Claim Overview


 

Historic Carbonate Mining Claim

20 Acre Lode Claim – Breckenridge District – Summit County, Colorado

Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. is proud to present the Historic Carbonate Gold Mine Lode Claim. This is a 20 acre lode mining claim for sale exclusively through Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. The Carbonate is located just outside of Breckenridge, Colorado and has been properly staked and marked at all corners. All Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc. claims have been meticulously surveyed, mapped and researched. Field work is completed by our own experienced, well versed Mine Survey Team.

This is an incredibly well-kept site. The claim has a well documented history of production and boasts a warming cabin and workshop. In addition, there is a tram terminus with a cable still intact. The mine is very high up and it is very remote with very little visitation, likely due to location. There is a good 4WD road that runs directly up to the mine, it currently is gated but it would require very little to get a key to the claim owner. Gold Rush can assist you with how to acquire this key if needed.  The views from the mine are of the entire town of Breckenridge and the ski resorts below. It is located high on the mountain around 12,000 feet and will have limited access in the winter months. The portal of the mine has been secured with a stout culvert and a very heavy duty steel gate. This is a benefit to the claim owner as the workings will be secured from the curious but open to the mine owner.  

There is a massive Tipple and tram house on site that runs down the length of the mountain and to a mill below. The tramway began at the Carbonate Mine, and also serviced other mines along the way finally terminating at a beautifully restored mill below. There is a workshop onsite that can be secured and used to store tools/machinery in support of your mining operations. The roads up to the mine are in excellent condition and well maintained. There will be seasonal closures to this road to protect spring runoff and in winter months, however with an approved notice of operations the claimant can gain year round access to this claim.

There was gold and silver ore noted in the waste dumps at the mine. This will need some washing as it is in a native form but contained within the “carbonate” ores for which the mine was named. This process can be as simple as a crush and separate or made more complex with the use of chemicals at the processors discretion.

There are 7-10k tons of waste dump at the claim which could be re-worked. Our survey team was not able to access the underground workings of  the mine but estimate them to be over 2500′ based on the dumps. Historically the mine reported over 2 oz. Gold per ton. This should be a good average value, some ores will be less and some pockets will be much more.

This mine should be viewed as a small scale commercial operation as it will take some funding for permitting operations, this can be recouped in recovery values. The mine could also be opened as a “tourist mine” and permitted that way. It is a rare remnant of the boom days which still retains substantial value and is extremely uncommon to find in such condition.

History of the Mines

The Carbonate Group was owned by George E Moon in 1920.[1]

According to a 1926 report, this mine was producing an average of $50 per ton in gold, silver, and lead(over 2 OPT Gold).[2]

In 1952, W.F. Moenke was contracted to explore the Carbonate Group by the Department of the Interior, although operations were delayed, and it’s uncertain what the results of the exploration were.[3]

Survey Notes

The Carbonate is the pinnacle of the workings in the Breckenridge District. The mine sits at well over 12,000′ but has excellent road access. It would be possible to get large machinery to the claim utilizing the existing roads. The mine was not explored or documented due to locked gates. Keys to these gates can be acquired from the local BLM office with a notice of Operation submitted and approved. 

Miners cabin is in excellent condition and should be a part of any Notice of Operation as its proximity will increase the efficiency of any work done at the site. There are an estimated 25,000 tons of waste rock on the claim, this spread out between the various levels. The waste rock shows copper and silver with some dark iron staining in some samples. There is a large ore pile near the tram station, assuming it was awaiting a trip down the hill. These ores are dark with gold, silver and iron, carbonate type ores for which the mine was likely named. 

Gold is reported historically to be 2 ounces to the ton on average.  This appears consistant with the high grade ores waiting for shipment. 

Suggested development for the mine would require a Notice of Operation. The portal should be opened and the workings examined for the high grade gold deposits. This would likely include some shoring and stabilization of the drifts. The mine should be fully mapped to determine the size of workings and the general trends of the richer ore bodies. The high grade ore should be separated and processed remotely as to avoid increased reclamation fees. This work could be done by hand. It is estimated that should the high grade bodies show as assumed that a single operator could extract 1 ton per week without machinery. A small team could likely double or triple that number. High grade ores should measure much higher in gold content, 10 ounces per ton is a conservative estimate. The first two years could be spent raising capital with the high grade. If the trend warrants, the mine could be expanded further for full scale operation.

