The Bonanza Gulch Claim is ideally suited for most types of gold mining activities from panning, sluicing and high-banking to metal detecting, dowsing and dredging. The claim is located in one of Montana's richest gold-producing areas, Mineral County, home of the Cedar Creek Gold Rush.
If you would like to own your own Montana Placer Gold Claim, the Bonanza Gulch claim is truly a treasure. History is written all over this claim.
The claim is located approximately 25 miles from Superior, Montana. The claim is accessible from mid-June through mid-October. The area receives heavy snowfall every winter making for an exciting Spring run-off.
Mineral County is located in the vast "big sky country" of Montana. The crest of the Bitterroot Mountains divides Montana from Idaho and serves as the county’s western boundary. The topography varies from remote, high alpine lakes to whitewater streams and from heavily forested ridges to smooth rolling meadows.
There is a large clearing that makes an ideal base camp and a deeply shaded and serene campsite for a camper or small RV.
