Try your hand finding gold in a famous gold placer location, the Tule Canyon! Famous for its richness in gold and silver and substantial remaining reserves, Tule Canyon has never been fully worked despite a hundred years of history! Tule Canyon has been the object of envy for many miners, and now, the opportunity to claim lies in your hands!

This product encompasses two claims, the original Tule Canyon claims (80 acres) and an expansion (+80 acres) into a larger basin further South.

The site has been thoroughly dry-washed, but wet-washing and chemical/organosulfur leeches have not been recorded in its history. Some have attempted to wet-wash the area, but the lack of a good water supply has stopped most folks.

Average of 16ft of black sands and gravels to bedrock over a wide expanse.

Area is still very rich and relatively unexplored: Directly to the South of the claim, fellow prospectors at Silver Range Resources working in Tule Canyon found grab samples yielding upwards of 37.3g/t of gold in the early Spring of 2023, with the average running 18.5g/t of gold. Further, extremely high levels of silver can be found: highs of 5,090g/t of silver in some spots, with 1,370.8g/t on average. The gold is coarse and is often found in its quartz matrix.

The site has been sampled for its potential as a lode claim but never advanced past exploration; several sunken shafts exist on claim. Gold, silver, columbite, fluorite, monazite, rutile, uranium, zircon, and rare earth materials like euxenite and xenotime can be found.

Nearby, you'll find the still-standing history of the One-Eyed Preacher and his immaculate cabin. Taken care of by local residents, stop by and camp under its roof for a night or two!

GPS Location: 37.36217, -117.53397
