CARSON CITY, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Nevada State Office and Carson City Sierra Front Field Office have made a determination to allow Comstock Mining’s Color of Title Claim application to the parcel Storey County calls Lot 51 to move forward.
As the claim moves forward, BLM says it is allowing limited interim use of the haul road segment that crosses Lot 51.
The Act requires specific documentation to make a valid claim.
Last summer, the alleged trespass case was closed. That case involved, amongst other issues, Comstock’s use of a road segment across the parcel Storey County calls Lot 51 without authorization. Exclusive use and development of that and other road segments on public land in the area is currently being analyzed.
Although the trespass case has been closed, BLM says Comstock Mining is in the process of clearing clouded title to Lot 51 through their Color of Title Class I Claim.
