Southern Cross Placer Gold Claim
W 1/2 Section 36, Township 16 North, Range 28 West
The Southern Cross Placer Gold Claim offers impressive mining opportunities. An extensive amount of exposed bedrock as well as the natural streambed support productive gold recovery. The claim is suited for most types of gold mining activites from panning, sluicing and high-banking to metal detecting, dowsing and dredging.
The history of Mineral County is rich in gold. Present day prospectors can take a step back into the glory days of mining. The old timers didn't get it all. The Gold Prospectors Association of American estimates that 85% of the earth's gold is still loose on the planet, waiting to be found.
