CHAPTER 12A - ENTRY AND LOCATION ON COAL LANDS ON DISCOVERY OF

SOURCE MATERIAL

-HEAD-

Sec. 541. Entry and location; filing of copy of notice of mining

location; report and payment for lignite mined; mineral patents;

reservation of minerals to United States

-STATUTE-

Subject to the conditions and provisions of this chapter and to

any valid intervening rights acquired under the laws of the United

States, public lands of the United States classified as or known to

be valuable for coal subject to disposition under the mineral

leasing laws and which are open to location and entry subject to

the conditions and provisions of chapter 12 of this title, unless

embraced within a coal prospecting permit or lease, shall also be

open to location and entry under the mining laws of the United

States upon the discovery of a valuable source material occurring

within any seam, bed, or deposit of lignite in such lands:

Provided, That a copy of the notice of any mining location made for

source material occurring in any such bed, seam, or deposit, shall

be filed for record in the land office of the Bureau of Land

Management for the State in which the claim is situated within

ninety days after the date of its location: Provided further, That

the claimant to any such mining location shall report annually to

the Mining Supervisor of the Geological Survey the amount of

lignite mined or stripped in the recovery of such valuable source

material during each calendar year and tender payment to him of 10

cents per ton thereon. Any mineral patents issued hereunder shall

be made subject to the recording and payment requirements of this

section and shall contain a reservation to the United States of all

Leasing Act minerals owned by the United States other than lignite

containing valuable source material and lignite necessary to be

stripped or mined in the recovery of such material. Mining claims

located and mineral patents issued under the provisions of this

chapter shall not include rights to lignite not containing valuable

source material except to the extent it may be necessary to mine or

strip such lignite in order to mine the source material and, with

respect to lode claims, shall not include extralateral rights. For

all purposes of this chapter "source material" and "lignite" shall

have the meanings given in section 541e of this title.

-STATUTE-

Any mining claim located in a manner prescribed by the mining

laws of the United States upon lands of the character described in

section 541 of this title, prior to May 25, 1955, if based upon a

mineral leasing laws, subject, however, to the provisions of

section 541 of this title: Provided, That no extralateral rights

shall attach to any mining location validated under this section:

And provided further, That the locator or locators of such a mining

claim shall, not later than one hundred and eighty days from and

said amended notice is, within the said one-hundred-and-eighty-day

period, filed in the land office of the Bureau of Land Management
