The Texas Creek #2 Placer Claim features 700 feet of actively flowing stream. The water flow is extremely consistent during the Spring - Fall seasons. The water volume upon survey was large enough volume to run a dredge. There are two small creek bends within the claim afford excellent opportunities for gold to settle.
Outside of the flowing creek rests large cobbles to large boulders with unique cracks and dry placer benches which would be perfect for metal detecting. The Western Creek side of the claim is extremely steep and really channels the flowing creek to be deep and a very short way to bedrock. In some places the bedrock is completely exposed within large boulders.
Upon initial survey the best gold was found directly within the tightly packed deep bedrock crevices.
The gold found on the claim is primarily fine flour gold as most of the geological precious metals deposition occurs from Glacial till and fans. Small nuggets have been found on Texas Creek in the past but the primary gold size is fine gold to small flakes. Large amounts of pyrite, mica, and black sands were found during initial testing as well, don't mistake mica & pyrite for Gold!
Easy 2WD access off of two way publicly paved road approximately 3 miles from the Taylor Trading post. Camping area is accessed via short dirt road within the center of the claim. heading NE thru the claim approximately following the creek.
Camping is allowed just to the South of claim for up to 14 contiguous days. ATV and hiking trails can be picked up directly from the claim. The camping area is large enough to accommodate large fifth wheels just a short distance from the creek.
