Just wondering what the laws are regarding extracting gold on your own property?
Can you search by hand (no machinery) as much as you want? Would selling that gold be taxable?
Or do you have to have a permit to take ANY gold from the land regardless of how you extract it (by hand or with machinery?)
If someone has a claim or permit over your land do you need to buy this permit off of them before you can extract any minerals from your own land?
I know the permit holder can’t do much without the land owners consent but how does it work for the owner if they want to extract the minerals and someone else already has a permit over their land?
Just wondering how the laws around this work if anyone can help?
