Documents to File with County

All mining claim documents must be recorded in the county recorder’s office under State Law. However, the only document that BLM must receive that shows the county information is the amended location certificates. All amendments are required to be recorded with the county. If the BLM issues a Notice letter requiring an amended location certificate, due to a defect, the claimant has 30 days to submit that amended location certificate. If a claimant chooses to amend a location certificate on their own initiative, it must be submitted to BLM within 90 days of the amended date. See 43 CFR 3833.22(a)
