      Start mining right in the creek bed, or start shaving material from the strata levels on the high wall.  Best way to mine it is haul in some water, and a recirculating sluice/trommel and start running material!  Just hand-pan your concentrates and separate any black sands with a magnet.  This is a great beginner claim for people wanting to try their hand in dry-creek beds with a past gold production history!

      How to Mine Buckeye Creek Placer

      You can mine this claim year round.  The area just south of Garderville NV doesn't get much snow-fall, and the seasonal creek nearby the claim provides water constantly.  To start mining this claim there 3 methods could be used to start running tonnage, if you want to scale-up beyond hands and pans:

       - Dry-washing or hauling in water is going to be your best option!
       - Metal detector for pickers along the ravine, high banks from dozer cuts
       - Water recirculating sluice/trommel system
       - Haul ore to an off-site mill

      In my opinion, a dry washer would work wonders for this claim for a number of reasons.  Hauling water is always a pain, and with a gas-powered dry washer you can simply run material without the need of water-heavy sluice units.
