Southern Cross Placer Gold Claim
W 1/2 Section 36, Township 16 North, Range 28 West
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.
This claim has several great campsites, wide open meadows and shaded glens along the creek. The scenery is spectacular. 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.
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.
