These are “Unpatented” mining claims, which means that you will own the mineral rights to the property but not the actual land. The land belongs to the American people and is public land administered by the Bureau of Land Management and/or the United States Forest Service. By current federal regulations, you cannot build a home or cabin on unpatented mining claims. You may build a shed for storage of your equipment (with proper permits) as long as you are actively mining your claim.
