  • BUY THE LAND FROM THE FEDERAL GOV.?: Before 1994, the Gov. would sell the land to Claim owners for $2.50 per acre with some requirements. That would be $50 plus fees for 20 acres if approved.

To be clear, right now, the Gov. will not consider selling you the land until they lift the moratorium.

The Guanella Pass Scenic and Historic Byway follows an old wagon route that linked the mining towns of Georgetown and Grant. The pass sits in the broad band known as the "mineral belt," running from near Ward through Leadville into the San Juan Mountains.

  • EMSS, Inc. will complete the documentation and transfer with the County and BLM to transfer ownership to the buyer. We handle ALL the documentation to transfer ownership including all the financing documentation if applicable. You just need to win the auction, pay the winning bid (Or finance it), and go out and enjoy your new Claim once the transfer/Closing is complete. Once you own the Claim, you need to pay the BLM a $140/year fee prior to 9-1 of every year or the Claim ownership will be considered abandoned by the BLM and be cancelled. They make no exceptions to the 9-1 deadline, so you should pay them early. The next deadline on this Claim is 9-1-2013. We can make this payment for you if we collect for it at Closing.

  • Park County has a vast history of mining and this Claim is near the county border of Clear Creek and Park. Just out of Denver (35 Miles from Claim), it has easy access on HWY and paved roads all the way into the Claim. I do not give out the exact location in the listing to try and keep Claim Jumpers away or at least keep them guessing and also, this Claim is a great bug-out location for all the preppers interested in this Claim. Giving out the location would help me sell the Claim, but everyone and there brother would then know where it is. This is explained in more detail below in questions. You can get to this Claim with any vehicle including an RV.

  • This Claim complies with BLM staking requirements at time of location, and GPS Coordinates will be given for each corner of the claim upon receipt of deposit. Please note that hikers and campers sometimes remove stakes, so do not depend on stakes for the location, always bring a GPS and refer to the legal description.

  • This claim has been recorded with the County and BLM in accordance with required time frames.

  • We generally offer financing with 50% down with payments on the balance amortized over 12 months at a 4% fixed rate. Credit Scores mean nothing to us, we are people not numbers, your down payment shows credibility and intent to pay. EMSS, Inc. will provide all the documents needed to be signed and WILL Quit Claim the Claim to the Buyer even when financed, with a lien encumbered on the Claim until paid in full and release of lien upon final payment. No prepayment penalties or fees. EMSS, Inc. will provide all the documentation needed to complete the transaction and Closing which is done via email or normal mail. No need to go to a Closing, we do everything through email or normal mail.

  • Buyer to pay Closing Costs of $199. This includes the BLM transfer, County transfer, and all documentation. The 2013 season fee through 9-1-2013 has already been paid by us and will transfer to the buyer.

  • We accept Cash, Gold, Silver, Check, Cashier's Check, Wire, Money Order all subject to clearing, other forms of payments considered on a case by case basis, and financing as reflected above. Transfer of ownership with Quit Claim Deed will not commence until receipt of cleared payment and/or arranged financing with cleared down payment.

  • Location to the Claim will be given to the Winning Bidder upon receipt of a $300 deposit which will be credited towards the sale and is NOT an additional cost/fee, as it is credited to the sale at Closing.

  • This is an auction for an Unpatented Placer Mining Claim NOT ownership in real property. (You are NOT buying land, you are buying an Unpatented Placer Mining Claim) We are not implying value to this claim. We have no idea how much or little gold is at this claim, only the earth knows. This Claim has been located by EMSS, Inc. and documentation submitted to the BLM and Local County Recorder for proper approval and recordation in accordance with section 314 of the FLPMA (43 USC 1744 and 43 CFR 3833), to the best of the knowledge and ability of EMSS, Inc. (Seller). The Seller does not control and/or own the land included in this claim and is not representing the sale of this land. Being sold is only the mining rights as defined in the General Mining Law of 1872, as amended; those portions of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, as amended (FLPMA) that affect the General Mining Law; and the Surface Resources Act of 1955. Photos and maps used on this listing are for representation purposes only as to location, general lay of the land, and aesthetic representation, not actual representation. Costs and expenses for and associated with finding gold and/or mining at this claim are the buyers responsibility and liability upon transfer of ownership to buyer. Seller discloses that this listing description does not represent all information and or documentation relative to the sale of this Unpatented Placer Mining Claim and that bidders should make their own decision on whether to bid and/or buy this Claim based on their own information, and/or inspections, and/or documentation, with this sale transaction being considered an AS-IS sale. Information reflected on this auction and/or description are represented to the best of the sellers knowledge and ability and are subject to change and/or correction at anytime before, during, or after auction end without notice to any bidders and/or buyers at sellers discretion.

