THE ONLY THING FOR SALE IN THIS AUCTION IS A 40 ACRE UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM!!! *~THE NUGGET YOU SEE IN THE PICTURE IS NOT FOR SALE BY US!~* THERE ARE MANY THINGS DETAILED IN THIS LISTING WHICH ARE RELATIVE TO THE VALUE OF THE MINING CLAIM FOR SALE, MUCH AS A FIVE STAR GOLF COURSE IS RELATIVE TO THE VALUE OF A HOME FOR SALE IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD. THE MAINTENANCE FEES FOR THE 2016 FEE PERIOD HAVE BEEN PAID AND THIS CLAIM IS CURRENT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2016. Here are pictures of the Location Notices for this mining claim for sale in this listing: **************************************** ~~~~ YOU SHOULD READ THIS BEFORE YOU BID!!! ~~~~The entire purchase price of this 40 acre claim is $10,000.00 (with NO additional hidden costs, fees, or surcharges some other mining claim sellers are getting away with for whatever reason). We are offering this claim on an interest free payment plan. The payment plan is as follows: A down payment of $1,750.00. Thirty-three (33) monthly payments of $250.00 starting the month after the down payment. You will also be paying the yearly maintenance fee, currently $310.00, while on the payment plan. If the BLM increases the maintenance fees for mining claims, then you will pay that increased amount. You will pay that amount to us, and we will pay it to the BLM. The payment plan will be outlined in a contract that will be signed by you and by ourselves. You will be able to prospect and mine on the claim as long as payments are current. Anything you find will be yours. If you become more than 2 months behind on your claim payments, it becomes our option to cancel the contract and resell the claim. If, for any reason, the contract is canceled (by us for non payment, or by you), any monies paid up to that point will be forfiet. We will be fair, of course, depending on how many payments have been made and the level of communication by you. Once your claim is paid in full, we will transfer ownership to you via Quit Claim Deed at no added expense to you. Once the claim is transferred to you, you will be responsible for paying the yearly maintenance fees directly to BLM. We will provide you with instructions for that. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Last year you were saying to yourself I cant afford a good mining claim. Now, you cant NOT afford a good mining claim - if you DONT LIKE STANDING IN SOUP LINES, that is! Especially since it is offered with payment terms! This is one of THE MINING CLAIMS that kept the Thompsons, Williams, Hastings and many other families out of the SOUP LINES and GOVERNMENT WORK PROGRAMS during the GREAT DEPRESSION, and it can DO THE SAME FOR YOU during the GREATER DEPRESSION into which WE ARE NOW HEADED!!! I know, because many of these families were still living on their mining claims on the Trilby, LSD, and San Domingo gold fields when I showed up on the scene 38 years ago this last November. You could not dent the mineral reserves of this claim in 5 lifetimes of working by hand. Got GUNS? Good! Got AMMO? Good! Got FOOD STORED? Good! Got ALL OTHER SURVIVAL SUPPLIES? Spectacular! Got GOLD? No? Then YOU NEED THIS MINING CLAIM! Got a good BUG-OUT AREA? No? Then YOU NEED THIS MINING CLAIM! ********************************************************************In todays unstable markets, investment in a long term gold source makes good sense. This listing has more than the usual amount of information and pictures. If your computer times out while uploading the pictures, just click on refresh and it will continue to upload the pictures. If you take the time to do this and view all the information and pictures, you wont regret it. You will also be fully informed before making a decision on this purchase. Thanks for looking! The I.M.F. and the world bank have been keeping the price of gold artificially suppressed for over two decades by selling worthless paper gold derivatives. However, the game will soon be up, and future world events will contribute to circumstances that will drive the price of gold up where it should be in relation to all other economic indicators, in spite of their efforts!!!!! According to research, we are one of the original, and quite possibly, THE original claim seller on eBay, making the rest Johnnies-Come-Lately. Such has always been the case with 6 generations of my familys mining history in Arizona. One family member would make a big strike through hard work, and suddenly thousands would descend on him to jump on his bandwagon. Therefore our knowledge of the area and Customer Service is unrivaled and unmatched in many regards. Many mistakes made by other sellers are simply made out of ignorance, and not out of intent to defraud. Some of the more impressive ones include (3) 160 acre claims bought for the price of one of our 40 acre claims. The happy customer set up camp and began operations. Shortly thereafter, a heavily armed rancher showed up and ran them off!! It turned out that the claims were on private land patented under the Stock Raising and Homestead act. A local would have known that, but not the carpet baggers who filed and sold those claims. Another incident happened in California where a claim was sold along a beautiful creek with tall pine trees. Sure there was enough flour gold to keep a person just getting started happy until they saw better elsewhere, but one day some heavily armed officers showed up to evict them. IT turns out that the entire creek was road corridor, and the tiny sliver of useless cliff on the claim, that was actually open to mineral entry was invalid due to the fact that the location was in the corridor. The unhappy new owners were charged with trespass and heavily fined. They now have a criminal record for their trouble. I could write a large volume on these type of incidents which have occured in the last three years alone, since people who have absolutely no knowledge of Mining Law decided to jump on the Claim Sales Bandwagon. We dont hide our bidder ids by making our auctions private, or our feedback. Our bidding process is completely transparent so that you know we are not having strawmen shill bid our claims up. We also dont post bogus questions from seller to make it appear an unrelated third party is libeling a competitor. We guarantee that this claim has gold! It has actually been tested! We guarantee that this claim has been fully and legally staked , located, and filed with both the BLM and the proper county recorders office, on BLM land open to mineral entry! WE ALSO GUARANTEE THAT THE GOLD ON THIS CLAIM WAS PUT THERE BY MOTHER NATURE, AND WAS NOT JUST SALTED BY A CON MAN IN ONE SMALL AREA IN ORDER TO SELL YOU A WORTHLESS CLAIM!!! YOU MIGHT FIND THIS GUARANTEE PLAGARISED IN OTHER LISTINGS, BUT IT WONT BE THE ORIGINAL GUARANTEE BACKED BY THE 5TH AND 6TH GENERATION NATIVE ARIZONA MINING BRANCH OF THE BIGELOW FAMILY!! We are established sellers and physical business owners with extensive references, great feedback, and have been at our Arizona location since 1969. We are not Carpetbaggers who just fell off the turnip wagon, and decided to jump into mining claim sales with only a minimal knowledge of mining law, and mining in general. We are 5th and 6th generation native Arizona miners who mine what we sell and sell what we mine. We dont mine the miners, we earn our sustenence by the sweat of our brow and the blood of our veins. The pictures below are NOT taken on the claim listed for sale, but are a montage of our many mining projects. MORE ABOUT WHO I AM I am a Certified Operating Engineer who travels extensively in pursuit of technically / physically challenging and financially rewarding projects in remote Arctic and or Maritime environments related to Highway / Infrastructure and or Mining Construction.I am usually working south of the Brooks Range or in the Yukon in the summer months, and in Arizona or the Arctic in the winter months.As a result, transfer of mining claims may take longer than normal, and I may not always be available for claims consulting.I no longer need money from mining claim sales, it is now something I do as a hobby in the rare times when I am between major projects. The small amount I now charge for claims just helps defray expenses incurred.It usually takes more than a few weeks to find, test, document, stake, and