Background

The final regulations that are the subject of these corrections reorganized the regulations on locating, filing, and maintaining mining claims or sites by consolidating provisions that were scattered in various portions of Groups 3700 and 3800 into 10 consecutive parts, placing the provisions in logical order, clarifying conflicting language, eliminating duplication, and removing obsolete provisions.
