The adits can still be accessed with a little work, but open pit mining is actually a lot safer and much more cost effective than traditional hard rock mining. No collapses to worry about and you can move a lot more material in a lot less time and effort. Trying to get a plan approved and permitted for open pit mining on a new site is really tough these days. But since this one has already been opened and the top 4 feet of soil removed prior to us acquiring it, you don’t have to do anything but haul the ore out for processing as there is no responsibility for remediation of the area by the new registered owner. You do not need a plan or post a bond like you would if you wanted to start an operation of this size in a new area, and there’s enough material here to keep even a medium sized operation busy for many years to come! The clearly exposed and visible individual deposits on this claim range from narrow veins with small but enriched high grade ore shoots, to wide shear and breccia zones of medium grade material as you can see from the below pictures. The chief manganese minerals are the common oxides, usually occurring as a mixture of pyrolusite, psilomelane, wad, and manganite. The gangue is composed largely of calcite, quartz; and un-replaced fragments of wall rock. Buyer will receive the following with their completed transaction: - Quitclaim deed showing full ownership of the claim. This will be stamped, recorded and verified with the County and the BLM offices. - Welcome packet with all of the rules and regulations as they relate to the State and BLM where the claim is located. - Educational documents to annually renew your mining claim with the BLM. - A CD of all of the documented images of the claim including maps of the site. - Map of claim marked and GPS coordinates. - Multiple maps showing claim location and surrounding areas for access. As the largest company in the mining industry selling legitimate and valuable historic claims, you can rest easy that there is no fine print on any of our claim auctions telling you will have to deal with any games like being charged phony fees or having to pay inflated “processing” or “transfer” fees. The final auction price for this mine when the auction ends is ALL you will pay. Our in-house legal counsel will complete all of the paperwork and documentation for recording and transferring FULL ownership of this mine into your name if you win the auction, AND we will ship you everything in one to two business days of receipt of your payment in full (usually just one day!). So you can plan to visit (and start working) your claim the next day without the lengthy delay you will experience with other companies selling claims –and you will not have to pay any extra costs, fees or other poor excuses for extra profit that normally just go into a seller’s pocket. Come to Hike, Camp, Ride and Shoot - or come to pull some shiny rock$ out of the ground;-) ABOUT THE MINING DISTRICT HARQUAHALA MOUNTAINS - ELLSWORTH MINING DISTRICT, LA PAZ COUNTY District Overview The Harquahala Mountains are the highest mountain range in southwestern Arizona, United States and are located southwest of the towns of Aguila and Wenden. The name originated from a local Native American people "Aha qua hala", which meant "water there is high up". The range is oriented from northeast to southwest and is approximately 32 km long and 20 km at its widest point. At the northeast are two prominent peaks, Eagle Eye Peak and Eagle Eye Mountain. One has a natural opening or bridge through it appearing as an eye high up, and is the namesake for the peaks and Aguila (Spanish for eagle). The highest point, Harquahala Peak, rises to 1,732 meters. Socorro Peak (1,134 m) is at the southwest end of the range. The very windy summit can be reached via a rough, 4-wheel drive road. This high point was used by the U.S. Army in the 1880s as a heliograph station. Then in 1920 a Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory was constructed on this summit and operated for five years before being relocated to Table Mountain Observatory, near Wrightwood, California. Its purpose was to study variations in the solar output as a possible factor in climate prediction. History/Production The Harquahala Mining District was organized in the late 1880's. Workings include numerous large to small mines and prospects worked from shafts, tunnels, adits, and open cuts. Operations date back to before the 1880's and continued intermittently to recent times. Total estimated and recorded production of precious and base metals would be some 160,000 tons of ore containing about 130,582 oz. Au, 89,500 oz. Ag, 45 tons of Cu, 61 tons Pb and minor Zn. About 615 oz. of placer gold with some silver was produced, mostly prior to 1900. Some 1,100 short ton units of tungsten oxide has been reported shipped from the district as well as a few lots of sorted 20% manganese ore. For many years marble and quartzite, mainly for crushed stone, has been quarried. The titaniferous magnetite sand has not been exploited. Some