I am new to this forum but have been a member for a while. I love all the hard work and good insights that go into this community.
I thought I might start with a quick question on lease agreements. We are looking at proposing a placer mine lease here in Montana on private land. I assume that if it is unpatented that we need to work with the landowner and get a claim underneath it to start?
My main question is does anyone have a good Lease agreement template for small acreage mining operations (2 - 5 acres)? If not, any guidance on how to prepare one of these would be greatly appreciated.
