Patented Mining Claims
« on: June 09, 2007, 01:59:39 PM »
I am new to this forum but hope  that someone  out there will be able to give me  some good  advice.  I have  these
two  patented gold mining claims in the Porcupine  area boxed in by the Venture  group in Whitney Township.  They have been in
my family since 1934.  Actually, somebody told me that when  they  were in their office and looked on their map on  the wall, there
were two coloured "dots" and when  looked closer,they  were the very two claims I am talking about.   I tried  to  contact Placer Dome but  they just tell  me that although the property has merit  they are not interested in them  BUT to let them know if I  intend on doing something.  Well......to  me that  means they just want to wait it out as long as possible and hopefully they can  get them  for nothing.   Is there  a way to work on  this property and start something on my own without  going into big  expensive  machinery etc. etc.?      Any advice for a sincere person.

 :) Thanks Seeker:

  I will check out those websites.   I can see this will be a very time consuming venture if I decide
  to do something on my own.

 
  Sincerely.

Hi

I'm new to this site also, I've only been reading so far, but I'm impressed. you should have no problem getting all the info you need.

you got your work cut out for you, as a welder, machinist and a general tinkerer you can feel free to pick my brain, I've been prospecting and placer mining for more than 20 years as a hobby. I'm kind of jealous, sounds like you have the opportunity to start something fun. Cross your T's and Dot your I's, its the little things that will get you.

Good luck
Mike

Hi Mike...

Pleased to have you with us.  What areas has been your focus for prospecting ?  And do you seek out hardrock deposits or have placed focus more to the placer side ?

Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

Hi

Anything that gives me an excuse to get out there, but mostly placer. I would like to get an opportunity to develop a small hard rock operation sometime. 12 years in the forces playing with explosives, It would be fun to get back into it.

Best regards
Mike

I 'm not sure but you might be able to lease out the claims since you have patented claims and retain title if you find you don't have enough time to work the claims yourself.
