THIS CLAIM HAS BEEN SOLD.

This is a legally registered, 40 acre gold Mining Claim for sale, the Pierce Creek Gold #1, in Plumas County 23 miles south of the town of Susanville and 24 miles west of Janesville.

This claim has over 1320 feet of creek running thru the whole claim from north to south, and has some nice bends, acting as an excellent gold catching area.

A large, cleared camping spot is on the claim for any size vehicle.

See with the pictures gps corners map showing the creek thru the whole claim, and satellite view of the camping spots,

and satellite view showing at the base of gold rich Diamond Mountain.

Our claims are at the base of Diamond Mountain which has a long history of good gold production from winter snow thaw causing gold to flow down from the mountain into Pierce Creek.

There are a number of other claims in this area being worked by families for years, being another good sign for the gold potential on our claims.

Year round, outdoor enthusiasts are attracted to this area's many streams and lakes, beautiful deep canyons, rich mountain valleys, meadows and lofty peaks.

Our claims here are for those who like a more secluded area, where you feel you are away from it all, where within an hour you can be to Susanville that has a casino and resort hotel.

Located in a beautiful mixed conifer forest, including Douglas-fir, Cedar, and Ponderosa Pines.

The nearest town is Janesville. This small town community consists of an elementary school, a park, four churches, two gas stations, a pizza parlor, a coffee shop, a veterinary hospital, a hardware store, a post office, and a few other businesses.

We feel we are selling more than the gold and minerals on beautiful land.

You would be acquiring an experience that will give you a good feel for what the old time prospectors must have felt during the days of the original California Gold Rush.

The Plumas County Tax Collector has a value on this claim of $4446.

To purchase our claim, the process would be, I would need your name(s) and address where I would scan and email you a signed contract, and which payment option you choose:

Total price of $3500, that can be paid in one full payment where your ownership is then transferred after receiving payment,

or $3500 paying $500 per month for 7 months,

or $4200, paying $350 per month for 12 months.

Owner financing, No credit check. No interest charged.

You can use the claim as yours while making monthly payments.

Ownership transfer after final monthly payment.

A signed contract will precede payment.

I am a retired teacher, and got into prospecting as a hobby with my family.

I am 69 and my wife 66, 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.

Camp on your claim with tent or RV, and a claim owner does not need permission nor a permit to camp and prospect. Wheeler Sheep Campground is also nearby that has water and 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 40 acre unpatented, gold mining placer claim, the Pierce Creek Gold #1, with the beautiful Pierce 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 40 acres, and use your 40 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.

On trips to the claim, we gathered in and around the creek, approx. 1/4 of an ounce of gold on the claim, 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.

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.

Two principal approaches to the claims are, for the west end, via the Gold Run Road (County Rd. 204) from Susanville or, for the east end, from Highway 395 via the Janesville Grade (Country Rd. 208). Both roads connect with Forest Road 28N02 which is the claim road, which traverses the south (Plumas) slopes of the mountain. Two miles west of Thompson Peak, Forest Road 29N43 forks north from Road 28N02 and provides access to the north (Lassen) slopes of the mountain; the road then drops through timberlands north of the crest to join the Gold Run Road.

The claim location monument has a 4 foot wooden post with an attached copy of the Location Notice, as required by the State of California.

_________________________

Pierce Creek running through the claim is a unique advantage for gold prospecting and prospectors always look for creek bends as on this claim for where the gold accumulates.

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 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.
