Brief History of Region 5

Gold was first discovered at Sutter’s Mill in
1848, which was the very beginning of
California Gold Rush in 1849. The Gold
Maps classifies this area as California
Gold Region 5, which extends from
Millerton Lake State Recreation Area, in
Fresno County, about 40 miles south of
Yosemite National Park, northward to
about five miles north of Quincy, in Plumas
County. It extends eastward from
Sacramento to Lake Tahoe and the
Nevada state line. This area is considered
the lower part of the Northern California.

The region covers Yosemite National Park,
Mono Lake, Sacramento, Caia Gold
rmichael, Columbia, Auburn, Placerville,
Nevada City, Grass Valley, Angels Camp,
Yuba City, Marysville, Oroville, Paradise,
Magalia, Downieville, Mariposa, Coarse
Gold, Coloma and Jamestown. Per the
website, California's largest true gold
nugget weighed 54 pounds troy was found
in California Gold Region 5.

Some of the well-known gold-bearing
rivers are: Yuba, Feather, American,
Calaveras, Merced, Cosumnes, Tuolumne
and Stanislaus. Tributaries to these rivers
have also produced gold. Indian Creek is
a tributary of North Feather River.


Phoenix Claim is located in the super rich
gold area of the Indian Creek below one
of the famous tourist sight, Indian Creek
Falls. There is a nice parking area along
the highway 89, and the very short gravel
trails leads to the stream area. You could
spend and explore the areas with a gold
metal detector or dry panning method for
many years. We believe this huge area
was at the bottom of the river one time,
perhaps not too long ago. It is very similar
to an Ancient River, but more recent. The
beautiful Indian creek runs at the other
side of the “modern ancient” river site. The
river starts with riffles and then travel
through numerous “shaggy” boulders and
cobblers. In the middle section, suddenly it
widens and turns into more deeper rapids
with the short-pools. From the upstream to
the downstream, this river provide
excellent mining opportunities, such as
sluicing, panning, booming, etc. Overall,
this super 40 acres claim provides a
maximum mining workable area, both
stream and off-stream area. This claim
suits for any mining methods.

Even though this “top quality” claims is
excellent for all kind of miners, it is a very
nice quiet, peaceful and secluded area
where a person could just relax and enjoy
surrounding nature, or beginners could
get started in a mining environment that is
not too difficult.

Main Stem of the  Indian Creek!!!


This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an unpatented mining claim in one of the richest gold producing areas in California. GOLD price is running around $1,700.00 an ounce, 

so you could easily pay for this claim with a few ounces of gold.


**This claim is for someone who wants a AAA Quality Placer Gold Mining Claim.



Great for Booming or Panning!!


There are some exposed bedrocks, which is great for Metal Detecting!!


There are also some nice Nearby Campgrounds!!!