Mining District Overview

Breckenridge District Information

History:

Ransome gave a summary of the history of the Breckenridge district from 1859 to 1909, and Henderson has recently given a detailed account of the mining activities in the district from 1859 to 1924. With these two excellent histories of the district easily available, it would be useless repetition for the writer to give a detailed account of the development of the district. However, a summary of the most significant events is given here before the geology and the individual mines of the special area are considered.

A group of prospectors discovered rich placer ground on the north side of Farncomb Hill in the summer of 1859, and within the next 3 years $3,000,000 in gold was washed from the placers in Georgia Gulch, the Swan River, Gold Run Gulch, Galena Gulch, American Gulch, Humbug Gulch, Delaware Flats, the Blue River, and French Gulch and its tributaries…

In 1870 there were 100 miles of ditches and flumes in the district and $6,000,000 had been recovered from the placers. During the next 10 years the output of gold dwindled to a little less than $1,000,000, all of which came from placers. In 1880 gold was found in place on Farncomb Hill, and for the next 10 years the rich narrow veins of crystallized gold, for which the district is justly famous, yielded most of the gold output. Gold-bearing lodes were discovered in other parts of the district soon after those on Farncomb Hill were uncovered, and veins were the chief source of gold until dredging began on a large scale. Gold dredges were introduced in 1898 and have been working the deep gravel of the large gulches ever since. In the first few years of their operation they were largely experimental and did not contribute materially to the production of the district, but the construction of larger and stronger boats enabled the later dredging enterprises to work large tonnages of the coarse gravel successfully. It is probable that $7,000,000 in gold has been produced by dredging low-grade placers in the district.

The earliest attempt to mine gold-lead-silver ores in the Breckenridge district occurred in 1869, when some argentiferous lead ore was taken from the Old Reliable vein in French Gulch near Lincoln, about 3 miles east of Breckenridge. A small amount of lead was smelted here in 1873-75, but little interest was shown in lead veins until the completion of the railroad from Denver to Breckenridge in 1880. The advent of cheap transportation greatly stimulated lode mining, and within a few years most of the mines that have produced lead ore were developed. The first flush of production came in the late eighties and early nineties, and after this period the production of lead showed a decided downward trend until 1910. At this time the Wellington mine started active development, and it was a large and moderately steady producer of lead and zinc up to 1929. The output of this mine has made up the bulk of the lead and zinc ore shipped from the Breckenridge district in the period 1910 to 1929 and compares favorably with the large production of the district in the early nineties.[1]

Geology:

Ransome has described most of the minerals occurring in the Breckenridge district, and the reader is referred to his paper for such details as are not included in the tabular summary shown below. The writer has added a few minerals to the list given by Ransome, but it would be unprofitable to take space for a detailed description, of these additions. The composition and genesis of every mineral is indicated in a general way in the table, but the relations of the common ore minerals are considered more fully below, and further information regarding them can be found in the descriptions of the individual mines.

Pyrite is the earliest of the common sulphides. Marmatite (dark, ferruginous zinc blende) containing minute blebs and Wringers of chalcopyrite, followed the pyrite; it is usually earlier than galena, but in some ores it is contemporaneous with galena and locally it is later. Most of the light-colored zinc blende is later than galena. Gold and a small amount of the blende are contemporaneous with the last stage of galena formation. Quartz and ankerite followed the deposition of the sulphides in most places, but the gangue minerals form only a small portion of the ore in most veins in the district.[1]

This claim and property come with the full backing of Gold Rush Expeditions and our legal resources. We take mining rights seriously. Hopefully you will never have any problems with the Forest Service or BLM employees, but if you ever do you can rest assured that we will fight to protect your mining rights. We have a lawyer on retainer and offer free no-cost legal representation. We are here for you long after you buy a claim from us.

As usual, we recommend that you file a Notice of Intent with the BLM or local Forest Service office before working your claim. This doesn’t cost anything as long as you are operating under casual use. We would like to see that everything goes according to your plans. Some activities may require permitting with the local Forest Service or BLM offices. We have created a page on our website with helpful information on writing a Notice of Intent and, also if you are unsure about what activities are permitted under casual use, we’ve got some helpful links at the bottom of that page.


