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.  This summary depicts its location via topo maps, satellite images, geologic maps, and photographs.
