This is a 20 acre placer mining claim for sale exclusively through Montana Gold And Silver Mines. The claim is located just outside of Gold Creek, 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. Pikes Peak Creek runs from Pikes Peak down through a narrow valley of glacial till containing gold. During surveying gold was easily found in the creek bed by panning and from the benches. The claim boasts excellent access but receives few visitors. 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 1320 feet on this claim and about 3 feet to about 6 feet wide. There is good year round water in the creek. 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 1900. 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 lies in the glacial till there is plenty to mine on the 20 acre claim. There is direct road access to this claim and plenty of room for staging, parking and other operations. History of the Mines The VALLEY GOLD #4 Mine is located in the north east quarter of section 10, south of the town of Gold Creek. VALLEY GOLD #4 claim is about 5800 feet in altitude. Prior to the advent of dredge operations in 1934, nearly half of the gold recovered in the district came from the Pikes Peak placers. Gold was found in small particles with some nuggets up to $10 in value. The gold assayed at $17.75 an ounce at a time when pure gold ran $21.67. Part of the pay streak was mined by drifting, but this area was covered by waste rock from mines higher on the hill. Below Treadwater Bar, a 3,000 foot segment of recovered pay streak was worked by a dragline shovel and a dry-land washer (Pardee 1951).

Over 600 feet of creek bed to mine and 20 acres of gold bearing material The Pioneer Mining District was the site of the first gold discovery in Montana. By 1870, it was estimated that $20,000,000 in placer gold had been taken from the gulches >The placer gold occurs in recent stream gravels and also in bench gravels. The deposits have been mined by sluicing, hydraulicking, and dredging. Gold recovered from the district, from 1904 to 1951, the operations in the district worked 4,625,700 cubic yards of gravel to recover 65,000 ounces of gold and 7,442 ounces of silver.

The stream was the scene of the first discovery of gold in Montana. While the quality of the strike was soon overshadowed by the Bannack strike, it was the Gold Creek mines that first drew prospectors to the region and directly led to the discovery on Grasshopper Creek. Because of its unique position in history, the events leading to the discovery are of more than passing interest. On May 8 1862, Granville Stuart set up the first effective sluices in Montana. When he found gold, the news was not lost on the prospectors passing through the area. A party of prospectors arrived on May 14 and found diggings that paid 20 cents per pan. On May 20 another party arrived and prospected along a branch of Gold Creek which they named Pikes Peak Creek. On June 1, yet another group of prospectors arrived on the scene and found gravel that paid about $10 to the man by working the stream with sluices (Pardee 1951). Miners on the way to diggings such as Stuart's often stopped and panned the streams along the way. In such a manner John White came upon the fabulous placers of Grasshopper Creek. When word of the rich strike arrived at Gold Fork, the miners left for more promising operations. By August 1862, only four months after the first sluices were in place, the Gold Creek placers were nearly abandoned; only two men remained to work the gravel. There followed a dizzying number of fabulously rich strikes at Alder Gulch, Last Chance Gulch, Confederate Gulch and many others. Gold Creek became a backwater and the town of American Fork was abandoned There was little activity on Gold Creek until 1866, when the Pioneer mining district was organized. The placers of Pioneer Creek and its tributaries, French and Squaw gulches, soon overshadowed the initial placers on Gold Creek. The Pioneer district never rivaled the other major strikes of Montana, but just the same the district flourished all through the 1870s. New placer deposits were discovered and developed. It has been estimated that over a million dollars of gold dust (at $20.67 per ounce) was removed from the Pioneer Bar in the late 1870s and early 1880s (Pardee 1951; Wolle 1963). Production figures for the creeks of the district have generally been combined reports, so a fair and accurate estimate of the production of each creek cannot be made. The total production of the placer mines in the district, up to 1949, was estimated to be $28,526,000. An estimate of about $7,000,000 seems to be fair and conservative for the total production of placer gold from the Pioneer district from 1860-1945. Gold Creek and Pikes Peak Creek flow into an area of complexly folded and faulted Mesozoic and Paleozoic sediments which have been intruded by an elongated batholith of quartz monzonite. The lode deposits occur in veins and replacement deposits in highly altered granite or quartz monzonite. None of the lode deposits have been particularly important as points of production, but erosion of these gold-bearing deposits have resulted in extensive placer deposits in... Pikes Peak Creek. The placer gold occurs in recent stream gravels and also in bench gravels. The deposits have been mined by sluicing, hydraulicking, and dredging (Sahinen 1935).

They can be bought, sold or used as collateral, just like any other piece of real estate.
