Two 20 acre placer claims for sale in the famous Spring Valley District. This area was mapped and explored by Barrick and is considered a world class gold deposit. Currently the area is nearly all claimed up by Clover Nevada, a large Nevada gold mining company.
Less than 10% of Nevada's mining claims are placer. It's rare to find a placer claim available, and even more rare to find one in a high quality gold district like Spring Valley.
Spring Valley has both placer and lode deposits. The Hart and SLI claims have several quartz stringers which are believed to carry gold. The area, specifically the same section as these claims are in have extensive exploration and one of the reports prepared for Barrick Gold is provided below.
There is extensive big company interest in this area. In the below maps the blue dots represent active mining claims held by Clover Nevada. A previous joint venture between Midway and Barrick gold did extensive sampling and drilling (nearly 800 drill holes) in these same sections. The aerial view shows extensive tailings to the east of these claims and the Bonanza King lode mine is less than one mile away.
Access to these claims is easy. Take Exit 119 off of I-80 and drive the Lovelock - Unionville road directly to the Hart claim. Current owners have used a backhoe and trommel for mining, and have even used a 4" dredge on the property.
