Mining Claim Packet
If you would like a copy of the packet, please send an email with your name and address to an adjudicator and one will be sent.
Annual Reminder Packet
The Oregon/Washington office will no longer be mailing an annual reminder packet to holders of mining claims.
The annual reminder will be sent by email through the Mineral and Land Records System (MLRS). Also, by enrolling in the system, you will also receive email updates as documents are received, processed, and accepted.
If you would like forms mailed to you, please email an adjudicator with a list of requested forms.
Appointment with Adjudication
If you have a complex mining issue to discuss with an adjudicator, please request an appointment to speak to them by telephone or Microsoft teams 24 to 48 hours beforehand.
To request an appointment, email the adjudicator with the subject line being appointment request and include in the email the mining claim name, serial number, claim owner(s) name and a brief summary of the issue or concern. This allows the adjudicator time to research the issue prior to the appointment.
Limited in person appointments will be made available for complex mining claim questions unresolved online or by telephone.
