The Tule Canyon Placers 80 Acre Mining Claim
Esmeralda County, Nevada - Gold/Silver Past Producer
The Tule Canyon Placers is a multi-ore, past producing placer mining claim, measuring 80 acres, located in Western Nevada, just outside the famous mining ghost town of Gold Point, NV. Riding the Walker Lane, this spot's enhanced permeability means high geothermal activity - rich gold territory!
The claim is perfect for dry-washing! A dry riverbed, with tributaries from deeper within the Canyon, over 3,750+ft long and averaging 16ft deep to bedrock finds itself on the claim; a dry-washer's dream. What's more, the once-flowing river straddled the contact zone between Tule Canyon and Magruder Mountain, where higher pressures below the surface produced the perfect conditions for gold formation. Further upstream, the Los Angeles Rock and Gravel Co. performed extensive work for years which flowed down the dry river bed. You can still find the relics of the Los Angeles Rock and Gravel Co. nearby...
Directly to the South of the claim, fellow prospectors at Silver Range Resources working in Tule Canyon found grab samples yielding upwards of 37.3g/t of gold in the early Spring of 2023, with the average running 18.5g/t of gold. Further, extremely high levels of silver can be found: highs of 5,090g/t of silver in some spots, with 1,370.8g/t on average. The gold is coarse and is often found in its quartz matrix.
The first recorded production was back in 1871, and came to a screeching halt in 1937 after the Los Angeles Rock and Gravel Co. packed up and left. With the lack of water driving the diggers out, the Canyon hasn't ever been fully worked.
No local water present, so this spot of land needs water trucked in to work. If you need a refill, the residents at Gold Point or Goldfield will have what you need.
A decent dirt road exiting the small town of Gold Point, NV will lead you right to the claim. Four-wheel drive is recommended. Amenities can be found in the mining ghost-town of Gold Point, NV just a few miles away or in full service towns nearby like Tonopah and Beatty, NV.
Nearby, you'll find the still-standing history of the One-Eyed Preacher and his immaculate cabin. Taken care of by local residents, stop by and camp under its roof for a night or two!

How to Mine the TULE PLACERS:
There's been quite a bit of successful placer mining activity in Tule Canyon over the years.
- Dry-washing or hauling in water is going to be your best option!
- Metal detector for pickers along the ravine, high banks from dozer cuts
- Water recirculating sluice/trommel system
- Haul ore to an off-site mill
In my opinion, a dry washer would work wonders for this claim for a number of reasons. Hauling water is always a pain, and with a gas-powered dry washer you can simply run material without the need of water-heavy sluice units.
There's been thousands of ounces of gold recovered from TULE CANYON and new deposits form in the canyon every year!
You'll run a good amount of material if you fire up your new dry-washer! New gold deposits form every year with the movement of water and melt off.
