"Sierra Gold" Gold Placer Mountain
20 Acre Mining Claim

salmon creek
Sierra County, California - Salmon Creek Gold Placer

The "Sierra Gold" is a past producing placer mountain mining claim, measuring 20 acres, found in the North Yuba River area of the Tahoe National Forest. Camp, fish, and gold-pan around Salmon Creek, a small gold-bearing river that flows from the beautiful Upper and Lower Salmon Lakes, only a short hike from the claim! The claim is tucked away in the old-growth pines and surrounded by natural alpine water, with the large, well-stocked Gold Lake a short drive North.

The Sierra Gold claim finds itself downriver from the old Lone Wolf Group mines, mines that were assaying hundreds of dollars worth of gold in 1942. Eight decades of winter and weather have worn the hard rock of those mines down and have put their valuable ores the only place they can go: the Salmon Creek.

Gold Lake Highway is located only a few hundred feet from the claim, and Sierra City with all its amenities is a short 15 minute drive South, making getting there and staying there as easy as pie.

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.

Most answers about how to maintain your mining claim after purchase can be found on our frequently asked questions page.
