Life Membership dues are $1,500, payable at the rate of $240.00 per year. Dues must be paid a year in advance, beginning Jan 1st of each year. There is a one-time initiation fee of $15.00. Also, a $44.00 Federal Mining Charge (FMC), in addition to the membership dues, helps support the claims maintenance fees the club incurs, and is paid to the BLM. This expense is currently about $44,000 each year. All members, through their annual dues and maintenance fees, contribute in paying this fee each year.
Based on the above, the payment required at time of application is $299.00 ($240 dues + $15 initiation fee + $44 FMC)
