I bought this property back in 1991 from a real estate agent as private property.

The only thing governmental about it is that the survey was done back decades ago as a mining survey.

It is not government owned property.

I know it is confusing

we may be confused, since you said... "I have a 10 acre section of (actually its a mining claim) property "
But you shouldn't be confused as to whether you bought the land or just the rights to the minerals on the land (mining claim). its irrelevant who did the survey, but the federal gov doesn't do mining claim surveys on private land, since mining claims only apply to public lands; perhaps it used to be gov land decades ago. You should have paid for a title search and title insurance when you bought the land.

what questions do you have about developing your private property? the zoning land uses, building code & permits will be specific to your location, so you'll have to research those locally. in Colorado you apply to the state for the water well & septic system permits; then all building permits & inspections are by the County. Depending on your County, they may have additional septic sys requirements on top the minimum required by the state permit. The first question to ask the county, is whether they allow a self contained RV to be used as a temporary living structure on private property. some do, some don't, some place a 30-90 day time limit for living in an RV, some will only allow it after you have an approved well & septic. etc

it is the diana lode parcel 11632

Jim, I guess I don't know what I was asking about.

I just was wondering about only putting a 60 x 60 pad to park the motorhome on while up there. I don't know about water yet but I do know power is near by.

OK Kent ,thank you for getting back to us! You bought the property and own it, you have a Deed to it.........so you can do what ever the you want as long as you follow the local laws. That said, Bulldozer's and Earth moving equipment would be able to anything you want to do with the land............Sounds like you are going to have to pay to drill a water well and have the electric run up there, and what about sewage? If you are going to make it liveable , might just as well have what you will need.......Keep us posted! Have a great Holiday!

Sounds like a nice project Kent. I can't help but I hope everything works out for you!

A PERC test needs to show that you can use the property for septic purposes.

Local laws vary, but rule of thumb is how much time it takes for a given amount of water to drain into the ground.

Yep, too fast or too slow, no good. Requires an engineered system like an ET with liner or even worse, a treated system with lots of moving parts.
