    Lode Vs. Placer ?

    Definition clarification:What is a correct definition on a Lode mining claim?What is a correct definition of a Placer mining claim?It would seem that the answer is easy and straight forward but consider this:If I have a lode claim that covers some dry river wash and an adjoining hillside and someone else files a placer claim over my Lode claim;1. What area can they legally work?2. Can they work any land in my claim if "I was there first"?3. Can I state that the fine gold, 200 mesh minus fine, in the dry river wash is gold that washed off of the hillside and has come from a lode ore body and therefore is considered lode, even if it is in the dry river wash.4. Can the new comer go up on the hillside and work the soil, without crushing anything, and claim that they are capturing the 200 mesh minus gold therefor they have placer mining rights on my lode claim?5. When can free gold in lode mining claim area be considered placer gold?6. Is free gold always considered placer gold?Thank you to all who help me answer these questions.
