I search long and hard to find you the best historic mineral claims, sites, silver mines, and gold mines in Colorado! Based out of Fort Collins, I work my own gold mines on the weekends near Rustic up the Poudre Canyon, in the historic Manhattan Gold Mining District.

I run this site as a hobby, with the hopes that more people will be able to find their passion or riches mining for Gold in the Colorado Rocky Mountains! See below for details about mining claims, and feel free to send any questions about buying or selling claims directly to me at [email protected] All of the mines I list are 100% free and clear for you to buy.

Claims and gold mines are available in Larimer County in the Manhattan Mining District, Boulder County near Nederland and historic Ward, as well as in Clear Creek County only a few miles from Idaho Springs, in one of the richest gold mining areas in all of Colorado. Unlike other claim sellers, I give you the facts straight out and take the time to properly record and stake my claims. I take pictures of all my corner posts and monuments, whereas other sellers will only say they staked the claim, while doing nothing. That will invalidate a claim! I ensure that all paperwork is properly and completely filed before offering any claims for sale. Other claim sellers say they file with the county, while faking stamps on their forms. Not here! I encourage anyone looking to buy a claim to check with the county recorder that the claim is located in; I will provide you with the complete records before you pay a cent.

nouvelle properites, inc. - twin lakes - 1902 patented mining claims, parry peak, lake county, colorado

Legal Description - Mineral Survey #16352 Primary Mining Claim Section 23, Township 11S, Range 81W Total of nine (9) Patented Mining Claims. Go to Mile Marker 78 2/10ths on Hwy 82. For Sale - 1902 Patented Mining Claims of "The Manhattan Mining and Milling Company", located only 1.5 miles west of the town of Twin Lakes, just 38 miles from the ski playgrounds of Aspen, and 23 miles from the historic mining town of Leadville. There are a total of nine (9) interlocking and overlapping mining claims totaling 80 acres, located on the southeast side of Parry Peak. Staked in 1902, the mining claims are Patented, and are offered as freehold with all mining rights. The claims are bordered on two sides by the San Isabel National Forest, and to the north and south they are bounded by other privately owned and held mining claims. Click HERE to view the Mount Elbert Quadrangle 7.5 minute sectional map that clearly shows these claims and all the privately held historic patented mining claims in the area just west of the town of Twin Lakes.

Perfect for an individual who wants to build a peaceful mountain retreat overlooking Twin Lakes. There is a substantial tax credit play, as well. By donating the majority of the land to the national forest, you can carve out the portion upon which you wish to build and know that no other development will occur around you. It is all San Isabel National Forest Land. Call for more details. The 80 acres covered by the 9 mining claims lie on the south east flank of the 12,682 ft high Parry Peak. The lowest part of the claims lie near 9300ft, just above the Independence Pass highway (Highway 82) that runs between Twin lakes and Aspen. The highest part of the claims lie near the peak at nearly 11,200 ft. The terrain is steep and rugged with two small stream valleys with periodic flow cutting down the side of the mountain. Sheer cliffs of fractured quartzite run in ridges from the Southwest to North East across this landscape. In the stream valleys and on the outwash fans are groves of evergreens and aspen, giving the beautiful fall colors shown in the accompanying photographs. The southeast corner of the claims lies on a small outwash fan near the foot of the mountain. This is the only buildable part, and it encompasses an aspen grove with spectacular views across the valley of Lake Creek and the Twin Lakes themselves.

The mining claims do not have deeded access across the adjacent claims. But public access on foot is assured across the adjoining San Isabel National Forest lands. The boundaries of these properties are clearly shown in the USGS sectional map of the area. The historic access, that is the access used in historic times by the miners working these claims, is q uite clear. There is a well-defined four wheeled vehicle trail that runs from the highway directly to the mining excavations that lie on the southern margins of the Bailey Claim. This trail crosses the privately held adjacent claims and intervening segments of National Forest and leads to the mine excavation that is marked by a small mound of waste rock or spoil extracted during the prospecting. The spoil heap is clearly visible in the satellite photographs of the area. The excavation is clearly marked and mapped as "Prospect" on the USGS sectional map, and can be seen in relation to the boundaries of the mining claims. Discarded pieces of piping and steel rails found on the Bailey and adjoining E.F. Beach claim appear to have come from this excavation, and were almost certainly carried in across the trail clearly shown in satellite images. The trail is a track formed by either horse drawn wagons or by four wheeled motor vehicles. Accordingly it is certain that the historic access to the excavation on the Bailey Claim was via the existing trail that leads directly from the highway to the mapped and clearly visible mining prospect. Please note that the term historic access is being used here as a strictly factual, not a legal term.

View looking west from the north side of the Twin Lakes Reservoir, next to the Independence Pass Highway that leads to the town of Twin Lakes. Parry Peak can be seen in the upper part of the photographs, with the fall colors of the changing aspens covering the valleys and flanks of the mountain. The claims lie on the southeast side of the mountain. In this perspective they run from the lower left of the mountain side, on a diagonal to a point just a few hundred feet below the peak itself. Looking west from the highway turn-off at the foot of the mining claims area. This is at mile marker 78 2/10ths on Highway 82, the Independence Pass road that runs between Twin Lakes (and Leadville) and Aspen). There is currently no deeded easement to the property so access is on foot across the bounding San Isabel National Forest lands. The track shown in the photograph is the historical access that the original miners used to dig the still-visible excavations that lie on the southern edge of the Bailey Claim. This photograph is part of a sequence that runs from the gate shown in the image above, to the right across the southeast side of Parry Peak. In the bottom left of this image you can see the beginnings of the track that is the historic access to these claims. In front is a grove of aspens and evergreens in their fall colors. The mining claims begin just below the top of that line of trees and covers the center to right part of the mountainside for 80 acres. Looking West/Northwest from the highway turnoff at mile marker 78 2/10ths on Highway 82 (Independence Pass road). The mining claims start just above the green aspen trees in the lower part of the photograph, and run almost to the ridge line in this view. The track shown in the previous photograph, ends in the lower left of this image. The buildable area of these claims lies on the gravel fan area in the center right of the photograph. With these claims you would literally own most of this side of Parry Peak! Looking north across the highway turnoff at mile marker 78 2/10ths on Highway 82 (Independence Pass road). There are currently no easements to the claims, but the historic track that was the original access from the highway to these southern claims is seen in front of the vehicle. The buildable area lies in the center of the photograph in the southeastern corner of the mining claims on the gravel fan and in the aspen grove on the right edge of the fan. The claims extend for 80 acres across most of the mountainside that is visible in the upper half of this photograph. This is a view looking east from a 4-wheel drive trail that is accessed from the west end of the town of Twin Lakes. The track is about 3 miles long, and runs up the north and east side of Parry Peak where it passes close by the northern end of the mining claims. The photograph was taken from the track. The north edge of the claims is just below the trees in the foreground. This view is typical of what can be seen from any of the south and east facing slopes and ridges on the 80 acres of these claims. This photograph is of a old mining structure that lies to the northeast of the area encompassed by the claims. This was a historic mining area that used the town of Twin Lakes at its base. The trail that leads from the town to the slopes of Parry Peak can be seen in the hillside just to the left of the mine structure. It is a beautiful drive for a 4-wheel drive vehicle from Twin Lakes to this point, over a distance of about 2 miles. Please note, this structure is NOT on the 80 acres of mining claims. It lies adjacent to the north edge of the claims.
