2004 Final Regulations

  1. 43 CFR Part 2930--Permits for Recreation on Public Lands, 2/6/04, Federal Register, 69 FR 5702-5707
  2. 43 CFR Parts 3830 and 3834--Location, Recording, and Maintenance of Mining Claims or Sites, 7/1/04, Federal Register, 69 FR 40293-40296

  • 43 CFR Part 2930--Permits for Recreation on Public Lands (Federal Register, 2/6/04, 69 FR 5702-5707).  This final rule--
    • Amends the BLM regulations on Special Recreation Permits by changing the maximum term for these permits to 10 years instead of 5 years.  The reason for this change is to add a reasonable expectation of continuity for outfitters, guides, and other small businesses that provide services to recreationists on public lands.
    • Amends the BLM regulations on Recreation Use Permits for fee areas by adding a section on prohibited acts and penalties.  This new provision is necessary to give BLM law enforcement personnel authority to cite persons who do not pay fees or otherwise do not follow the regulations on Recreation Use Permits.

  • 43 CFR Parts 3830 and 3834--Location, Recording, and Maintenance of Mining Claims or Sites (Federal Register, 7/1/04, 69 FR 40293-40296).  The BLM is amending the regulations to respond to the law requiring that BLM--
    • Adjust the location and maintenance fees on unpatented mining claims or sites;
    • Adjust these fees every five years or sooner if conditions warrant;
    • Base the adjustment upon the change in the Consumer Price Index as published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics; and
    • Give notice of any fee adjustment in the Federal Register by July 1st of any given assessment year in order for such adjustment to be effective by the beginning of the following assessment year.
