Mining Claim Research: The Best New Resource

The best resource for researching active lode and placer mining claims in the Western United States. Take your mining claim research to the next level!

Burgex Inc. is a proud 2017 sponsor of Land Matters, the best new resource for mining claim research.

As a mining consulting company that is significantly engaged in the location of lode and placer mining claims throughout the Western United States, we have sponsored the mining claim maps for Arizona and Nevada.

We first stumbled upon Land Matters in early 2016 and have since found it to be an invaluable resource for quickly doing active mining claims research and finding areas that are open for mineral location. Over time we have found Land Matters to be our first step for researching new areas that clients would like to have staked. This tool has also been very useful for keeping track of recent trends, such as the emerging lithium boom in Nevada and Utah.
