Summit Engineering performed a complex boundary survey consisted of over ninety patented mining claims in the remote areas of eastern Nevada near Mt. Hamilton. This resurvey of claims that dates back to the late 1860’s consisted of approximately 19 linear miles of U.S.F.S. boundary encompassing 430 acres of private land. The project included field reconnaissance, identification and acceptance of original section corners, mineral monuments and patented mining claim corners. Surveying was performed in accordance with USFS standards to ensure accuracies prescribed by the USFS, techniques on monumenting and rehabilitating the ±200 public land corners, as well as the marking and posting of U.S.F.S. boundary. This project covered an area that has seen a lot of activity over the past 140 years resulting in many un-patented claim corners, destroyed corners, replaced corners as well as many unfaithful corner reestablishments.
Summit’s boundary experience and in-depth knowledge of the Public Land Survey System facilitated the difficult decision making necessary in resolving this complex boundary that resulted in a fourteen-sheet Record of Survey. (Refer to Record of Survey No. 1141, recorded 12/15/2011 in White Pine County Official Records, file no. 0355571, White Pine County, Nevada.)
