I hope it works out for you. Who knows maybe you will really like the claim and it will suit you just fine for what you are looking for.  In consideration 2k is a low price and you usually get what you pay for,  that being said there's lots of claims posted on kijiji right now from 5k - 10k that I wouldnt pay staking costs for. ( Seller from Ontario).  Buyer beware. Hope it works out for you.

I have no knowledge of your claim or the claim seller, but you may have unanticipated issues: i do know a bit about YT.

1) it is likely you can't ever legally build a cabin on the claim - a tent would be ok.

2) It is likely you don't have a water permit without which you can't do much more than drink the water as it runs by.

3) You want to run that highbanker you'll need to build an APPROVED/INSPECTED settling pond to discharge into .

4) All the necessary paperwork and inspections and such ... they're not usually one trip to town and done activities.

5) Take a lot of money, things cost more in YT than in the Ontario.

6) Weather and stream conditions vary year-to-year;  possibly not friendly to your May schedule.

7) Only 8' to bedrock. that's a lot of overburden to move by hand, or you're going to get some local fellow, during his short work season to dig a trench for you... and then you're going to move the paydirt more than 8' up to the highbanker. And most of the placer miners I've seen  don't just get down to bed rock - they tear out the top foot and more, and I suspect your hand tools and highbanker will be bit strained to run that material.

8) You should read the hunting laws, and a lot about bears, before you go. You might decide your rifle has less utility than you now expect.

Lastly, it's an amusing bit of doggerel,  but if you think a Yukoner is afraid of the fires in hell, you might read The Cremation of Sam McGee by Robert Service.

You can find all the regs - lots of them - and a hundred other sources of good info: the surficial geologist, the Bostoc library, Mine recorders office, etc on the yukon government web site - there's a miner's association too with information.

Good luck.

Hi.It is called Buyer beware.Know what you are getting before you get it.There is a carpet bagger under every rock espeacially on the net.You will never get threw 8 feet of perma frost in may.Just saying.On the other hand you may do o.k. in the creek if you are allowed to.Expect to pay 10x over for any thing in the Yukon.I have been there several times.If I was going back I would have a semi trailer loaded to the nines.Good luck on your venture,Mcbain.

'65,

There seems to be a boatload of well intentioned, experienced and helpful advice here. 

My simple little comment is to not let the light blind you here in this endeavor.  Well controlled enthusiasm is a seriously sought out trait that we all strive for, but, on the other hand, untempered racing toward a partially seen goal is usually followed by serious (you might say devastating)  disappointment.

Others here have also seen, over the years, many folks running straight towards something but not looking where their feet were taking them.

Best of luck.

Joe

How to make 100 000$ with 10 000$

Oh no wait I meant How to loose 100 000$ to make 1000$
You have almost no knowledge of mining, you are heading to sulphur creek, which has either frozen muck, has been dredged, hydraulicked, push box sluiced cat skinned  in the 50s, scrapped in the 80s, I sluiced actually next to friday gulch, sulphur in 2013. You are heading to go hungry, I've seen so many wanna get rich bought a claim online coming with a tiny excavator and a high banker.

If you want to learn go overthere with a camping trailer and work for someone, otherwise you are heading for starvation.
