Property Images Property location map and directions
This is a legally registered, 40 acre gold Mining Claim for sale.
Total price of $3950 for a one time full payment.
A signed contract will precede payment.
The creek runs both on the north half and the south half of this 40 acre claim, being some 2000 feet to prospect.

The town of Hayfork was settled in 1851 during the California Gold Rush, where those first pioneers sought their fortune in the area's surrounding creeks. Total gold production of Trinity County from 1880 through 1959 was 2,036,300 ounces, mostly from placer claims. Our Hayfork Creek mining claims are also all placer claims.
Today, the town and surrounding area has a modern frontier-like lifestyle.
Own your own mining claim on Hayfork Creek and follow in the footsteps of the original California Gold Rush pioneers.

A local prospector has stated, "Some of the best gold mining ground in Northern California is in Trinity County in Hayfork Creek. The conglomerate bottom is a natural gold trap in places where it crosses the stream."
Gold collects in creek beds when quartz rocks containing gold fall into creek beds where the water power has tumbled.
The miners search for those flakes of gold in the sediments at the bottom of these ancient creeks.
This is the definition of a conglomerate creek bottom in gold prospecting.

Year round access as winter snow seldom stays on the ground for long in this area
Hayfork creek is a tributary of the South Fork Trinity River both well known gold prospecting bodies of water.
The locals know the rich gold history and current gold potential on Hayfork Creek.
Another prospector up the creek told us about his ongoing success in finding measureable amounts of gold on this creek.
Camp on your claim, or use the free, secluded campground just up the road:
Shiell Gulch Campground which has a restroom, and is right along Hayfork Creek with picnic tables, though no running water. Camp to the sounds of rushing creek water and catch your dinner, as Hayfork Creek is known for its salmon, trout, and steel head.

This Hayfork Creek Gold #1 mining claim has Hayfork Creek running across its north border, and, all the way across and down its south border, giving you some 2000 feet of creek to pan for gold. This creek is known throughout Trinity County for its recreational gold prospecting.
Its geology is described as a “natural gold trap.”
The locals know Hayfork Creek as one of the top producing gold areas in Northern California.
Now is your opportunity to own a claim on this historically gold rich waterway.

Mining Claims as an investment: if you purchase a claim from us, at no charge, I would help you if you ever decided to sell in the future.
Mining Claims are a great investment, as claims go up in value over time, just as land does. This is one of the areas of the original California Gold Rush.
Owning a mining claim is having access to a lifetime of great family fun and recreation, in a very beautiful, natural setting.

This is a 40 acre unpatented, gold mining placer claim, the Hayfork Creek Gold #1, with the beautiful Hayfork Creek running through the claim in both the north and south, and is in Trinity County, California, in the beautiful mountain range known as the Trinity Alps, and in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Sacramento and Trinity County. You own the mineral rights, not sharing with others, on the 40 acres, and use your 40 acres, recreationally for camping: tent, camper, or RV, and prospecting: an awesome, beautiful area.

With an approved BLM Plan of Operation, a building could be built on the land: any building that benefits and improves the claim, though you cannot permanently live on a mining claim. Current usage, is what the BLM calls, Casual Use: panning, shovel, rock hammer, metal detector.
You can prospect as little or as much as you like.
Now that we have located the claim, you never have to declare to the BLM any gold or gems you find.
When we located the claim on one weekend, we gathered in and around the river, approx. 1/4 of an ounce of gold, being worth about $300. As the BLM does not specify the amount of gold to be found to locate a claim other than gold needs to be discovered, we use this amount for a 40 acre claim as a projection of good gold potential. Someone with more time may find more. Gold prices are over $1200/ounce. Though we could never guarantee what you will find, we did locate this claim in an historically rich area for gold prospecting.

You are allowed to post No Trespassing for Prospecting signs around the claim.

40 acres: = 1,742,499 sq.ft., 1320 x 1320 ft.

