Rich Creek Canyon

This is one of the most exciting Creek Gold Claims that we have ever seen! It is absolutely beautiful and serene. There is a very high percentage of Gold Ore all over this neck of the woods and you will be chomping at the bit to get out there. It is in a very historical area and has easy access to the property. It is located in Chaffee County in the Chalk Creek Mining District just outside of a small quaint Gold Mining town. It is in a very close proximity to the famous Mary Murphey Gold Mine, the largest gold producer in Chaffee County and one of the largest producers in the state. 

We had one of our clients Gold assayed from just up this creek and it proved to be 11.5 oz/ton!!!

Chaffee County:
