Featured Claim - The Rusty Pick, 20 acre placer claim in Sierra County, California

North Fork of the Yuba River

Click for Additional Information

Some say the North Fork of the Yuba River is the best gold river in the country. Thousands of ounces of gold have been recovered from this river over the years and it still produces great gold. A 106lb nugget was found just upstream at the Kentucky Mine, you can read about the big nugget here. The big rivers in California will replenish with gold each flood, and the Yuba is one of these big rivers. Of the three forks of the Yuba - the North, Middle and South Fork, the North Fork is the most sought after. With super easy access, a wide river and shallow bedrock this is a dream claim. If, as some are saying, dredging will be legal in California in 2019, then this claim would be one of the best to own. It's location, upstream from Ladies Canyon, means its one of the few on the Yuba which can be worked year around under the new regulations. With ample gold replenishment, good bedrock, and favorable regulations this would be an awesome claim for you, or for an association of owners. This claim is right next to the road and has off highway parking for up to six vehicles near the center of the claim. Don't miss out on this one.

Is that gold real?

Yup. Most of it we got ourselves either from our placer or lode claims, but to be honest over the past few years we've been focusing more on lode than placer. There's something very gratifying about digging gold out of solid rock. In both California and Nevada there are thousands of these abandoned mines and they're yours for the picking. Not every lode mine requires a lot of work, some of them are nothing more than a quartz vein where you just dig the rock out, crush it and pick out the gold. All the gold below we either found, or someone we know found it. It's real, and there's a lot more out there.
