Property Description

This is a legally registered 40 acre gold and gem mining claim for sale, the Sedona Vistas #10, located about 15 miles west of Sedona, in Yavapai County, Arizona.
It is a good sign that the federal govt. has withdrawn minerals in this area speaking to the value for owning claims in this area outside of the areas withdrawn.

Located on a side road off of the main road for more privacy.
There are open camping spots on the claim and trails into the claim making it easy to access the interior of the claim.
See with the pictures maps and satellite views.

Large buttes are on the claim and are great gem hunting areas.
Nolan Tank pond is nearby and its water can be used for your prospecting. Water in the pond will fluctuate according to winter run off and summer rains.

Also, Windmill Mountain is just SE and the gold potential is greater when summer rains bring down any gold and gems from the mountain then deposited into the claim washes.
Arizona is one of the best states in the United States for finding gemstones in the wild. Gemstones can be found all across the state of Arizona, and over eight main types of rocks and minerals can be collected there. Arizona is an incredible place to rockhound, not just because of its diversity of native gemstones but also because of its beautiful natural landscapes.
Rockhounding is more than just a hobby; it is a lifestyle. Arizona is a fantastic place to find rocks, minerals, and crystals that can be displayed in a collection, made into jewelry, or sold to local jewelry and rock and mineral stores. There are also a variety of Arizona-based rock and gem shows that you can attend or even sell your own specimens.
An extended wash is on the claim to multiply your gold and gem prospecting potential.
This long wash is a good place for gold, and the surrounding area of rock formations buttes and mountains are good places for gems.
The claim is on a side road off of the main road, and a side road leads into the claim to several cleared camping spots.
For you off roaders, a jeep climb is down the road to test your adventure driving, known as the Diamond Back Sedona Hill Climb.

A buyer of one of our claims from last year in this area told me she has found a tremendous amount of gems on her claim.

Owning a mining claim is having access to a lifetime of great family fun and recreation, in a very beautiful, natural setting: Arizona, is a great, scenic state, where the spirit of the old west still lives on.
Mining Claims are also a great investment, as claims go up in value over time, just as land does.
if you purchase a claim from us, at no charge, I would help you if you ever decided to sell in the future.

Yavapai County where our claims are located in the central part of Arizona, ranks first historically in the State in gold production.
Our claims are in the same area of the Jerome (Verde) Mining District which has a history of being the largest gold producing area in Arizona, having contributed about 1,565,000 ounces of gold over the years, with the county history of gold discoveries being 3,800,000 ounces of gold.
Though mineral deposits were known in this area long before the Civil War, the first prospectors were Union soldiers with mining experience from California.

We are especially excited about the gems you will find in this area.
Known also as a gem area, when the rains start coming, Verde Valley rockhounds come running. The gem hunting in this area is so popular that a large club is active in Sedona.
Quartz is abundant and is also an area for crystals, turquoise, amethyst, jasper, agates, opals and some can be found above ground.
The Sedona Rockhounding Club has one area they explore being from Sedona stretching southwest to the town of Crown King.
Our claims are in this direct path for gem exploration.
We found quartz, agates, and crystals on this claim.

Having been to Sedona in the past and loving our experience, we looked to locate claims there.
We were also motivated by a claim in this area where the family has owned and worked it since 1947.
Our claims are near Sycamore Canyon and Red Rock State Park and the beauty of our claim area is much like landscapes around Sedona and the canyon area.
There are extended washes on the claim.
Our clams are in Yavapai County, being in the same county as the TV gold prospecting show on The Discovery Channel, Dave Turins Lost Mine.
The Sedona Mago Resort is nearby.
Cool Village of Oak Creek is just 5 miles south of Sedona.
Within hiking distance is the Sedona Wetlands Preserve that attracts a large variety of birds where there is a parking area, restrooms, and picnic benches.

I am a retired teacher, and got into prospecting as a hobby with my family.
I am 71 and my wife 68, and we have gained the experience to select the best areas to locate claims.
We feel we are selling more than the gold and gems on beautiful land.
You would be acquiring an experience that will give you a good feel for what the old time prospectors must have felt during the days of the original Arizona Gold Rush.

A mining claim is an affordable way to enjoy the beauty of the land combined with the adventure of panning for gold and searching for gems.

If within one year you are not satisfied with your claim, you can trade for another comparable claim, just paying the BLM and County transfer fees which will be about $125 per claim.

