MINING PROPERTIES IN OTHER AREAS: The New 49’ers also have access to several quarter-section-sized mineral properties near Quartzite, Arizona. Using Happy Camp as a model, we are opening up property in Quartzite to create prospecting opportunities for our members during the winter months.

As we are uncertain how long the moratorium on suction dredging will last in California, we are also supporting suction dredging along 40 miles of the Rogue River in Southern Oregon and on substantial portions of the South Umpqua River.

Most available gold properties are standard, non-patented, mining claims, but we do lease some private property mining areas. Some of the gold properties we use are owned by the Club or its Board of Directors. Some of them are leased. Some are located on State lands.