file a claim legally. If you are just a paper hanger, it only takes a couple of hours to throw down a few corners and a paper in a jar.At the price I am currently selling claims, I am clearing $400 to $500 per week. In the Arctic, I make 7 times that. So I am obviously not just a full time paper hanger looking for a quick buck. I do it for fun, and to help folks have a shot at a real claim for an affordable price. Plus I get to meet some real nice people from time to time.Anyway, here are some pics from my work in Alaska. This mining claim has been filed with both the BLM and county recorders office, and we have actually been out to the mining claim and tested it. It has not just been drawn in on a map and sent in to BLM without ever having been visited. It is also not being offered for sale before even being filed with the BLM! Make sure to ask for an AMC (serial) number for any mining claim before you decide to bid!! They shouldnt be for sale if they havent even been filed yet! The San Domingo lode and placer belt where the mining claim for sale in this auction is located is not just near (as in 90 miles west in the bleak barren big horn or harquahala mountains, or in the micron gold mountains around Wickieup or Bagdad where one has to have an electron microscope to see the gold, if there even is any, or old Iron mines passed off as gold mines near Lake Havasu and Parker, or on forest land in the Bradshaws where the only thing you can use is a gold pan, or on the flour gold flats below the picked clean and mined out placers of Stanton, Octave, and Rich Hill in general), It is within a rifle shot of where these nuggets have been found!!! Just look up any website related to Arizona gold nuggets (type in search words San Domingo, Little San Domingo, and LSD [which is the commonly used acronym for Little San Domingo] ), and while you will find dozens of pictures of monster nuggets found in the San Domingo and Little San Domingo watershed, you will find little mention, if any, of the big horn mountains, harquahala mountains, harcuvar mountains, buckskin mountains, or any of the other previously mentioned areas. I have prospected those areas for 30 years, and never found anything over a pinpoint speck!!! Most of those areas are bleak, barren, 40 miles from water, and two feet from hades. While its true that there are cheaper and bigger claims to be had, it is also true that an old, broken down, rusted out semi rig with questionable title can be had much cheaper than a Top Condition Hummer H2. In other words, you get what you pay for. There was one guy who bought four of those 160 acre claims on ebay from another seller, because he thought they were such a good deal. Three months later, after a lot of hard work, and only finding a little bit of color in areas originally pointed out to him by the seller, and none anywhere else on the entire SIX HUNDRED AND FORTY ACRES, he called me up and asked if I would be interested in trading 3 of those 160 acre claims that he had purchased on ebay from someone else for one of my 40 acre claims that I had listed on ebay at that time. I politely declined. I recently helped out another person who has become a Family Friend. He puchased a 160 acre claim near Wenden, went and worked it hard for an entire week, and came out with less than a cup of black sand. He demanded his money back, and purchased one of our 40 acre claims. He has been out to visit the claim he purchased from us and went home a very happy man. Moral of the stories folks, 160 acres of nothing is nothing. And 640 acres of nothing is still nothing, even if you got the entire 640 acres for half the price of my 40 acres. Use your noodle, why were these massive tracts of land sitting around with no claims on them until these boys showed up?! I know of very few, if any, 160 acre claims sold in the last couple of years by competitors on which a mining entity could not successfully contest Title to Mineral, and easily win in Civil Court. Luckily for the new owners, real mining companies have no interest in the areas these 160 acre claims are placed in. Many of these 160 acre mining claims have been bought and sold 6 and 7 times on ebay due to the fact that the owner who purchased it from the original locator was unhappy with it, and decided to relist it on ebay, rather than trying to get their money back. Then the next tinhorn shows up and repeats the process, and so on. In many cases, they are passing along a worthless piece of paper, as Due Diligence was never originally performed to perfect Title to Mineral prior to Original Transfer. If anyone wants to know what Im talking about, spend a few years cracking Mineral Law books!!! Now, why dont we sell mass amounts of 160 acre mining claims? #1, we dont mass stake, file, and sell claims regardless of mineral content , or lack thereof. As most viable gold mineralization is already staked, we usually have to wait around until one of the Old Timers passes to the Goldfields in the Sky, or purchase them from the current owners. #2. As studied in Mineral Law as I am, I feel that on a 160 acre mining claim, even if every concievable Due Diligence to Perfect Title to Mineral has been performed, said Title to Mineral is at best scetchy, and it would be a disservice to our loyal customers to sell them a 160 acre claim! The pictures below of mineral and ore specimens are not material brought in and dropped on the ground by a con man to fool a greenhorn, these are specimens which are in place in veins obviously put there by Mother Nature. Having summarily dispensed with said alleged pedigrees, I shall now expound on mine own, in extremely condensed fashion. I am a fifth generation NATIVE ARIZONA MINER who risks his life DEEP IN THE EARTH to bring you the FINEST MINERALS IN THE WORLD!!! I have been tracking down legends of lost mines in Arizona since TIME before TIME when COPPER was KING, Phoenix was small, and MEN were LEGENDS IN THEIR OWN TIME!!! As a kid, I prowled the tunnels and shafts of North Mountain, under what is now THE POINT AT TAPATIO CLIFFS. In later years, I spent many hours deep in the bowels of Sunset Mountain at 83rd Ave. and Pinnacle Peak Rd., in Phoenix, AZ. Collecting fine GOLD MATRIX SPECIMENS!!! These mines are all blown shut, and $500,000 homes built over them. A large in-ground pool sits atop the entrance to the old Glory Hole at Sunset Mountain!! All my life I have criss-crossed every square mile of Arizona, trying to preserve some of its precious treasures for future generations before it all falls prey to the developers bulldozers at the current rate of AN ACRE AN HOUR!!!! I remember by the time I was ten, I fancied myself a world class miner! Id hear dad busting firewood at 4:30 in the morning, and Id force myself out of the cozy, broken down camp trailer. Dad would get the fire going, put the grate on, dump the coffee grounds in the pot, fill it with water, and set it on the fire. Every morning, shaking and chattering as I thawed, listening to the pop of the embers in the fire, Id turn to dad and say you figure Im old enough to drink coffee, Pa? And every morning hed say give it a bit, boy. On this particular morning, we were off to do some surveying and install some claim posts to expand the property on a new part of the strike Dad had found. We woke the Womenfolk (mom and my two sisters) up before we left and strapped on our canteens and tool packs. Dad hoisted a bundle of claim posts over his shoulder, I struggled to hoist a pick and shovel over mine, and we were off! I remember Dads long stride, and as I closely followed him through the cholla cactus forest I tried in vain to match his step, attempting to place my small feet in his huge boot prints. I remember looking at his broad, powerful back, and thinking, Im gonna be like him, yeah, ya know Im gonna be like him! And suddenly here I am 28 years later, two buckets of ore in my hands, and my own kids trailing eagerly behind, each with a rock of their own to carry, trying to match my stride. I notice, and a smile crosses my face, a tear of remembrance moistens the corner of my eye and I think, Im just like him. And so, through the course of destiny I now bring you the exclusive premier offering of one of the finest mining properties currently in my possession, and the legendary story of my ongoing association with it, beginning