The Clear Creek Placers lie up a canyon that was once home to several thriving mining towns which are now ghost towns.

The area is well documented historically for Placer and Lode Gold and Silver. In 1859, a large placer deposit was discovered on Cache Creek, a tributary of the Arkansas near Granite on the Lake/Chaffee County Line.

A year later in 1860 in the California Gulch, near Leadville, another very large and historically well known gold placer was found.

The Cache Creek site parallels these claims.

One of the listed claims covers a large part of what was once a booming Silver Mine and Town. The shaft, tailings pile, and buildings still remain. Rock samples from here confirm that it is highly mineralized.

The area has many Patented mines as well which further speaks to the potential of these claims. Each year the spring runoff rearranges thousands of yards of "mountain gravels" and this process brings an ever new array of values to the stream which runs through the center of every claim.

Dredging and or Highbanking is the most efficient way to work the stream and her gravels, but a small portable crusher and shaker table could be productive as well.

The owner is asking $4,500 for each claim. If you would like information contact us right away.
