This is an historical area for gold prospecting, on Beaver Creek, just 12 miles to beautiful Williams Fork Reservoir, 26 miles from Lake Granby, 30 miles to Winter Park Ski Resort, and about 30 miles to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Beaver Creek is a tributary of the Colorado River that flows thru the nearby town of Hot Sulphur Springs.
The claim is located near two state wildlife areas, with great opportunities for wildlife viewing.
Owning a mining claim is having access to a lifetime of great family fun and recreation, in a very beautiful, natural setting.

This is a 40 acre unpatented, gold mining placer claim, the Beaver Creek Gold #3, with beautiful Beaver Creek running thru the whole claim, and is in Grand County, Colorado, in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, and the Arapaho National Forest. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Lakewood, CO and Grand County. You own the mineral rights, not sharing with others, on the 40 acres, and use your 40 acres recreationally for camping and prospecting in an awesome, beautiful area.
Great secluded valley, with flatter claim areas for camping. Easy walk to Beaver Creek.
A firepit has been set up on one possible camping spot, and adding to the privacy, this claim also has a road off the main road, that leads down closer to the creek, Forest Service Road 133.2H.

With an approved BLM Plan of Operation, a building could be built on the land: any building that benefits and improves the claim, though you cannot permanently live on a mining claim. Current usage, is what the BLM calls, Casual Use: panning, shovel, rock hammer, metal detector.

When we located the claim on one weekend, we gathered in and around the creek, approx. 1/4 of an ounce of gold, being worth about $325. As the BLM does not specify the amount of gold to be found to locate a claim other than gold needs to be discovered, we use this amount for a 40 acre claim as a projection of good gold potential. Someone with more time may find more. Gold prices are over $1300/ounce. Though we could never guarantee what you will find, we did locate this claim in an historically rich area for gold prospecting.

You are allowed to post No Trespassing for Prospecting signs around the claim.

40 acres = 1,742,400 sq., feet., parcel size of 1320 ft. x 1320 ft.

Search for riches continues in Grand County where Gold Rush miners left off. In 1875 silver, lead, copper, and gold ore were discovered in the Never Summer Range, less than 20 miles from the shores of Grand Lake. A mining boom soon echoed across the region, creating such towns as Gaskill, Dutchtown, Teller City, and Lulu City. Mines like the Ruby, Eureka, Bonanza, and the Wolverine brought eager miners from Georgetown, Denver, and points east.

People in Grand County have mastered the art of relaxation. It would only seem natural, given the spectacular surroundings and the away-from-it-all tranquility of the valleys.
Known for its outdoor activities means Grand County offers ways of restoring sore muscles with the right dose of hot springs soaking, spa treatment, and even a few sips of local vino.

Your ownership is legally conveyed via a Quit Claim deed, and legally recorded with the BLM and Grand County. A Quit Claim deed is the required legal document per the BLM. Each year, on or before September 1st, you need to file a form with the Bureau of Land Management, along with $310. By doing this, you keep the claim forever. There are no taxes on mining claims in Grand County. Need 2 or more names on your deed. You must be a current US citizen with a US address to own a mining claim in the US.
I have paid the fee for this coming year, saving you $310, not due again until Sept. 1, 2017.

The creek on the claim is a unique advantage for gold prospecting.
Gold always occurs in gravels in the metallic state and when so found has various physical characteristics. Gold is dense and heavy, it has a characteristic metallic color, and it is soft and easily malleable (it is easily formed by hammering). These are the characteristics used by prospectors to identify gold in the field.
Placer gold occurs on the claim as small grains derived from gossan formed by weathering, and oxidation of the gold, copper and iron rich veins. Gold also occurs as grains flakes and small nuggets derived from the erosion of mineralized fault zones on, and upstream from the claim.

“We visited and panned on our claim creek in Colorado this past June and had a wonderful time. We’re very pleased with the location and the claim itself.” Ron H.

“We have been to our mining claim in California that we purchased from you last year. The area is stunningly beautiful, and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase.” Barbara W.

“Living in Arizona, the mining claim we purchased from you has added greatly to our family outings. We are finding gold in the wash on our claim most every visit. 
Thank you so much!” Fred M.

quote from a review on another site:
“We purchased 2 mining claims from Michael Leu over the last 2 years, one in California, and one In Colorado. We have been to our claims on several occasions, and we could not be happier! They are exactly as described, and our camping on our claims and prospecting in the creek on each claim is the highlight of our vacations.
You can trust Mr. Leu. If you are looking for a great time in the awesome beauty of the west, buying a mining claim from Mr. Leu will be a blessing” Ann T.

And just a note of encouragement for you if purchase:
My wife and I have located, prospected on, and sold mining claims in 
California, Colorado, & Arizona, going on now for 8 years.
You can trust we will process your notarized deeds correctly and quickly.
In that mining claims are processed thru the Bureau of Land Management, a 
Federal Govt. agency, not following thru per our legally signed contract, would be a federal crime. I certainly will do what I say, and would never put myself nor my wife
in any legal jeopardy.
Also, we have sold properties on 3 sites online for over 10 years:
Landsalelistings, Landwatch, and LandandFarm.
Our continued good status on these sites is due to our always following thru, as just one time we would not, we would not be allowed to sell on these sites ever again.