back in the Winter of 72! Youre sitting by a warmly glowing, softly crackling campfire in my mining camp, relaxing after a hard days labor. The sweet smell of wood smoke permeates the cool night air, the crickets are chirping, the frogs singing down by the creek. Off in the distance down the canyon, a whippoorwill is lamenting, poor will, poor will!, and you hear the loud cough of a mountain lion on the cliff far above as he tries in vain to rid his nostrils of the burning scent of humans! Your hand instinctively edges nearer the Buck Knife on your belt, even though you know he is probably more afraid of you than you are of him. The moon has set, and the Milky Way is spread out above you in blazing glory; Draco, Asia minor, the North Star, and Mars are so close, you can almost touch them. You lean back and look up, drinking in the glorious beauty of it all. Now your attention is drawn back to camp by the Great Horned Owl who always roosts near camp in the Giant Mesquite, knowing that the field mice and Kangaroo rats will come out to scout for dinner scraps after you have gone to bed. But for now, he patiently and plaintively wants to know who?. Click here to hear the owl asking who?. I break the long, meditative silence between us; I will now tell you the story of a lost legendary mine! This is one that I have been hearing about, reading about, and looking for for Twelve Long Years. The Legend has it that there was a ridge of strange looking Brown and Orange rock near the top of the Hieroglyphic mountains. It goes on to say that a young Yaqui-Apache warrior camped near this ridge on his Vision Quest. He used some of these stones for his fire ring, built a large fire with long burning ironwood, and then slipped into a trance, brought on purposely by exhaustion and hunger. During this trance, he was greeted by his personal Totem Animal Spirit (these are kept secret) who said he was to become a wealthy chieftain. When he awoke with the setting of the next sun, he stirred the ashes to check for live coals, and saw with astonishment that the rocks of his fire ring had wept gold during his vision! He scooped these up and ran many miles back to his village, where he fell ill for several days. Upon returning to this area, he could not relocate the ledge. Another version of the same legend said that there were signs of digging in the area, and that the young warrior had found a strange hat made of metal. This hat description is strangely reminiscent of the helmets worn by the Peraltas during their Gold seeking expeditions in the 1500s in the Southwest and Mexico. This lode is said to have been rediscovered during the Great Depression, and mined secretly until the Partners were called off to World War Two, where they were killed in battle, never to return. The story was told in later years by their widows who had only a vague idea of where the mine was. The location given was several miles north of Rattle Snake Lils stage stop at Browns Well on the 1880s Wickenburg-to-Phoenix stage trail, which would put you directly in the San Domingo watershed, where a FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLAR NUGGET containing ONE and ONE HALF POUNDS of PURE GOLD was found a couple of winters ago with a metal detector just three inches below the surface by a retired winter visitor from Colorado!!!! **************************************************************************** THIS IS A COPY OF THE STORY THAT APPEARED IN THE WICKENBURG SUN ABOUT THE NUGGET FIND REPRINTED HERE WITH THEIR PERMISSION (all names and identifying information has been removed to protect the identities of those involved at their request): Thars gold around Wickenburg, neighbor! By Phillip Swift, Staff Writer .................. a winter visitor with a metal detector, found a specimen in red quartz a while back containing 1.47 (troy) pounds of gold. (He) brought the specimen, with a value he estimated between $15,000-50,000 depending on who you talk to, into the Wickenburg Sun office last week. The location of his big find was southeast of town in an area he described as Red Pichacho, near the Santa Domingo Wash area. I found it in a small wash, not more than two feet wide, about three inches underground.................. Anybody with a metal detector could have found it, he added. The specimen (reddish quartz rock) itself weighs 847 grams, of which 549 grams are gold. (He) has a number of photographs he has taken of the valuable icon. He said he is still uncertain about what he is going to do with it, although the probability is he will sell it to the highest bidder. Meanwhile, I¹ll keep it in a safe deposit box, he said, grinning. **************************************************************************** All of the locals know that the San Domingo(quoted in the newspaper article as Santa Domingo) mining district is heavily saturated with placer and lode gold in the vicinity of this claim!!!! This fact is well illustrated by the multitude of claimposts bristling from any available BLM land in the area. Most viable claims in Arizona are already staked and the rest are disappearing fast! Dont let anyone kid you, it takes thousands of hours to prospect and locate a viable claim that is actually currently open to mineral entry and is akin to your chances of hitting the lottery! However, your chances of being prosecuted for felony mineral tresspass and having search warrants served on your home are extremely high!!! This means that for every viable claim currently legally located by the novice, thousands of dollars in fuel, research, materials, etc. have been expended along with much frustration and meeting with dead ends. **************************************************** EXTRA!!! EXTRA!! READ ALL ABOUT IT!! Massive sixty-four ounce gold in quartz specimen found by Sasquatch in San Domingo Placer Belt!! This SPECTACULAR SPECIMEN was recently found by a Sasquatch, locally known as Ted Bigelow (me!), in the San Domingo Placer Belt!! Let me tell ya folks, once I find the vein THIS came from, I WONT BE SELLING ANY MORE OF THESE MINING CLAIMS ON EBAY! EVER!!! **************************************************** We want to be perfectly honest and clear on what you will be bidding on. This is an UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM. It is a claim on the MINERAL RIGHTS to the specified land. Dont let anyone fool you about unpatented mining claims. Although full ownership of the land this mining claim is on may become available to the claimant in the future through the patenting process (currently under moratorium), for now ownership of the land itself is retained by the Federal Government and managed by the BLM(Bureau of Land Management). Upon purchase and payment in full of this MINING CLAIM, we will quit claim our mining claim to you. You CAN camp on it for 14 days out of a 90 day period if you arent actively mining it, and if a plan of operation is aproved for active full scale mining and appropriate bond filed living quarters may be erected for management and crew (not a luxury home), must be approved by BLM, meet with zoning codes, and MUST be removed once operations have ceased. Once a mining operation has ceased, the land MUST be restored to satisfactory condition in order to reclaim your bond. ****FOR FURTHER CLARIFICATION PURPOSES**** BLMs current interpretation of the Letter of the Law is that you can only stay on your claim 14 days in a 90 day period. Any longer than that, and you must obtain (at the very least) an approved Notice of Intent or full Plan of Operation with approval of Occupancy and appropriate bond filed. The stark reality of the matter is that there are tens of thousands of people staying up to 6 months at a time on public lands who have no knowledge of minerals, metals or mining, and whose only purpose is to create as much destruction as possible by riding or driving all kinds of OHVs everywhere at wide open throttle. Ten of these can create more destruction in a month in one camp spot than a thousand miners can in a year. Yet BLM can not keep up with it, as they have tens of thousands of offenders, and only a couple of field agents. So it is your responsibility to keep up the appearance of your claim. ****Photograph and report any unauthorized and/or destructive use of BLM lands immediately, especially anyone caught abusing your claim.