gypsum was produced for agricultural use. Geology The geology of the Little Harquahala Mountains near the Bonanza-Golden Eagle Property consists of Lower Paleozoic quartzites, calcareous mudstone with interbedded shales, and thick-bedded to massive limestones to dolomites of the Cambrian Bolsa Quartzite, Cambrian Abrigo Formation, and Devonian Martin Formation, respectively. The lower Paleozoic units are in low-angle (reverse and normal) fault contact with underlying Tertiary to Cretaceous granitic intrusives. Detachment contacts are locally mylonitic and extensively sheared and brecciated. The overlying sediments are strongly folded on regional to outcrop scale, cut by high angle normal faulting, and are structurally well-prepared to host precious metals ore-bodies. The ore bodies developed at the Bonanza and Golden Eagle mines, which the district was built around, were primarily detachment fault-related, sediment- and intrusive-hosted gold deposits. Mineralizing fluids, following high and low angle structures, are inferred to have migrated up to and across low angle normal faulting where structural preparation and reactive host rock chemistry were conducive to the formation of significant ore-bodies. Historically at the Harquahala Mine, another of the district's original mines, gold and silver ores were extracted from altered structural zones along the detachment (originally described as a thrust) and replacement bodies in lower Paleozoic, calcareous quartzites, muddy limestones, dolomites, and shaley units. The sediment-hosted ores were focused along high angle feeder structures and averaged close to one troy ounce per ton gold and more than one half troy ounce per ton of silver. Underground working were sampled in the early 1980's revealing a large area (>= 250 foot length in workings at the 71 foot level) in altered, calcareous sandstones and quartzites of the Bolsa Quartzite. Assays, from ALS Chemex, of underground sampling conducted in February 2005 confirmed or improved upon the earlier sampling results. ACCESS The area is full of dirt roads, so a good map and a good GPS unit is a must, but we'll show you exactly where it is on the map as well as provide you with the precise latitude and longitude of each corner marker, so finding it will not be a problem for you. I advise caution whenever driving or hiking on this claim – the entire valley is dotted with abandoned mines – most of them are easy to see from a distance, but some of them are impossible to see until you are right on top of them. I would estimate that only 20% of them are roped or fenced off – the rest are wide open and you should be extremely careful if entering them. Note that all of the pictures of this claim were taken by my team and/or myself on a recent visit to this property. All Pictures are of the actual property – no stock photographs were used The winner of this auction will receive a quitclaim deed to each full claim and all associated documentation with maps showing full ownership of each claim. Mining claims are a tangible asset and show proof of all interests in minerals in the area. 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 full/all interest in this 20.66 acre lode mining claim. This claim covers the entire site, 1,500 ft. by 600 ft., and includes full rights to all minerals, gems and just about whatever else 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, we can assist you in filing the paperwork to waive the maintenance fee every year. That means you can only plan on paying $10 per year for your maintenance fee instead of $155. And let me just re-state once more the answer to the one question that I get asked the most often; you are bidding for full claim ownership, not just a down payment or a part of this 20.66 acre claim. Auction end price is the final price for the entire site – there are no phony transfer fees or handling costs of any kind! How do Transfers of Ownership in Mining Claims work? Interest in a properly recorded mining claim or site may be transferred in part or its entirety. So you can will, gift, sell or lease your interest in this claim at any time in the future. A quitclaim deed or recordable conveyance document is required and if you do sell the claim, the transfer documents should be filed within 60 days after the transfer. With regard to transferring this claim initially into your name, we take care of all the paperwork at our expense. You do not have to worry about anything – we handle the BLM transfer documentation and the recording. Then if you ever want to will or sell your claim in the future, we will gladly assist you on the paperwork for no charge. Can you camp / build on your mining claim? Without an approved plan of operations, you have the same rights and restrictions as the public. If the area is open to camping to the public, then it is permissible. 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 mining laws 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. All five of these requirements must be met for occupancy to be permissible.
