I am a retired teacher, and got into prospecting as a hobby with my family.
I am 68 and my wife 65, and we have gained the experience to select the best areas to locate claims.

For the possibility of constructing any building you or others could live in, you need to file a Plan of Operation with the BLM for approval, showing you have developed a full-time operation performing diligent mining.
You do not need a plan, permission nor a permit to camp and prospect.
You do not need to be a full time prospector to file a Plan for a shed type structure.

A mining claim is an affordable way to enjoy the beauty of the land combined with the adventure of panning for gold.

If within one year you are not satisfied with your claim, you can trade for another comparable claim, just paying the BLM and County transfer fees which will be about $125.

Claim buyer will also receive a new, free, Gold Panning Kit:
One 14 inch Gold Trap pan; One 10.5 inch Gravity Trap pan, One combination sifter/classifier with 7/16 of an inch exit holes, One Gold Guzzler snuffer bottle, One Tweezers/ Magnifying Glass combo tool, One booklet titled "How to Find Gold", and Two plastic bottles.

Unique to our claim is a spring fed pond just down the road.
The water can be used for your prospecting.
There is also a flatter, cleared, camping area on the claim.

*Also, we located our claims here especially because there is a Gold Prospectors Association of America claim right near ours.
This Association locates claims around the western United States for its members,
and they only choose to locate claims where gold is present for their members to prospect, and our prospecting confirms the presence of gold.

The claim also has an extended wash thru it, being where the gold is, as well as the whole acreage to prospect off of the wash.
The wash on the claim is a great advantage for prospecting, especially when the summer rains run down the wash, then depositing gold flakes down from the mountains and rock formations.
Do a Google search for Gold Dust in Arizona's Washes.

Besides gold, this is also a great place to hunt for specimen rocks and other gemstones as agate and ruby red garnets are often found in this geological region.

Owning a mining claim is having access to a lifetime of great family fun and recreation, in a very beautiful, natural setting: Arizona, is a great, scenic state, where the spirit of the old west still lives on.
Mining Claims are also a great investment, as claims go up in value over time, just as land does.
if you purchase a claim from us, at no charge, I would help you if you ever decided to sell in the future.

This is a 40 acre unpatented, gold mining claim, the Superstition Canyon Gold #6 placer claims. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Phoenix. 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. In awesome Hewitt Canyon, with beautiful views of nearby mountain ranges and rock formations. Great combination of good access, wilderness beauty, and gold prospecting potential.

This historical area of the Superstition Mountains has the most desired claims and lives up to its reputation that is so widespread. The legend of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine centers around the Superstition Mountains. According to the legend, a German immigrant named Jacob Waltz discovered a mother lode of gold in the Superstition Wilderness and revealed its location on his deathbed in Phoenix in 1891 to Julia Thomas, a boarding-house owner who had taken care of him for many years.

Many since then, and even today, search for the Lost Dutchman Mine, including the TV series, Legends of the Superstition Mountains.
Do a Google search for Legend of the Superstition Mountains, History Channel

See the listing onsite pictures, showing one of the most beautiful areas in Arizona. This claim is surrounded by mountain views. Located in the Tonto National Forest and the Superstition Mountains, see area info links bottom of listing.
Location Monument, a 4 foot wood post with an attached copy of our Location Notice, as required by the Arizona BLM.

With an approved BLM Plan of Operation, a building can be built on the land: any building that benefits and improves the claim.
As stated by the BLM, this can be the "construction of a building, road, fence, or enclosure necessary for mining."
Current usage, is what the BLM calls, Casual Use: panning, shovel, rock hammer, metal detector, creek powered sluice box, where no permission nor permit is needed to camp and prospect.
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 you find.

On our trip to the claim, we found about 1/4 of an ounce of gold in and around the extended wash on the claim, value approx. $300. Those with more time to prospect may find more. Today's 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 in and around the claim.
A mining claim owner may limit or restrict public recreational use of/or public access across claims or portions of claims that are actively used for prospecting, mining, or processing operations where public recreational use of a claim would endanger or materially interfere with legitimate mining pursuits.

About an hour and 40 minutes from Phoenix, 66 miles to claim:
Highway 10 east, to 60 east, then left (north) on N Queen Valley Road, then a right (east) on East Hewitt Canyon Gold Road (Forest Road 357), then taking a left (north) on Hewitt Canyon Road (Forest Road 172), which is the claim road which forks to the right on Forest Road 172A to the claim and the pond, 10 miles north from beginning of Hewitt Canyon Road to the claims. We had a mid sized SUV and did not need 4 wheel drive, though the last few miles a higher clearance vehicle is recommended.
Then following GPS coordinates to the claim.
See claim GPS corner coordinates below.
The road is generally grated once a year.
For the last few miles, a higher clearance vehicle is recommended.
40 acres = 1320 ft. x 1320 ft. for each claim

This claim has direct, national forest road access, areas for camping, and gold discovered in surface prospecting.

A wash is on the claim, and acts as a catch basin for gold mineralized ground. The claim is in a very mineralized area, and is great for rock hounds, metal detecting, relic hunting, and dry-washing. Many historical gold rich producing mines are in this area, including the legend of the Lost Dutchman Mine.
Canyon mountain views and rolling terrain. Pinal County is a region of broad desert plains and canyon mountain ranges. It is one of the largest areas of historic gold mining discoveries. Great views of the surrounding mountains and rock formations.

Our claim is in the Tonto National Forest, which embraces almost 3 million acres of rugged and spectacularly beautiful country, ranging from Saguaro cactus-studded desert to pine-forested mountains beneath the Mogollon Rim. This variety in vegetation and range in altitude (from 1,300 to 7,900 feet) offers outstanding recreational opportunities throughout the year, whether its lake beaches or cool pine forest. Hikers, backpackers, wildlife observers and photographers will find many recreation opportunities here. Rugged topography and the area's Hewitt Canyon furnishes the solitude and secluded experience treasured by many wilderness visitors. The town of Queen Valley is a few miles south of the claims which has a store and gas station, and the larger Florence Junction is about 15 miles, off of route 60, just before the N. Queen Valley turnoff.

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 us, as we are the original claim locators.

Your ownership is legally conveyed via Quit Claim deed, and legally recorded with the BLM and Pinal 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. We will supply this form to you. Fee is paid, not due again until Sept. 1, 2019. Can also be paid online with the BLM.
There are no taxes on mining claims in Arizona.
You must be a current US citizen with a US address to own a mining claim in the US.
2 names are needed on your deed.

After proving the existence of valuable minerals on the land, the claim is legally recorded with the Bureau of Land Management, and Pinal county.

These are the characteristics used by prospectors to identify gold in the field.

COMMENTS FROM SATISFIED CLAIM BUYERS:

"We live in Arizona and purchased a mining claim from Mr. Leu.
The claim is everything as advertised. The Superstition Mountains make for awesome views. We have camped on our claim a number of times and have found gold in the wash on our claim. We are very happy with our purchase.

Living in another state, we were a little skeptical on buying a mining claim in Arizona. But our personal experience with Mr. Leu has been a family blessing.
Our camping and prospecting on our claim has brought our family closer together.
We were so pleased, we bought a claim in Colorado from Mr. Leu, and are looking to buy one also in California as we look to plan family vacations around our claims.

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 10 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 4 sites online for over 10 years:
Landsalelistings, Landwatch, LandandFarm, 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.
