In chapters 13 and 14 we saw how a series of laws and presidential directives restricted both the amount of land available for the location of mineral deposits and the variety of minerals locatable under the Mining Law of 1872. In this chapter we will consider the specific minerals that are available under the location, leasing, and sale programs of the federal government and also note the distinction between deposits of common varieties as opposed to those deposits that may have distinct and special values.
