The BLM Legacy Rehost system (LR2000) has been shut down. I do not know if this is temporary or a permanent site closure while the BLM launches the Mineral & Land Records System (MLRS) program that is replacing the LR2000.
I have had a few discussions with different BLM regions over the last few months concerning the launch of the MLRS which on the surface, appears to be a more in-depth program that allows a great deal of additional functionality and has been promised as easier to use than the LR2000.
The full MLRS was not functional as of 12/14/2020 - 0600 MST.
Once fully launched, the MLRS can be used with or without an account. For those of us with accounts to MLRS it will launch in phases and Initially we will be able to use MLRS for mining-related claims, such as submitting a new lode, placer, tunnel site, or mill site mining claim.
You will also be able to take action on an existing lode, placer, tunnel, or mill site claim, including:
- Transfer of Interest
- Paying maintenance fees
- Submitting Affidavit of Assessment Work & Proof of Labor
- Designating Active-Duty Military Status
- Initiating an appeal to IBLA
I highly suggest that you please follow the link below and read the complete FAQS page.
Although there will be a learning curve to the MLRS, I am looking forward to the updated way of interacting with the BLM reporting and functions.
