Overview The Chloride North Face #2 placer claim is a 20.00 acre unpatented mining claim located outside of the historically gold rich area of Chloride New Mexico. This claim features extremely course gold with large chunky flakes and nuggets found frequently via metal detector in the deep bedrock crevices.
Chloride creek runs thru the claim however this is only during storm related activities, the rest of the year the creek is dry. Chloride canyon itself is extremely narrow with high walls and many bends that make an excellent location to concentrate gold.
Fine sand gravel bars exist in numerous places around the claim that were found to be carrying fine gold. The best gold came from the bedrock crevices; bedrock on the claim is fully exposed on some areas of the claim and the remainder of the bedrock has light overburden.
This claim is perfectly suited to a buyer who enjoys metal detecting and crevicing. Drywashing can also be done on the claim as well.
History The area is best known for the apache vein of mineralization on which three very successful underground mines operated by the Empire Mining and Metals company in the early 1900's. The apache vein has been traced on a Northwest / Southeast strike less than 1,500 feet from the Chloride North Face #2 claim. This close proximity to a major gold source is the reason why the claim produces extra chunky large gold.
Access Access to the claim is via a short dirt Forest Service RD from the Town of Chloride. 2WD pickup truck/suv accessible.
