The locality of this claim with reference to some natural object or permanent monument and additional information (if any) concerning its locality are as follows: NW corner of this claim is the NW corner of Section 27, T26N, R21W.






What Do I get if I Win This Bid?


100% ownership of this entire 160 acre mining claim and the rights to any surface or subsurface minerals found on the property.


There are no additional costs or fees – your winning bid is 100% of the purchase price. Within 2 business days of payment in full, we will overnight you maps, information on mining claims from the BLM, GPS Coordinates, a Quit Claim Deed and a Bill of Sale for this claim so you can visit the claim immediately upon full payment.


The Quit Claim Deed can take up to 60 days to be recorded with the Mohave County Recorder’s Office, but is often completed in 30 days or less, and you will received a copy of the recorded dead in the mail as soon as it is returned by the Recorder’s Office.






The Black Mountain/Oatman Mining District


The Black Mountains of northwest Arizona are an extensive, mostly linear, north-south 75-mile (121 km) long mountain range. It forms the north-south border of southwest Mohave County as it borders the eastern shore of the south-flowing Colorado River from Hoover Dam.


The northwest and parts of the west of the range are located in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Three wilderness areas are in the range, and the historic mining site of Oatman, Arizona, 4 mi adjacent and north of Boundary Cone, is nestled in the range's south between the Mount Nutt and Warm Springs Wildernesses.


The mountain range is generally 10-15 mi wide, narrower in the north, and west of the Detrital Valley northeast. The southern end of the range with the two wilderness areas is a larger block and the Warm Springs Wilderness is made of a mountain section called Black Mesa (western Arizona), separated from the north section by Sitgreaves Pass, on the route to Oatman, AZ.


The high point of the range is Mount Perkins at 5,456 feet (1,663 m),[1] located west of the water divide of the Detrital Valley northeast, and the Sacramento Valley (Arizona) southeast. The Cerbat Mountains border eastwards. Mount Perkins, in the center-north of the range, is located at 35.56999°N 114.50858°W.


The elevation in the area of this claim ranges from 3,300 to 3,750 feet, and temperatures ranged from a high of 70 degrees (F) to a low of 40 degrees in the winter.  The average temperatures in the summer will range from 90 degrees during the day to a low of 55 degrees at night, but can reach temperatures of 100 degrees or more.






This entire area is relatively easily accessible by dirt road.  A 2-wheel drive car can get about a third of the way into this claim off of route 93 South, but I would recommend a good high clearance 4-wheel drive or even quads to drive right onto the claim.


The area is full of dirt roads, so a good map and a good GPS unit is a must, but we’ll show you exactly where it is, so finding it will not be a problem.


I advise caution whenever driving or hiking on this claim – the entire valley is dotted with abandoned mines – some of them easy to see from a distance, and some of them impossible to see until you are right on top of them.  I would estimate that only 25% of them are roped or fenced off – the rest are wide open and you should be extremely careful if entering them.


We set up a base camp pretty close to the claim and were able to pull a 24’ toy hauler in the whole way.  I could have probably brought it right onto the claim, but did not want to risk getting stuck or getting a flat.  A couple of spare tires and an air compressor are strongly recommended for obvious reasons!  Also, be sure to bring in whatever water you may need, as there are almost no water sources in the area 10 months out of the year.


We started our day off with a little camp coffee - always tastes better in the field for some reason





And we ended our day with a camp fire to enjoy the incredible sunset!!!





Information on Mining Claims in General;


A mining claim gives the holder the right to mine on mineral-rich land that belongs to the federal government.


A Mining claim is a tangible asset and shows proof of all interests in minerals in the area. It can be bought, sold or used as collateral, just like real estate. A mining claim can be sold, traded, leased, gifted, willed or transferred in part or in its entirety just like any other real property using a quitclaim deed which is a recordable conveyance.


What are you purchasing with this auction?


This auction is for full/all interest in this 160 acre placer mining claim. This claim covers the entire site, 2,640 ft by 2,640 ft. and includes full rights to all lodes, minerals, gems and whatever else you may find on the property. The winner of this auction will receive a quit claim deed to the full claim and all associated documentation showing full ownership of the claim.


Maintenance on all BLM mining claims is $140.00, per claim, annually. This must be paid on or before September 1st, every year unless you do more than $140 per year in improvements to the property, in which case you can file for and receive a waiver of the maintenance fee.


The maintenance fee has been paid on this mining claim through September, 2012, and there are no other costs or fees associated with this purchase.  Your winning bid is all that you will pay to own this claim and have it legally transferred into your name.


Just to make sure that point is clear, let me repeat it; you are bidding for full claim ownership, not just a down payment. Auction end price is the final price for the site – there are no phony transfer fees or handling costs of any kind!!







Transfers of Ownership in Mining Claims;


Interest in a properly recorded mining claim or site may be transferred in part or its entirety. A quitclaim deed or recordable conveyance document is needed. Transfer documents should be filed within 60 days after the transfer. There is a charge of $10 per claim, per transfer document.


Can you camp on your mining claim?


Yes, as owner of an unpatented mining claim you are allowed to camp on your claim pursuant to the rules of the surface management agency.


Can you build on your claim?


You are allowed to build on a claim with restrictions if the structures are in direct support of mining activities. Contact the surface management agency for details.







We do not make any claims with regard to quantities of any minerals on this site, concentrations of any minerals on this site or how much profit can be made mining for minerals.  There are too many outrageous or inflated claims out there – mining is hard work and can be dangerous. Please do your research prior to doing any mining so you educate yourself on how to minimize risk.


We cannot provide legal advice; however feel free to ask any and all questions, as we can point you in the right direction for quick answers if we can’t answer them for you ourselves.


This auction is not for any cave formations of any sort or ownership of a cave or any sort of cave related items. This auction is for a mining claim which provides for the control of any locatable minerals on the mining claim described above.


This Auction does not constitute any sale of stocks or other security interests that represent a current investment ownership interest in an entity or entities.
