Here is a BLM issued map of all abandoned claims. To purchase read my blog.

You have been telling people that this is the 11th hour.

Now you must go back & tell people  this  is  "The Hour" .

Are these abandoned silver, copper, etc., mines, or what?

you would need to research the specific area of concern. The area I live near (NW Az) is known for lode claim minerals (stripes in mountains) with gold silver & lead... They were hand chiseled drift cuts & shafts several hundred feet in length .

Very interesting, terrypat.  I notice that there is a clump of sites available around the Utah-Colorado border.  That is the area that I recommend, especially the La Sal mountains.  (See our topic "Favorable Locations" at http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php?topic=1118.msg41167#msg41167 and read old messages.)   Many mines operated there in times past;  I don't know about now.

jimfarmer, that's probably where i'll be headed (la sal mtns).  i'm looking into buying some land there, just something small, close to a source of water.
