Historic Pink Lady Gold Mine – 20 acre Lode Mining Claim for Sale – Delta, Utah

$24,000.00

The Pink Lady is located in the epitome of Utah’s West Desert wasteland. The terrain is rough and rocky, there is no water, and no other resources. This IS NOT the mine for the armchair prospector. If you can brave the hostile conditions and make yourself comfortable out here, you will be rewarded. The mines are deep, expansive and contain some of the most brilliant colors of purple, pink and red fluorite you will find. There is also a history of “irradiated beryl”, which sounds a lot like Topaz Mountain to the east. Historical documents simply discuss a dark red form of beryl that has low levels of radiation.

[learn_more caption=”Mining District Overview”]

Spor Mountain Mining District:

Location

The Spor Mountain mining district is about 35 miles northwest of the town of Delta in central Juab County. It can be reached from Delta by traveling northeast on U.S. Route 6 to State Route 174. Turn west on State Route 174 and continue northwest on the paved road for approximately 50 miles. The road becomes a well-groomed gravel road and immediately forks when it enters the district. The fluorspar and uranium mines are located to the north and the beryllium mines are located directly to the west at the fork.

Production

From 1944 to 1980, the district yielded 350,000 tons of fluorspar ore. Park (in preparation) reports total production of 260,000 tons of fluorspar ore from the Lost Sheep mine, the district’s largest producer. Uranium production for Juab County from 1948 to 1970 was approximately 105,000 tons of uranium ore, and over 95 percent originated from the Yellow Chief mine. Beryllium ore production from 1970 to the end of 1992 was approximately 2 million tons. In 2000, over 100,000 tons of beryllium ore was mined, but in the past few years, production has been significantly less due to lack of demand and the processing of stockpiled ore.

History

The Spor Mountain district experienced three mining booms for three different commodities: fluorite, uranium, and beryllium. The fluorite boom began in the late 1930s and continues today. The uranium boom began in the early 1950s and lasted until the early 1960s. The beryllium boom began in the 1960s and continues today. Chad and Ray Spor discovered the district’s first fluorspar (fluorite ore) in 1936 at Spot Mountain. Composed of fluoride and calcium, fluorite is chiefly used as flux in the manufacture of steel and in making hydrofluoric acid. In 1941, George Spor and his sons staked the Fluorite claim at Spor Mountain. Ore shipments began in 1944. Other claims were located (Fluorine Queen, Bell Hill, and Lost Sheep mines) and produced ore. Albert and Earl Willden staked the Lost Sheep claim in 1948 and began production that year. The Lost Sheep mine was still active as of 2005. It is the largest fluorite deposit in Utah and has been mined to a depth of 372 feet. In 1953, prospectors using hand-held Geiger counters discovered uranium on the east side of Spor Mountain. The Yellow Chief group claims were immediately located and shallow prospects dug. No more work was done for several years until the Topaz Uranium Company leased the claims. In 1959, the company began developing an open pit to uncover mineable ore. When mining ended in 1962, the over-all size of the pit was 1200 feet long, between 300 to 500 feet wide, and 150 feet deep. In 1959, Dr. Norman William, a University of Utah geology professor, discovered beryllium in mineralized volcanic tuffs at Spot Mountain. This discovery was made by accident; a fluorspar sample was unintentionally placed near a beryllometer, a new instrument designed to detect trace amounts of beryllium. Unexpectedly, the beryllometer started clicking, indicating the presence of beryllium. News of the discovery spread throughout the west and many individuals as well as companies flocked to the area to file mining claims. The Brush Wellman Company was one of these companies. Brush Wellman, determined to be a major player in beryllium production, began acquiring properties, such as the Vitro claims in 1964. Mining began in 1968 and the construction of an off-site mill in Millard County was completed in 1969. In 1980, Brush Wellman bought the Anaconda claims and became the lone producer of beryllium in the Spot Mountain district. Today, Brush Wellman still remains the only producer of beryllium in Utah.

