Listing your own mining claim
Do you have an existing mining claim or mining property in Idaho that you would like to sell? We might be able to assist you in making that happen. We will need to thoroughly investigate and review the details of your mining claim internally, before making that determination. We cannot always promise that we will be able to accept the liability to list your claims. We pride ourselves on the reputation we have built with our clients, ensuring that claims are to the legal, professional and ethical standards that we hold to.
If approved, we will provide:
- No upfront fees – these are collected at the time of sale
- Listing your mining claim on our website at your designated price
- Electronic mapping and maps to buyers
- Verify/generate gps coordinates as needed
- Work with interested buyers
- Negotiate sales
- Prepared proper transfer documents – set up closings
- File the necessary documents to transfer ownership
- Offer escrow arrangements as needed
Idaho Gold Mining charges can range between 5% to 15% (excluding transfer fees)…or 3% for patented claims (excluding closing costs).
Conditions we review in determining if we can list your site:
- Ownership & authorization
- Representation of minerals recovered on placer sites, or assay reports on lode sites
- Correct legal descriptions and corresponding documents
- Current on Assessment filing (unpatented) or taxes (patented)
- Proper locating (staking or survey work)
- Obstructions, such as overlapping claims or encroachment conflicts
- Access or restrictions
I’m not sure if I need to mention this, but with the name “Idaho” Gold Mining, yeah, we primarily only list mining claims which are located in Idaho.
Filing for your own unpatented placer mining claim
Have you been out rock-hounding or prospecting, scratching in the dirt and find a treasure that you don’t want to pass up? Would you like to own an unpatented mining claim over that special site, but you don’t know where to start? or perhaps you just lack the time and resources to research the site/area yourself.
Idaho Gold Mining specializes in helping fellow prospectors and miners file for placer mining claims, with the reassurance through our agreement that it will be handled in confidence and completed in a timely and professional manner.
Idaho Gold Mining assists with the research, preparation of location notices (mining claim deed), so that you can get your own mining claim in the specific location you desire, yet at a fraction of the cost of buying a claim from someone else, but with the reassurance and guarantee that it is done correctly and professionally.
With our process; we will map out existing mining claims of the area, check to make sure the land is open to mineral entry, we provide, topo and aerial maps, gps coordinates, legal descriptions (written in accordance to the federal mining regulations) and provide location notices for the client, so that they can secure the mining claim directly (as well as instructions on where to record and file the location notice). It will be the client’s responsibility to ensure that the area where the mining claims are being acquired holds the locatable minerals that they are seeking.
We only charge if we are able to find a suitable site that you want us to form a location notice on. We ask that the search parameter be narrowed down to within a 5 mile stretch. Should also forewarn you that many of the historic and infamous mining areas that are well known publically are typically areas already claimed out, and we may need to decline a search only as we recognize there are extremely limited chances in finding a suitable open site.
If you don’t want the hassle of filing the location notice paperwork, that is something that our company can do for you as well, we can discuss the pricing for your specific area. Contact us to get started.
