Peters Creek/Canyon Creek (Hatcher Pass) - Alaska Mining Claims, just 6 miles downstream from the famous Independence Mine in Hatcher Pass. Located in the Willow Mining district. Alaska State Claims #543119 and #543121 are adjacent to one another at the intersection of Peters Creek and Canyon Creek (on the eastern branch of the Talkeetna Mountains). Due to location and difficulty of access, these claims have remained virtually untouched by any major mining operations. The claims can be accessed by ATV in the summer and by Snowmobile in the winter. Since purchasing the claims in 2013, the owner has spent most all manhours working Claim #543121. Dredging Peters Creek and high banking its step banks has produced favorable gold amounts. Also, a former owner (in writing to his daughter) wrote, that he was finding lots of fine gold and match head sized nuggets at 12 feet on the claims. Less work was done on Claim #543119. But, in 2018, a prospecting tour of the claim located an old glacial waterfall which when panned, showed a great possibility for a large gold deposit nearby. Seller lives in the lower 48 states and has found it difficult to find adequate time to properly prospect and mine the claims on a consistent basis. Seller is asking $9,500 for each claim or $18,000 for both. If interested and want specifics, email Craig @ CKalpin_CPIM@msn.com, and we will provide an informational fact sheet about the claims.
Birch Creek - My siblings and I have nine (9) State of Alaska mining claims (720 acres) for lease with the possibility of sale in the Circle Mining District on Birch Creek. The physical location is Fairbanks meridian, T007N, R010E, Sections 26-28. ADL numbers 623131-623137 and 624102-624103. The claims are mostly unworked with a few exceptions. A small cut in the early 1980's, approximately 5,000 cubic yards, at the mouth of Willow Creek and a couple of small cuts mined in 2011 and 2012. The upper end of the claims had 2 holes drilled in the 1940’s along with a full line of drill holes between the upstream claim and Bear Creek. Other lines of holes were drilled further upstream. I have a copy of the drilling report. The claims are very easily accessible via the Steese Highway between MP 95 and MP 97. Bedrock is typically 7 – 9 feet deep in the floodplain, somewhat deeper on the benches. Gold averages 87%. Terms of the lease would be 15% (negotiable). If interested or have any questions please email Ray Lester Jr at email@example.com
Prospect Creek, Just South of Coldfoot - 320 Acres Federal Placer Claims for Sale. Located 6 hours north of Fairbanks AK and 30 miles south of Coldfoot, and about 4 miles east of the Dalton Highway. Milclay Creek runs through the SE corner of the claims with three tributary creeks. This is all new ground ready for mining. There is a reliable Drill Report from a mining operation just south of these claims. This report indicates a Paleo Channel between elevation of 1150 ft. and 1250 ft. There is also a “Remote Sensing Mineral Survey” available for these claims illustrating areas of gold deposit, geological formation and more. This is a great tool to use to assist in narrowing in on areas for exploration. We submitted a Plan of Operation (POO) for Exploration of the 320 acres. We will also help with developing the Plan of Operation (Mining) for the buyer. A buyer can conduct exploration with a deposit. Claim numbers AKFF097686, AKFF097684, AKFF097679, AKFF097680, AKFF097685, AKFF097683, AKFF097681, AKFF097682. Selling for $500,000 Terms available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
