Buena Vista and Elephant Rock. New claims in the area have been verified as valid with the proper exception clause GPOC was unaware of. All of the area below the GPOC claims has been claimed and is no longer available to the public, so be advised that you may not propsect in there any longer without permission from the claim holders. That's right folks. We have lost another public area. There are some roads that these claim owners have closed and it is being investigated by the BLM, as they are not allowed to close or deny public access to the properties to anyone who is not prospecting. Locals use some of these areas for camping and picnicing, and they must be allowed to access them as before.
Good Prospecting to You
