  • 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.

    Historic Lucretia Mine – 20 acre lode claim – Lake City, Colorado

    The Lucretia Mine is a perfect example of the small miner gold mines of the 1800s. The mine itself is a very clean old cut that has been meticulously cribbed all the way to the bottom where a short drift works onto a dark iron and gold ore body. There is a rather substantial building on the claim that appears to be a combination of a blacksmith shop and living quarters.
