About Us

Having worked in mineral exploration for over 40 years, primarily as a Mineral Landman, claim-staker, and geologist, map-making has always been an integral part of my career. After staking many thousands of mining claims, and drafting hundreds of mining claim maps, of both patented and unpatented claims, and after reviewing many claim-maps plotted by others, I realized that there is a market for professional mining-claim plotting and mapping.  I also provide field services, such as claim staking and field mapping.

We are based in Grand Junction, Colorado.  Much of my work has been in Colorado, Utah, and Nevada, however I have staked mining claims in six additional states.

We can provide maps and drawings in AutoCad, and can provide GIS data either as DXF or SHP files. For field mapping and claim staking I use a mapping-grade Ashtech Promark 100 GPS receiver with accuracy of roughly 1 meter.  GPS accuracy grades are:  Survey Grade = sub-centimeter; Mapping Grade = 3 – 5 feet; Recreational Grade = 5 to 40 feet depending on conditions.
