Located in the Gunnison Nation Forest within the Tincup Mining District. T he Red Buck Project 001 & 002 Lode Claims are located over an old miners head far mwith mine shaft that in its heyday was 100 feet deep.  Add in numerous hand dug pits and tenches throughout the claim plus high quality gold bearing vein structures striking N/NE thru the claim.

A well timbered mine shaft was sunk directly none of the major red buck gold bearing veins.  This area was a past producer of gold, silver, iron, and small amounts of copper.  Assays for these claims were both high grade and consistent.


Dispersed camping is not allowed on the claim.  There are numerous dispersed camping sites located within a 4 mile radius of the claim that are perfect for setting up a large base camp with numerous fifth wheel trailers.  Camping may be permitted under a Plan Of Operations permit (POO) if the scale of the mining operations warrants continuous occupancy of the claim and if approved as part of your mining plan that is in direct support of your mining operation.


The turn off to the claim is located off of the main Forest Service RD equal distance between the Taylor Trading Post and the town of Tincup Colorado.  From the turnoff the claim is located approximately 1.5 miles.  The last .25 miles into the claim has a trail width restriction of 48 inches currently.


The Red Buck Project claims are located within a region known for quality gold bearing geology.  Mining efforts in this area took place from 1890 to the early 1940's.  The gold bearing vein structures found on the claim consist of quartz dominated reefs and highly oxidized sulfide based ore bodies.  The head frame is fairly well preserved for sitting out in the extreme elements of the Tincup area for 100 years.  Department of Reclamation grated the main shaft in 2017 due to the depth of the shaft.  This can be re-opened with a NOI or POO permit if needed.
