West Jackson, 40 Acre Placer

Plumas County, California - Gold Past Producer

The West Jackson Creek is a past producing Northeastern California placer claim for sale, measuring 40 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 gold producers of history! Act as the gateway and capture gold before it flows into the Middle Fork Feather River and becomes lost downstream forever!

The Jackson Creek flows strongest in the spring and still flows throughout the fall and the winter, making it available all year long! Pan and sluice to your heart's content using the natural waterfalls found at several spots along the creek for natural, water-based power for automated set-ups! Pan it by hand in the beauty of the Sierras in Spring and Summer, and let the machines handle the rest during Winter and Fall.

The landscape around Mt. Jackson changes yearly, with new rock barreling down the mountain every year, revealing fresh gravels and material packed with quartz and black sands galore.

Well-maintained roads carve a path to the claim site, making the site easy to park next to and access without much 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 either down the road at the quaint little green touristy town of Graeagle, or up North in Quincy!

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.
