DIRECTIONS TO YOUR CLAIM - From Redding, drive north on I-5 to exit 707 (Delta Rd). Take a left and go west on Dog Creek road up the mountain for 9.6 miles where you will veer left onto a small dirt road (its about a 1/10 of a mile before the big switch back (See map) Follow this smaller dirt road 0.8 miles to arrive at the claim. There is a wide pull off that works as a turn around as well as camp. There is a game trail that leads you down into the gully. There was some wet spots when i was there in September, even at the driest time of the year, so i expect more water in wetter times.
Shasta County is loaded with gold, and this is a nice 20 acre section of it that you would have exclusive mining rights to. Most vehicles can get to the claim. There is a few miles of dirt road but 4wd is not needed. The road dead ends just past the claim, so you can park and camp at the big flat open spot overlooking the creek. From parking, there is a gently sloped game trail down to the water. Very peaceful and quiet area. Nice getaway spot. Very few people. Creek is small but I still saw water during the drought so it should be year round. You could get most Rvs here, as long as they have good clearance.
Its in a great hunting area, and would make a great hunting camp, as well as for prospecting or just camping and getting away for awhile. This claim is high enough to get some snow in winter but be much cooler and nice during the hot summer.
The city of Redding is about 55 minutes away.
There is about 1500 feet of Upper Dog Creek on the claim. This is "Dogs Life," now make yourself an excuse to get out there and enjoy the outdoors.
Here's what the winning bidder will receive...
1) Paperwork to help you register the claim directly into your name for next year, and directions to renew the claim to keep it active for future years.
2) Which will give you Exclusive placer mineral rights to this gold claim.

AN "UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM" MEANS YOU OWN THE "MINERAL RIGHTS" TO THE LAND AND NOT THE LAND ITSELF. THE LAND ITSELF, IS STILL OWNED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
ALL PAPERWORK IS PREPARED AND READY TO FILE WITH THE CALIFORNIA BLM. WE WILL BE PUTTING IT DIRECTLY INTO YOUR NAME. YOU WILL HAVE A STAMPED, ACTIVE CLAIM REGISTERED WITH BLM SHORTLY AFTER PURCHASE.
YOU ARE ALLOWED TO PROSPECT THE SURFACE MATERIAL OF YOUR CLAIM INCLUDING PANNING, SLUICING, DRY WASHING, METAL DETECTING, AND ROCK HOUNDING FOR ALL PRECIOUS METALS AND MINERALS (NOT JUST GOLD).
AS WITH ALL UNPATENTED MINING CLAIMS ON FOREST SERVICE LAND, YOU MUST FILE A "PLAN OF OPERATION" FOR ANY EXTENSIVE MINING OPERATIONS BEYOND CASUAL PROSPECTING WITH THE U.S. FOREST SERVICE.
YOU MAY NOT SELL "SAND AND GRAVEL" FROM YOUR CLAIM, ONLY PRECIOUS METALS AND MINERALS. CHECK WITH THE BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT IF IN DOUBT.
YOU MAY NOT BUILD A PERSONAL RESIDENCE OF ANY KIND.
YOU CANNOT (AT THIS TIME)"PATENT" THIS, OR ANY UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM. WHICH MEANS, YOU CANNOT PURCHASE THE LAND FROM THE GOVERNMENT FOR RESIDENTIAL USE. MINING CLAIM "PATENTS" HAVE NOT BEEN GRANTED SINCE 1992, AND WILL TAKE AN ACT OF CONGRESS TO DO SO AGAIN.
YOU MAY CAMP ON YOUR CLAIM FOR TWO WEEKS IF NOT PROSPECTING, AND YOU MAY CAMP VIRTUALLY AS LONG AS YOU WANT IF YOU ARE ACTIVELY PROSPECTING. ALWAYS CHECK WITH BLM ABOUT EXTENDED CAMPING RELATED TO PROSPECTING. YOU CAN ALSO RECREATE, HUNT, QUAD, SWIM, HORSEBACK RIDE AND DO ANY ACTIVITY BESIDES PROSPECT.
ONCE A PLACER CLAIM IS STAKED AND FILED WITH THE PROPER AGENCIES, IT MUST BE MAINTAINED ON AN ANNUAL BASIS. PROOF THAT IT IS PROPERLY MAINTAINED MUST BE FILED WITH THE APPROPRIATE COUNTY, AND STATE OFFICE OF THE BLM ON OR BEFORE 12 NOON, SEPTEMBER 1ST OF EACH YEAR.
MINING CLAIMS ARE CONSIDERED "REAL PROPERTY" AND AS SUCH, CAN BE SOLD, LEASED, AND TRANSFERRED TO FAMILY MEMBERS. AS LONG AS YOU COMPLETE YOUR PAPERWORK AND PAY YOUR YEARLY FEES ON TIME, YOUR MINING CLAIM CANNOT BE TAKEN FROM YOU.
THE OWNER OF AN UNPATENTED MINING CLAIM MAY either, pay the annual $165.00 yearly maintenance fee or, perform a minimum of $100 worth of annual labor or improvements (EXAMPLE: Road improvement, clearing overgrown vegetation from access road, trash removal, etc....) on each claim by filing a Small Miners Waiver. You may file this waiver if you own 10 claims or less nationwide. (Check with the BLM for that fee amount.)
CURRENTLY THE YEARLY MAINTENANCE FEE FOR A 20 ACRE MINING CLAIM TO THE BLM IS $165.
