This is a 20 acre placer mining claim for sale exclusively through Montana Gold And Silver Mines. The claim is located just outside of Bannack, Montana and has been properly staked and marked. All Montana Gold And Silver Mines claims have been meticulously surveyed, mapped and researched. Field work is completed by our own experienced, well educated Mine Survey Team. Remote Montana gold mine, typical of pre 1900's operations. Hangman's Gulch runs into the middle of the ghost town of Bannack. During surveying gold was easily found in the top inches of the creek bed by panning. The claim boasts excellent access but receives very few visitors as evidenced by the grass overgrowing the road. The claim was originally surveyed by Montana Gold And Silver Mines and sampled for rich, free gold deposits in the gravels. The creek bed is estimated to be over 600 feet on this claim and about 2 feet to about 4 feet wide. There is seasonal water in the creek but when dry the gravels can be dry washed to recover the gold. There is likely to be some native silver and possibly some relics to be found on the claim but the primary commodity will be gold. Remnants and items seen in the area indicate there has been work done after 1941. It is estimated by the surveyors that the claim has been worked intermittently in the early 1900's. No effort to mine for many decades is evident and as the gold has washed down over the decades from the hills and gulches, it has replenished the gold found on this claim. There is direct BLM road access to this claim and plenty of room for staging, parking and other operations. History of the Mines The Hangman's Gold #5 Mine is located in the northeast quarter of section 31, 660 feet north of the Bannack State Park Boundary. It is the closest claim available to the Bannack State Park on Hangman's gulch. This claim borders my claim that I will be working next year. Hangman's Gold #5 claim is about 6000 feet in altitude. All the gulches that feed Hangman's gulch flow into this claim. Bannack is the site of the first major gold rush in the Montana Territory, the first successful dredging operation in the United States was in Bannack but the dredges did not run in this gulch so they didn't get all the gold here! Real close by the first lode mine was discovered and developed in the Montana territory and many other lode mines dot the landscape around the area. Above Hangman's gulch is the historic Road Agent's Rock where the outlaws would watch for miners transporting their gold for shipment. The road agents could then ride to intercept the miner's and rob them. It was thought the the Sheriff of Bannack and Virginia City, Henry Plummer was the leader of the gang of outlaws that operated in both the Bannack area and Virginia City area. The stolen gold has never been recovered and when Henry Plummer was arrested by the vigilantes he pleaded for his life and told them he could pay them his weight in gold. He said he could see where the gold was from the jail house window and that it would only take him about an hour to retrieve the gold. Hangman's gulch is the perfect location for Henry's hidden gold stash. Even if Henry Plummer's gold isn't in Hangman's gulch there is a rich gold deposit that is worth your efforts to mine and who knows, you could be the lucky one to find his hidden gold.

Over 600 feet of creek bed to mine and 20 acres of gold bearing material The Bannack Mining District was the site of the first important Montana gold discovery in Montana in 1862. At Bannack, the stream gravels and adjacent terrace gravels along Grasshopper Creek produced perhaps as much as 387,000 oz from 1862 to 1905 Not only were the placer bars easily worked and incredibly rich, they produced some of the purest gold found anywhere in the world. On the average, Bannack gold assayed at 990 fine (99% pure) and in a few cases it went as high as 999 fine - essentially a chemically pure state More than a ton of gold was taken from the Grasshopper diggings during the first season. Both the bench and creek bed hold gold and are well worth your efforts. There is plenty of gravel in the creek bed as well as the benches which are virgin ground. This Gold Nugget is NOT included with the claim. It is shown just to give an idea of the gold in the area.More InfoClaim RatingTotal Workings 600-700 feet of creek bed estimated.

