Humbug Creek 80 Acre Gold Placer Claim for Sale

.

NEW!  The Little Humbug Creek is one of the gold-rich tributaries that feed the Klamath River fresh gold nuggets, some reportedly as large as 5oz., every year. A laundry list of lode mines on the nearby surrounding hills dug to find the source of the gold - The Norma, the Big Slide, the Lost Nugget, the Jack Pierson, the Clemper Mine, the Golden Hope, and the White River Mines to name a few - and while some found success, no lode mine was quite as good as the men pulling the gold straight out of the Little Humbug Creek.

The Little Humbug Creek flows strong and wide during the spring but begins to dry up toward the end of summer. By fall, plenty of new riverbed and natural gold traps to pan and sluice reveal themselves, fresh for the taking!  Thousands of feet of river side access with steep banks at some areas. A recent fire has swept through the area and loosened much of the ground surrounding the river, and you'll notice areas of the gorge that have fallen into the creek.

  • One of the most sought after tributaries, second only to the McKinney Creek!
  • One of the biggest contributors of BIG gold nuggets into the Klamath River!
  • Great for small-scale hands-and-pans-style prospecting and gold mining
  • Strong spring and summer water flows, - lots of dry workable ground by fall
  • The claim is the last stop before the gold flows into the Klamath

Feel free to visit the claim and do some sampling at your leisure. Common GPS systems both handheld or in a vehicle will lead you straight there without issue.

Old, abandoned lode mines from the days of the gold rush point to the richness of the mountains that feed gold into the Little Humbug. New regulations and the passage of time have shown these mines their last days, but that doesn't mean the gold stopped flowing from the mountains. Rather, quite the opposite; the gold left on the mountain can roll safely into the creek without someone stealing it away first!

Several general stores and shops line Route 96 up to the claim, meaning you're never far from some quick refreshments and snacks. While RVs and campers are well accommodated in the area, gas, lodgings, and other amenities are harder to come by for others, but can be found in Yreka, CA - about an hour's drive - or in Weed, CA - a two hour drive.
