Hello up for sale is this beautiful 20 acre unpatented placer gold mining claim on Jackson Creek in Nevada County, California.
Test samples showed great color and the surrounding area is stunning with a few quiet lakes within a mile.
"This district is in northeastern Nevada County in the vicinity of English Mountain and Bowman Lake. The area was first mined during the 1860's, followed by activity at the English Mountain gold and copper mines during the 1890's and early 1900's. There has been minor prospecting since. The area is underlain by slate, schist, hornfels and granite, all of which are cut by diorite and quartz-diorite dikes. The ore deposits consist of iron-rich zones containing quartz, free gold, galena, pyrite, and chalcopyrite. Molybdenite is abundant in places. The principal gold sources have been the English Mountain Gold and Yellow Metal mines."
As you can see, there are many lakes within just a few miles (Bowman Lakes, Sawmill Lake and Jackson Lake). These lakes are some of California's best trout fishing lakes. Some pictures are of Bowman Lake on the way to the claim.
Great place to get away for the weekend. With great camping nearby including a bear box, fire ring, and 2 lakes within one mile.
I am located in the east bay area of San Francisco and the gold mining claim is in Nevada County, California. If you are interested in buying the claim feel free to do some sample gold panning on the claim please email me and I will give you the directions to the claim.
I just paid the taxes for the claim and there not due again until September 2016.
