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.

Another prospector in this same area noted his gold panning success on another part of a creek:
"We found flakey gold in our sampling and that is highly favorable and somewhat rare in Colorado."

This claim is less than an hour from where the TV show Gold Rush is filmed on location at the Todd Hoffman mining claim near Fairplay. Link to that show below:

This claim has 2 creeks running thru it for double the potential for finding gold:
Michigan Creek and Johnson Creek.
There also is a trail along the creek for easier prospecting.
This claim lies within Colorado’s historically rich, mineral belt.

The largest nugget unearthed from this area and possibly all of Colorado, was discovered just north of our claim. It weighs an exceptional 9.3 pounds and is referred to as “Tom’s Baby”. This Nugget is the centerpiece of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science Mineral Collection, and can still be viewed and enjoyed today at the museum.

Camp on your claim, or the nearby secluded campground, Michigan Creek Campground, which has restrooms, picnic tables, and fire pits, though no running water, and is right along Michigan Creek. Camp to the sounds of rushing creek water and catch your dinner, as Michigan Creek is known for its trout fishing.

The discovery of gold in 1859 brought thousands of prospectors to this exact area.
A new mining camp called “Fair Play” was established. Be a part of your own gold prospecting journey in having your own mining claim as those who came before you.
It is a little known fact that Park County contains the highest gold and silver mines in North America. It also contains some of the highest historic ranches and a wealth of historic railroad sites. Some working ranches in the region provide accommodations and access to private fishing. Visitors who take advantage of Park County’s attractions do so in a beautiful mountain area that has remained relatively unchanged for more than 100 years.

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.
Owning a mining claim is having access to a lifetime of great family fun and recreation, in a very beautiful, natural setting.
This is also an area where you can explore and prospect for gems off the creek on your claim.

This is an historical area for gold prospecting on Michigan and Johnson Creeks.
I know of no more accessible places in this area to locate a claim.

This is a 40 acre unpatented, gold mining placer claim, the Michigan Creek Gold #1, with 2 creeks running thru the claim (Michigan Creek and Johnson Creek), and is in Park County, Colorado, in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, and the Pike National Forest. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Lakewood, CO. You own the mineral rights, not sharing with others, on the 40 acres, and use your 40 acres recreationally for camping and prospecting in an awesome, beautiful area.

Road access all the way to the claim.

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.

Over a weekend, I gathered in and around the creek, 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.

40 acres: = 1,742,400 sq.ft., 1320 x 1320 ft.

With 14,000-foot peaks, a rolling and colorful river valley, mining history, twisting and ancient bristlecone pine and abundant wildlife, Colorado's Park County is one of the state's most beautiful designated heritage areas and is home to the towns of FairPlay, Alma, and Jefferson.

One of the favorite Centennial State drives sweeps drivers from atop Kenosha Pass and swoops them down into the South Park valley, where they find a delightful contrast of green ranchland, oxbowed creeks and soaring, snowcapped mountain summits.

The term South Park was first used in the 1840s by hunters and trappers who traversed the Rocky Mountains. Ten years later, word spread across America of three successful gold strikes in Colorado (Check out Colorado Ghost Towns for other Gold Rush-era relics). Fortune seekers flocked to the area and gold camps sprang up overnight. From 1860-1863, Park County boasted $1.5 million in gold extraction. By the 1880s the area was known for its mineral springs, hunting, fishing and wildflower meadows.

Perched high in the Rockies, Park County is a microcosm of Western and natural history. Averaging 9,000 feet in elevation, this compelling region is home to the nation's highest town, ranches, gold mines, mountain passes, and Ute encampments.

_______________________________
This claim has legal road access, on a National Forestry road, with areas for camping, and gold discovered in surface prospecting.
_______________________________

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 Park County. A Quit Claim deed is the required legal document per the BLM.

You must be a current US citizen with a US address to own a mining claim in the US.
I have paid the fee for this year, not due again until September 1, 2018..

_________________________

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:

"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 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!"

"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 over 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.
