Claim Map and Location Notice
The Lost Gold Bar Mine (on the Klamath River) is located about 31 miles downriver from Happy Camp. The upriver boundary is located near the Highway 96 mile marker 10:05. Look for a small un-named creek entering the west side of the river (see map). The downriver boundary is located about a quarter-mile downriver from the upper boundary, near mile marker 9:70.
This is an incredible claim! Originally, it was part of the Klamath Mineral Reserve property. But based upon the input from interested people, Klamath Mineral Reserve was broken down into multiple, smaller (less expensive) properties. This breakdown can be seen on the overview map. Lost Gold Bar Mine adjoins the downstream boundary of the Eyese Bar Mine
There is good, shaded RV camping in a road-side pull-off alongside Highway 96 near mile marker 9:98, with old foot trails which extend down towards the river.
There is also an old access road located near the downstream boundary of the claim which might be used by ATV’s.
There are lots of visible high-banker opportunities along this claim. Natural stream-bends and rapids along the claim provide the type of diversity that normally produce rich high-grade gold deposits for suction dredgers and surface prospectors. Old hydraulic tailing cuts are visible up the mountainside, proving that the Old-timers did well in the immediate area.
PROSPECTS: This mining property is located in a historically-rich section of the Klamath River. There were bench operations and hydraulic mines all along the river in the local area. Evidence of old bench work including, tail races and tailings piles, are visible.
There is exposed bedrock to be found along with in-place bench material that is being washed into the natural riffles within the river. This claim has lots of potential for high-banking, deep & shallow dredging, sluicing and metal detecting.
For anyone looking to extend the length of this claim, the adjoining claims located just upriver (“Klamath Mineral Reserve,” “Eyese Top,” & “Eyese Bar”) are also being sold in this auction. Please see overview map.
