Arizona is a land rich in minerals. According to the BLM there are more than 35,000 active mining claims on Arizona’s public lands. The exact amount of unclaimed mines is unknown, but gold mines in Arizona abound. The best estimate comes from a mid-1990's survey conducted by Arizona State Mine Inspector's Office (ASMI). They surveyed mines in high traffic recreational areas. From their survey they estimated that there may be as many as 24,183 abandoned mines in Arizona. Many of these mines are insignificant; shallow trenches or small exploration pits, but some of the abandoned claims are substantial gold mines. We survey hundreds of Arizona mines and sell only the best claims.