**** *>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>* >>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>* >>>>>* >>>>>* WE GUARANTEE THAT THIS CLAIM IS FULLY AND LEGALLY STAKED, POSTED, AND LOCATED, AND THE PAPERWORK IS UP TO DATE. WE FURTHER GUARANTEE THAT THIS IS NOT JUST A PAPER HUNG CLAIM. WE ALSO GUARANTEE THAT THE GOLD ON THIS CLAIM WAS PUT THERE BY MOTHER NATURE, AND WAS NOT JUST SALTED BY A CON MAN IN ONE SMALL AREA IN ORDER TO SELL YOU A WORTHLESS CLAIM!!! YOU MIGHT FIND THIS GUARANTEE PLAGARISED IN OTHER LISTINGS, BUT IT WONT BE THE ORIGINAL GUARANTEE BACKED BY THE 5TH AND 6TH GENERATION NATIVE ARIZONA MINING BRANCH OF THE BIGELOW FAMILY!! *>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>* >>>>>*>>>>>*>>>>>* >>>>>*>>>>>* Here is some additional information on UNPATENTED MINING CLAIMS that we hope will help. An unpatented mining claim is not a deeded property. Someone who owns an UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM owns the MINERAL RIGHTS on that particular parcel of land, NOT the land itself. The initial filing fees for the mining claim have already been paid by us. Upon purchase of the MINING CLAIM and payment in full, we will take care of the proper paperwork to transfer ownership to. We will fill the transfer papers out, have them notarized, and take them to the county recorders office. After recordation and receipt of the originals by us from the county recorders office they would be sent to you. The fees for transfering ownership with the BLM and the county recorders office will also be paid by us. When you own an UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM, you must file paperwork annually with the Bureau of Land Management to keep the mining claim current, or you will lose the mining claim. You can take care of the yearly paperwork without being here. There is a requirement of $155 per 20 acres claimed annual maintenance fee to be paid to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The 2016 maintenance fees have been paid by us, so the claim is up to date until Sept. 1st, 2016. If you own less than 10 mining claims nationwide, and have done $100 worth of work on the claim, you can file a Maintenance Fee Waiver Certificate, and an Affidavit of Performance of Annual Labor, and you will not have to pay the annual maintenance fee. If you are going to use this method, you will have to provide proof that you were actually out to the claim and did the assessment work. In order to be most secure in continued ownership of your Mining Claim, we strongly suggest paying the annual maintenance fee. Upon purchase of this claim, and payment in full, we will give you instructions on yearly paperwork filing. We will also send you extra papers for you to have on hand to fill out when the time comes. The claim has already been staked by us (a legal requirement to filing the claim in the first place), so you dont have to worry about that part of it. As far as the patenting goes, we are not sure when or IF you will be able to patent it. There is a current moratorium on patenting right now, but some people in the know have told us that things are looking favorably towards that being lifted sometime in the future with some changes to the process. Their opinion was that it has to be lifted sometime, and if we (or whomever owns the claim) hold on to the claim, then we would have a chance in the future to own the land outright. I dont know a whole lot about the patenting process, but have found some links to some good information on the subject. Unfortunately, eBay will not allow me to include those links as the sites I found also sells books on mining. The authors of the articles I found seem to think that the moratorium will be lifted soon, also. The moratorium goes up for reveiw every year. ****FOR FURTHER CLARIFICATION PURPOSES**** BLMs current interpretation of the Letter of the Law is that you can only stay on your claim 14 days in a 90 day period. Any longer than that, and you must obtain (at the very least) an approved Notice of Intent or full Plan of Operation with approval of Occupancy and appropriate bond filed. The stark reality of the matter is that there are tens of thousands of people staying up to 6 months at a time on public lands who have no knowledge of minerals, metals or mining, and whose only purpose is to create as much destruction as possible by riding or driving all kinds of OHVs everywhere at wide open throttle. Ten of these can create more destruction in a month in one camp spot than a thousand miners can in a year. Yet BLM can not keep up with it, as they have tens of thousands of offenders, and only a couple of field agents. So it is your responsibility to keep up the appearance of your claim. ****Photograph and report any unauthorized and/or destructive use of BLM lands immediately, especially anyone caught abusing your claim.**** I have also put together some general information on mining claims that I will include below. If you have any more questions at all, please feel free to contact us and ask. We will do our best to answer them. Here is the mining claim info: MINING CLAIMS AND SITES ~Anyone who is a citizen of the United States or has declared an intention tobecome a citizen may locate a mining claim. We have recently discovered that Citizens of Canada can also own United States Mining Claims. There is no limit on the number of claims and sites that may be held by a claimant. ~A mining claim is a particular parcel of Federal land, valuable for a specific mineral deposit or deposits. It is a parcel for which an individual has asserted a right of possession. The right is restricted to the extraction and development of a mineral deposit. The rights granted by a mining claim are valid against a challenge by the United States and other claimants only after the discovery of a valuable mineral deposit. There are two types of mining claims, lode and placer. ANNUAL MINING CLAIM FILING REQUIREMENTS ~The current assessment year begins on 12 noon September 1, through 12 noon September 1, of the following year. ~Every assessment year you must file either a Claim Maintnance Fee (payment) or a Maintenance FeeWaiver Certificate (Waiver in leu of payment of maitenance fee stating that you did at least $100 worth of assessment work on your claim that year). Whichever form you decide to use is due by September 1st of the current assessment year. Additionally, if you file a Maintenance FeeWaiver Certificate you must also file an Affidavit of Performance of Annual Labor. The Affidavit of Performance of Annual Labor is due by December 30. ~Claim Mainentance Fee payments must be made on or before September 1, for the next assessment year. These payments are made in advance of the current assessment year. The fee is $155 per 20 acres claimed. (You dont have to pay this fee if you do the required $100 worth of assessment work; read on for more info.) ~Maintenance FeeWaiver Certificates must be filed on or before September 1, for the current assessment year. Maintenance Fee Waiver Certificates are also filed in advance of the current assessment year. Maintenance Fee Waiver Certificates are not automatically granted. Service fees are not required when filing a Maintenance Fee Waiver Certificate. To qualify for a Maintenance Fee Waiver Certificate you shall meet the following conditions: ~~1. Hold or control no more than 10 mining claims, mill sites, or tunnel sites NATIONWIDE. ~~2. File Form 3830-2, Maintenance Fee Waiver Certification with BLM that includes name, address, and ORIGINAL signatures of all owners. Also list claim names and serial numbers. ~~3. Complete the assessment work for the current assessment year prior to September 1. A Waiver requested by September 1, for the next assessment year, necessitates filing an Affidavit of Performance of Annual Labor by December 30. The fee to file the Affidavit of Performance of Annual Labor is $10 per claim. (The assessment work consists of $100 worth of work done on the claim. The current rate of pay for the BLM is $20 per hour. Therefore you would simply have to work for 5 hours on your claim each year to qualify for the assessment work waiver. This could be road work, mining, or pretty much any improvement on the claim.) ~~Additionally, file an Affidavit of Performance of Annual Labor with the County Recorders Office where your claims are located.

