has filed an application for land in the mining
claim pursuant to this chapter, based upon occupancy of such claim, whether residential or
otherwise, for any period preceding the final administrative determination of the invalidity of
the mining claim by the Secretary of the Interior or the voluntary relinquishment of the mining claim, whichever occurs earlier. Nothing
contained in this chapter shall be construed as
creating any liability for trespass to the United
States which would not exist in the absence of
this chapter. Relief under this section shall be
limited to persons who file applications for conveyances pursuant to section 701 of this title

In any conveyance under this chapter the mineral interests of the United States in the lands
conveyed are reserved for the term of the estate
