Arizona Mining Claims for Sale
The Snyder Mines are a very old, and very large complex of mines in the southern section of Arizona. The Snyder is one of those rare sites where native gold and horn silver occur in the same ore bodies in substantial quantities. This equates to a land fall for today's miners. The ores can be easily crushed to extract the free milling gold and break off a little horn silver while you are at it.$48,000.00
The Worlds Fair Mine is one of the largest mines located in southern Arizona it's also one of the richest with documented reserves of gold and silver. By 1915 the property is reported to have produced more than $1,000,000, of which over $500,000 was in high-grade ore. $1,000,000, and $500,000 in today's value would be $23,060,667.80 and $11,530,333.90 respectively.$80,000.00
The Idaho is a series of adits and shafts along with a small processing mill that operated as far back as 1880. In 1977-1982 there were full comprehensive reports completed on the mines including reserve reports which showed there to be more than $13,000,000.00 in reserves in 1977 when gold was at $147.00. In todays value, those reserves are worth over $87,000,000.00$47,000.00
The Confederate Claim is located 81 miles northeast of Parker, Arizona. The main adit is 144 feet deep with a 40 foot connected shaft. The mine is follows long pockets of copper and gold ore. The gold ore is dark and rides right along with the white quartz.

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.

Silver mining in Arizona was a powerful stimulus for exploration and prospecting in early Arizona. Silver production through 1981 totaled 490 million troy ounces. However, only about 10% of Arizona's silver production came from silver mining. More than 80% of the state's silver was a byproduct of copper mining; other silver came as a byproduct of lead, zinc, and gold mining.