“The most important piece of your mining claim is that actual mining claim documentation and location. While other fly by night operations may have the best of intentions, they often get it wrong. This results in you, as a customer, not getting what you paid for. GRE has been documenting, writing and transferring mining claims for over 10 years. We know what we are doing. From our in-house notaries to our master land surveyors, we get the job done right, and we back it up in writing. GRE Guarantees that this mining claim has been written correctly and accurately. It has been physically staked on all corners with GPS embedded images for clear verification. GRE will provide documentary evidence of all paperwork and location staking for the claimant.

GRE works hard to make sure that everything we do is perfect, but occasionally we may make a mistake. So while it is understood by the Customer and GRE, that all attempts have been made to verify accuracy and location in relation to this claim, we want to go one step farther. In the case of inaccuracies or other issues that may impact your claim, GRE will amend or modify and record any documents and physical monuments as deemed necessary at no cost to the buyer.

GRE guarantees this mining claim to be exactly as described and pictured. Please view all images and read complete claim description. We spend a lot of time and effort to document all aspects of each mining claim.

Legal Notes:

*This claim is not for any Speleothems, Stalactites or Stalagmites. This claim is not for any cave formations of any sort. *This claim is not for ownership of a cave or any sort of cave related items. It is for control of locatable minerals and the ability to secure the land on which your minerals are located. *This claim is for Mining Claims. Mining Claims are administered by the BLM. They are not administered, nor are they under any control by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. *This sale does not constitute any sale of stocks or other security interests that represent a current investment ownership interest in an entity. Nor does this sale represent any effort by individuals to raise money or find investors for Businesses. A mining claim is not ownership of the land. It is full control of locatable minerals. The BLM defines located minerals as: * Locatable minerals include both metallic minerals (gold, silver, lead, copper, zinc, nickel, etc.) and nonmetallic minerals (fluorspar, calcite, mica, certain limestone and gypsum, tantalum, heavy minerals in placer form, and gemstones). (Edited from: http://www.blm.gov/pgdata/etc/medialib/blm/wo/MINERALS__REALTY
__AND_RESOURCE_PROTECTION_/energy.Par.26680.File.dat/MiningClaims.pdf) The General Mining Law of 1872, as amended, opened the public lands of the United States to mineral acquisition by the location and maintenance of mining claims. Mineral deposits subject to acquisition in this manner are generally referred to as “locatable minerals.” A lode claim is defined as: “Jefferson-Montana Copper Mines Co., 41 L.D. 321(1912), established the full test for a lode claim: “To constitute a valid discovery upon a lode claim, three elements are necessary: 1. There must be a vein or lode of quartz or other rock-in-place, 2. The quartz or other rock-in-place must carry gold or some other valuable mineral deposit, 3. The two preceding elements, when taken together, must be such that as to warrant a prudent man in the expenditure of his time and money in the effort to develop a valuable mine.” Additionally, Federal statute does not describe what constitutes a valuable mineral deposit; therefore the government has adopted the “prudent man rule.” This rule determines value based on whether or not a person will consider investing time and money to develop a potentially viable mineral deposit. This rule was first stated by the DOI in 1894, in the adjudication of Castle v. Womble, 19 L.D. 455 (1894), the holding of which states: “…where minerals have been found and the evidence is of such a character that a person of ordinary prudence would be justified in the further expenditure of his labor and means, with a reasonable prospect of success in developing a valuable mine, the requirements of the statute have been met.” Note, this is site is not subject to the Cave Protection act of 1988, as Federal Law states: 16 USC Sec. 3378&01/08/2008 Sec. 3378. Miscellaneous provisions -STATUTE- (d) Existing rights Nothing in this chapter shall be deemed to affect the full operation of the mining and mineral leasing laws of the United States, or otherwise affect valid existing rights. -SOURCE-(Pub. L. 100-691, Sec. 9, Nov. 18, 1988, 102 Stat. 4550.) REFERENCES IN TEXT The mining laws and mineral leasing laws of the United States, referred to in sub sec. (d), are classified generally to Title 30, Mineral Lands and Mining. The information above is cited from the official Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management page.
