Here isa little History of the area that my claims are in..Nevada County Gold Districts
Nevada is considered the biggest little county in California and more gold has been retrieved from Nevada than in any other county in the whole state. It was last estimated that there was a production of $440 million which is twice as much as its closest rival Amador County with its $200 million.
Nevada County continues to produce gold for prospectors and is a favorite since it seems to go quite well. Nevada County is also known to have been the home of the three Mother Lode queens who were Lola Montez, Lotta Crabtree, and Madame Eleanor Dumont; this last one was known as Madame Moustache and was said to have been a famous woman gambler.
The Empire Mine was the richest hard-rock mine in the State of California producing 5.8 million ounces of gold in its operating history of 106 years (1850-1956). George Roberts, the original discoverer of the gold soon sold his interest and by 1869 William Bourn Sr. owned controlling interest. The Bourn family maintained control of the mine until 1929 when it was sold to Newmont Mining. It ceased operation in 1956. In 1975 the State purchased the surface property as the Empire Mine State Historic Park. The Park continues to draw thousands of worldwide visitors each year and is noted for its historical tours of the Bourn Cottage, the mineyard and "living history" events.
The Idaho-Maryland Mine is located in
the Grass Valley Mining district, which has been the most productive gold area
in the State of California and the fifth largest gold producing area in the
United States. The Idaho-Maryland Mine, discovered in 1851, produced gold from
1862 through 1956 and is the second largest historical underground gold producer
in California. Total recorded production was 2,383,000 ounces of gold from
5,546,000 short tons for a recovered grade of 0.43 ounces of gold per short ton.
The district of Badger Hill was once mined by hydraulicing that started in the 1850’s. Badger Hill includes the Cherokee area as well. There is not a whole lot of gold in the tailings here because the Chinese were very thorough about the work they did on them.
The gold in this area was found in the Tertiary gravels, however the riches gravels were the ones that were located further down. To get to Badger Hill you will need to take the Tyler Foot Crossing road east off of Highway 49 south of North San Juan. Go three miles up and you will find yourself in Badger Hill.
The district of Blue Tent was a small hydraulic mining district. To get there you can take the North Bloomfield Road north out of Nevada City. This was located south of the South Fork of the Yuba River. The gravel in this area was never very loaded with gold though.
The district of English Mountain has had some gold quartz veins that were worked on around English Mountain close to Bowman Lake. To get here you will need to take the Meadow Lake Road east out of the Graniteville area.
The French Corral district was a hydraulic mining district. The biggest diamond to have ever been found in the state of California was found in a sluice box here in 1863. The diamond’s weight was of 71/2 carats.
The Tertiary gravels in this area have had gold scattered in them however the gravels located on the lower end have proven to be the richest. The area of Birchville is also part of this district. To get to French Corral you will need to take the Pleasant Valley Road west off of Highway 49 south of North San Juan. The road passes by French Corral and Birchville.
The district of Graniteville is also known as the Eureka district. The Tertiary gravels in this area used to be very rich and were worked on during the time of the gold rush. After just a short time lode mining started to be done in this area. In order to get to Graniteville you will need to take the North Bloomfield Road off of Highway 49 at Nevada City, and go east around twenty five miles in order to get to Graniteville. The North Bloomfield Road turns into the Graniteville Road as soon as you pass North Bloomfield.
State Historic Park is the site of California's largest "hydraulic" mine. Visitors can see huge cliffs carved by mighty streams of water, results of the gold mining technique of washing away entire mountains to find the precious metal. Legal battles between mine owners and downstream farmers ended this method. The park also contains a 7,847 foot bedrock tunnel that served as a drain. The visitor center has exhibits on life in the old mining town of North Bloomfield.
Omega Hydraulic Diggings
The Omega Hydraulic Diggings are situated one mile north of what was the town of Omega through the California Gold Rush. The site is southeast of the unincorporated town of Washington, California. From SR 20, the diggings are available through the gravel Omega Road which combines with Forest Route 29 in meager sections.
ALPHA AND OMEGA
One mile north of here was the towns of Alpha and Omega, named by gold miners in the early on 1850s. The great hydraulic diggings, noticeable from close to this point, engulfed the majority of the original town sites. Alpha was the origin of famed opera singer Emma Nevada. Mining at Omega sustained until 1949, and lumbering operations are carried on there nowadays (1958).
