Join the Mining Alliance

When you join the mining alliance you're supporting the legal efforts to restore your mining rights. The Western Mining Alliance has been litigants against the state of California since 2009 and we are responsible for half of the legal bills to keep the lawsuits going. It's your support which allows us to stay in the fight. We also make an annual trip to Washington DC to continue to push for changes in existing laws which will reduce the regulatory burden on the small miner. There are no professional lobbying groups which support small miners, we fund our efforts on your contributions. We are a completely volunteer organization and we've never paid ourselves a dime to support small miners.
