Overview
Located on the past gold producing Lottis Creek the Union Park Gold 006 Placer Claim is both easily accessible, remote, and ready to be dredged for gold!
 
The claim features a year round flowing stream capable of floating a 4 inch size dredge on the creek all season long.  Numerous side channels and eddy systems have helped to divert portions of the stream away from the fast flowing main channel creating ideal slack water areas and numerous sharp bends in turns in the stream for gold to be concentrated.

Dredging
The Union Park Gold 006 Placer Claim is one of the few claims in my inventory that have to constant water flow and stream width necessary to float a larger dredge.  A 2" to 4" dredge is recommended for this claim dependent upon the clients goals, number of dredgers, and timeline.
Any volume of dredging with an intake over 2" in size or continuous occupation of the claim for the dredging season will require a Plan Of Operations. 
Gunnison Gold Prospecting Company offers two free hours of consulting with every mining claim purchase and a discounted hourly rate to help submit any permits you may need.
The claim is situated right next to a Forest Service Road that makes access easy with SUV/Truck.  Additionally, the creek is just a short distance from the road.
Camping
Dispersed Camping is allowed on the claim for up to 14 continuous days.
History
Upstream from the claim lies numerous small hard rock mines and prospects that were developed in the late 1800's chasing Quartz vein structures within the Sawatch Quartzsite. These mines and supporting geologic formations are believed to be the source of the alluvial gold found on the claim.