The washes on the claim are a great advantage for prospecting, especially when the summer rains run down the washes, then depositing gold flakes down from the mountains and rock formations, and which also exposes gem veins.

This is a 40 acre unpatented, gold and gem mining claim, the Sedona Vistas #10. The claim is legally registered with the Bureau of Land Management out of Phoenix and Yavapai County.

Great combination of good access, wilderness beauty, and gold and gem prospecting potential.

Yavapai County is one of the four original Arizona counties formed in September of 1864, one year after the Arizona Territory was established. The County was named after the Yavapai Tribe, whose name means the people of the sun.
Yavapai County is a land of deep character and changing terrain. Views are far-reaching capped by clear blue skies. Prehistoric remains of the Sinaguan people are tucked into sandstone ledges and prominent hilltops. Area lakes are nestled in the pines surrounded by thousands of miles of hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails. The real spirit of the West is fully alive in this timeless territory.

Sedona is red rock country. Multi-hued stone formations jut upwards from the high desert floor creating a vivid, mesmerizing setting that changes hourly with the light. When USA Weekend compiled their Most Beautiful Places in America list, Sedona claimed the top spot. Surrounded by 1.8 million acres of national forest land, visitors have instant access to recreational activities. Trails for hiking and biking, along with bouncy jeep tracks, weave among the bristling forest of pinnacles, spires, buttes and domes. Yet, youre never far from the indulgences of town.
Sedona is equal parts rugged, equal parts resort. Regarded by Native Americans as sacred, Sedona continues to be recognized as a place of healing and spiritual renewal. Many come to experience the vortex energy centers of Sedona. Others want to prowl the 40-plus art galleries lining the streets, or to receive soothing treatments from the dozens of spa facilities. Most recently, with its nearby vineyards and tasting rooms, Sedona has emerged as a destination for wine enthusiasts.
Many Westerns have been filmed in this area, going back to the late, great John Wayne.

The Grand Canyon is 2 hours north, and there are day tours out of Sedona.

Gold always occurs in gravels in the metallic state and when so found has various physical characteristics. Gold is dense and heavy, it has a characteristic metallic color, and it is soft and easily malleable (it is easily formed by hammering). These are the characteristics used by prospectors to identify gold in the field. Placer gold occurs on the claim as small grains derived from gossan formed by weathering, and oxidation of the gold, copper and iron rich veins. Gold also occurs as grains flakes and small nuggets derived from the erosion of mineralized fault zones.

COMMENTS FROM SATISFIED CLAIM BUYERS:

“We live in Arizona and purchased a mining claim from Mr. Leu.
The claim is everything as advertised. The Superstition Mountains make for awesome views. We have camped on our claim a number of times and have found gold in the wash on our claim. We are very happy with our purchase.

Living in another state, we were a little skeptical on buying a mining claim in Arizona. But our personal experience with Mr. Leu has been a family blessing.
Our camping and prospecting on our claim has brought our family closer together.
We were so pleased, we bought a claim in Colorado from Mr. Leu, and are looking to buy one also in California as we look to plan family vacations around our claims.

Love my Arizona claim! I have been spending a lot of time there. Ive found relics, artifacts and some gold. I am so happy with my purchase, and thank you for being honest and trustworthy.

Thanks Michael. We took our girls to the campsite area closest to the claim last weekend.
It was a great experience. Were really looking forward to raising them up to be adventure seekers, nature loves and Creation appreciators. This claim has already brought and provided a wonderful experience for my family. Thank you so much for the claim purchase.

We live in Ohio.. Our connection to the West is our daughter lives in Denver, though she is not involved with our claims, and we had a vacation home in Arizona; though now sold, we still go to AZ to explore, prospect, and locate claims, as we have been doing for a number of years.

And just a note of encouragement for you if purchase:
My wife and I have located, prospected on, and sold mining claims in
California, Colorado, & Arizona, going on now for 30 years.
You can trust we will process your notarized deeds correctly and quickly.
In that mining claims are processed thru the Bureau of Land Management, a
Federal Govt. agency, not following thru per our legally signed contract, would be a federal crime. I certainly will do what I say, and would never put myself nor my wife in any legal jeopardy.
Also, we have sold properties on 4 sites online for over 25 years:
Landsalelistings, Landwatch, LandandFarm, and LandsofAmerica.
Our continued good status on these sites is due to our always following thru, as just one time we would not, we would not be allowed to sell on these sites ever again.
