There are four basic requirements for making a valid mining location. (1) The location must be made on unappropriated public domain; (2) the lands must not have been withdrawn from mineral entry; (3) the mining claim must be based on a discovery of a valuable mineral deposit other than a common variety or those covered by the federal mineral leasing acts; and (4) the claim boundaries must be marked and a notice posted and recorded.
