This claim spans over 891 feet of creek to work at your leisure. The Indian Creek runs at a good flow with depths ranging from 10-36 inches, and width ranging 3-10 ft. This creek is a historical mining area, full of mines from high on the mountains all the way to the bottom. The washout from the claims make the creek a great area for searching for gold and other minerals. QUICK FACTS ON THE MINE: Commodities: Primary Gold County: Beaver, UT The creek runs parallel with Indian Creek Road which is a well maintained 2WD dirt road and ranges from 5-25 ft. away from the creek. Drive out to the claim It is located in the Fishlake National Forest about 20 minutes from Beaver, UT which is a nice town filled with convenience and hardware stores, hotels and restaurants available. 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. Views from above While Gold is what most people are after, Rockhounds in Beaver County have reported finding deposits of: Jasper, Chalcedony, obsidian, rhyolite, pyrite, galena, sphalerite, chalcopyrite, fluorite, magnetite, and bornite. Aside from rockhounding, there is a lot of recreational activities in this particular area. Horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking are popular activities in the Indian Creek area. Many trails crisscross the surrounding valley and mountainsides, but remember Climbing on petroglyphs is unlawful and destructive. Come to Hike, Camp, Ride and Shoot - or come to pull some shiny rock$ out of the ground;-) INDIAN CREEK MINING An isolated geochemically anomalous sample containing 50 ppm gold and 20 ppm silver was discovered near the headwaters of Indian Creek and Butler Wash in the Butler Wash Wilderness Study Area. Further downstream, sampling indicates that the anomaly is common. Samples of the gold were isolated and examined by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The gold particles are small (less than 100 micrometers), angular (subhedral crystal surfaces), and show no evidence of significant transport. A likely source for this very fine grained gold is the remnant of Chinle Formation that caps the mesa in sections 25 and 26, T. 32 S., R. 19 E. Gold has been reported from the Chinle (Butler and others, 1920; Lawson, 1913) in small quantities, and some areas of larger accumulation has been found despite not much exploration in the area. Alternative explanations for the gold source include paleoplacers derived from deposits in the Abajo Mountains or from deposits related to the northeast-trending lineaments just south- east of the gold anomaly. Gold, and possibly silver, leached from wall rocks by rising chloride-rich brines from the salt in the Paradox could have emplaced these metals along the fractures. COUNTY HISTORY: Beaver County was named by the early settlers for the Beaver River which once had plentiful Beavers along its course. The County was formed in 1886 by the legislature of the, then, Territory of Utah. Early visitors to the area were the Dominguez-Escalante expedition in 1776 which came through the area which would become Milford. Jedediah S. Smith in 1826-27 and John C. Fremont in 1844 also traversed the county area. In April 1856, the first real settlers came from Parowan to build a new community. Fort Cameron was built in Beaver in 1873 for protection from Indian hostilities and also to aid in prosecution of those responsible for the Mountain Meadow Massacre. After the fort was abandoned in 1883, it became the Murdock Academy, a branch of the Brigham Young Academy of Provo. Though the county has much mining and good land for both grazing and livestock, it was prosperous because of its economic diversity. Mining, transportation and trade were helpful and diversifying aspects of the Beaver County economy. Mining towns popped up overnight during the 1875 discovery of the Horn Silver Mine in the San Francisco Mountains in the western county. Though other mines had been found, the Horn mine began a large "silver rush". Much of the early development in the county is due to the mines and their prosperity. The telegraph and railroad were both brought to the county because of the mines. Milford was settled largely because of the mining. MAPS 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. A couple of spare tires or an air compressor and patch kit or at least a couple of cans of tire sealant is strongly recommended for obvious reasons! Mining claims are a tangible asset just like any other Real property (real estate) and show a lifetime proof of all interests in minerals in the area specified by the above claim. Once you own this claim and the associated mineral rights, you will own them for life as long as you keep up with the annual fees. This claim can be bought, sold, leased or used as collateral, just like any other piece of real estate. A mining claim can be willed or passed down to future generations as part of a trust or your estate, or you can trade it, lease it out for a period or time (or indefinitely), gift it to a family member or friend and you can also transfer or sell just an interest in it in part or in its entirety just like any other real property using a quitclaim deed which is a recordable conveyance. In other words, you could sell a 25% or a 50% share in it if you wanted in order to bring on a partner in the future - or you could sell the entire claim in whole. This auction is for full/all interest in this 20 acre placer mining claim (unless the acreage indicated in the above mine description is different). This claim covers the entire site, (unless the claim description above describes different measurements), and includes full rights to all minerals, gems and just about whatever else you may find of value on the property (except oil and gas, which are handled separately). 