While a diminishing art, our firm understands and counsels not only on the 1872 General Mining Act, but also represents hard rock mining operators in deals and disputes.  Hard Rock mining might seem a vestige of Western lore, but we believe the history and vast resources of gold and silver, lithium, rare earth, and other locatable minerals remain a fixture of our natural resources treasure.
