Rye Patch Claims

Pershing County, Nevada - Rye Patch Gold Nugget Territory

The Rye Patch claims are three dispersed 20-acre claims, totaling 60 acres, in the highly-sought after Rye Patch area, an area known for its large, bountiful and unique gold nuggets! Find your own fortune with just a metal detector, a classifier, and a shovel, and dig up gold nuggets as large as your thumb nail!

Hidden under Majuba Mt. and the Antelope Range lie large quartz and tourmaline veins laden with gold and silver. While a concerted effort was made to find these rich, hidden gold veins in the roaring 20's, still no one has found it to this day. Yet, large gold nuggets find their way to the surface every year, washed into the valley from the exposed peaks of the mountains. Many flocked to the base of these mountains to bring themselves from rags to riches during the Depression, and for nearly 90 years after, the tradition continues today with many walking away with their own little fortunes in their hands and pockets!

The local geology can easily be seen just by looking at the ground - gobs of quartz and tourmaline can be picked up in large chunks, with plenty of pyrite, chalcopyrite, and arsenopyrite running together with the minerals - excellent grounds for finding the rare chevron gold nuggets that characterize the Rye Patch area and plenty of gold dust!

The three claims lie in three well-separated areas, targeting three separate old river flows from the mountains. All three areas show the same characteristics: plenty of old water flow and tons of quartz and tourmaline on the surface.

A good dirt road leading from the Rye Patch State Recreation Area close to the Humboldt River Ranch will lead you straight to the claims in less than 15 minutes. The roads get rough, so four-wheel drive is recommended. Lovelock and Winnemucca both find themselves about 30 miles from the Reservoir, so you'll never be too far from a hot pizza, a cold beer, a warm bed, or just some gas and jerky.

Nevada gold claims for sale go fast in popular areas like Peavine and the Rye Patch area, so don't hesitate to snatch your own claim to riches in some of the most treasured spots in Nevada!
