"Hidden Gulch" 40 Acre Placer Claim

Oregon Gold Claims for Sale:
Jackson County, Oregon - Gold Past Producer

Hidden Gulch is a past producing gold placer mining claim, measuring 40 acres, located in Southwest Oregon in the Applegate mining district! Twenty miles South of Grant's Pass and half of that from the little town of Applegate lies Hidden Gulch, a placer claim tucked away in the Siskiyou Mountains. Thousands of Pacific ponderosa pines and the naturally formed-crescent shape of the surrounding mountainside make the Hidden Gulch claim a secluded spot with amazing natural cover against the elements and jealous, prying eyes!

The recently-dried Brush Creek cut itself fifty-feet down into the mountainside when it flowed, and now sits dormant covered by fallen logs, rolling rock, and loose vegetation. Trapped underneath what covers Brush Creek lies what it carried for years: gold-bearing black sands and clay. Basic digging tools are all that's needed to tap into the gold-rich soil the Brush Creek once stirred up. Culverts and sluices along the Brush Creek's path snake through the claim to the road, creating natural hotspots for gold! Fresh water flows a short drive down the road from the claim site, so panning or sluicing what you find nearby won't be an issue.

The Last Chance mine (300ft from the claim marker) and the Charlotte Prospects (highlighted below) also lie within the claim boundaries. Nature has taken its toll on these two areas, making the exact locations and what they were looking for seemingly impossible to find, but one wonders what metallic treasures could still be around?

Excellent, well-maintained dirt roads lead half-a-mile up to the claim, at which point nature has reclaimed what little road remains leading to the Hidden Gulch. Little towns dot the way leading to Hidden Gulch, meaning you won't be far from a hot meal and a shower. Applegate Lake, just a few miles South of the claim, has fresh snacks, clean bathrooms, is always open for a quick dip or line-cast.