NOTICE A memorandum of understanding (of which I recently became aware) between the Bureau of Land Management and the State of Arizona on Split Estate Lands wherein the Locatable Mineral Rights are retained by the Federal Government, and the Surface Rights have been Conveyed to and administered by the State of Arizona, require a yearly Land Use Permit from the State of Arizona. This Permit is a very reasonable $20 per year. The benefit of this type of Split Estate claim is that other people have to obtain this permit to be in the area. This is unlike Bureau of LandManagement multiple use land in which people have a right to be on your claim for any use other than prospecting, as long as said use doesnot interfere with exercising of your mineral rights. THE MAINTENANCE FEES FOR THE 2016 FEE PERIOD HAVE BEEN PAID AND THIS CLAIM IS CURRENT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2016. Well, now that the up front formalities are done for the moment, I will get back to expounding expansively on the voluminous virtues of this val-hallah!!!! The placer gold claim offered here in this listing is a acre placer mining claim: Golden Goose #2; AMC437110. The claim is in Section 24, Township 7 North, Range 4 West. This claim is situated in the SW1/4 NE 1/4 SEC24 T7N R4W, Gila Salt River Base and Meridian, Arizona. It is approximately 5.5 miles Southeast of Wickenburg by way the crow flies, and 5.5 miles North of Morristown. This claim lies 3 miles South of the active Carson mine, 2 miles Northeast of the Hansen pit, and 1 mile Northeast of our Golden Dragon mine and 5.3 miles West of the Active Trilby Pit. This claim lies directly on a main portion of the major lode trend that has supplied a large portion of the placer gold in the legendary San Domingo and Little San Domingo (also known as LSD) placer strikes. It is also less than 1 mile from club claims where nuggets weighing up to 11 ounces have been found, and on the same alluvial flow where I have personally found nuggets up to 1/4 ounce. On one of Old Man Thompsons last trips out before he passed away (Easter of 1976), he showed me nuggets he obtained on an adjacent claim with a metal detector (a now prehistoric Fisher) that weighed up to 7 ounces. A rich area indeed. This claim is less than 1 mile upstream from a patented 40 acres containing Brill Dam. Brill Dam has been there since the late 1800s, and was originally constructed to work placer gold in the San Domingo Placer Belt. This claim is also 3 miles North of two extremely rich 40 acre patented gold placer claims where old man Goode made his fortune. This claim also lies Southwest of five lode claims patented in the very early 1900s (1903 to 1909), and just South of the famous patented Monarch Mine. Many patented claims are merely base metal patents. These are gold lode patents. There are 3 access routes to this claim, one of which can be accessed by a high clearance 2WD pickup or SUV. It has recently been brought to my attention that many claims being sold today are so rough, remote, and rugged as to be only accessible by helicopter, or a long hike involving some extreme climbing. The old 1880s Wickenburg to Phoenix Stage Line Road runs just East of this claim and the ruins of several of the old stage stops can still be seen along this route, along with numerous ruins of old miners cabins. The ruins of Martian Marys cabin are near this claim in the San Domingo(only someone who had been around as long as I would know who Martian Mary was, or that she even lived there). The Golden Goose #2 mining claim has been tested, and it is one of the better claims in the area. Highgraders take note, all of the claims in this and the surrounding sections are fully and legally staked, the assessment work and/or maintenance fees are up to date, and I or my customers own them all. These claims are clearly posted. You are not metal detecting for relics, as that is now illegal. You are not metal detecting for metorites, as those are now mineral within the claim boundary, and belong to the legal possesor of the mineral title. In other words, you have absolutely NO BUSINESS on these claims with metal detectors, or digging implements of any kind. I have discussed this matter with the Director of Mines and Mineral Resources of the State of Arizona, and the Attorneys thereof. They state that not only is it my right to run you off of the claim, if I see so much as a shovel, but that it is also my duty. Upon the first offense, the Sheriff will be summoned, an injunction filed in court, and an order of protection served which will prevent you from approaching within one quarter mile of any real property belonging to Red Spider Mining and Exploration. In other words, you will be blocked completely out of the San Domingo and Little San Domingo Placers. If you have any doubts as to whether you can be prosecuted for Felony Trespass on a mineral claim, you are more than welcome to check records in Yavapai County regarding prosecution of two suspects who were caught and photographed highgrading a customers claim with two dredges in full view of corner posts and location notices. These two gentlemen spent the night in jail, had search warrants served on their homes. If convicted, such a perpetrator could be fined, and sentenced to anger management classes, community service, and possibly jail time at the Judges discretion. It is much easier to join a club, or buy a claim like any normal law abiding citizen. If this were some 160 acre claim slapped down on a miniscule amount of microscopic flour gold, this notice would not be necessary. Other gemstones, lapidary rough, and salable mineral specimens to be found on the claim include agatized opal, picture jasper (most mines sell good quality picture jasper rough for 10 to 20 dollars a pound), chalcedony, zoisite, corundum, calcium carbonate, fluorescent minerals, Epidote, beautiful pegmatite associated gemstones such as Moonstone and Red sunstone that I have sold on eBay for over three dollars a carat (Thats OVER SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS PER POUND, and there are HUNDREDS OF POUNDS ON THE claim!!!); Ametrine, Bright green Rainbow Jade, Smoky Quartz, Harlequin Quartz, Tangerine Quartz, Lepidolite, Fuchsite, Chlorargyrite (Silver), Mica; rare Pegmatite minerals such as Lithium and associated minerals ; Gold and Silver minerals in Quartz, Black Schorl Tourmaline, Tourmalated Quartz,and REAL GEM HEMATITE (not the man made Hemalyke that is generally sold as real Hematite on eBay. If your Hematite has a choncoidal fracture, then it is the manmade Hemalyke, and not the far more rare natural Gem Hematite)! All a person would need to do to recover their buy it now price on this claim is simply gather, cut, cab, and sell a few pounds of any one of the varieties of gemstone found on this claim. After that, THE GOLD IS GRAVY!! As a matter of fact, almost any gemstone or mineral found on several hundred acres of the world famous San Domingo placer belt can be found on this claim. The coarsest most crystalline gold was formed in place on the claim from Epithermal, Hydrothermal, and Disseminated Load, the preponderence being disseminated zenachrys and phenochrys in porphery quartzite and basalt with schist lenses, and quartz veins in the contacts. During relatively recent volcanic activity, this original geological deposition was ground up in a pyroclastic flow, and re-deposited as conglomerate. Some of the gold was brought in by the San Domingo tertiary channels as well as the Trilby Wash tertiary channels. This claim is slightly downstrike from where 26.75 ounce, 11 ounce, 7 ounce, and 3 ounce nuggets were found over the last few winters. There are several good sized gullies on this claim in which the placer gold is replenished from alluvial pediments every year by winter and monsoon rains. There is a good amount of gravel on this claim that could be worked with quite some success with heavy equipment. The gold is also concentrated enough to be worked by hand and be worth your time. You wont have your mining restricted to 3 months out of the year, as there are no endangered fish or other aquatic wildlife here. Although this claim is not located in lush forest, it also is not buried under 6 feet of snow 9 months out of the year, and closed to access due to fire danger the other three months, you dont have to bring your own oxygen, you wont have to grow webbed feet and gills, and therefore this would make a wonderful winter escape for the snow/rain/flood/humidity weary miner or outdoor enthusiast, or would be sun worshiper. This claim contains some of the most beautiful desert and regal wildlife in the entire Southwest. I would say it is definitely Arizona Highways class scenery. The Golden Goose #2 claim is on the same strike as a claim group (Jubilation #1,2,and 3) we have held since 1974. To get an idea of how large of a parcel 40 acres is, find an extremely large open area, pack a lunch and plenty of water, and get ready to walk. A 6 ft tall person covers approximately 3 feet in a long stride or pace. Therefore, if you mark a beginning point and walk in one direction