Property Images Property location map and directions
THIS CLAIM HAS BEEN SOLD.

This is a legally registered, 40 acre gold Mining Claim for sale, the Illinois River Gold #6,
with the Illinois River running thru the claim, and is east of the town of Rand.
This area is a ranching community, with working ranches, and has the look and the feel of the old West. Our claims here are 11 miles SE of the town of Rand.

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, $1000 down payment, then $500 per month for 5 months,
or $4000, paying $500 per month for 8 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.

The river on this claim runs thru a beautiful extended meadow, and the meadows in this area are unique to the Rocky Mountains.
2 nice cleared camping spots are on the claim.
River runs just off the road making for easy access.
There are some nice bends in the river making for excellent gold catching areas.

Besides gold, this area is also known for having precious and semi-precious gemstones, including the state named gemstone aquamarine, and gems such as turquoise, crystals, opals, topaz, amethyst, and smoky quartz.

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.

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 Colorado Gold Rush.

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.

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.

The Illinois River is a tributary of the further north Michigan River and before that the historically gold rich Platte River. The Michigan River and Platte River are all claimed up, and with gold always traveling downstream, the Illinois River has excellent gold panning potential, as we discovered in our own prospecting, and along with the beauty of the area, makes for an awesome area to camp and prospect.

Owning a mining claim is having access to a lifetime of great family fun and recreation, in a very beautiful, natural setting.
This county is known as the Moose Viewing Capital of Colorado, and we had a moose sighting while we were there.

This is a 40 acre unpatented, gold mining placer claim, the Illinois River Gold #6, with the beautiful Illinois River running thru the claim, in the Rocky Mountains, and the Routt National Forest. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Lakewood, CO and Jackson County. 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.
Great secluded valley, with flatter claim areas for camping. Easy walk to the Illinois River, not too far from the Rocky Mountain National Park, and less than an hour from the Wyoming border.

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.

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.

When we located the claim on 2 weekends, we gathered in and around the river, 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.
Gold in just this past year has gone up over $100 per ounce.
When you find your first 3 1/2 ounces, you will have paid for your claim.

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.

Camp on your claim or nearby national forest campgrounds.
A claim owner does not need permission nor a permit to camp and prospect.
You can prospect as little or as much as you like.
Now that we have located the claims, you never have to declare to the BLM any gold or gems you find.

Welcome to North Park - Jackson County, Colorado!
Raw, remote, tucked deep in Colorado’s rugged Rockies, the high valley of North Park and its County of Jackson literally scream frontier and a past fast-held in present days. Holding true to rough and rugged times when native hunters, trappers, prospectors, and early ranchers survived off its lands and forged its history, North Park is the real West, where travelers can embrace “what once was”, while happily escaping “what now is”.
With over a million acres covering more than 1600 square miles; 65% public land; lakes, rivers and reservoirs that attract and support unique and abundant wildlife; and access to five of Colorado’s most rugged and pristine wilderness areas – North Park lies at the center of a minimally used and amazingly untapped recreation universe.
Light on links to the world-wide web, with mall shopping, bright lights and traffic jams at least 65 paved-miles away, it is removed from “civilization”, but easily accessed by civilized folk in search of solitude. Raw, Rough, Real – make your getaway to North Park this year. Unplug to plug in – disconnect from your life and reconnect with your soul.
As heavy mist rises from the lush, valley floor of Colorado’s North Park, a flaming Western sun gently layers the “360” horizon with pinks, reds, purples, and shimmering golds. As a large bull moose appears, disappears, and reappears along one of many river paths, a playful otter splashes ducks intent on finding breakfast in a nearby beaver pond.
And, as passing moments become priceless memories, the raw nature of North Park and Jackson County awakens the frontiersman in us all and leaves us wanting more.
North Park is truly a land of wonders, where your mind can rest, while your spirit soars.
______________________________

Each year, on or before September 1st, you need to file a form with the Bureau of Land Management, along with $330. By doing this, you keep the claim forever.

_________________________

The river on 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.

COMMENTS FROM SATISFIED CLAIM BUYERS:

"We visited and panned on our claim creek in Colorado this past June and had a wonderful time. We’re very pleased with the location and the claim itself."

"We have been to our mining claim in California that we purchased from you last year. The area is stunningly beautiful, and we couldn't be happier with our purchase."

"Living in Arizona, the mining claim we purchased from you has added greatly to our family outings. We are finding gold in the wash on our claim most every visit.
Thank you so much!"

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, LandsofAmerica, and LandandFarm.
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.
