Having been to Sedona in the past and loving our experience, we looked to locate claims there.
We were also motivated by a claim in this area where the family has owned and worked it since 1947.
Our claims are just outside the Sycamore Wilderness area and the beauty of our claim area is much like the beautiful rock formation landscapes around Sedona and the Wilderness Area.
There are extended washes on the claims in an area of several ponds, unique to the Arizona wilderness.
Our clams are in Yavapai County, being in the same county as the new TV gold prospecting show on The Discovery Channel, Dave Turins Lost Mine.
The Sedona Mago Resort is nearby.
Cool Village of Oak Creek is just 5 miles south of Sedona.
Within hiking distance is the Sedona Wetlands Preserve that attracts a large variety of birds where there is a parking area, restrooms, and picnic benches

I am a retired teacher, and got into prospecting as a hobby with my family.
I am 69 and my wife 66, and we have gained the experience to select the best areas to locate claims.
We feel we are selling more than the gold and gems on beautiful land.
You would be acquiring an experience that will give you a good feel for what the old time prospectors must have felt during the days of the original Arizona Gold Rush.

A mining claim is an affordable way to enjoy the beauty of the land combined with the adventure of panning for gold and searching for gems.

If within one year you are not satisfied with your claim, you can trade for another comparable claim, just paying the BLM and County transfer fees which will be about $125.

Claim buyer will also receive a new, free, Gold Panning Kit:
One 14 inch Gold Trap pan; One 10.5 inch Gravity Trap pan, One combination sifter/classifier with 7/16 of an inch exit holes, One Gold Guzzler snuffer bottle, One Tweezers/ Magnifying Glass combo tool, One booklet titled "How to Find Gold", and Two plastic bottles.

The washes on the claim are a great advantage for prospecting, especially when the summer rains run down the washes, then depositing gold flakes down from the mountains and rock formations, and which also exposes gem veins.

Owning a mining claim is having access to a lifetime of great family fun and recreation, in a very beautiful, natural setting: Arizona, is a great, scenic state, where the spirit of the old west still lives on.
Mining Claims are also a great investment, as claims go up in value over time, just as land does.
if you purchase a claim from us, at no charge, I would help you if you ever decided to sell in the future.

Sedona is red rock country. Multi-hued stone formations jut upwards from the high desert floor creating a vivid, mesmerizing setting that changes hourly with the light. When USA Weekend compiled their Most Beautiful Places in America list, Sedona claimed the top spot. Surrounded by 1.8 million acres of national forest land, visitors have instant access to recreational activities. Trails for hiking and biking, along with bouncy jeep tracks, weave among the bristling forest of pinnacles, spires, buttes and domes. Yet, youre never far from the indulgences of town.
Sedona is equal parts rugged, equal parts resort. Regarded by Native Americans as sacred, Sedona continues to be recognized as a place of healing and spiritual renewal. Many come to experience the vortex energy centers of Sedona. Others want to prowl the 40-plus art galleries lining the streets, or to receive soothing treatments from the dozens of spa facilities. Most recently, with its nearby vineyards and tasting rooms, Sedona has emerged as a destination for wine enthusiasts.
Many Westerns have been filmed in this area, going back to the late, great John Wayne.

The Grand Canyon is 2 hours north, and there are day tours out of Sedona.

These are the characteristics used by prospectors to identify gold in the field. Placer gold occurs on the claim as small grains derived from gossan formed by weathering, and oxidation of the gold, copper and iron rich veins. Gold also occurs as grains flakes and small nuggets derived from the erosion of mineralized fault zones.