counting 440 of these long strides, you have traversed one side of a square 40 acre tract. Turn at a right angle and and count 440 more of these long strides. Then turn at a right angle once again, counting 440 more long strides. Then turn again at right angles and count 440 more long strides, returning to the point of origin. You have now traversed the approximate perimeter of a square 40 acre tract. In the test results pictured on this claim listing, I worked a total of 3 1/2 five gallon buckets of material from the listed claim. A good amount of coarse untraveled crystalline gold, and possibly platinum bearing hematite, barite, scheelite (tungsten silicate), corundum, and bismuth was found. Recent analysis of placer concentrates from a nearby placer operation we were permitting indicate substantial amounts of the rare earth elements Cerium and Lanthunum (these REES are contained in Monozite, which concentrate well with gold), as well as Cobalt, Copper, Gallium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Niobium, Tantalum, Strontium, Vanadium, Tungsten, Yttrium, and Zinc. Below are pictures of the gold that came from this testing. THIS GOLD came from THIS CLAIM, not just FROM THE AREA. All of the gold in the pictures below, came from JUST 3 1/2 five gallon BUCKETS OF DIRT!!!!! That means that there is possibly 11 1/2 times this amount in a yard of material from this claim. An impressive amount of gold found on a nearby claim during the new owners first 2 weeks on the claim. The most spectacular, grand, and rare horticultural specimens on earth reside nearby. Crested Saguaro(pronounced suh-WAR-oh), the result of a genetic mutation which only occurs in 1 in 150,000 Saguaros. This mutation results in a Crest on the top of the cactus that looks like the comb on a rooster. Some of these specimens are far more impressive than others. In 40 years of desert exploration, I have catalogued 12 of these specimens, and this one is by far the largest and most spectacular of them all. Although this specimen is easily worth $150,000.00, it belongs to the Public, is protected by the Federal Government, and theft or damage of this specimen is a felony. Any potential cactus rustlers reading this listing should take note that all of the above mentioned specimens have been implanted with microchips, and can be tracked by satellite. Extremely rare Crested Saguaros on nearby claims. These are the Mandatory basic tools of the trade: First picture, going from right to left: 1) A number two muckstick. A good miner can wear out a few dozen of these over several years. If you think you want to be a miner, have somebody hand you one of these. Your hand should instinctively grasp it firmly, and the shovel should begin to sing. Any hardened underground stiff knows what Im talking about (I have handed some people a shovel and seen their hand spring open and the shovel fall to the ground. This means they were not cut out for physical labor). After you have had a few years on the end of a muckstick, when you grab one, some song lyrics should automatically come to mind. I was born one mornin when the sun didnt shineI picked up my shovel and I walked to the mineI loaded 16 tons of number 9 coalAnd the straw boss said well, a-bless my soul.2) A small pick good for detail work. Also good for defense against Mountain Lion attacks if you cant get your Gat out fast enough.3) A full sized pick for roughing out material.4) A long thin blade standard screwdriver for scratching gold out of cracks in the bedrock.5 & 6) Loppers and pull saw (these are only needed if your mining rig is Purty and you wanna keep it that way. If you drive a Arizona rig, then the only thing these are good for is clearing the brush around your work area. This picture is of my standard shop vac. As you can see, it is 6 horsepower, and pulls 14 amps. Like Bob Villa on Home Improvement says: MORE POWER! These work twice as well as a gas vac and are only around 100 bucks at Home Depot. Only buy the Rigid brand. The Shop Vac brand wont hold up to this use. When you get your Rigid, take the filter off and put it in a box. Only bring it with you if you plan on vacuuming your rig once a week or so. This is the generator that I use to run the Rigid shop vac. They are available at Harbor Freight for around 400 bucks. They are very dependable and extremely quiet. Not to mention that they cost about 1000 bucks less than the name brand. This medium sized drywasher I purchased from Travis at Pro Gold in Youngtown, Az. I know the Prospecting store in Wickenburg is a bit closer to the claim, but the last time I was in there with a claim buyer who was looking for equipment, there was a bunch of rough looking fellas in camouflage who were joking scathingly about shooting up our claim signs that we were looking to purchase there. The clerk also took part in this banter. My customer was highly disturbed (being a retired Navy Seal who has seen his share of action) and left without saying anything. I have not been back since and can no longer recommend them. This is the leaf blower motor that I use to run my drywasher. They are available for around 80 bucks at most hardware stores. I use an RV sewer line for air transfer. Heavy guage extension cords are a must to run power from the generator to the vacuum. They also work well for discharging static buildup inside the vacuum. Buckets....You can never have enough buckets. Lush High Sonoran Desert Vegetation on the claim and in the area. The Herbal Kingdom imitates the Insect Kingdom as a Sundrop delicately spreads its new wings. Oenothera Primiveris of the Onagracea family (Bottle Evening Primrose, also known as a Sundrop) waste no time in taking advantage of a brief interlude in the 10 year drought. A carpet of wildflowers covers the claim each spring and early summer. Giant Saguaros guard the treasures on the claim. These stately sentinels have stood for many a century on this claim. Seasonal seep springs on the claim. Cassia flowers on the claim. Looking downstream from the claim area at San Domingo Peak, at the base of which is Brill Dam. Low lying areas, washes, gullies and depressions have been concentrating gold on the claim for thousands of years. Gold producing geological features are prominent and easily identifiable on the claim, and in the area. Fairy Dusters dance in the morning light. Quartz float found on the claim containing many native metallics. Looking West from the claim area at Red Picacho and White Picacho. Utility water is available in the winter months in Willow Spring Creek, which runs next to the claim. The roads on and around this claim are rough and rugged, and a 4WD is recommended. However, a seasoned desert rat like myself gets around in 2WD. The Easter Bunny on a scouting trip to the Wickenburg area claims. Shallow and Jagged bedrock on the claim makes for easy pickings for the prospector. Testing on the claim. Cleaning out the clay cracks in the bedrock is esential to finding good gold. The better you detail it, the more gold you get. This is gold piling up behind the riffles of the drywasher while testing on the claim. This is not the whole results of the test, but from running just 1/2 bucket of vacuumed material. The concentrates are so heavy that you have to clean out frequently, or you start losing gold. The gold that came from this testing. THIS GOLD came from THIS CLAIM, not just FROM THE AREA. All of the gold in the pictures below, came from JUST 3 1/2 five gallon BUCKETS OF DIRT!!!!! That means that there is possibly 11 1/2 times this amount in a yard of material from this claim. A nugget found in a crack in the bedrock during testing on the claim. Some of the local denizens in the area. I was 9 years old when I placed this corner post with my dad. My dad cut aircraft aluminum, drew in the letters and had me imprint them with a hammer and screwdriver. I asked him why, and he said Because it will be there when I am gone, and it will be there when you are gone. He went over the Divide a long time ago, and I am 50, so I guess he was right. There actually is gold at the end of this rainbow. Globe Mallow, one of the many useful herbs on the claim. The Staghorn Cholla opens its blooms to the Spring morning sun. A Phainopepla Nitens feasts on Desert Mistletoe berries in the spring. Remnants of Hurricane Paul roll across the desert. These are the late summer storms that are hard on the roads, but replenish the gold in the low lying areas. One of the many useful herbs in the Sonoran Desert, the Desert Hackberry produces in profusion. Old well on nearby patented property. Cabin site was in the area at the upper right of the first picture. These pictures were taken before the winter rains. I just checked this well a little while back, and the water table is still visible. There is a herd of Mule Deer that beds nearby during the day, and waters twice daily at a nearby Creek, along with the Quail, Dove, Cardinals, Sparrows, Thrushes, Hawks, Owls, Eagles, Rabbits, Raccoons, Badgers, Silver and Red Fox, Coyotes, Javalina, Bobcat, Burros, and the list goes on ad infinum. Local Residents, decendants of my ancestors ore haulers. FUN