Eureka Mining Inc, is very excited to offer our customers the Congress Canyon Placer #2, 20 acre placer claim in Historic Unionville, Pershing County, NV. If you've never had the chance to visit Unionville your missing out on the splendor and beauty of this Historic Canyon. This little desert oasis is riddled with neat old mining cabins, barns, sheds, etc as well as a couple high end newer homes too. The Dixie Ranch runs up the canyon taking in much of Buena Vista Creek and the meadows as seen in our photos. A very unique spread to say the least. The only operational business in Unionville is the Old Pioneer bed and breakfast having a few customers in the summer months. Near the top of the canyon rests the rich placer gravels of Congress Canyon and the year round stream flowing through it. It was written that the early miners were taking around 3/4 of an ounce of placer gold per day by hand methods during the great depression from Buena Vista Creek and Congress Canyon. The placers no doubt were derived millions of years ago by erosion of the rich hard rock deposits in the area and mountain uplifting. The gold found in this canyon is coarse and crystalline making beautiful specimens for jewelry and so on. The access road leading to the claim is suitable for 2 wheel drives, travel trailers and RV's and there is a wonderful scenic camp area along the creek. As you travel up the canyon on the huge 1320 feet of claimed area upstream you will notice old cables, lode digs, tailings, quartz everywhere, etc. You will also see several high bench terraces and small gravel bars running up the canyon. Near the top of the canyon above the claim is the old Congress Mine hard rock mine and many workings that are a must see. Nearby amenities are located just 18 miles north in Mill City where you can find awesome food and supplies at the Star Point Trading Post and the TA truck stop which has a small casino/bar, taco bell, laundromat, showers, mechanic shop and much more. Remember dredging and high banking are legal in NV as well as BLM exploration permits in 30 days allowing for full occupancy on your claim and the use of heavy equipment. This claim is the real deal for either a larger operation or just recreational mining, plenty of water, plenty of gold and plenty of fun. Good Luck! The claim is located in mining friendly Pershing County, NV Feel free to check out the claim and sample as needed.

Stunning Scenary Heading To The Claim Historic Unionville Buena Vista School Built 1871 Indians brought ore to Virginia City from Buena Vista Canyon in early 1861, and by May the Buena Vista District was organized. A camp known as Dixie was established by Confederate miners in the upper part of the canyon, but as more miners from the North moved in, the camp was renamed Unionville following a local political fight. In November it became the county seat of newly created Humboldt County. Unionville continued to prosper and by mid-1863 boasted a population of nearly 1000, ten stores, nine saloons, six hotels, four livery stables, and numerous other businesses constructed of lumber and adobe. A newspaper, the Humboldt Register, began publication in May. In 1864, Unionville reached its peak before dipping into a decline, which lasted until 1868 when work picked up at the Arizona mine. By the early 1870s there were three ten-stamp mills treating low grade ore. A $30,000 fire in August 1872 contributed to Unionville's now-continued decline and in 1873 the county seat was lost to Winnemucca. In 1880 the Arizona mine closed, and by then Unionville was left with only 200 residents. Production until then amounted to $2.7 million, and no significant work has occured since. Irrigation brought small farms and orchards to Buena Vista Canyon in the 20th Century, which remain today amidst ruins of Unionville's past. Tucked away within its picturesque canyon, about 20 people still call Unionville home, and a quaint bed and breakfast is open for visitors.
