BLM closes OR office at sight of OCers?

It appears the BLM is drawing the attention of many people in attempting to shut down a local mining operation. Oddly enough the BLM appears to be acting on behalf of Chinese company/companies, but the U.S. Miners have held the mining claim since the 1800's reportedly???

This seems very Bundy Ranch like to me. BLM seems to have learned from that fiasco and is taking a very stealth approach here, from their actions to date. Let's hope they (BLM), don't feel the need to prove a point after being forced to call for help & evacuation at the Bundy Ranch in NV last year.

Here's a local write up:
