They are decent for smallish amounts of super fine gold. I have 3 young boys that love spending time at the claims (gold or not). I’d like to find some more productive ground in Colorado even if it is a lease deal. I’d be fine with something like a 20 deal if I could reasonably get ~1oz per week using mostly man power and my small trailer mounted wash plant. Where do I...

4 Replies and 2149 Views Gold Claims in California  2149  4 Started by I'm not even sure where to post this as its my first post here. Mostly I just scan the forums and property listings for interesting ideas on places to go panning. This had me thinking. recently a Buddy of mine filed for a mining claim in Nevada which he said was rather easy by comparison to California. Does anyone have experience or know how to do this in California. I've looked around online for a while and the information doesn't seem that helpful. As he put it, 'Yeah they bury the forms on p...

Most are only a five dollar increase but if you did not included the correct amount it could cause problems including the loss of your claim. I have tried to highlight the federal register notice areas of interest and the table of the increases. The new amount is on the far right side of the table. Major issue for most miners at this time is the increase in the filing fee with BLM for the Affidavit of Labor or Proof of Labor, this is ...
