Our test results recovered fines and flakes of placer gold in the wash south and downslope from the small hand dug trenches and pits. The largest nugget that I have recovered in Arizona, a 1.2 ounce piece was found downstream from this claim (see photo).
The claim is situated about 3 miles northeast of the northwest trending detachment system that was the plumbing system for gold, silver and base metals, copper, lead & zinc.
The gold bearing rusty zone appears to be striking northwest and dipping steeply to the northeast. Our sample results taken from rock chip exposures and small dumps indicated some of the highest gold values found in this area. The mineralization to the northwest and southeast appears to be concealed by a shallow alluvial cover.
