The claims data included in this package are custom indexes created from LR2000 data distributed by the BLM. The claims data has been merged with coordinate data for PLSS section center points so that claim locations can be displayed by location in Google Earth Pro or GIS applications.
The current package is based on BLM data distributed on August 1, 2020.
The package contains 4 files:
- Placer_Claims_by_PLSS_Section_DATE.csv - only contains active placer claims
- Lode_Claims_by_PLSS_Section_DATE.csv - only contains active lode claims
- Lode_and_Placer_Claims_by_PLSS_Section_Date.csv - contains both placer and lode claims
- Full_Active_Claims_Index_DATE - this is a csv file with the full index of active claims. It has not been merged with location data and is for use in database applications or text editors.
All data is in CSV format.
Also included is a PDF guide on doing claims research with the BLM LR2000 application.
