This property adjoins UK-3 at the lower-end. The upper boundary adjoins private property. Watch for our boundary sign on a tree next to Klamathon Road, near the fence which marks the private property (look for the sign which says “Tres Amigos”).

PROSPECTS: The prospects for high-grade gold deposits to be present on UK-3A are excellent. This is because all or most of the gold which Club members have been recovering from the other UK properties during the past 2 years has washed downriver directly across UK-3A. As high-grade gold deposits exist throughout the several-mile stretch of river just downstream, it is a near certainty that they will also exist on this new property.

Recent large winter storms have made fresh cuts into original streambed along the edges of the river on this property. This indicates that the old-time miners overlooked the area, as they did along our other UK properties just downstream, where nearly the entire bottom of the river is virgin of earlier mining activity.

Aggressive sampling will be necessary to locate the rich gold deposits, because this stretch of river does not include any significant directional changes to help concentrate the main gold path along one side of the river or the other. There is a nice natural riffle (short section of faster water) at the top end of the property which should help create some pay-streaks.

The lower boundary of this claim is located around 8/10ths of a mile up Klamathon Road. Look for our Club signs to begin several hundred feet upstream from the old miners cabin. The upper boundary is posted on a tree 1.5 miles up Klamathon Road, near telephone pole #48. There is a pretty good river access point, some parking, and a little camping near the two old houses just upriver. The houses and fenced-in property is posted as a “National Heritage Site” by the federal government, so please do not use any metal detectors (or even make them visible) in or around that area.

PROSPECTS: This section of the river has an exceptional amount of fine and flake gold in a shallow flood layer, on top of an older layer of cemented gravel. We recently did a Dredging Project near the upper boundary and recovered 4 ounces of gold in just several days of dredging. Several other members have been doing well dredging along the Klamathon Road side of the river and out towards the middle, with at least one member recovering as much as ¾-ounce of gold per day. This prompted us to follow up with yet another group mining project, and we easily found another rich pay-streak! Most of the claim has yet to be sampled. One sample hole on the Interstate 5 side of the river appears to show that the gold is also over there. Some small nuggets have been recovered. Look for the hard-packed gray layer either on bedrock or on top of a very hard layer of cemented gravel. It appears that the gold is some-what evenly disbursed through the hard-packed gray material and that the more of it you process, the more gold you recover.
