The New 49ers is an amazing club, the headquarters is based in Happy Camp, California. Smack dab in the middle of gold country. It was my first season and the more you learn the better gold you WILL find !! The club has over 60 miles of claims along the Klamath and Salmon rivers. If you are familiar with the area there are several claims on the Scott River, Elk Creek, Indian Creek and a large claim on Thompson Creek. There are several feeder creeks replenishing the rivers with fresh gold every year, rain and snow melt runoff make this occur. I actually have been in Happy Camp for the last year and experienced EVERYTHING. The beauty alone will make you fall in love, some of the most scenic areas around. There is a claim or two in Arizona, two or three in Oregon and they are currently working on getting over 20 miles of claims along the S. Umpqua river in Oregon(still no word on that), providing opportunities for you dredgers out there ! There are plenty of group activities during the summer months which is basically a hands on training and what better way to learn than from some of the clubs top guys !! Here is the link to the club http://www.goldgold.com/
It is too much to take in at once but I would suggest clicking on mining properties and then the master list of mining properties and you will see just how many amazing claims you will have access to. You can contact me for further questions or contact the club yourself. This was a dream for me to chase gold and I didn't mean to stay there a year. It has been very hard to pry myself away from this place but now I have to get a job. I have had enough fun and memories for a lifetime but I will be back soon !! If this is a dream of yours, I would definitely recommend the New 49ers !! Gold fever is hard to shake !
Well, I tried to upload some pics of some gold found along the Klamath with no luck. My 4G device isn't even running at a 3G speed !? Very frustrating !! If you are interested in seeing some of the gold found just ask me I can send them in an e-mail better ! There was nothing amazing but I was starting to identify flood layers and the colors associated with them and also had some luck vacuuming and crevicing bedrock well above the river- way up !! Just when I was finding good color it was time to get out of there !! Gold is on the move again sitting at over $1,616 at the moment !! I am asking $1,700 OBO There is a $50 membership transfer fee which I will take care of.
