Definition of lands valuable for minerals
As used in the mining law, applies to all lands chiefly valuable for nonmetalliferous deposits, such as alum, asphaltum, borax, guano, diamonds, gypsum, marble, mica, slate, amber petroleum, limestone, and building stone, rather than for agricultural purposes. Such lands are subject to disposition by the United States under the mining laws only.
