Located in the Rio Grande National Forest the Colorado Bedrock Gold 001 Unpatented Placer Claim is 20.66 acres of easily accessible yet remote mining claim.
Featuring two shaft mines and 3 large dozer trench cuts cut into the surrounding hillsides in search of the main vein structures. The mine produced mainly silver with secondary metals of gold, lead, copper, and iron. The dozer cut trenches are the deepest I have seen thus far with a depth of 20-25' in the deepest spots. As such the materials cut out of the trenches and brought up from the shaft mines has left large piles of dirt/ore scattered across the claim.
Camping is allowed on the claim for up to 14 days continuous per month and the camping area is located directly creekside in the center of the claim. Good cell phone reception is .25 miles away from the claim on a very large and open saddle.
Access to the claim is via highway 114 and then a dirt Forest Service Road system. The dirt roads are 2WD passable with standard pickup truck/suv ground clearance levels. You can drive directly into the claim without issues.
With no thru access the claim has minimal traffic and has largely been sheltered for years by the high elevation, short mining season, and lack of continuous loop road infrastructure.
The Ford Creek/Bonita Hill area was primarily developed for its lode gold and silver sources. With no evidence of large scale placer mining on the claim it's safe to assume that the creek has never been worked on a large scale and probably only intermittently with hand fed sluice box and gold pans. The lode mines are extensive with numerous adits, shafts, and trenches dug and developed upstream and on all side of this placer claim.
The lode mines were so rich that a small prospectors tent/cabin boom town sprung up close to this placer claim called Spook Hollow, old remnants of the town are still visible to this day.
