Tucson — A Tucson-based mining company has announced plans to stake mining claims on a number of home sites located north of the Pioneer Hills and Chaparral Estates Subdivisions.
Bronco Creek Exploration, Inc. has sent certified letters to more than 30 homeowners in this area announcing their exploration work in the Globe-Miami area has “now advanced to the point that we feel it is important to protect our general interests where your land is located.” Bronco spokesperson Chelsea Kriener went on to say in this correspondence, “Therefore we have filed necessary documents with the BLM to initiate actions to stake mining claims (on your property).”
The Arizona Silver Belt has learned that the more than 30 home owners that received the certified letters reside in either section 10 or 15 Township One North Range 15 East.
In addition to the new mining claims the company now plans to stake in our community, Bronco Creek already has mining claims on some 8,000 acres of federal land in the Globe-Miami area which is covered by 412 unpatented lode mining claims for two separate projects.
One is its Jasper Canyon Project involving 3,000 acres of government land at Jasper Canyon north of Globe Hills in Township 2 North Range 15 East.
The second is being called the Copper Springs Exploration Project involving 5,000 acres of federal lands in the Globe-Miami mining district northeast of the Pinal Mountains including a state of Arizona Mineral Exploration Permit. Generally speaking, a lode claim is about 20 acres in size each. According to the company web page, the firm is seeking partnerships for these projects.For the complete article see the 11-21-2012 issue.
