The Aten Indian Reservation will file a claim on all metals on federal land because the use of the land is not being returned back to the citizens of the United State for reduction of taxes. 10 trillion dollars worth of strategic metals is being handed out to CIA miners a drip at a time.

Mining firm profits from public lands remain a mystery, new GAO study shows

The federal government has no idea how much gold, copper and other hard-rock minerals are being extracted from public lands each year — nor how much the minerals are worth — because the companies licensed to operate the mines pay no royalties, according to a reportthe Government Accountability Office will make public Wednesday.
The new report, requested by Rep. Raul M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Sen. Tom Udall (D-N.M.), could spur a renewed push to reform the 140-year-old law governing U.S. hard-rock mining. Under the General Mining Act of 1872, the government charges mining companies $189 to locate a claim and then $140 annually to maintain it after the first year. What the companies extract from public terrain is theirs to sell on the open market.
