Pay Dirt looks like it has potential for a small-med placer operation.
Pay Dirt is 40 acres of fairly level ground but gently sloping southwest, with developed washes and easy access. There is a large presence of black sands and alluvial quartz. We have hand sampled this claim and it has produced good results for us. If you are looking for a site to start a small mining operation, this may be it. It is located just outside Congress, Arizona which is about one hour Northwest of Phoenix on Route 89.
