The Salmon River watershed is clean, completely undammed & unpolluted with its drainage coming from high upon the summits rather than through large towns & farmlands.
~ Property is loaded with gold traps that can build over time into enormous cache's of gold. Any major storms should always be draining rich new high-grade material to this property. The claim should be carrying pretty heavy values.
Natural gold traps run the entire length of the claim. Great potential for deep and shallow dredging where cracks in bedrock can literally be filled with gold. Crevicing, vack mining and mossing are other great ways to find surprising amounts of gold. Highbanking prospects exist in hard-packed streambed all along the river banks and on the benches above.

~ Testing over time has shown excellent values. This is a property where you should see good gold in your riffles at every cleanup, not just specks of color.

Work the property for immediate returns &/or hold as a speculative investment opportunity in the event of patenting being reinstated &/or the price of gold going higher.

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. Currently there's a moratorium on dredging that's subject to change in the future, In all probability this property is just getting richer.as values continue to accumulate,
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 goldcountry, 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 an average recovery of 1/4 - 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.
