A Premium Gold Mining Property Listing
Brown's Bar I placer gold property
20-acre unpatented placer mining claim
Salmon River Mining District - Siskiyou County, CA
Located In a region highly prized for its richness in gold
North Fork of the Salmon River, aka;
"The richest little river in America".
1925 California State Mineralogist’s report states that from Sawyers Bar (Eddy Gulch) to The Forks of Salmon (12 mi. downriver) produced over 2M ounces of gold -equal to billions at today's gold price. This is a river & region that continues to pay its property owners in heavy quantities of gold.

Salmon River gold properties - Highly prized for their richness in gold.

This property is rare.  A very small percentage of land in the lower 48 is known to contain this quality of richness in gold.  Of all the gold claims in the U.S., only a few hundred people own gold properties of this caliber. This is a chance to own one of the very best gold claims in America.

Rarely will you find one of these particular gold claims being offered for sale. 

What one most often finds in any historically productive placer gold mining area is that all the accessible good (mineral-in-character) placer ground is staked up and has been for decades with title maintained.  In other instances, some unclaimed land may be "mineral-in-character", but the deposit is situated in extremely rugged utterly inaccessible terrain, steep-walled canyons, sometimes without even an access trail and/or miles from existing roads. 

This is a rare opportunity to own a placer gold property that provides excellent access to approximately 1/4 mile of waterway that is historically known as one of the richest gold producers in the United States - where owners find gold in paying quantities rather than just specks of color. This is an area where paying quantities of gold can be found within this property's ancient river gravels, that predominately remain virgin, and very rich in gold.


In most cases our mining claims will pay for themselves over and over again for decades to come.  A past customer recovered approximately one-half of his purchase price in less than two weeks (of dredging) on his mining claim, & he moved less than 30-linear feet of streambed.  He has approximately 1,290-ft. left to mine (in the river), let alone prospecting any high bench material for placer, pockets, sources / lodes, overall.

Each property we offer for sale is situated in gold bearing land in a region where placer and lode mining operations have recovered (and documented) millions of dollars worth of gold. 

This is pocket gold country, where very large gold specimens have been discovered. Natural gold traps in this region have the potential to contain incredible cache's of gold.

Conservatively speaking, our river placer properties should contain thousands of ounces of fine gold within their boundaries as well as untold amounts of big fat flakes, jewelry-sized pickers, and very large chunky-sized specimen gold nuggets. Persistent panning should produce an approx. pennyweight of gold per day using nothing more than a few basic hand tools. Any serious highbanking operation should result in the recovery of a minimum of 2-5 pennyweight a day, (1/8-1/4 oz.).  Based on what we have recovered here and on several adjacent claims any hard worker with a 5-in. dredge should result in a minimum recovery of 1oz.of gold per day. This does not include hitting into rich paystreaks, finding specimen gold nuggets, locating gold-filled seams or cracks in bedrock or the abundance of richness that can be found on bedrock, or finding pockets / sources of gold.
These are incredible values at today's prices, to say nothing of future bullish gold price speculations.


All things considered we are certain you will find this property fairly priced to sell.
The price is based upon very positive values recovered on the property - upstream and downstream from the property, and on the current price of gold. This gold claim offers multiple opportunities for mining with great access overall in a remote section of the ancient river channel on a river that is known for its ongoing gold discoveries. The layout of the property is excellent in terms of access, camping, convenience, and challenge. The property has been virtually untouched by modern gold mining methods.  We also offer terms -This should speak loudly of the confidence we have in the integrity of the gold properties we sell. Paying quantities of gold is guaranteed.
