Annual Filing Service

Advanced Geologic offers a service to file all necessary claim documents with the proper agencies at the appropriate times. The cost of this service covers all of the associated fees for the filings. It only takes one late or improperly filed document to put your claim at risk. Don't take the chance! Let us handle the filings and be assured that your claim will be safe from claim jumpers.

The filing service includes completing the necessary forms, calculating the fees, and filing the documents, in person, with the BLM and the county. Your documents will be stamped "received" that day!

The staff at Advanced Geologic has many years of experience performing the filing service and will guarantee that your paperwork will be done accurately and on time.

Call our office to inquire about pricing and BLM fees.

  • If you own more then ten claims, or are not going to perform labor and improvements:
