California Dredging Ban News

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.

Update from Dave McCracken on 10/17/2014

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.

Our industry has been held down by unreasonable over-regulation for so long, it is going to take some time to absorb how far-reaching the implications are by this published Decision. As promised, I have explained some of my own reasoning in our October newsletter why the published Decision has completely turned our situation around. I have also dropped the "500-pound bomb," suggesting that the Third Appellate has inferred that dredgers do not need a permit from the State to operate a suction dredge if the State is refusing to issue them!

You can find it all right here:
