There is an ad on craigslist for a claim on the south umpqua just south of tiller? I thought the south umpqua was the same as the rogue and could not be claimed as a scenic waterway?

The S. Umpqua is not a Senic and Wild waterway.. There used to be 2 claims right below Coffee Cr. and 2 more below where Cow Cr. dumps in.. I don't know now if they are still current or not.

You forgot to mention they are selling this claim for 4500. I think the same person is trying to sell the golden gate bridge to :lol:

Guys this is NOT a legal claim as far as I can tell.

Township 30S/ Range 2W/ Section 31, Northwest corner is under withdrawl for a power site as is almost all BLM land on the South Umpqua. This is a link to the Master Title Plat for this Township. (if I did it right) Look down in the lower left at Section 31 then look in the NW corner of that section.
It was withdrawn from mineral entry 2/15/1928.
Besides this strech of river is very strait and if memory serves me corect it is pretty steep down to the river here.
Also this is above Coffee Creek so the area is not known up here for much gold.
4500.00 for a claim he located on 3/10/2011 :lol:
His name is; TAWEEPORNKUL KANOKPHON Claim name; Paystreak II
address; PO BOX 2655
WINSTON, OR 97496-265

He has also done a location on a claim located at 30s/ 4w/sec.25 Claim name; Paystreak Located 3/6/2011
Again this area is under a withdrawl for power.

This claim has NO acess that I can see unless you get landowner permission from the private property above it or you float down the river. Helo's get kind of expensive.

So either he is a newb at this or he is a scammer. :o

But hell what do I know :?

Thanks for the research Mr K. As usual, your understanding of how to get all of that information off the web amazes me. Hopefully this guy is not a scam artist and nobody gets burned on an illegal claim.
