California Yuba River Gold Claims


About The Claims

Invest in something REAL - California GOLD Mining Claims. Rugged and remote and full of gold the 49'ers left behind for you to find with more modern, efficient methods. 360 acres with over 1 mile on the North Fork Yuba River - the best gold bearing river in the USA. Includes gold-bearing creek frontage on a watershed where 100-300 ounce pockets of gold have been found.

Located above New Bullard's Bar Reservoir, the water is clear and warm in the summer, no need for a wet/dry suit. Gold is scattered along the bottom of the bedrock stuck in cracks and clearly visible to the naked eye! Claims are only at 1200 feet allowing prospecting year round with little or no snow.

These claims are VERY SPECIAL because the La Porte or North Yuba channel crosses through or is tangential to the claims. This tertiary channel was the richest in the area. Above the claims was the former hydraulic mine of Pittsburgh Hill. Deadwood Creek, which has a rich history of producing placer gold and historic Trask and Wambo Bars are also on them.

Take advantage of the surge in gold prices and grab this up at only $200,000.

NEW .... Geological Report

From what I can tell from the literature, the auriferous Tertiary Yuba Channel flowed from La Porte to North Juan to Smartville, which is east of your claim group. This is good because the rivers/creeks that are eroding these deposits flow into the Yuba River. Your claims located on the North Branch of the Yuba River. The two prominent drainages are Slate Creek and Canyon Creek and both of these drainages were very rich in gold. The Yuba River and Slate Creek junction is located on the eastern boundary of the claim and the Canyon Creek junction with the Yuba is just east of the claim. This would put your claims at the receive end of the gold that came down these creeks.

There is showings of abundant gravels bars along side the river bank. Some of them have vegetation and some do not, suggesting both active flood and benches where the annual floods don't reach. It is hard to tell from the photo if there are remnant channel deposits higher up the hillside, but because of the steep topography, it is doubtful they would have significant volumes.

New Bullards Bar Reservoir may inundate part of your claim during high water times of the reservoir. This could facilitate the dropping out of the gold from the annual floods on your claim.

Looks like a great spot for a claim!
