Barber Gulch Placer Gold Claim
SE 1/4 of Section 25 and the N 1/2 of S 1/2 Section 30, Township 16 North, Range 28 West, Mineral County, Montana
The Barber Gulch Claim is located approximately 25 miles from Superior, Montana in a pristine wilderness environment. Majestic beauty, abundant wildlife, fantastic fishing, and great gold; what more could one ask for?
There are enormous tailing piles, evidence from all the work done in the gulch by the early miners. Every season's snow and major melt over the past hundreds of years has carried rich new material into the canyon, creating the potential for rich streambed deposits. Massive boulders and extensive exposed bedrock in shallow water make the Barber Gulch Placer Claim a dredger's dream.
Mineral County is located in the vast "big sky country" of Montana. The crest of the Bitterroot Mountains divides Montana from Idaho and serves as the county’s western boundary. The topography varies from remote, high alpine lakes to whitewater streams and from heavily forested ridges to smooth rolling meadows.
A huge open meadow with lots of shady camping spots makes this an ideal location for a base camp for all your Montana summer activities. Many trails wander up and down the creek; there are also endless miles of backcountry roads that make this claim an ATV wonderland.
In addition to the exciting outdoor adventure of gold mining, the Bitterroot Mountains of Mineral County provide many opportunities for fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and photography. Within Mineral County there are 87 miles of river, 650 miles of streams, and over 50 high mountain lakes. In addition, there are over 400 miles of hiking trails and more than 1,000 miles of off-highway roads.
