the gloria z gold placer mine - minelistings.com

Gloria Z is a historical placer mine dating back to the late 1800's. The mine is currently functional today as a placer gold mine with a significant aggregate resource that is sold as a bi-product. The Gloria Z was one of the many gold placer mine's where Gold Rush filmed one of their episodes. The Gloria Z is fully permitted (M1984-094) with senior water rights and the infrastructure to deliver water for needed material processing requirements. Recent exploration data is available to interested buyers with the proviso a Non-Disclosure agreement is executed. The mine site is located within a half mile of Hwy 9, and with 3 miles of Hwy 285. Fairplay is approximately 2 miles south east of the mine. All year access is provided by CDOT and the County

2001 Platte Drive,Fairplay, Colorado, 80440 The mine is approximately 90 miles west of Denver and 20 miles from Breckenridge. Access is provided by Hwy 285 and Hwy 9. The mine is approximately 2 miles northwest of Fairplay adjacent to Hwy 9. Access can also be achieved using Hwy 9 from the Breckenridge, Colorado The entrance to the mine is 1,340 feet east on Platte Drive after its intersection with Ridge Road. Based on the legal description using the nearest section corner, this entrance is also described as beginning at the NE comer of the NW 1/4 of the NW 1/4 of Section 32, Township 9 South, Range 77 West, then S 6339'44" East 1498.51 to mine entrance

The Gloria Z's existing permit area is approximately 45 acres and another 20 acres that will be amended to the existing permit in 2020. Past mining experience and the recent exploration data confirms gold recoveries have been significant and future mining will be a profitable venture whether mining the gold or the aggregate. While the gold reserves can not be quantified with the existing data, the exploration information is compelling that significant gold values are present. Aggregate reserves are estimated to be 15,000,000 tons with approximately 85,000 tons have been stockpiled for market. Truck scales are in place. The attached photos provide a limited overview of the property.

After 1939 private individuals and companies extended their prospecting into these areas, and several new placers were started, but this later work is not included in the present report. The total gross output during the period 1939-42 amounted to about $2,000,000. (Singewald, Quentin,1947.) Site geology is best described as the upper reach of the South Platte River in Pleistocene glacial moraine gravels mixed with some Quaternary gravels of recent age. Sand beds and clay beds are also interspersed with the alluvium. Depths of this material range from 30' to 100' within the permit area. These gravels overlay a bedrock of pre-Cambrian schist, gneiss and intrusive granite, which are also present in the mountains on both sides of the permit area. Free gold is concentrated within 10 feet of bedrock and in close proximity to the undisturbed terminal moraine

Placer gold mining commenced in the later 1800s, Playfair Land Company acquired the Gloria Z Mine/Sanborn Sand and Gravel acquired in 2001 by Playfair Land Company leased the Gloria Z. Since 2001, the mine produced free gold and a variety of aggregate products.

