. 1) Placer or Lode Claim? Reviewing the definitions of claims by the BLM, seems that mine dumps should be claimed as Placer claims and not Lode Claims. 2) Placer Claim over an Exhisting Lode Claim? Can I establish a placer claim a the dump if someone else has establish a lode claim that runs through the dump? What are things to consider for these scenarios?