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. We pay ALL fees associated with transferring this claim into your name - legal fees, title transfer fees, document fees, notary costs, recording fees and even shipping fees, so all you will pay is the final price of the auction, not a penny more. In order to hold on to your claim for life, you will need to pay an annual maintenance fee to the Government (BLM, not us) every year. Currently the maintenance fee is $165 per year per claim that you own, and it is due on September 1st of every year. NOTE that 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 will only pay $15 per year for your maintenance fee instead of $165. We guarantee that all past fees have been paid in full and there are no outstanding debts or amounts owed on the claim prior to the transfer of ownership into your name. The federal government retains ownership of the land - so this means that you will not have any annual real estate taxes due on your mining claim, and you will not have to maintain liability insurance in case someone gets injured on your claim due to no fault of your own. How do Transfers of Ownership in Mining Claims work if I decide to sell my claim in the future? First, we handle all the paperwork and costs associated with transferring this claim into your name should you win this auction. But if you decide to sell this claim at some point in the future, interest in a properly recorded mining claim or site may be transferred (i.e sold) in part or its entirety. A quitclaim deed or recordable conveyance document is required and if you do sell your claim someday and the transfer documents should be filed within 60 days after the transfer. We can and will help you with the paperwork for no cost should you need a hand selling your claim in the future if you pay all of the County, State and Federal fees (usually less than $40 to $60). But again - 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 county recording. 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.Although it is possible to build a permanent structure on a mining claim, it is extremely expensive and you will have to jump through way too many hoops to consider it easy to do. It would have to be in support of a commercial, year-round mining operation for starters, and you would need to post a large reclamation bond to insure that if you ever abandoned your claim, the bond would pay for the removal of the structure and the reclamation or the area. So in short, it is technically possible to build on your mining claim, but just be aware that it is very difficult and expensive to do - however, camping is almost always involved unless your claim is in a wilderness area, which is not very common at all. Proud Member of: In addition to handling all of the paperwork to transfer this claim into your name, as well as paying all of the fees so you do not have any costs other than the final price of the auction when the bidding closes, we also pay all of the costs associated with mailing the paperwork to you as well as to the County and Federal Government for recording and sending you back certified copies. We will ship you a folder with all paperwork, claim coordinates, maps and information on your claim, including a CD-Rom with all of the pictures of your claim upon your payment in full clearing. We ship everything to you the same business day (if payment is received by 1:00 PM Pacific Standard Time) - and we will always provide you with the tracking information so you are always informed. You initial claim packet that we mail has an unrecorded deed so that you can show ownership immediately after payment and be able to visit your claim. A second original deed goes to the County for recording the same day, and a third original deed goes to the BLM for certification as well. Both of those originals will be returned to you so you will wind up with several original deeds - but the County and BLM deeds can take 3 to 6 weeks to be returned to you, which is why we send you the initial original on day one. Your payment of this eBay auction item in full gives you 100% ownership of this entire claim, with no other fees and/or other costs for the transfer of ownership required. This is NOT an auction for the down payment, this is NOT a partnership arrangement where someone else will own part of the claim with you, and there are NO other fees or costs for the transfer of this claim in your name. eBay does not allow checkout on the eBay website for any Real Estate transactions - simply because it is not like selling a widget - the transfer of real estate is complicated and requires notary work, licensed professionals and recording. Note that this is eBay’s rules and not ours and it is the same for any mining claim seller on eBay. We provide financing plans with no interest or fees. Financing terms are minimum of $500 down with the balance will due within 90-days via three equal monthly payments of the remaining balance after the down payment has been paid. With all financing plans, we do not transfer the final deed into your name until the claim has been paid in full. In the event of a default on a payment plan, we do not refund your down payment - however, we do allow you to put that down payment towards any other purchase as a store credit in full. If you are financing a climate and there is less than 90 days until September 1st (i.e. from June 1st through September 1st), when the annual fee for mining claims is due to the Federal Government, we will add the $165 maintenance fee to your down payment and pay it to the BLM on your behalf thereby increasing your down payment to $665 instead of $500 - however, the $165 portion of the down payment does not go towards your principle balance since it is used to pay the annual fees to the government, therefore the actual down payment credit will still be $500. Approval for financing is automatic as long as you have a valid eBay account in good standing. Condition: Who are we? We’re A+ Rated with the BBB. Innovator of the year, 2016 E&MJ.