ON THE CLAIMS!!! We have many very happy customers who have purchased claims from us. Myron and Lena came out a while back for a trip to the claim they purchased from us. Myron is a seasoned prospector and went to a part of his claim that I hadnt been too impressed with in testing. I went out to visit him and see how he was doing, and what he had in his pan from a mornings work flat knocked my socks off! My testing had indicated that most of the coarse gold was on the North half of the claim, but the plunkers Myron found blew that theory away! One of Myrons glory holes. On the neighbors new claim, Pharaohs Tomb #1, that he purchased from us. I helped him get set up with his new equipment and we ran the drywasher for about an hour. Jerry was quite pleased with the coarse gold on the Pharaohs Tomb properties, as he is used to finding only flour gold while dredging in the rivers around Denver. A happy new claim owner, Jerry Jones, was headed for China after catching sight of the first nugget on his claim, Pharaohs Tomb # 1. (these pictures are included with his permission) Jerrys inspiration! The first nugget peeking out of the drywasher riffles. These nuggets also panned out of the drywasher concentrates after one hours digging on Jerrys new claim. Gary Olson and his friend Keith, both from Missouri finally made it down to work the Pharaohs Tomb #4, which Gary had purchased from us some time ago. The weather was great and we had a FANTASTIC time! The pictures of the gold in the pan is just SOME of what came out of 12 five gallon buckets half full. (All of these pictures are used with the permission of Gary Olson and Keith) The biggest nugget didnt even make it into the drywasher as Garys buddy spotted it the second he popped it out of a clay filled crevace in the bedrock with his screwdriver. It is quite an exquisite specimen 24K gold with a tiny quartz crystal inclusion on one end and a hematite / ozmiridium crystal inclusion in the other end. Hansons massive open pit mine downstream from the claim, below Thunder Canyon on the San Domingo by US60. Summer Monsoons roll into the Bradshaws to replenish the desert. A picture is worth a thousand words! Dawn of another glorious Arizona day! The days begin and end in a blaze of glory in Arizona! Another famous Arizona sunset! Brill Dam, constructed in the 1880s, built of giant dark purple rhyolite blocks quarried on site, has long been one of my Secret Places where I have cooled my heels and healed my soul since I was a child. This dam is on patented land, immediately above the confluence of Willow Spring Creek and the San Domingo, on the San Domingo. Very few people know of this pristine paradise since it is well hidden even from ariel view by huge cottonwood and willow trees. Deep shafts and ore stockpiles can still be seen on an nearby claim, where they were abandoned at the beginning of World War 2. The pictures shown of mill equipment are of an antique hard rock mill on our nearby claim. I believe this mill began duty as a processing point for lucrative hard rock gold ore from surrounding claims, and was subsequently converted to a niobium/tantalum mill when high grade columbite was discovered nearby in 1967. Tantalum currently sells for $50 per oz., and some varieties of the columbite crystals from which Tantalum is extracted sell for thousands of dollars each!! Although this property contains gold, your prospecting options here will not be limited to those, for on the property, or within a short drive from this miners paradise are to be found more geological treasures than I have time or space to list, but list a brief sampling I shall. There are gem grade spessartine and grossular garnet, extremely rare columbite (tantalite/niobium) crystals in pegmatite with muscovite and crystalline quartz, travertine, serpentine, malachite, azurite, brochantite, ajoite, shattuckite, barite, beryl, bornite, calcite, fluorite, fluorescent minerals of mind boggling variety and intensity, gem silica chrysocolla, turquoise, crocoite, wulfentie, vanadinite, cuprite, diopside, dioptase, dumortierite, epidote, halite, hematite, hemihedrite, linarite, peridot, almost any form of quartz conceivable (magnificent red, black, pink and yellow crystals, scepter amethyst, smokey quartz, rose quartz, saganite, chalcedony, fortification agate, fire agate, petrified wood, and just recently, I found some giant purple rhyolite geodes with spectacular citrine crystals inside!!!!), rare earth, platinum, Apache tears, giant black schorl tourmaline crystals, monsterous beryl crystals, topaz, jasper, and the list goes on!!! Black sands in the area are very heavy and metallic containing gold, magnetite, hematite, zircon, garnet, nickel, chromium, titanium, tungsten, tantalum, noibium, trace platinates, etc., etc., ad infinum. A SMALL SAMPLING OF GEMSTONES WE HAVE MINED IN THE AREA (these are not from the claim and are not for sale). A SMALL SAMPLING OF GOLD NUGGETS PANNED FROM THE SAN DOMINGO.(not for sale). Gold from this region is of the finest purity and character. Flora and Fauna are unbelievably profuse in the area, with visitors ranging from the occasional mountain lion to the ever present and inquisitive Gambels Quail. This is a virtual open-air aviary with a plethora of peregrine and other falcon, many varieties of hawk, eagle and owl, scrub jays, the raucous blue jay, turkey vultures, crows, cardinal, finch, sparrow, robin, lark, wren, mourning dove, hummingbird, and the list goes on. A Hawk guards the memorial to Rattlesnake Lils son. He was killed in WWII and this memorial has stood since then with the locals help after Rattlesnake Lil died. Giant Turkey Vulture guarding her young. The Turkey Vulture takes powerful flight as I approach her nest. The mammals on and around the property are regal in size due to the plenitude of forage and water in the area. Boone and Crocket class mule deer come to water at the seasonal creek, as well as javelina, cotton tail, jack rabbit, squirrel, raccoon, mountain lion, bobcat, silver fox, coyote, and the occasional lobo wolf. In the evening the antics of the bats and nighthawks in pursuit of insects are quite comical. The rising of the full moon over the Bradshaws, seen through the forest of saguaros (some of whom were seedlings when this country was young) in this area, would bring goose bumps to the skin of the most aristocratic world traveler, jaded by repeated viewing of the most awe inspiring vistas on earth. In this area, in the spring and early summer, carpets of wild flowers and useful medicinal herbs in season are infinitely diverse in color and variety; a person could spend a lifetime learning the names and properties of them all. Jojoba bushes are one of the most useful herbs here providing a yearly bountiful crop of Jojoba beans, from which the elixer of life is extracted, and used to produce many of the widely used health care products available today. World class candies and jellies are made from the fruit of the Prickly Pear cactus, and the fruits, along with other cactus fruits, were a staple food for the Native Americans in the desert. The meat of the pad, if eaten raw, has been said to cure Diabetes in any form. This area is a true entomologists fantasy, with several hundred varieties of butterfly alone; a walk alone in a flight of millions of monarchs is an awestruck communing with Original Intelligence. The reptiles in the area are rather inquisitive. Reptile watching in this area is fabulous, with varieties ranging from smaller blue whiptail lizards and orange geckos up through larger horned lizards, collared lizards, spiny lizards, chuckwallas, desert iguanas (pictured below), all the way up to the rather large (to 24) Gila Monsters. Speaking of Gila Monsters, I recently came across a very large one sunning himself on some rocks. It is hard to tell from the pictures, but this guys (or girls) head was about the size of my fist! If you come across one of these out in the wild, stay back and take a few pictures, but DONT try to pick it up because it is poisonous and protected. Recently, during my frequent wanderings in this area, I came across an extremely rare find! A large female Desert Tortoise! In 39 years of desert wandering, this is only the 4th and by far the largest Ive ever seen. If you run across one of these quiet creatures, be very careful not to disturb it or any nest nearby, as they are very endangered. Take your pictures and leave it in peace. Well, it seems the grizzled old prospector has been caught prattling on about nothing again, and must return to the description of the claim offered here. This is a 40 acre unpatented mining claim, and although there is a current moratorium on patenting claims, it comes up for review each year. There is a 40 acre placer claim nearby to the east on hard caliche with very little flora and fauna. It was patented in 1994, and its current estimated value is around $10,000,000.00!!!! If you file your paperwork every year, you will be first in line to file patent on this claim if the moratorium is lifted. Unfortunately, you would be paying taxes on this property after that point in time. I am