Free Gold Claims consist of a 40 acre placer and two 18 acre lodes that
overlap most of the placer. The claims are located on the northwestern
slopes of the Harquahala Mountains about 5 miles from highway 60 and
the small town of Wenden, Arizona in La Paz County.
The claims are situated in the SE 1/4 of the SW 1/4 of Section 11,
Township 5 N., Range 12 W., Gila & Salt River Base & Meridian.
The AMC # for the 40 acre placer Free Gold is 405331, Free Gold-A lode
is AMC # 405535 and Free Gold-B is AMC # 405536.
These claims are part of the old San Marcos Mine workings and the area
is saturated with old mine workings, trenches, pits and shafts. A
recent rock chip sample taken from a mine dump returned over 1.5 ounces per ton.
About a half cubic yard of black sand bearing sand and gravel taken
from a small wash and processed through a dry washer returned fines and
flakes and the sample was taken above bedrock. We feel if one were to
use a dry-vac and get down to bedrock and clean out the cracks and
crevices the return would be much better.
These claims offer one the opportunity to mine both placer and hardrock materials.
Asking price for these THREE mining claims is $10,700.00
