A World-Class Gold Mining Property Listing
The Liberty Mines Group is immersed in a historically rich gold bearing trend, as stated and released by state and federal agencies, historians, geologists, scientists, and gold mining experts regarding this region. This collection is not only saturated with historic gold production, but surrounded on all sides by a multi-billion dollar gold deposit. It is our opinion that the Liberty Mines Group represents an incredible opportunity to recover mass quantities of gold within a proven trend which boasts a phenomenal record of gold production unlike any in the U.S..
The Liberty Gold Mining Properties are located in Siskiyou County, California, USA. The group spans an area running approximately four miles in width; east to west, and approximately two and one-half miles north to south on the north slope of the Salmon Mountains at an elevation range of 3,600 feet to 4,800 feet above mean sea level. The group is comprised of 21 properties in all – Approximately 2,900 combined acres in total. Approximately thirty mines are encompassed within this group, including The Madrone, Jumbo, Hickey, Cleaver, and Wilson mines. Approximately 20 shafts have been found overall, including numerous additional prospects. All properties surround and/or follow in a northeastern trend from the historically rich Eddy Gulch and Black Bear mines; the most noted and richest placer and lode mines in Siskiyou County. Accumulative past documented gold production figures within this immediate area is approximately $7.1 M, when gold was priced at $16-$20 per ounce, equating to billions at today's price.
Scientists and geologists have conducted many detailed studies of this region and have numerous reports concerning the mineral deposits and trends. For over 100 years, geologists have been reporting their finds concerning the gold deposit in the vicinity of Whites Gulch and Eddy Gulch. It has been stated multiple times that the deposit stretches for miles and is most likely much deeper than mining operations of past generations discovered.
The 1925 California State Mineralogist’s report states that the placer mines in the North Fork of the Salmon River from Sawyers Bar (Eddy Gulch) to Forks of Salmon, 12 miles down river, produced $25,000,000 in gold. Most of that production occurred when gold was about $12 per ounce, so it represents about 2 million ounces. Based on mine production, the Black Bear Mine and the lode mines across the head of Eddy Gulch are the greatest source of gold for this stretch of river. There is no evidence that the deposits in this area will stop yielding gold values with depth.

From Interstate 5 at Yreka, take Highway 3 for approximately 29 miles traveling southwest to the town of Etna. From Etna it’s another 25 miles continuing southwest, up and over the pass (Etna Pass) onto the North Fork of the Salmon River. While traveling along the North Fork, just before entering the town of Sawyers Bar, you will come to Whites Gulch Forest Service Road # 40N61 and Eddy Gulch Forest Service Road # 39N27. These all-weather gravel roads lead overall and throughout the Liberty Gold Mining Properties.
Streams provide year round running water adequate for mining and milling needs. The winters bring snow, but not more than can be easily removed.
Access routes within gold bearing areas which can support mining operations are typically a major concern for mining companies. There is a great amount of time and cost involved in creating access routes to operation sites. One of the very valuable assets of the Liberty Mines Group is the existence of an excellent network of roads. Another key benefit that must be considered is that these roads are expertly maintained by the National Forest Service and Siskiyou County. The existence of roads (and their maintenance program) is a key feature of the Liberty Mines Group, and one that increases not only the value of the collection, but the ability to recover the minerals with a higher margin of profit.
The 30 Gold Mines Within The Liberty Gold Mines Group view
The gold mines of Whites Gulch and Eddy Gulch recovered an estimated 1.2 million ounces of gold.
Today, that same gold would be valued at over 1.8 Billion Dollars

Development - Mining Potential
Similar to the Eddy Gulch Mines, the Black Bear Mine, the Uncle Sam Mine, and others in this region, the ore deposit throughout this district is mesothermal. This factor eliminates the problem of limited ore depths associated with epithermal and steeply dipping ore deposits. The old timers only mined down dip on ore bodies that broke surface. No attempt was made to systematically explore the huge vein areas further into the mountain. This large block of properties contains several past producing mines and hundreds of old prospects that were only modestly explored by the old timers. In essence, the surface deposits were all that were exploited leaving untold values at depth.
