a. Mining claim to which a deed from the U.S. Government has not been received. A claim is subject to annual assessment work, to maintain ownership. Weed, 2
b. A claim that requires $100 of work to be done each year. A claim cannot be patented until $500 has been spent on it. von Bernewitz
c. A mining claim for which the holder has no patent. Under the Multiple Surface Use Act of 1955, discoveries of common varieties of sand, stone, gravel, pumice, cinders, and clay cannot be located as mining claims; however, it does not affect the validity of a discovery in these materials based on the presence of other valuable minerals. Lewis
