I don't like to see anyone lose money on an investment, but without active mining....seems to me the BLM wants their land back. The BLM is the assigned manager for the landowner, the USA.
The history of the Adopt-A-Cabin volunteers involvement out there was chatted around a few campfires I enjoyed. The house and garage had been trashed by locals & others, and was going downhill fast. From what I was told, a lot of labor went into making the house a place one could visit and perhaps make an overnight stay. Once the war of words began and the volunteers left, the place went right back down to its former status as an attractive nuisance.
Many attractive nuisances have lead to accidental deaths, sometimes by children & teens. Many times the absentee landowner is charged for the demolition and reclamation of such sites.
