California Placer Gold for Sale:
Jackson Creek Placer Mining Claim

Plumas County, California - Gold Past Producer

The Jackson Creek placer is a past producing Northeastern California placer gold mining claim for sale, measuring 60 acres alongside the Jackson Creek. Five miles from the famous Plumas-Eureka mine, the Jackson Creek shares rich mountain territory with some of the biggest producers of history! Pan for your fortune where the Jackson Creek peeks above the surface to reveal its golden treasures before taking its gold deep underground again.

The Jackson Creek ebbs and flows throughout the year, making it unique to pan. It roars in the spring and summer and trickles in the winter. Never dry, however, it can be panned or sluiced all year long, and with its many dry spots in the winter, the Jackson can be dug and sluiced for fresh gold all year long.

Plenty of quartz and large boulders can be found on site. The Jackson Creek pushes a lot of material downstream and can be caught on this claim site before it disappears down the mountain. Lots of gold bearing gravels on site.

Well-maintained roads carve a path to the claim site, making the site easy to park next to and access without hiking. Picnic benches and camping sites can be found nearby, in case you plan an extended stay! If you don't, a hot meal can be found five miles down the road in the quaint green little touristy town of Graeagle!

Mining Claims & Transfer Process

An unpatented mining claim gives the holder the right to mine on mineral-rich land that belongs to the federal government. It is a tangible asset that shows proof of all interests in minerals in the area. They can be bought, sold or used as collateral, just like any other piece of real estate.  Mining claims have been bought and sold for 150+ years.

The mining claim deed conveys all mineral rights, and interests to you.  A copy of the deed is also issued to the Bureau of Land Management for recording.  The transfer process typically is completed by all parties, and the official paperwork returned to you within 10-14 days after purchase.
