Claim Map and Location Notice

The Eyese 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 10:60. The downriver boundary is located around half-mile down river from the upper boundary near mile marker 10:05. Look for a small un-named creek entering the west side of the river (see map).

This is another very beautiful 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. The Eyese Top Mine adjoins the upstream boundary of this claim, and the downriver boundary adjoins the Lost Gold Bar Mine. This breakdown can be seen on the overview map.

There is good RV camping in a road-side pull-off alongside Highway 96, with old foot trails which can be seen extending down towards the river. There is also a wonderful secluded, shaded camping area near the downriver boundary of the claim. A small dirt berm separates this camping area from and old miner’s camp, and a nice trail down towards the river.

Eyese Bar (this claim takes in the downstream portion of the bar) is just one more high-bankers’ paradise in this section of the Klamath River! There are visible stream-bends and rapids along the claim. These provide the type of diversity that should produce rich high-grade gold deposits for suction dredgers, high-bankers and electronic 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 up and down river (“Eyese Top” & “Lost Gold Bar”) are also being sold in this auction. Please see overview map.
