Placer Gold Mine for Sale
A rare opportunity to purchase 40 virgin claims on Tenderfoot creek in the Dawson mining district. Good access road for most of the way which is likely to be upgraded when the Coffee Creek Hard rock mine comes on stream. New land use and Water Use licences are in place and extensive drilling and resistivity tests show very positive results. The Vendor is willing to negotiate on a package of equipment so that the claims and equipment make up a going concern.
Location and Access
Tenderfoot Creek is a direct tributary of the Stewart river. Access from Dawson City is via Hunker Creek and down Sulphur on government maintained roads. From there on to privately maintained roads through to Indian river and on to a new road that goes through to Henderson Creek and Maisy May. This road was built as part of the Coffee Creek hard rock mine project and will be substantially upgraded when the project comes on stream. Some road upgrading would be required from the Maisy May turn off to The Tenderfoot claim.
These 40 claims take up the majority of the Tenderfoot watershed. Over $50K of investigative work has been done with drilling occurring in 2007, 2008 and 2011 with resistivity testing completed in 2013, 2014 and 2015. A total of 68 drill holes have been completed showing good results and relatively little frozen muck above the gold bearing gravels. A new 10-year water use licence and land use permit are in place.
A range of equipment is also for sale but not included in the cost of the claims. This equipment consists of a reconditioned D9L, two Hitachi ZX350ís, a Detroit powered Pioneer 8x10 pump and a 2006 Simplicity Double screen deck with Isuzu generator.
The Vendor is actively mining in the proximity but as he has over 500 claims he has decided to reduce his holdings and simplify his business. To that end, he has decided to put the Tenderfoot claims on the market.
Asking Price: $400,000
