This claim is located in Idaho's Clearwater National Forest, in Idaho and Clearwater Counties along Lolo Creek. (claim is in Township 35N, Range 6E,Section 35, EBM) From Pierce, Idaho take road 100 south to road 103 and head upstreamabout5.9 miles then take a left up road 5019 about2.8 miles to the gps line.
Lots of privacy here. From the top road 5019 it requires a hike down in but still only about500-600 feet from the road to the stream channel. Theresold overgrown skid trailshere and room to camp at various places along 5019.
You will not be disappointed in the beauty here in "God's Country" The creek is crystal clear andplenty fast for your sluice box.
For you history buffs, this is in the Pierce Mining District of the Gold Rush days. It is alsoon the Nez Perce National Historical Trail and near the Lewis and Clark National Historical Trail.
There isabout750 FEET+ of excellent stream channel suitable for non-powered recreational mining equipment such as sluice box,classify and panning. I don't believe it is currently open for suction dredging butI'm told highbanking within the normal high water marks may be allowed as long as you are not altering the stream channel. (a footbal field is 300 feet so you have a huge amount of creek here to work with!)
It is possible you may be able to acquire dredge permit for this segment of the creek but you'll have to do your own research with IDWR oncurrent dredgingand various power equipment status. I've provided links to all the necessary agencies who get paid to sit and answer your questions all day long.

Dense with cedars, hemlocks, Western Larches, and other coniferous trees, the lands in 1.8-million-acre Clearwater National Forest lift and plunge in a series of deep drainages and high-backed ridges. This is ideal for freeing up gold and other mineral deposits from the land and placing it within the stream beds and sediment of many creeks that feed the Middle and North Forks of the Clearwater River and the Lochsa River, which traverse the region.
You are offerding on the full purchase price and sole ownership of this 10 acre gold mining claim as shown.
This rich Unpatented Placer Mine is in the Clearwater National Forest, conveniently located near the Lolo Creek Campground on the Lolo Motorway and is an awesome place for the sportsman to hunt, camp, fish, and prospect as well. The large deer, elk and small game population provide for some great hunting, as well as the trout provide some great fishing for the angler.
I've found this US Geological Survey report on another (or a past)Lolo Creek mining claim that shows (at the time of the report) a reported production of 51-100 ounces! Most claim owners won't report any, in order to keep their info confidential, but I'm glad to see this one did!

Additional "About the Area":
Geology experts say thatless than 20 percent of the gold in the Western United States has been recovered. Streams, rivers and creeks in gold country are constantly being replenished with the valued metal.
Rich in mining history,Orofino, Pierce, and Weippe Idaho, in Clearwater County are the nearby towns.
Clearwater County, which was formed in 1911 from parts of Nez Perce, Shoshone, and Idaho Counties, had a total gold production through 1942 of about 29,136 ounces (Staley, 1946, p. 18) ; from 1943 through 1959, it produced 1,001 ounces. Most of the gold credited to Clearwater County came from the Pierce district in Tps. 36 and 37 N., Rs. 4 and 5 E. However, most of the gold mining in this district occurred before Clearwater County was in existence; hence, the early production is included with other counties.
In the fall of 1860, E. D. Pierce led a party of 12 miners into the upper Clearwater River region, a territory then guarded by the Nez Perce Indians. Within a short time, substantial amounts of gold were found in the gravels of Orofino Creek, a tributary of the Clearwater River. Before the end of the year, the town of Pierce was founded, and enough gold was mined to attract a horde of prospectors despite forceful Indian objections (S. M. Barton, M. W. Wells, and E. Oberbillig, written commun., 1958). The placers of this district were the first in Idaho to be worked on a large scale, and their development accelerated interest in gold prospecting throughout the State.
Unlike many other districts that collapsed completely after the initial boom, the Pierce district continued to be active, though after 1875 the pace was slower. Ross (1941, p. 37) estimated a total production of between $5 and $10 million in gold before 1875. Lindgren (1904, p. 102) reported the production before 1902 in this manner: "A guess may be hazarded that the total output of Pierce is in the vicinity of $5 million." According to S. M. Barton, M. W. Wells, and E. Oberbillig (written commun., 1958), the most productive period was between 1861 and 1867, when gold with an estimated value of $3,400,00 was produced. A noticeable decline in production began in 1866 because lower grade deposits were being mined by Chinese labor employed at low wages. In later years the district was rejuvenated periodically by large-scale dredging operations. Some time before 1905 lode mines were developed and yielded about $250,000 in gold. The most important of these was the Wild Rose mine (Thomson and Ballard, 1924, p. 114). The placers were worked on a moderate scale through the 1930's.Total production of the district through 1959 was about 385,000 ounces.
The Pierce district is underlain by granitic rocks of the Idaho batholith, Precambrian metasedimentary rocks of the Belt Series, and Columbia River Basalt (Ross, 1941, p. 37). The lode deposits are discontinuous fissure fillings of quartz, auriferous pyrite, free gold, and some arsenopyrite. They are distributed in or near gneissic bodies and are closely associated with pegmatite, aplite, and diabase dikes.
The placers are in stream channels and on terraces as much as 500 feet above present streams. Terrace deposits possibly were formed along stream channels dammed by the Columbia River Basalt (Ross, 1941, p. 37) and were left in their present perched positions by subsequent erosion of later diverted drainage systems. Perched or bench placer deposits are characteristic of much of the area in central Idaho.
With ownership of an unpatented mining claim you own the mineral rights to the land. The government still owns the land but it is yours to occupy, camp, recreate, hunt, fish etc. on while also devoting some time to looking for gold, gemstones, or other valuable minerals and resources.
You do have the right to hold this claim forever as long as the necessary annual paper work is done on the claim with BLM.
You have the right to sell the claim, lease it, or will it to anyone. In other words this can be in your family for many years to come and this is definitely a claim worth owning.
Payment due within7 days please via personal check,bank check, cash, orhowever we agree upon. Paypal policy does not allow their service for paymentson land, property acreage, water, grazing, mineral or oil leases, or any real estate transactions including mineral rights claims.
