Gold claims for sale are now available online. These are pieces of land that have the potential to produce gold. This gold may either be underground or in flowing water streams. In the early days, gold prospectors staked these mining claims and settled in the United States. Today, these claims can be acquired just as any other property can be. Depending on the size of the claim, these parcels can be divided into 3 categories- lode, Placer and millsite (production leases). Any gold claims for sale will have to be validated. For this, the mines will have to be partly developed by the claimant. Testing may be conducted to provide some insight as to determine what type of work may be conducted there. |
This is a way of proving that the mineral actually exists in the land parcel. Once the land has been developed, the prospector will claim the ownership deed for the land and the payment will be made accordingly. At this point of time, the mining properties for sale and any related claims can be developed further, sold or may be left that way. The important thing is that the ownership has to be documented and valid. There are numerous gold claims for sale.
Millsite mining claims are usually smaller than undeveloped placer and lode (hardrock) claims. These may cover an area as small as 5 acres. This kind of claim is unique in that it is primarily used in processing ore into lucrative minerals and precious metals. The miner has to have a steady ore-supply in order to operate a profitable millsite. Some miners also work with other claimants and bring in some additional ore to that millsite claim and pay a certain fee for it. Lode mining claims are much larger than the millsite claims and can measure upto hundreds of thousands of acres.
In most cases they have a concentration of gold deposits deep under the surface of the earth. Miners have the right only to dig within the periphery of this claim. The one benefit of this claim is that miners can dig deep into the ground. Theoretically, they have the right to dig as deep as they choose to, in this kind of mine. The boundaries are exclusive of the depth of the mine. Placer mines are entirely different. These are more reminiscent of the kind of mines seen in the gold rush of the mid 1800’s. This type of claim will usually have a water body running through it, though some may be comprised of dry hillside materials.
This could be either a stream or a river and miners can pan for the gold in the area even as it gets sloughed-off the rocks by the current of the water. Placer mines in Canada will vary in size, from 20 hectares to several hundred or more. Since the pieces of land are so vast, the miners can work in different areas and find the most viable areas to focus their efforts. No matter which mining properties for saleyou zero-in on, the important thing is to buy them from a reliable source. You much ensure that the title to the land is clear and that there are no legal issues attached to it.
