No downpayment. No credit check.
You can use the claim as yours while making monthly payments.

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.

The US Government has kept 160 acres along Boulder Creek noted as a mineral withdrawal where no one can locate a claim nor prospect on that 160 acres. Though there is no sign of any government mining operation nor will there be, in that they would protect this acreage for those mineral deposits is a great sign for our claims here. Several other veteran prospectors have claims already established around this area, and now that we have located ours, there are no other areas to locate a claim that has a creek on it.
The government mineral withdrawal is also a way of protecting those 160 acres along Boulder Creek from any large, mining operation from coming in and disturbing the land to any large degree. The public is allowed on that 160 acres, but no prospecting can ever take place,
being our claims here have exclusive prospecting rights.

Camp on your claim with tent or RV, and a claim owner does not need permission nor a permit to camp and prospect.
Boulder Creek flows for 7.25 miles into Antelope Lake.
Great Boulder Creek Campground on Antelope Lake.

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 N 1/2 of Boulder Creek Gold #4, with the beautiful Boulder Creek running through the claim, and is in Plumas County, California, in the beautiful Diamond Mountain Range of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and the Plumas National Forest. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Sacramento and Plumas 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 can be built on the land: any building that benefits and improves the claim, though you cannot live on a mining 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.

Now that we have located the claim, you never have to declare to the BLM any gold or gems you find.
You can prospect as little or as much as you like.

When we located the claim on one weekend, we gathered in and around the creek, approx. 1/8 of an ounce of gold on each half of the claim, being worth about $150 for each half. 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 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.
20 acres = 871,200 sq. ft., 660 x 1320
40 acres = 1,742,400 sq.ft., 1320 x 1320 ft.

Plumas County is located in the NE corner of California, where the Sierra and the Cascade Mountains meet. Plumas County has more than 100 lakes and 1000 miles of rivers and creeks with over a million acres of national forest land.
Plumas County offers a high quality of life and the natural beauty of the land is why many choose this area for family fun and recreation.
The numerous lakes and mountain creeks create a playground for those who love the outdoors.
With the beauty of the surrounding mountain ranges, this area is a hiker’s dream.

This claim has good legal road access, on a good, dirt forest service road for any type of vehicle, with areas for camping, and gold discovered in surface prospecting. Boulder Creek runs thru the whole claim.

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 a Quit Claim deed, and legally recorded with the BLM and Plumas 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 simple form with the Bureau of Land Management, along with $155. By doing this, you keep the claim forever. 1 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 September 1, 2019.
Plumas County taxes = $40/year.
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.

Boulder Creek running 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.

"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 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.
