The coordinates are 38.630722, -120.496150.The gold deposits of Grizzly Flat were discovered not long after James Marshall found the gold that started the California Gold Rush about 30 miles away. Rich placers in the area's streams and rivers and lode gold deposits were uncovered and mines such as the Mt. Pleasant and Hazel Creek mines yielded millions and became well known throughout the state. One man sluicing in 1857 took out over four pounds of gold.The Steely Fork of the Cosumnes River was bears the name of one of the most prominent of the Gold Rush era miners in the district who developed several quartz mines. There are numerous rich gold deposits along the river's length from both ancient channels and gold-quartz veins. There are two books written about Grizzly Flat that I know about which chronicle its history during and after the Gold Rush. It is full of fascinating mining and logging history.I have prospecting all over California and this is one of the prettiest claims I have been to. It has good access, camping onsite, and is nicely secluded. I have a couple claims a bit downriver from this one so some of the pictures may be of them as well. This is a great chance for a deal on a rare claim that your family can enjoy forever if you decide to.The claim is ideal for a small scale mining operation such as sluicing, using a rockerbox, highbanking, or panning. There are enough gravel bars, bedrock, and bench deposits to keep any miner working for generations.Once the auction ends payment will be due within 72 hours. I am experienced in mining claim transfers and will transfer title to the buyer by recording a Quitclaim Deed with the BLM and the county. I will pay all recording fees.Feel free to contact me with any questions.State/Province:California, Seller State of Residence:California, City:Grizzly Flat, Acreage:20.0, Featured Refinements:Mining Claim
