What's Going On in Galice - The SHORT Answer...The short version of what's going on in Galice is this - the Sugar Pine Mine is what's known as a 'Pre-55' claim. That means it was established before the Surface Resources Act was put in place in 1955 and as such the mine controls the SURFACE, unlike other, regular mining claims, which only have rights to the minerals BENEATH the surface.
BLM is unlawfully trying to take the Surface Rights from the Sugar Pine Mine in order to dictate to us what we can and cannot do.
That's it, in a nutshell.
