Tucker v. Masser, 113 U.S. 203 (1885), was an action of ejectment for the possession of three lots in what is known as Stevens' and Leiter's subdivision of the City of Leadville, in Lake county, Colorado. The court found that this case for a placer mining claim composed of distinct mining locations some of which were made after 1870 and together embracing over one hundred and 60 acres (240,000 m2) is valid. Smelting Co. v. Kemp, 104 U.S. 636 (1881), was carefully considered, and was again affirmed.[1]
