This is your chance to own a historic gold mine. The Brown Prospect consists of open cuts, trenches, and shafts and is know locally as the McLellan Mine. The property is currently being used recreationally to prospect for gold and other precious metals. While I was on the property, I was able to run some material that I gathered from a small stream. I was quite surprised when just a few shovels full of soil from the stream yielded the gold seen in the opening picture! The tract is accessed from a dirt county road and has a good existing road system. Two rustic structures have been constructed to provide shelter from the elements and a place to rest after a long day of prospecting. Could this be the place to strike the mother lode? An assay report from May of 2021 indicates there may be a chance. Please give me a call to discuss this unique opportunity. The property is shown by appointment only.