Geology

The Spor Mountain district consists of faulted and tilted Paleozoic (500 to 360 million years old) marine sedimentary rocks overlain by Tertiary (42 to 21 million years old) volcanic flows and volcanic tuffs. For millions of years, large volcanic eruptions deposited ash flow tuffs (fused volcanic ash), volcanic breccias (angular volcanic fragments fused together), and lava flows. Then, approximately 21 million years ago, volcanic eruptions and erosion of the older volcanic material deposited the Spor Mountain Formation (mainly composed of tuff, rhyolite, sandstone, and conglomerate). Mineralized fluids from an underlying magma body migrated up preexisting faults, encountered a favorable host rock (the Beryllium Tuff Member of the Spor Mountain Formation), and deposited the beryllium ore. The Beryllium Tuff is a perfect host rock because it is porous and contains carbonate fragments, which react with the mineralizing fluids to precipitate beryllium. Many of the carbonate fragments were replaced by other minerals, forming nodules having an outer rind rich in beryllium and a core containing fluorite, opal, chalcedony, manganese oxides, and other minerals. The fluorspar deposits of Spor Mountain also formed from mineralized fluids from an underlying magma source that moved up pre-existing faults. The host rocks are the Ordovician Fish Haven and Fluoride Dolomites and the Silurian Bell Hill, Harrisite, Lost Sheep and Thursday Dolomites. Many of these deposits are pipe-like in form and contain 60 to 95 percent fluorite (Bullock, 1981a). The uranium deposits on the east side of Spor Mountain were deposited in the volcanic tuff, sandstone, and conglomerate of the Spor Mountain Formation. These deposits were formed either by the erosion of a uranium-rich fluorite body and later concentration of uranium by ground water, or by precipitation from hydrothermal fluids rich in uranium rising up along faults and fractures. Relatively recent volcanic eruptions (8 to 6 million years ago) deposited the Topaz Mountain Rhyolite in the nearby Thomas Range. Topaz, pseudo-brookite, bixbyite, red beryl, hematite, and garnet are found in this rhyolite at Topaz Mountain in the southern Thomas Range.

Mineralogy

Primary ore minerals include bertrandite, fluorite, uranophane, and weeksite. Bertrandite is the primary beryllium-bearing mineral found in the Beryllium Tuff. Bertrandite cannot be seen with the naked eye and can only be identified with the aid of an x-ray microscope. The fluorite is rarely crystallized and tends to occur in earthy masses at many of the fluorspar mines. Small purple fluorite crystals have been found in some of the nodules at the Brush Well-man mines. Uranium ore from the Yellow Chief mine contains the minerals uranophane and weeksite. Uranophane is a pale to orange-yellow uranium mineral that fills pore spaces in the sandstone and coats individual sand grains. Weeksite is a yellow mineral that occurs in a limestone conglomerate above the uranophane mineralization. The Spor Mountain district is near Topaz Mountain, a wonderful area for the mineral collector where topaz, red beryl, bixbyite, pseudobrookite, garnet, and other minerals can be found. Current/Future Operations: In 2005, fluorspar is being mined on the Lost Sheep mine property. Brush Wellman continues to mine beryllium ore (which is shipped to a treatment facility in Millard County) and has 50 to 70 years of open-pit ore reserves remaining.

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.

This Guarantee is not any sort of guarantee of mineral content, reserves or future earnings.

We are here to help the small miner work and support the development of mining in this new era of Mining in America.


It’s hard to make an accurate assessment of mines and mining claims today. The history, the books and the documents change over time. Universities and Agencies seem to write and release documentation designed to deter the average miner.

We examine each mine, and determine its actual potential. This is based on documented and verifiable history, as well as field observations and mapping of the sites. This helps us thoroughly and accurately describe our claims, as well as help you make informed decisions regarding the purchasing of a mining claim. In addition, the geological and historical information provided gives claim owners the tools to know where to look. After all, the gold, precious metals and minerals are out there, and there is a lot of it, you just have to know where to look. If you need more information, please feel free to contact our office and set an appointment to discuss your desired property.

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.
