MAY 2018: UPDATE FROM AMRA ON DREDGING BAN IN CALIFORNIA BEING LIFTED NEXT SPRING
About AMRA American Mining Rights Association is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit, tax-exempt Association based in Coulterville CA. AMRA was created by miners, hikers, hunters and public land users to preserve and maintain their rights as they pertain to the use of our public lands. We are not a hunting, gold, or fishing club, but rather an advocacy association focused on keeping our lands open for everyone to enjoy.
2015-2017: nothing of note to report - lots of false steps and false hope towards a resolution. Keeping the faith that science and fairness will eventually win over shady politics!
Positive Update received from Dave McCracken on 10/17/2014 is below.
Please note these are a third party's opinions only and do not construe legal advice. While the news is certainly positive for dredgers, we recommend proceeding cautiously until more is known. You can be sure the misguided environmentalist lobby and Indian tribes are not finished yet in their attempts to control our rights.

Mining industry wins big in California!
I sent out a notice to everyone as soon as we found out that
the Third Appellate in California issued a landmark Decision
in support of small-scale mining. Then, after you guys directed
an avalanche of letters to the Court, they further decided to
formally publish their Decision. The Decision is full of legal
reasoning which supports our arguments that the State does not
have the authority to materially interfere with the commercial
viability of mining on the public lands.
