Overview

Featuring two creeks, old workings and excellent gold the 20.00 acre Brown Grizzly Project #1 placer claim is a ready to be picked up where the old time miners left off.  

Located in the well documented coarse gold bearing Lincoln Gulch drainage the claim had great 2WD access and camping onsite.

This area is prime for metal detecting and dredging/high banking.  With lots of exposed gravel, a large amount of Quartz and many tailings piles the potential for good gold is excellent.
