Montana Gold Mines

Montana Mining Claims for Sale

Montana is known as: the Big Sky Country, the Treasure State and the Last Best Place.  All of which monikers it readily deserves. Our Montana gold mines are located in the western part of the state on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains. Montana ranks 8th in total gold production among the western states. Helena, Montana's Capitol, was born during the gold rush of 1864. By the late 1880's, Helena had more millionaires per capita than anywhere in the world. Mining barons built fabulous mansions in what is now known as the Mansion District. Despite the riches at Helena, Montana's mining legacy was built on the great copper mines of Butte Montana. Butte was the greatest mining camp in the world and grew to a frontier metropolis of over 100,000 inhabitants. Today many of the mining-era buildings, homes, and mansions remain in what is undoubtedly the most historically significant location in the mining west. For a detailed history of mining in Montana visit the National Bureau of Mines website.

As of 1997 159,704 claims had been recorded with the Bureau of Land of Montana since 1975. Of those claims, 21,055 (13%) are still active and occupy 245,869 acres of U.S. public land. Approximately 4,915 abandoned hardrock mines exist in Montana according to the Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service estimates.

Current Mining Claims in the Western United States

Arizona

  • Historic Silver Prince Mine – 20 acre lode claim – Wilcox, Arizona

    Historic Silver Prince Mine – 20 acre lode claim – Wilcox, Arizona

    The Silver Prince Mine is located deep in the Chiricahua Mountains in southern Arizona. The area just north of the mine was recently turned into a National Monument, so there is little to no traffic on the off-shoot road that leads out to the Silver Prince. The mine has sporadic bursts of history and production of substantial silver and some gold.

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

    Historic 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 Black Warrior Mine – 20 ac. Lode Claim – Telluride, Colorado

    Historic Black Warrior Mine – 20 ac. Lode Claim – Telluride, Colorado

    The Black Warrior is a substantial old gold mine. This mine was located around 1870 and operated intermittently. It was likely last worked in the 1980s during the gold spike. The entrance is 10' tall by 12-15' wide, this is likely a byproduct of the later mining as older miners never cut hole's of this size. The mine has produced substantial gold and silver and is what you would expect of a high-country Gold Mine.

  • Patented Property – Santiago Mine – Clear Creek County, Colorado

    Patented Property – Santiago Mine – Clear Creek County, Colorado

    The Santiago Mine is in Colorado’s East Argentine Mining District. It has become known as the Mother Lode of the district because of the uniform tenor of ore with gold increasing at depth. The Santiago ore body is productive for over a mile, and is traceable for 15 miles. Conservative estimates put the reserves as $366,000,000 of recoverable ore.

  • Historic Prince of Wales mine – 20 acre lode claim – Eureka, Nevada

    Historic Prince of Wales mine – 20 acre lode claim – Eureka, Nevada

    The historical reports discuss a shaft of over 1000' with thousands of feet of drifts and workings. That shaft reportedly produced all of the precious metals and all processing and refining was done on site. The tailings are very fine and appear to be refined. The heavier rock may have been taken elsewhere. A chainman measure gave us a total vertical drop of 1080' there is water at roughly 1020.'

  • Historic Silver Legion Gold Mine – 20 ac. Lode Claim – Searchlight, Nevada

    Historic Silver Legion Gold Mine – 20 ac. Lode Claim – Searchlight, Nevada

    The Silver Legion is an interconnected group of inclined shafts that stretches out for over 5000' of workings underground. There are 5 shafts that dive down on the same rich fault that has produced an estimated 45,000 ounces of gold up to 1940. The ores are noted as “native gold” and “horn Silver” in oxidized hosts. That makes it as easy and a quick crushing and separation.
