  1. Reading surveying notes from the 1890's, the survivor had to survey underground placer workings on the located claim he was surveying. They probably had to verify there was no known lode veins in the workings. When he signed off on the survey, from my reading of surveying notes, he had to state if there were known lode veins on the claim. When the located claim was patented, how did the yes/no on known lode veins from the survey effect the mineral rights on the patented claim? Can mineral rights on a patented claim be split between surface and subsurface minerals?