More than a ton of gold was taken from the Grasshopper diggings during the first season. Not only were the placer bars easily worked and incredibly rich, they produced some of the purest gold found anywhere in the world. On the average, Bannack gold assayed at 990 fine (99% pure) and in a few cases it went as high as 999 fine - essentially a chemically pure state (Cushman 1973).By the summer of 1863 the camp had a population of from 3000 to 5000 miners, merchants, gamblers, saloon keepers, prostitutes and outlaws. When the Territory of Montana was established on May 26, 1864, Bannack became the first territorial capital [in 1869 it became the first county seat of Beaverhead County]. During most of 1863, however, there was little in the way of government authority or law enforcement. The sheriff was the notorious Henry Plummer who used his office to cover his leadership of an outlaw gang that systematically robbed and murdered miners and travelers for their gold. His career as an outlaw was cut short by vigilantes on Sunday morning, January 10, 1864, when he was hung from the same gallows he had ordered built to hang a horse thief. Soon after, the remainder of the gang met a similar fate or else were banished and at least a semblance of law and order settled on Bannack (Wolle 1963; Cushman 1973).By this point Bannack was already starting to decline. New strikes at Alder Gulch in 1863 and Last Chance Gulch in 1864 drained off a large part of Bannack's population. Miners were having problems getting enough water to work the placer deposits -- it has been estimated that by this point only about seven percent of the area's gold had been taken (Cushman 1973). Bannack's period as a territorial capital was also brief. By the time the first legislature convened in December of 1864, the population center had shifted to the Alder Gulch area and the lawmakers voted to move the capital to Virginia City. However, Bannack continued to produce gold through a variety of mining technologies.The historic Bannack mining district is, like many mining districts which were developed for placer operations, rather poorly defined in the historic literature. The first mining in the Bannack area focused on the rich placer deposits along the banks of Grasshopper Creek. Lyden (1948) shows the Bannack mining district as a narrow strip running along Grasshopper Creek from Bannack to a point about two or three miles from the confluence with the Beaverhead River. This placer mining district extended roughly a quarter of a mile on each side of the creek and included both the stream bottom gravels and the gold-bearing terrace gravels lying about 100 feet above the present creek bed.It has been estimated that the Bannack mining district has produced approximately $12,000,000 in gold from 1862 until 1930 (with gold priced at $20.67 per ounce). The placer operations alone during the period from 1862 to 1876 produced an estimated $3,000,000 worth of extraordinarily pure gold (Shenon 1931; Sassman 1941).Production from 1860 - 19502,264,492cy mined.4,105,659g Au recovered.27,589g Ag Recovered.MAPS Sales Information Montana Gold And Silver Mines GuaranteeThe most important part of your mining claim is the actual mining claim documentation and location.

FAQ Mining claims are a tangible asset and show your rights to all interests in minerals in the claim boundary. They can be bought, sold or used as collateral, just like any other piece of real estate. A mining claim can be sold, traded, leased, gifted, willed, used as collateral or transferred in part or in its entirety just like any other real property using a quitclaim deed which is a recordable conveyance. This auction is for 100% - all interest in this 20 acre placer mining claim. This claim covers the entire site, 1,320 ft. by 660 ft., and includes full rights to all minerals and gems you may find on the property. The winner of this auction will receive a notarized quitclaim deed to the full claim and all associated documentation showing full ownership of the claim. Maintenance on all BLM mining claims is $155.00, per 20 acre parcel, annually. This must be paid on or before September 1st, every year unless you do more than $100 per year in improvements to the property, in which case you can file for and receive a waiver of the maintenance fee. NOTE: If you own fewer than 10 claims nationwide, and you perform at least $100 in assessment work in the year, you can plan on paying just $15 per year for your maintenance fee instead of $155.

However, you need to check with the BLM Field Office or the local District Ranger for areas open to camping. Under Federal law in order to occupy the public lands under the 1872 mining laws amended, for more than 14 calendar days in any 90 day period, a claimant must be involved in certain activities that (a) are reasonably incident; (b) constitute substantially regular work; (c) are reasonably calculated to lead to the extraction and beneficiation of minerals; (d) involve observable on-the-ground activity that can be verified; and (e) use appropriate equipment that is presently operable, subject to the need for reasonable assembly, maintenance, repair or fabrication of replacement parts.
