The East Fork Turnkey Gold mine is a rare find. The mine is in operation now and comes complete with living quartes and equipment. It is located in the Nansen Mountain area, North of Whitehorse, west of Carmacks, Yukon, Canada.
The claims and campsite are located 6 miles from the BYG hard rock mine site in a permafrost area. Access is by a government Maintained road for 62 km out of Carmacks, the final 10 km maintained by the miner. The overlying material is glacial till, with two to four feet of black muck, six to eight feet of gravel over six or more feet of gold bearing clay. Most of the gold is found in the clay under the gravels. Pay materials range from $10 to $15 at $800/oz. Annual claim renew fee is $10.00 per claim per year.
The owners hold 40 claims and 1 lease (equal to 10 claims). The size of each claim is 500 by 2000 feet. There are 5 claims of virgin ground on East Fork and 10 claims of virgin Ground on Nankeen Creek. Nansen Creek has one additional gold bearing Stream coming into the claims with 1 lease (10 claims). Experience shows the ground has been rich in these claim sites where there is a confluence of streams. The old timers had mined the overlying gravel in this area but did not mine the underlying clays, which have proved to be quite mineable.
This area has provided a good living and sufficient returns to upgrade and maintain the equipment. The mining equipment is efficient and in good condition and can be used to make this an ongoing turnkey operation.
Licenses for mining in place. This fuel-efficient operation is run by 2 persons using one 250 kW gen. set that runs a Trommel & Feeder & 6" Flit pump. Material is fed by a 6 yard loader.
There is great expansion potential here. The present owner goes into camp in late March for maintenance and leaves late September, actually mining 3-4 months.
The equipment and number of claims would make this operation ideal for a 5 or 6 men operation.
If you have been looking for a turnkey gold mine at a great price then you owe it to yourself to take a close look at this one. The owner is asking $1,180,000 USD for everything.