in no way guaranteeing that this is the way it will work for you. I am merely stating that this is the way it has worked for countless other private citizens and developers who have built golf courses, shopping centers, and resort homes over the tops of still rich mines. Which brings up another subject. Upon payment in full of this claim, we will take care of the transfer of ownership papers and file them for you at no extra charge. We will also give you instructions on yearly paperwork filing. This claim is fully and legally staked, posted, and located, and the paperwork is up to date. This claim is close to the exclusive world famous old west town of Wickenburg, Arizona, which has a corporate jet compatible/ state of the art airport, and world class golf course. Although this claim is not too far from multi million dollar homes with private airstrips and in house hangars with acres of prize horse housing, private arenas, tennis courts, and so on, it is also at the end of the line, the jumping off point for civilization, for it is quite near the Hells Gate and Castle Creek federal wilderness areas. So you can see, whether you are a hermit philosopher (like me!) looking for solitude and commune with nature, a corporate jet-setter, or anything in between, this claim is on the perfect multi use land for you!!! If you are an off road A.T.V. enthusiast, there are thousands of miles of pristine marked and mapped trails that could not be explored in a lifetime with a freighter of fuel! For the western horseman/person this is the fantasy of a lifetime, the views are spectacular, springs everywhere, and working ranches numerous. The hard core bass fishing/watersports enthusiast will be happy to know that there is world class bass tournament fishing with a well appointed resort marina 20 nautical miles to the east at the 14,000 surface acre Lake Pleasant on the Agua Fria River!!! The aeronautical enthusiast will be elated to find a state of the art sailport with extensive hanger facilities and world class thermals at Turf Soaring School and R.V. Park south of Lake Pleasant!!! This is also not a membership claim that has been picked over by thousands of other members, and you dont have to worry about somebody moving in on your glory hole in the afternoon when you quit for the day and cleaning out the 12 ounce pocket you left behind (this really happened on a membership claim!). We are established sellers and physical business owners with extensive references, great feedback, and have been at our Arizona location since 1969. We are not Carpetbaggers who just fell off the turnip wagon, and decided to jump into claim sales with only a minimal knowledge of mining law, and mining in general. We are 5th and 6th generation native Arizona miners who mine what we sell and sell what we mine. We dont mine the miners, we earn our sustenence by the sweat of our brow and the blood of our veins. It has come to my attention that there are many people these days claiming to have been in mining and/or in Arizona for Generations.In many cases this claimed pedigree is unwarranted (some of them actually bought their first claim from me).Here is a portion of my pedigree. We were not required to file claims with county recorders offices until after 1975, so here are records of my fathers, Melvin Bigleow (Bigelow Realty), and my grandfathers, Leland Bigelow, mining activity in 1975.Ask your seller to back up generational pedigree claims with similar evidence. IF they can not provide such, you probably have a Johnny Come Lately. WE GUARANTEE THAT THIS CLAIM IS FULLY AND LEGALLY STAKED, POSTED, AND LOCATED, AND THE PAPERWORK IS UP TO DATE. WE FURTHER GUARANTEE THAT THIS IS NOT JUST A PAPER HUNG CLAIM. WE ALSO GUARANTEE THAT THE GOLD ON THIS CLAIM WAS PUT THERE BY MOTHER NATURE, AND WAS NOT JUST SALTED BY A CON MAN IN ONE SMALL AREA IN ORDER TO SELL YOU A WORTHLESS CLAIM!!! YOU MIGHT FIND THIS GUARANTEE PLAGARISED IN OTHER LISTINGS, BUT IT WONT BE THE ORIGINAL GUARANTEE BACKED BY THE 5TH AND 6TH GENERATION NATIVE ARIZONA MINING BRANCH OF THE BIGELOW FAMILY!! This auction is for a acre CURRENTLY UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM. A MINING CLAIM by law is considered REAL and SALABLE PROPERTY in the STATE OF ARIZONA.

I am also including, in this listing, topo maps of the area to help you locate it in a general area. The red mark indicates the area of the claim. Due to extenuating circumstances, we have had to block bidders without Paypal accounts. If you do not have a Paypal account and are still interested in purchasing this claim through eBay, please contact us using the Ask a question form. You must be prepared to give us valid contact information, i.e. valid name, address, phone number. Thank you for your interest! This claim is also for sale on a different forum, so please contact us before buying to check for availability. I try to cancel the listing as fast as possible if it is sold on the other forum, but sometimes am not notified in time.

Pulling a lever or shuffling cards is much less work than pushing a shovel. Mining is HARD work. You will NOT be carrying a three pound coffee can full of gold from this mining claim after a few hours of lackadaisical scratching at the ground. You will NOT be taking home 3 ounces of gold a day without heavy equipment. What I WILL guarantee is that gold has been found on this property, and given my 20 years experience in mining geology, this property has excellent potential to be a good gold producer. **************************************** THE MAINTENANCE FEES FOR THE 2016 FEE PERIOD HAVE BEEN PAID AND THIS CLAIM IS CURRENT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2016.

THE ONLY THING FOR SALE IN THIS AUCTION IS A 40 ACRE UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM!!! *~THE NUGGET YOU SEE IN THE PICTURE IS NOT FOR SALE BY US!~* THERE ARE MANY THINGS DETAILED IN THIS LISTING WHICH ARE RELATIVE TO THE VALUE OF THE MINING CLAIM FOR SALE, MUCH AS A FIVE STAR GOLF COURSE IS RELATIVE TO THE VALUE OF A HOME FOR SALE IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD. ~~~~ YOU SHOULD READ THIS BEFORE YOU BID!!! ~~~~The entire purchase price of this 40 acre claim is $10,000.00 (with NO additional hidden costs, fees, or surcharges some other mining claim sellers are getting away with for whatever reason). We are offering this claim on an interest free payment plan. The payment plan is as follows: A down payment of $1,750.00. Thirty-three (33) monthly payments of $250.00 starting the month after the down payment. You will also be paying the yearly maintenance fee, currently $310.00, while on the payment plan. If the BLM increases the maintenance fees for mining claims, then you will pay that increased amount. You will pay that amount to us, and we will pay it to the BLM. The payment plan will be outlined in a contract that will be signed by you and by ourselves. You will be able to prospect and mine on the claim as long as payments are current. Anything you find will be yours. If you become more than 2 months behind on your claim payments, it becomes our option to cancel the contract and resell the claim. If, for any reason, the contract is canceled (by us for non payment, or by you), any monies paid up to that point will be forfiet. We will be fair, of course, depending on how many payments have been made and the level of communication by you. Once your claim is paid in full, we will transfer ownership to you via Quit Claim Deed at no added expense to you. Once the claim is transferred to you, you will be responsible for paying the yearly maintenance fees directly to BLM. We will provide you with instructions for that. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Last year you were saying to yourself I cant afford a good mining claim. Now, you cant NOT afford a good mining claim - if you DONT LIKE STANDING IN SOUP LINES, that is! Especially since it is offered with payment terms! This is one of THE MINING CLAIMS that kept the Thompsons, Williams, Hastings and many other families out of the SOUP LINES and GOVERNMENT WORK PROGRAMS during the GREAT DEPRESSION, and it can DO THE SAME FOR YOU during the GREATER DEPRESSION into which WE ARE NOW HEADED!!! I know, because many of these families were still living on their mining claims on the Trilby, LSD, and San Domingo gold fields when I showed up on the scene 38 years ago this last November. You could not dent the mineral reserves of this claim in 5 lifetimes of working by hand. Got GUNS? Good! Got AMMO? Good! Got FOOD STORED? Good! Got ALL OTHER SURVIVAL SUPPLIES? Spectacular! Got GOLD? No? Then YOU NEED THIS MINING CLAIM! Got a good BUG-OUT AREA? No? Then YOU NEED THIS MINING CLAIM! THE MAINTENANCE FEES FOR THE 2016 FEE PERIOD HAVE BEEN PAID AND THIS CLAIM IS CURRENT UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2016. **************************************** And now for clairfication purposes: for those of you looking to GET RICH QUICK, please take your hard earned money down to the local casino where you can spend the asking price for this mining claim in a matter of a few hours with nothing to show for it.
