Property Images Property location map and directions
THIS CLAIM HAS BEEN SOLD!

This is a legally registered, 20 acre gold Mining Claim for sale.
Total price of $2000 for a one time full payment.
A signed contract will precede payment.

There are no more areas on this creek to locate a claim, as ours are the last.
Another prospector on this creek showed us his weekend vial of gold, 1 ounce = more than $1200.
The Golden State is still riddled with gold and only 10% of California's gold has been found.
Year round access as winter snow seldom stays on the ground for long in this area.

Direct road access to the creek, and another secluded road along the creek for more easy access.

In the 1850's, miners from around the world came to Weaverville, known as "the golden land," where fortunes could be discovered in the area's creeks. Follow in the footsteps of those first pioneers, in searching for your own "golden land" on your mining claim on Rush Creek.

Camp on your claim, or just up the road is also secluded, not often used, Rush Creek campground. The campground stretches along Rush Creek among Douglas fir, oak and maple. The sound of Rush Creek can be heard throughout the campground. Most campsites are well separated providing good privacy. Fishing is good for brook trout. The campground road and spurs are unpaved. All campsites have fire rings and picnic tables. Some campsites have a Klamath Oven. 10 Sites, Trailers up to 20', no water, vault toilets.

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 20 acre unpatented, gold mining placer claim, the West 1/2 of the Rush Creek Gold #4, with part of Rush Creek running through the claim, 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 20 acres, and use your 20 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.

When we located the claim on one weekend, we gathered in and around the creek, approx. 1/8 of an ounce of gold on the 20 acres, being worth about $150. 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 20 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.

20 acres = 660 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 road access, on a county paved road Rush Creek Road, with areas for camping, and gold discovered in surface prospecting. There is a flatter area to turn your car or RV into for camping off of the road.
_______________________________

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 $155. By doing this, you keep the claim forever. One or more 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 $155 fee for this year, not due again until Sept. 1, 2018.
____________________________
An unpatented mining claim is a specific parcel of federal land, valuable for a specific mineral deposit or deposits. It is a parcel for which an individual has asserted a legal right of possession and the right to develop and extract a discovered, valuable, mineral deposit.

_________________________

Part of Rush Creek running thru the claim is a unique advantage for gold prospecting. It is a tributary of the gold rich Trinity River.
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 visited and panned on our claim creek in Colorado this past June and had a wonderful time. We’re very pleased with the location and the claim itself."

"We have been to our mining claim in California that we purchased from you last year. The area is stunningly beautiful, and we couldn't be happier with our purchase."

"Living in Arizona, the mining claim we purchased from you has added greatly to our family outings. We are finding gold in the wash on our claim most every visit.
Thank you so much!"

And just a note of encouragement for you if you 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 3 sites online for over 10 years:
Landsalelistings, Landwatch, and LandandFarm, and now also on LandFlip and LandsofAmerica.
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.
_____________________________
