Effective October 1, 1994, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has been prohibited by an act of Congress from accepting or processing new mineral patent applications--by the secretary of the interior issued Secretarial Order 3163
Patented mining claims include the deed to the property. In order to be patented, significant mineral values are proven to exist on the property, or the patented status would not have been granted. When you own a patented property you own the minerals and the land. Unlike mining claims, permanent structures can be built on patented properties, and the land can be divided and sold like deeded real estate.
Depending upon when the Patented status was granted, many local and federal laws do not apply to Patented claims. For all of these reasons Patented mining properties are preferred and bring in higher prices than mining claims.