Trinity County has much to offer in outdoor recreation. It doesn't matter if your preference is on land or on water there is plenty of outdoor adventure here and waiting for you.
If you prefer land then the Trinity Alps Wilderness has more than enough to satisfy hikers, campers, bird watchers, nature and other outdoor land recreational enthusiasts. Miles of trails into the mountains provide memorable hiking and horseback riding, while abundant camping facilities provide a place to pitch camp for family outdoor fun.
If you prefer water, then there are the beautiful Trinity, Lewiston, and Ruth lakes, and the Trinity river and many streams provide all the water adventure that you can handle. White water rafting, boating, water sports, and trophy fishing all await you here!

In the early 1850s, miners from around the world came to Weaverville after the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma and the subsequent influx of people into northern California. Perason B. Reading mined the Trinity River near Douglas City at what is now called Reading Bar. News of Reading’s success drew miners to remote diggings.
In 1850, Sacramento newspapers publicized the gold diggings and more miners rushed into the area.
Trinity County is in California Gold Region 6. This region has a number of National Forests where prospecting, mining and panning is done.
_______________________________

This claim has good legal paved road access, on a good County road, with flatter areas for camping, and gold discovered in surface prospecting. Shiell Gulch Campground is also nearby.

A transfer of ownership is a sale of legal, exclusive ownership of a mining claim site. To be a legally recorded claim, gold had to be found on the claim, which was completed by me, as I am the original claim locator.
_____________________________

Your ownership is legally conveyed via a Quit Claim deed, and legally recorded with the BLM and Trinity County. A Quit Claim deed is the required legal document per the BLM. Each year, on or before September 1st, you need to file a form with the Bureau of Land Management, along with $310. By doing this, you keep the claim forever. You will need to have 2 names on your deed. You must be a current US citizen with a US address to own a mining claim in the US. I have paid the $310 fee for this year, not due again until September 1, 2018.

_________________________

Hayfork Creek running 2000 feet through the claim is a unique advantage for gold prospecting.
Gold always occurs in gravels in the metallic state and when so found has various physical characteristics. Gold is dense and heavy, it has a characteristic metallic color, and it is soft and easily malleable (it is easily formed by hammering). These are the characteristics used by prospectors to identify gold in the field.
Placer gold occurs on the claim as small grains derived from gossan formed by weathering, and oxidation of the gold, copper and iron rich veins. Gold also occurs as grains flakes and small nuggets derived from the erosion of mineralized fault zones on, and upstream from the claim.

COMMENTS FROM SATISFIED CLAIM BUYERS:

"We purchased a 40 acre claim in California from Mr. Leu. Our claim is everything he told us it would be: Beautiful area, great for family camping outings, and, we have found gold while panning in the creek on our claim. We could not be happier with our purchase!"

"Living in Colorado, the purchase of our mining claim from you has been great for family fun and recreation. We have camped overnight a number of times, and panned for gold in the creek. We were even able to find gold flakes on several of our attempts. Thank you so much!."

"We purchased 2 mining claims from Michael Leu over the last 2 years, one in California, and one In Colorado. We have been to our claims on several occasions, and we could not be happier! They are exactly as described, and our camping on our claims and prospecting in the creek on each claim is the highlight of our vacations. You can trust Mr. Leu. If you are looking for a great time in the awesome beauty of the west, buying a mining claim from Mr. Leu will be a blessing."

And just a note of encouragement for you if purchase:
My wife and I have located, prospected on, and sold mining claims in
California, Colorado, & Arizona, going on now for 8 years.
You can trust we will process your notarized deeds correctly and quickly.
In that mining claims are processed thru the Bureau of Land Management, a
Federal Govt. agency, not following thru per our legally signed contract, would be a federal crime. I certainly will do what I say, and would never put myself nor my wife
in any legal jeopardy.
Also, we have sold properties on 5 sites online for over 10 years:
Landsalelistings, Landwatch, LandandFarm, LandsofAmerica, and Landflip.
Our continued good status on these sites is due to our always following thru, as just one time we would not, we would not be allowed to sell on these sites ever again.
