All mining claimants, except those qualifying for a small miner waiver, must pay a $100 maintenance fee. "It is important that min- ers file the appropriate forms by the deadline, so they will not risk loosing their claims," said BLM State Director Ed Hastey. "Our employees are available to answer any ques- tions miners may have con- , cerning their mining claims." Each payment should be accompanied by a written list of claim and site names and BLM serial numbers for which the maintenance fee is being paid. All certificates and fees must be filed or paid at the BLM State Office, 2135 Butano Way, Sacramento, Calif. 95825. The office is open for payment or filings from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Cash, check or credit card (Visa or MasterCard) are ac- ceptable. Claims for which no maintenance fee has been paid or no qualified waiver has been filed will be declared abandoned and void. The annual filing require- ments are due each year on August 31. However, since this year August 31 falls on a Sunday and Monday, Sep- tember I is a holiday, mining claim forms and fees will be accepted until September 2, 1997. For more information on the claim fee or the small miner waiver, call the BLM's Public Information Office at (916) 978-4400.
