"Upper Jackson" Placer Mining Claim

Plumas County, California - Gold Past Producer

The Upper Jackson is a past producing gold placer mining claim found on the Jackson Creek, measuring 60 acres, located in Northeast California. 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.

Find gold surrounded by beautiful natural landscape in the Plumas National Forest next to round ol' Mt. Jackson! 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 Greagle!

The Jackson Creek ebbs and flows throughout the year, making it unique to pan. It roars in the spring and summer but seems to trickle in the winter. Never dry, however, it can be panned or sluiced all year long. With its dry spots, it can be dug and gold boxed to find gold no one could've seen or found anywhere else downstream. The Upper Jackson is the gateway through which all gold flows!

An incredible amount of natural rock flow has been noted at the Jackson Creek. These boulder formations are natural sluice boxes for gold. Bring a pick to hammer at some of these natural gold traps!

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.
