These claims have never been mined. In the early 70's oil exploration was conducted, no oil was found. At Prospect Creek crossing and down creek 2 miles is where mining started in the late 70's. the Pay/Paleo Channel continues north through FGMGV's mine site onto the Jubilee Mine site and north onto our claims. In 2016 the Jubilee Mine conducted a drill program. The program detailed a 13.5 acre area within the 1250 ft and 1100 ft elevations that estimated 2500 ounces with depth at 8ft to 40ft. The elevations are consistent through our claims estimating 320 acres of minable land with ample water supply.
Location and Access:
230 miles north of Fairbanks and 30 miles south of Coldfoot, AK. Driving north on AK-2 (Elliott Hwy) to AK-11(Dalton Hwy) (North Slope Haul Road or The Dalton Hwy) to Gobblers Knob. 3 miles south from Alyeska's Pump Station #5, Red painted gated access, key acquired through Alyeska Pipeline in Fairbanks (issued annually only to claim owners). 6.5 miles via claim owner/miner maintained road to Prospect Creek. After crossing the creek, 1.2 miles to the Jubilee Mine LLC. Access through the Jubilee is granted via BLM. Another 1/2 mile to lower claim block. the 2 miles to the claims you'll buy- F023N014W Section 14, NW and NE quarters
The claims are situated in F023N014W Sec 14 with 8- 40 acre claims. Milclay Creek runs through the lower SE corner at 1500 +- feet of active creek with 2 tributary creeks in the middle of the claim block. The claims run from 1250 ft elevation to 1050 ft at creek level.
Milclay Creek is not recognized as a protected creek (no Salmon). Army Corps of Engineers has no issue with mining on these claims.
Terrain is gently sloped to flat, mostly tundra brush with ample amounts of blue berries. Some trees on the hill sides. Estimated organics range from 2 to 4 feet with 4 to 6 feet of top soil, gravel begins 4 to 8 feet from organics. Typically pay dirt can start and have been known to start within a foot of hitting gravel.
In the late 60's to mid 70's, oil exploration took place on most of this land. No oil was found. Gold mining started in the 70's on the lower area of Prospect Creek's and it's bench's. This can be seen on Google Earth. The mining continued north to it's present day at the NNW area of the Jubilee Mine. The history of mining focused on the elevations of 1250 ft to 1050 ft.
We have submitted a road access coming from the north, This will lessen dirt road travel by 6 miles. Alyeska pipeline is reviewing this proposal. What we submitted was for pick-up travel only. Keeping the access for equipment coming in on the south road. We can help with submitting POO for Exploration and/or Mining. The submitted POO at this time covers 540 acre (including the 320 for sale) for exploration and mining.
