This is one of the last remaining claims on the South Fork. Just down from the Rush Creek Mill Site and Rush Creek Mine, this claim has it all. Year around water with some of the best gold catches I have ever seen. S-Curve, bedrock with 2 to 5 inch quartz veins running up and down the claim, banks full of river rock. massive boulders, gravel bars, all of this making this a great location to pan, sluice, high bank, crevice, snipe, moss, metal detect, and dredge. Best of all is the gold...picture of the pan shown is gold from spot panning on the claim. There are several narrow quartz veins that run up and down this claim which in places have yielded small but rich pockets of gold near the surface as stated in the Mining District information below. The reason I state this is, with the level of the water at this time of year, this is the prime time to be using a metal detector to find those pockets of gold coming out of the quartz. This would also be the perfect spot for a dredging operation. This part of the river is actually easy to get to, but extremely hidden and isolated. There are several clearings just minutes from the claim with ample space. Creek side camping situated right on the water or a very large secluded area on your claim at the very end of the forestry road as shown on the map within the boundaries of your claim. Ample parking for a smaller 5th wheel trailer. 2-wheel drive access thru the spring, summer, and fall months, 4-wheel drive vehicles only in extreme weather conditions. This claim is the perfect balance of quiet Spring time and fun filled summer days. Cold winters and just enough snow to keep it interesting. Several bigger mines (see Harden Flat Mining District below) fed the river from the creeks just up from this claim. Don't be surprised to find gold wrapped quartz rock. There is quartz rock up and down the claim, be sure to break them open. This whole region has been hit with flood waters the last couple of winters. Bringing new deposits and the opportunity to find new placer gold. Forgot a daily essential or need an extra snack or two? No need to worry; there are two great general stores nearby (Rush Creek Lodge and Yosemite Lakes Country Store). This claim and the area are absolutely beautiful with lots of opportunity for finding gold. Here's your chance to own a great claim in a small but rich mining district that is just gorgeous and peaceful. Come see it for yourself and let this claim help you make mining a part of your family’s future. This claim is the real deal for an experienced or novice miner. With GOLD prices starting to move steadily upward, there is no better time to own a gold claim! Mining claims are mineral rights to Government land and the rights to extract precious metals. They are considered real property and can be bought, sold, leased, willed, transferred and etc. With that being said they have tremendous resale value.