  • Q: Do you offer a Gold and BLM Guarantee?
    Answer: YES. Please see the details on the attached picture of the Certificate you will receive at Closing via email.

    Q: Do you Finance?
    Answer: YES. I will draft all the documents for your signature(s) and send them to you through email. You simply return them signed through regular mail with your down payment and Closing Costs minus Deposit.

    Q: Can I change the name of the Claim?
    Answer: YES. We will have it officially renamed with the BLM for you for an additional $100. Maybe name it after your family name for history.

    Q: If I Finance, do you transfer the Deed before it is paid-off?
    Answer: YES. A Quit Claim Deed transferring ownership to the buyer is recorded after Closing funds clear. You are the full owner after Closing even if Financed.

    Q: Do I need to qualify or verify income for Financing?
    Answer: NO. I do have income requirements, or asset requirements other than the down payment receipt.

    Q: How long will the Closing/Purchase process take?
    Answer: Once funds are received and cleared, it should take about a week to Close and another week to transfer the Claim Ownership with the BLM and County.

    Q: Why don't you show the BLM Claim number on the listing?
    Answer: I try to protect the location and BLM information for the buyer as much as I can. You would not believe how many questionable emails I get trying to get Claim locations. So I have a strict policy of NO LOCATION INFORMATION except to the buyer. The BLM Claim number can show the location, so I withhold it off the listing for that reason. I do not give out the exact location in the listing to try and keep Claim Jumpers away or at least keep them guessing. Giving out the location would help me sell the Claim, but everyone and there brother would then know where it is. NOTE: I RECEIVE OVER 2,000 VIEWS PER LISTING. THAT IS OVER 2,000 POTENTIAL PEOPLE LOOKING FOR NEW MINING SITES TO STEAL FROM. IF YOU BUY A CLAIM ON EBAY THAT SHOWS YOU THE LOCATION, YOU MAY HAVE LOTS OF NEW FRIENDS YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW WORKING YOUR CLAIM WHEN YOU ARE NOT THERE. THE BLM CLAIM# IS PUBLIC INFORMATION INCLUDING YOUR NAME! I could sell my claims for more money if I gave out the location and/or claim#, but this would openly give out the location to anyone and everyone. So at the risk of losing a potential bidder, I withhold the claim# and location. To all of you bidders concerned about buying something before knowing exactly where it is, I understand, I just do not have a better solution that safeguards the location.

    Q: Has this Claim been registered and recorded with the BLM and does it have a Claim number?
    Answer: YES. It has been recorded at the county and BLM and has a BLM Claim number.

    Q: Have you worked this Claim?
    Answer: NO. This is not a 2nd hand Claim. Why would you buy a Claim from someone that says they have found lots of gold on a claim? Doesn't that imply that they found it all and that's why they are selling it? Just a thought. Please note that at discovery, a small amount of hand panning/sluicing was performed to discover qualifying minerals and stake the Claim.

    Q: Is this for the purchase of land?
    Answer: NO. This is NOT the sale of land, it is the sale of a Mining Claim with mineral rights as defined by mining law.

    Q: Is this auction for 100% ownership of the Unpatented Placer Mining Claim?
    Answer: YES. You are bidding on the FULL PRICE for 100% ownership, NOT just for the down payment.
