The lucky well lode claim is a large shallow shaft mine with hand stacked tailings & ore piles.  This mine was shuttered prematurely during the war act.  The mine development took place on a high grade ore body.  This ore body produced primarily gold and silver with small amounts of lead and copper.  This mine would be a great starting mine for someone just getting their toes wet in the mining industry. 

The surface ore of approximately 120 to 150 tons contains of commercial grade ore that would be easy and low cost to process and would then fund the future development of the mine.

The main trench and shaft are cut directly on the swell of the main vein running thru the claim.  Further investigation of the trench yielded strong vein characteristics that would be a great place to extract high grade specimens still within the the ribs of the trench and deeper into the underlying vein.

The Chloride Mining District is known for pocket style high grade and silver deposits with a secondary deposition of highly disseminated low grade ore typically found in sulfides.  Silver chloride was very prevalent in the area and is what made the town of Chloride back in the 1800's.


 Located just outside the famous mining town of chloride, there is still plenty of gold to be found in these hills.

The Lucky Well Lode claim is one of many gold & silver lode claims located outside of the town of  Chloride, New Mexico.  Numerous larger publicly traded mining and exploration companies are actively developing ore bodies within a 12 mile radius of the claim.


Primarily andesite and basaltic andesite flows and associated volcaniclastic units.  Following the apache vein system that flows throughout the Chloride Creek mountains and valleys.  Veins trend on a NW strike and dip steeply.  Numerous Quartz veins and Quartz stock works are easily identified in addition to Sulfide based ores.

Due to the smaller high grade workings onsite, this claim is not suited for a large operator.  Rather the best client for this claim would be a small operator as the hand stacked ore piles can be picked thru and the high grade ore crusher with very small jaw crusher and hammer mill.  


Located less than 2 miles from the town of Chloride, New Mexico.  The claim is a straight shot from town via Wall Street RD.  High clearance 4WD or ATV is recommended as the road is maintained on a limited basis.



Camping is allowed on the claim for up to 14 continuous days
