Eagle County, Vail, Colorado, United States
Property Images Property location map and directions
This is a legally registered, 40 acre gold and gem Mining Claim for sale, the Resolution Creek #9,
with Resolution Creek running thru the whole claim for over 1320 feet.
The creek flows thru an extended brush meadow, and there is a 2nd creek on the claim to multiply your prospecting potential.
There is an open camping spot on the claim.
Our claim here is 24 miles south of the town of Vail, in Eagle County, Colorado.
10 miles south of the quaint mountain town of Red Cliff.

Unique location at the base of Resolution Mountain where snow melt brings down minerals to the creek each Spring.
It is also great sign here that the federal govt. has withdrawn nearby areas for minerals and our claims here are located in this mineral rich area.
Located in the Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area allowing for winter access for snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing.

National Forests remained open at all times during the virus with a televised invitation by the Director for families to visit them as safe places for family recreation, making our mining claims some of the safest places for your family to enjoy and get away from all the nonsense.
Rockhounding In Colorado
Starting with the rich gold and silver deposits which were the starting point of so many Colorado towns, the Centennial State. With over 770 types of minerals to be found, it’s second only to California in the number of different gems and minerals statewide. 
Colorado is also host to a dizzying array of rocks and minerals. Some of the more high profile include dinosaur fossils, petrified wood, amazonite, flourite, and even aquamarine.
Colorado can certainly be considered a rockhound and gem hunter’s dream. The vast mountains of national forests gives one a newfound sense of exploration and discovery

Running along the road, the creek is quite easy to access.
Located at the base of Resolution Mountain, annual winter snow runoff brings down gold and gems into Resolution Creek.
Beautifully forested area of pines and aspens.
The bends in the creeks make for excellent gold catching areas.
Known as a great snowmobiling area. See Trail Map with the pictures.

And see end of the listing a number of area info links to get a good feel for this area.

Eagle County has a rich history associated with all that makes the West the West. Native American culture, mining, agriculture, ranching and recreation all have played important roles in the county’s past.        
In 1865 the immortal Lincoln sent a special message to the miners of the West. He said: "Tell the miners for me, I shall promote their interests to the best of my ability, because their prosperity is the prosperity of the nation, and we shall prove in a very few years that we are indeed the treasury of the world.”  How substantially this prophecy has been fulfilled is demonstrated in the ever increasing output in gold, silver and other metals in the great West, of which Colorado is the greatest state.  
Eagle county has done her share to swell the annual mineral production of the state since 1879, and it may be said the growth of the county was based on the mining industry.

To purchase our claim, the process would be, I would need your name(s) and mailing 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 $1750 first month, and $1750 2nd month,
or $3500, paying $1500 first month, $1000 2nd month, and $1000 3rd month.
A $99 deed processing fee is paid with final payment.

Owner financing, No credit check. No interest charged.
No down payment
You can use the claim as yours while making monthly payments.
Ownership transfer after final monthly payment.
A signed contract will precede payment.

Besides gold, this area is also known for having precious and semi-precious gemstones, including the state named gemstone aquamarine, and gems such as fluorite, 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 71 and my wife 68, 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.

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.

Gold and gems discovered in our own prospecting along with the beauty of the area, makes for awesome camping and prospecting.
There are no more areas on Resolution Creek to locate a claim.

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 Resolution Creek #9, with the beautiful Resolution Creek running all the way thru the claim, in the Rocky Mountains, and the White River National Forest.
The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Lakewood, CO and Eagle 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.

For the possibility of constructing any building you for 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.” This approval is quite difficult to receive as most cannot live there full time with their only job being prospecting.
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.

On our visits to the claim, we gathered in and around the creek, approx. 1/8 of an ounce of gold, being worth about $220. 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 $1700/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 the past 3 years has gone up over $400 per ounce.

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.

40 acres = parcel size of 1320 ft. x 1320 ft.

Eagle County, named for the Eagle River that runs thru the town of Eagle, is rich with trails, byways, protected forests and wilderness areas. Much of Eagle County is comprised of the White River National Forest. The Bureau of Land Management oversees much of the remainder of the land.
When visiting Eagle County, it’s easy to get caught up in the resort mindset However, if you want a change of scenery, find that small town, Americana setting in Eagle County’s small towns. The welcoming, down to earth vibe seems more like something from a storybook than a travel brochure, and the things to do in Eagle County embrace this.
People go out for walks about town and greet passersby. If you take a break between your day’s activities, do as the locals do and hang out in a coffee shop. Like most of Eagle County, outdoor activities reign supreme year round.
During the summer, things to do often include hiking, golfing, fishing and visiting parks. Spice things up a bit with a hot air balloon trip or paleontological project at a fossil dig site. When winter sets in, trade your hiking boots for skis. If you’d rather skate, then head to a town park that the town floods every winter to create a picture perfect ice skating rink.
For indoor Eagle County things to do, try touring a brewery, winery or distillery, practice your craft at a local art studio or round up your crew for a night of bowling.

Eagle County has the feeling of the Old West and is away from all the crowds, noise, and traffic jams of large cities.

This claim in this wonderful area has direct legal road access on a good Forest Service Road, with an area for camping, and gold and gems discovered in surface prospecting.
_______________________________

Our claims here are located in the White River National Forest,

_____________________________

Your ownership is legally conveyed via a Quit Claim deed, and legally recorded with the BLM and Eagle 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 $330. By doing this, you keep the claim forever.

The creek 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:

"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."

We live in Ohio. Our connection to Colorado is our daughter lives in Denver, though she is not involved with our claims. We visited her in September, then went to prospect and locate mining claims, as we have been doing for a number of years. 

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, for 30 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 25 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.
