Access / Accommodations  

Extremely rich material. Basically, the property sits within the richest 1/3 of the 12-mile stretch of the North Fork of the Salmon River; the beginnings of the really good stuff. This claim is loaded with gold.

The Lost Jewel is on a huge low-pressure river bar where pounds of gold could be possible for the finding. Nuggets up to several ounces are very common along this river system. Multi-pound seasons are not uncommon.The property is situated less than 1-mile downriver from the Sawyers Bar dredge-fields, a past historic hydraulic operation that blew enormous amounts of gold-rich material downriver to / through this property. The property's location is also less than 3 miles downriver from 3 of the richest gulches on this river; Eddy Gulch, Whites Gulch, Jackass Gulch; 3 rich gulches that should always be feeding large amounts of gold downstream to this property & getting hung up on this low-pressure river bar. Any major storms should always be draining rich new high-grade material to this property. The claim should be carrying pretty heavy values. 

This property is remote & terrifically scenic,. It provides exclusive anytime-of-year prospecting opportunities on a historically proven gold-rich river and surrounding bench material above.

4WD is not necessary to access the property. It has rare access from pavement to its grounds & the river.

This river is very friendly. It isn't deep or murky or with 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. It provides wide-ranging opportunity anytime-of-year for enjoying. The property doesn't freeze in winter months.

Casual recreational gold-finding methods are abundant. The property is large enough to accommodate multiple gold-finding operations at the same time on both sides of the river.

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 town of Etna is apprx. 28 miles to the NE where fuel, groceries, RV parks, cafe's, and other accommodations are easily accessible / plentiful.


Enjoy finding gold by use of many casual methods.
You don't have to dive to the depths of the river to find good paying quantities of gold. Great gold can be found high & dry above the river.

Crevicing logical gold traps & panning that material down can reveal loads of big fat flakes, fines, & chunky gold nuggets. Sniping around rocks can be very rewarding. Flakes, fines & nice sized nuggets can get lodged in low-pressure areas in the river & all along the river banks. Detectors can be fun to use all along the river banks & on the high benches above. This is pocket gold country! Look for signs for "bagging and tagging" up to the source.  Wherever there is a gulch or any water that is cutting through the land, these water sources are known to cut through orebodies / unearth, and carry lots of gold. 

This extremely rare gold property has highly favorable prospects for finding lots of high-grade gold. The property is less than a few thousand feet downriver from two past historic hydraulic operations that brought massive amounts of gold-carrying material downriver to / through this property.  It's loaded with gold traps that can build over time into enormous cache's of gold.  Any major storms should always be draining rich new high-grade material to this property. The claim should be carrying pretty heavy values. Nuggets up to several ounces are very common in this area. Findings indicate high platinum values along this river as well. Testing over time has shown excellent values. This is a property where you should see good gold in your riffles at every cleanup, not just specks of color. 

Gold Is Money!  Enjoy employing multiple gold-finding operations any time of year.


The richness of this region and the gold recovered is documented in multiple County, State, and Federal reports and documents. This is a select opportunity to own an outstanding gold property situated in one of the most renowned gold rich regions in America.

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) billions 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.
Currently there's a moratorium on dredging that is in ongoing litigation, In all probability this property is just getting values continue to accumulate,

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 pockets 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 an average recovery of 1/4 - 1oz.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.


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.

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.

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 1/2 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