I buy, sell, and deal in mining related items from the California Gold Rush Era and those mining antiques that are related to the gold and silver mining that went on in this area from the period spanning roughly from the late 1840's to the first quarter of the 20th century.We are also interested in mining related artifacts and lighting devices from other parts of the country. Especially carbide mining lights, oilwick lights, and miners safety lamps. We use to live in the foothills of California, outside of Placerville and Coloma, where John Marshallfirst discovered gold in 1849 at Sutter Mill. It is an area that is rich in history and old lore, but like the gold it is most famous for, now near depleted of all antiques related to its rich mining heritage. I am seeking all sorts of mining related artifacts having to do with this historic era and locale for inclusion on our antique sales pages at www.Patented-Antiques.com. Below I will briefly discuss and picture a few mine lighting devices and give you a general outline of the sorts of mining related antiques we are interested in. Mine Lighting Lighting in mines was both a vital necessity and dangerous proposition. Through the years several different types of mine lighting evolved, and then disappeared. After the introduction of electricity and battery powered lighting most live flame related ideas were obsolete and relegated to the realm of collectability.The use of live flames from candles used in candlesticks, oil in oilwick lamps, carbide lamps,or even the light provided by Safety or Davey lamps came to an end. All forms of earlier mine lighting are of interest. From the earliest miners candlesticks, to candlesticks that have unusual patented features, or examples with ornate file work or other decoration on them. There are so many different variations that books have been written on the subject. There is also a large reference book covering all forms of Mine Lighting in general by a fellow named Pohs. It is considered the bible in the field of mine light collecting. Miners Candlesticks can be markedwith the maker or mine name.Candlestickswere often made by blacksmiths and so there are many many unique and different examples that can be found. Some are very crude and utilitarian, while others are superb pieces of workmanship and are consideredpieces of art. Unusual candlesticks can have fuse cutters built in to them, or can fold up to be more compact, or even those that come apart (known as take-downs) for easier transport and storage. There are also examples with different means to hold the candle, or candlesticks that have storage area for matches, and even one variety or type that has an area in the loop handle to try and hide a little bit of gold from the mine owners on the way out of the mine. These are called High Graders.Values for candlesticks can range from as low as 25.00-50.00 for common generics to thousands for rare patented examples or other one of a kind examples. There are fakes in the world to contend with as well. Early mine lighting devices known as oil wick lamps or teapots are associated with coal mines. Oil wick lamps came in a myriad of different materials, shapes, sizes, and designsExamples made of different materials from the normal ---- tin or sheet steel, usually command a premium.Lamps made from materials such as aluminum, brass, copper, cast iron and other materials are eagerly sought. Some of these antique lighting devices have interesting designs etched into them, and others have ID plaques from the mine, or from mining organizations such as the Mineworkers of America - MWA. . Those that are different from the norm are of particular interest and can still bring good money while common or typical ones sell for $50.00 or less. If you have any old mine lighting devices or other mining related antiques that you want to sell contact me at [email protected] as many details as possible. Carbide mining lamps were the next source of light to be introduced. It was a means still being used long after electrical lighting was available, but for various reasons was still being developed and used in mining. This source of light was relatively short lived but during their heyday, near the turn of the last century and up until about the 20's there were many different varieties patented and put on the market. Some of these lamps are quite rare today, while others such as those by the three most common makers---Justrite, Auto-Lite, and Guys Dropper---can be found in nearly every antique shop or at every flea market in the country on any given day for $20.00 - $40.00 or so.You can even find modern day Butterfly brand carbide lamps that are made in Hong Kong or China. There are scores of other much less common names available.Pictured on the left is an example of a fairly hard to find carbide that is made of aluminum called the Lumi-Lamp. These aluminum carbide lamps, unless unfired or unused, are usually in rough condition because of the tendency to corrode from the effects of the carbide gas, moisture, and the corrosive nature of the mixture and the gas that they produced when the water was added to the carbide to generate the acetylene gas that was then lit to produce the light. The basic idea was right, looking for a material that was strong, light,and would not rust, but I suppose they did not count on the nature of the gas that was going to be created, and obviously the choice of material was not studied enough. Just above is a nickel plated lamp marked T I P that is a bit different as well. That really stands for It's Trouble Proof. Names of some other good carbide lamps are Wolf, Anton, Funk Bros, What Cheer, X-ray, Victor, and many others.Some of these lamps can sell for many hundreds of dollars if in nice condition. Other mining related antiques that we are interested in buying would be dynamite boxes, dynamite blasting boxes, what are referred to as dynamite cap tins, as well as dynamite crimpers, and other blasting / mining related antiques. I am also interested in antique surveying tools that are related to mining such as unusual plumb bobs or plummets, dip needles or compasses, as well as mining transits with auxiliary scopes, inclinometer levels, and other devices used in the construction and layout of mines. The above mining related antiques are examples of the caliber, condition and quality of these types of antiques that we are primarily interested in.
