Claim 4-Sale: Kenai Peninsula

My mining claim "Sunshine #1, ADL663915, on East Fork Creek, Kenai Peninsula, is for sale.

http://dnr.alaska.gov/projects/las/Case_Abstract.cfm?FileType=ADL&FileNumber=663915&LandFlag=y

This is a 40-acre State of Alaska placer claim, located just off the Seward Highway, about midway between Anchorage and Seward at milepost 57. It is on East Fork Creek, about a half-mile downstream of the tributary of Gulch Creek. This area is well known for "nuggety" gold. Excellent access, one of the best I have seen. (has both a driveway, and a campsite, with plenty of room for 2 or 3 vehicles, even a motorhome) The campsite is pretty much level, and there is abundant dead spruce for firewood. It is about an hour and 15 minutes drive from Anchorage. The claim corners are clearly marked, and all paperwork is up to date and current.
There is quite a bit of nice gold scattered throughout the overburden, even in the top layers. (no doubt due to the turbulent fast water during spring breakup) Scenery is breath taking...like something out of the National Geographic magazine.
I am willing to split this up among more than one buyer. (keep it to a reasonable number please). In other words, if you can find some of your friends to pitch in, the cost to each of you drops proportionately. You'll each own an equal share...and have equal mining rights...fairly simple.
$2500. If I still have it on Aug 1, I'll drop the price...we'll see what happens first. PM me for details or questions. (pics are from on claim, including some of the gold)

Aloha Marshall, just a pipedream but about your claim, is it basically a dredger's claim? Can you highbank too or rules prevent that? Any luck metal detecting the claim?

Been going to Steve's Moore Creek but since he might be selling the place, looking for alternatives.

Thanks, Gaine (kamikaze1a)

Re: Claim 4-Sale: Kenai Peninsula

Hi Guys

Yes, it's a dredging claim, and/or a pick/shovel/sluicebox type claim. I haven't tried using a detector there, but that may be worth looking into, I just haven't had the time. I don't know what the rules are regarding highbanking, but that might be feasable later in the season when the water level drops. Right now all the gravel is basically under water, in a bedrock canyon. Shallowest water at the moment about 6" to a foot. Deepest: about 10'
Last fall we were in there with just a shovel, mini-sluice and pan, and got a good showing of surface gold...that's when I found out it is scattered throughout the overburden. Here's a pic of the hole we made then.

Ok guys...just got off the phone. Sale is pending, just awaiting payment via snail mail. If for some strange reason the deal should fall through, I'll post an update and let you know here.

Thank you,
Marshall

$2500 is very reasonable compared to what other claims have been selling for not far away. Should have no problem selling, Bob

If you follow the ADL link he posted you'll see that it changed ownership already. Good guess is that Marshall sold it.
