The Surveyors reported substantial jasper and hematite samples on the surface. The mines were originally worked for gold and showed high potential for platinum.
Largest returns will be on the deposits of gold and platinum. There is easy money to be made on the Jasper Mine in samples and stones to be sold to rockhounds. There are thousands of tons of high quality samples of jasper and hematite.
Access to the mines is direct and relatively easy. It does require 4wd and a good bit of clearance for some wash crossings and gulches on the roads in.
This claim is located in sunny Arizona and can be worked year round. There are no resources and the Jasper claim is located in a markedly harsh area of the Arizona desert.
History of the Jasper Mine
Only minimal amounts of gold were located during the 1900s. while searching for the gold deposits, the jasper and hematite were piled up as waste rock. In the early 1960s rock collectors began to notice the beauty of the jasper and hematite. This started a bit of a rush on samples of contrasting rock.
Jasper and Hematite pieces are found today in high-end collections and used as jewelry. The claim has Jasper and Hematite samples in abundance, in addition, some of the samples are shot with blue streaks of azurite and possible turquoise. Some samples can be found with galena silver streaks and azurite as well as the deep red from the jasper and the black of the hematite.
