Property Images Property location map and directions
This is a legally registered gold Mining Claim for sale.
Discounted price of $2500 for a one time full payment, no other fees or costs. A signed contract will precede payment.

Mining Claims as an investment: if you purchase a claim from us, at no charge, I would help you if ever decided to sell, in how to do that.

This is the area 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 West 1/2 of the California Gold #3, with a seasonal creek, and is in Placer County, California, in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains, and the Tahoe National Forest. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Sacramento. You own the mineral rights, not sharing with others, on the 40 acres, and use your 40 acres, recreationaly for camping: tent, camper, or RV, and prospecting: an awesome, beautiful area.

Paved Mosquito Ridge Road leads to the claim, one of the most beautiful drives in the US. Part of seasonal Peavine Creek is located on the claim.

With an approved BLM Plan of Operation, a building can 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.

On trips to the claim, I gathered in and around the creek, approx. 1/8 of an ounce of gold, being worth about $200. Someone with more time may find more. Gold prices are over $1300/ounce. Though we could never guarantee what you will find, we did locate this claim in an historically rich area for gold prospecting.
_______________________________
Tahoe National Forest has a history of having the most registered gold mining claims of any NF in the US, one reason being the large number of seasonal creeks. These creeks allow for the panning of a running creek from winter run off of snow from the mountains, and then for the time when dry, digging in the creek bed from gold deposited from the run offs. This is the advantage for prospectors for a seasonal creek.

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

The beautiful resort area of Lake Tahoe is just 45 miles east. Only 70 miles from Sacramento, near the quaint town of Foresthill.
From the spectacular views of the snow-capped Sierra Crystal Range to the adventurous trails of the American River Valley and the rich history of the California Gold Rush, the Foresthill Divide provides year-around recreational opportunities and a special way-of-life for the involved citizens of the community.
Placer County, California: Located on 1,400 square miles of the most beautiful and diverse geography in Northern California, Placer County stretches for a hundred miles from urban South Placer, through Western Placer, to the High Sierras of North Lake Tahoe and the Nevada state line.
Within its borders picturesque farm land and Gold-Rush era towns dot the oak-covered foothills. Craggy peaks, forests, tumbling rivers and clear alpine lakes create the natural beauty of the High Country.
Placer County is a continent within a county because of its diversity.
Outdoor enthusiasts thrill at the County’s abundance of year-round recreational activities, while others marvel at the array of galleries, theater, musical and festival events. Shoppers love the large selection of boutiques, specialty shops and farmers markets. Everyone enjoys the variety of restaurant choices from fine cuisine to family style dining, and the range of lodging and accommodations from the luxurious to quaint and romantic.

Each year, on or before September 1st, you need to file a form with the Bureau of Land Management, along with $310. There are no taxes on mining claims in Placer County. You will need to have 2 names on your deed. You must be a current US citizen to own a mining claim in the US.

_________________________

The high banking of the stream gulch on the claim is also 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.
