Located In a region highly prized for its richness in gold
With so many mining claims on the market today, how do I make the wisest decision for buying a valid, high-quality gold property?

"If you want to shoot an elephant, you go to elephant country".

As you look around at the many different "mining claims" being offered today, aside from the seller guaranteeing that the title is free of any encumbrances, a major concern should be whether or not the property actually contains paying quantities of whatever valuable minerals being touted.
Common sense dictates that no-one in their right mind would sell a property to you for a few thousand dollars, that had been tested and known to have rich material.

Ask the seller to show you their own recovered values. Ask them how many days / months / years the property has been owned by them, how long
it's been tested, by what means, and what their average values have been.
Don't let them merely show you a lot of pretty pictures and generally baffle you with a lot of seemingly reputable talk while expounding on their purported profound credentials and those of the mining claim,

You should be allowed to sample and find gold/values on the property too. A revealing way to sample any property is to dig up some material from a few logical gold traps and pan that material down. In the end, you should come up with good gold in your pan.

Lots of pretty pictures out there Folks, but few Sellers show any of their own recovered values.

If the seller can't show you their own recovered values, or speak of their own past production averages, and/or if you can't find any valuable minerals either; the claim may be invalid - you might want to walk away from the sale.

We show you gold right from the start.

Salmon River gold properties - Highly prized for their richness in gold.

This property is rare.  A very small percentage of land in the lower 48 is known to contain this quality of richness in gold.  Of all the gold claims in the U.S., only a few hundred people own gold properties of this caliber. This is a chance to own one of the very best gold claims in America.

Rarely will you find one of these particular gold claims being offered for sale. 

What one most often finds in any historically productive placer gold mining area is that all the accessible good (mineral-in-character) placer ground is staked up and has been for decades with title maintained.  In other instances, some unclaimed land may be "mineral-in-character", but the deposit is situated in extremely rugged utterly inaccessible terrain, steep-walled canyons, sometimes without even an access trail and/or miles from existing roads. 

This is a rare opportunity to own a placer gold property that provides excellent access to approximately 3/4 mile of waterway that is historically known as one of the richest gold producers in the United States - where owners find gold in paying quantities rather than just specks of color. This is an area where paying quantities of gold can be found within this property's ancient river gravels, that predominately remain virgin, and very rich in gold.


All things considered we are certain you will find this property fairly priced to sell. The price is based upon very positive values recovered on the property - upstream and downstream from the property, and on the current price of gold. This gold claim offers multiple opportunities for mining with great access overall in a remote section of the ancient river channel on a river that is known for its ongoing gold discoveries. The layout of the property is excellent in terms of access, camping, convenience, and challenge. The property has been virtually untouched by modern gold mining methods. We also offer terms -This should speak loudly of the confidence we have in the integrity of the gold properties we sell. Paying quantities of gold is guaranteed.

If the properties are so rich, why is The Claim Post selling (them)?

Information at a glance...

If you''re looking for a first-class any-time-of-year gold property, then this could be the offer you've been waiting for. Located within a district where its big gold history and present-day gold discoveries are well documented, this is a select opportunity to own a gold property situated in one of the most renowned gold rich regions in America.

Property should contain extreme gold values.

~ This is a 50-acre river property that provides drive up access throughout... You can drive all along the beach at riverside from one end to the other with ease... Overhead is low. No huge financial burdens to employ. Drive right in, set up camp and begin prospecting for gold.

~ Property is remote / secluded. Has great access from pavement to large comfortable flat riverside campsite. Exclusive year-round prospecting opportunities on apprx. 3/4-mile of historically proven gold-rich waterway. Property doesn't freeze in winter months.

~ Property is intimate & comfortable - not too large or impersonal. Doesn't have super deep murky water or under currents that can be dangerous. The Salmon River watershed is clean, completely undammed & unpolluted, with its drainage coming from high upon the summits rather than through large towns & farmlands. Ideal for someone who is looking for a large area to prospect for gold in this well proven gold-rich region.

~ Located in the ancient river channel in the heart of a past historical hydraulic operation that blew enormous amounts of gold-rich material directly into this receiving area. This property's massive low-pressure river gravel bars are situated directly downriver from the confluence of the historically rich North and South Fork Salmon Rivers. This is where all of the gold traveling downriver from both rivers flows to, where the accumulative gold values should be staggering.
Any major storms should always be draining rich new high-grade material to this property. The claim should be carrying pretty heavy values.

~ Property is large enough to accommodate multiple gold-finding operations at the same time. Small-scale gold prospecting opportunities are abundant. This is an outstanding dredging property. Samples ave.1/4-1oz. Au p/d / 1 person / no rock mover / 5" dredge. Overburden pays handsomely. Once on bedrock, there's great potential for gold values to be tremendously rich. A property this large offers many different options. It's large enough for a couple of families to enjoy, split in two; sell one parcel & keep the other, lease half of the entire property, etc..

~Work the property for immediate returns &/or hold as a speculative investment opportunity in the event of patenting being reinstated &/or the price of gold going higher.
The possibility for good gold recovery is excellent.  Offers great promise in the discovery of significant quantities of gold.

Each property we offer for sale is situated in gold bearing land in a region where placer and lode mining operations have recovered (and documented) millions of dollars worth of gold.  

In most cases our mining claims will pay for themselves over and over again for decades to come.  A past customer recovered approximately one-half of his purchase price in less than two weeks (of dredging) on his mining claim, & he moved less than 30-linear feet of streambed.  He has approximately 1,290-ft. left to mine (in the river), let alone prospecting any high bench material for placer, pockets, sources / lodes, overall.

This is pocket gold country, where very large gold specimens have been discovered. Natural gold traps in this region have the potential to contain incredible cache's of gold.

Conservatively speaking, our river placer properties should contain thousands of ounces of fine gold within their boundaries as well as untold amounts of big fat flakes, jewelry-sized pickers, and very large chunky-sized specimen gold nuggets. Persistent panning should produce an approx. pennyweight of gold per day using nothing more than a few basic hand tools. Any serious highbanking operation should result in the recovery of a minimum of 2-5 pennyweight a day, (1/8-1/4 oz.). Based on what we have recovered here and on several adjacent claims, any hard worker with a 5-in. dredge should result in a minimum recovery of 1/4 oz. to an ounce of gold per day. This does not include hitting into rich paystreaks, finding specimen gold nuggets, locating gold-filled seams or cracks in bedrock or the abundance of richness that can be found on bedrock, or finding pockets / sources of gold. These are incredible values at today's prices, to say nothing of future bullish gold price speculations.
Currently there is a moratorium on dredging that is in ongoing litigation that is subject to change in the future,


Excellent. This extremely rare gold property has highly favorable prospects for finding lots of high-grade gold. Provides exclusive anytime-of-year prospecting opportunities in the ancient river channel with apprx. 3/4-mile of a historically proven gold-rich waterway and bench material above. Gold nuggets up to several ounces are very common in this area. Property should contain rich gold values.
