Is it to easy to tie up cells for years?

Do you guys think this is a problem for people that want to actually go mining?  I think the hole system has to change.

Maybe you can test for two years and then you go mining or have to let it go back to the MTO?

Hi.GG the answer is yes.The big boys can tie up Huge tracts of land.Thousands of hectares for very little money.They claim it under mineral which only requires 5.00 per hectare of work a yearThat eqates into 1man man working a cell per day.Add in the allowable expensives and that one man can cover many cells per day.Add in some machine work and they can cover thousands of cells per day.Add up very little or no work they can tie up that ground foreverAll tax deductible of course.Now if you can find some stakeable  placer inside those claims you are free to stake it.Alot of the big companies are not worried about placer in some areas.Luck Mcbain.

I was thinking placer cell and I think there is to much non activity for big and small .People just trying to tern them over for a buck . It would be nice if things opened up for people that actually wanted to go placer mining.

You do not have to own tenure to go placer mining. Do not blame the Mineral Tenure Act for people hanging onto their tenure for long periods of time.
Case in point - Gold Rush Parker Schnabel worked ground and made money (perhaps) for years, all without owning the property he mined.
Whether you are in Yukon, BC, Peru or ???? - the systems are the same and people who want to mine do just fine.
If a person is serious about mining - they go mining! If you just want to pan a few flakes - well that is another beast altogether.

Well my understanding is the only money made was as a cast member of the TV "Drama" show that they call reality...not from the gold mining.
Easy to make some money when the land and equipment for the most part doesn't cost you as much as it would anyone else.

No different than Storage Wars....   

Sorry.

But to your point,  it doesn't take much work to extend your claim,  I can manage 8-9 cells at the most  per year,  anything past that and i'd be spinning my wheels and not actually working any of the ground properly.    But even the ones I only put 8-12 hours into,  I still deserve to keep them.

I am thankful for the ones I have however,  as it appears there is a new person in town with the ability to shark them all faster than anyone!
I bet he's affiliated with one of the former ones.    I see he has a website and 20-30 claims up for sale now!!!

I am guessing this discussion is about BC.  I kinda like the idea of idle claims.  The gold isn't going anywhere in a hurry.   Otherwise, claims that are heavily worked are pretty much depleted, unless you are on a large river like the Fraser where the flood gold is replenished.  Someday, all idle claims get released or sold and have wonderful potential for the new owner.  Of course, you have to be fast and lucky with the online MTO, when something good actually becomes available.  Unfortunately, if you want a claim in a hurry then you will probably have to negotiate to buy or lease one.  Getting a decent claim will get more difficult or expensive as the price of gold goes up.  I feel badly (or laugh at) anybody who buys a claim from a flipper who is selling a good story.  Like anything in this life, it is buyer beware.

I'm probably not allowed to post these links...however here is just a fraction of the people selling claims on a larger scale, creating the idle claims.

If you want a place to work, why not contact any one of these guys/gals & ask if you can spend a day there - you'd have a be a real a$$hat to not let someone use your claim once.

Ask most claim owners: they will be happy you asked rather than sneak and say "yes".  I have let people onto my claims.  All I wanted was a report that could be used for the SOW and tell me what was found and where.
