Arizona

  • Snyder Gold Mine – 20 acre lode claim – Tucson, Arizona

    Snyder Gold Mine – 20 acre lode claim – Tucson, Arizona

    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.
