The Giant King dates back to the days of the gold rush and consists of 24 contiguous unpatented lode claims and a deeded 4 acre parcel with a 3,200sqft metal building with a 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath residence only 2.5 miles from the mine. Property also has a state of the art solar system.. Total acreage is approx. 484 acres. The Giant King is bordered on west by the world famous Red Ledge Mine... on the south by the Phelps Hill Mine... the Famous Alpha Diggings to the east is part of the Giant King's lode claims. The Melones Fault extends south from the world famous 16 to 1 Mines directly through the Giant King. You couldn't ask for better neighbors or a better neighborhood.




For more in depth information, email us for the 85 page history of the Giant King Mine. The history contains maps, mine blue prints and assays from 1911 and the late 30's. You can also download renown geologist, Dan Hausel's recent analysis of the Giant King.

Melones Fault
Of major importance, the famous Melones Fault cuts through the middle of the Giant King. Most of the gold mines within the Mother Lode System are localized along the Melones Fault, a steep, easterly dipping crustal-scale suture that extends from Plumas County in the north to Mariposa County in the south. This structure marks the boundary between several tectonic terrains.

The quartz veins in this region typically extend to thousands of feet in depth and are noted for rich ore shoots often containing spectacular pockets of Gold-in-Quartz running hundreds or thousands of ounces per ton. Considering the large size of the Giant King's quartz structure, and the fact that both the Melones Fault structure and the southern continuation of the 16-to-l vein system pass directly through the Giant King's property, the Giant King property has an excellent potential for long-term quartz gold production.

History
The Washington district was first mined during the gold rush, and the placers of the Middle Yuba River were highly productive. The Omega and Alpha hydraulic mines were opened in the mid 1850's and worked on a major scale through the 1880s. Later, Chinese miners reworked the tailings. Lode mining also began in the 1850's and continued steadily until about 1915. There was activity in the district again during the 1930s, and the Red Ledge mine has been worked in recent years. Barite, chromite, and asbestos also have been mined here.

Geology
The district is underlain chiefly by slate, schist and quartzite of the Blue Canyon Formation (Carboniferous). A serpentine body one to two miles wide crops out in the central portion. The Relief Quartzite (Carboniferous) and amphibolite lie to the west and granodiorite to the east. The serpentine is a south extension of a belt that passes north-northwest through Alleghany and Goodyear's Bar in Sierra County. Tertiary andesite overlies the main ridges to the north and south.








Ore Deposits
The auriferous Tertiary channel gravels at Alpha and Omega pass through the southern borders of the Giant King and are part of the main channel that extends west and north to Relief and North Bloomfield. Jarmin (1927) estimated that, at Omega, 13 million yards were mined and yielded 13.5 cents in gold per yard. Lindgren (1911) estimated that 40 million yards remained. The quartz veins contain small but rich ore bodies, similar to those of the Alleghany district to the north, but are not as plentiful. Except for arsenopyrite, sulfides are not usually abundant. A number of beautiful specimens of crystallized gold have been found in the neighboring Red Ledge mine. The Spanish mine also has yielded large amounts of barite.

Special Note:
The largest Quartz Structure / Vein ever discovered in California was at the Giant king Mine! Most hard rock miners get excited when they discover a quartz vein 18 inches wide. At the Giant King, you can actually stand inside carved out quartz chambers 30 feet high and 20-30 feet wide! Keep in mind, the Giant King covers only a small portion the 480 acre property. There are many,many more quartz outcroppings on the property. Some so large, you won't believe your eyes!






There are currently 7,000 to 10,000 tons of stockpiled ore in the Giant King waiting to be hauled out for processing! This is ore that was blasted and stockpiled by the last commercial operators in 1939. In a 21 day period, 554 tons of ore was processed and yielded 125.71 ounces of gold! At today's gold prices that equals $222,506! This is the same ore that is stockpiled in the mine today! The independent Milling Report verifying these numbers is included in the History of the Giant King Mine.

Additionally, there is approximately 50,000 tons of blocked ore in the middle adit and 100,000 tons of blocked ore in the upper most adit waiting to be blasted and hauled out.
