Claim Guard is a full-service program that ensures your investment is properly filed, maintained, and monitored each year, from the County level to the BLM. Simply pay once a year and Burgex will do the rest.
Who oversees annual claim maintenance filings for your mining claims? Is it a staff Geologist? A law firm perhaps? Or are you taking on this burden yourself? Every year Burgex receives phone calls from very upset people that have forgotten or overlooked the filing deadline and lost all their claims. Did you also know that there is no grace period from the Bureau of Land Management?
Improper filing means:
-Losing all rights to your mining claims- ZERO mineral rights!
-Any grandfathered rights the claim may have had- GONE!
-Huge risk from claim jumpers!
-Starting over completely
-Re-stake claims ($200-$1,000+ per claim)
-Re-file with BLM and County ($255+ per 20 acres)
This simple mistake can cost your company millions of dollars and is a massive headache to correct – if it can be corrected at all.
We are here to help! Chances are you have already worked with us before and you know we take care of everything related to your mining claims. Questions about your claims? We have answered them.
