Located between Congress and Stanton, Arizona
Located just off Stanton Rd, this claim has pretty easy access. From Route 89 in Congress, go about 1.2 miles East on Stanton Road, then take the trail to the left for about 1 mile to the "Y" in the road. Make a slight left at the "Y" and follow it about 0.2 miles to the claim. Most of the time the trail is good for 2WD.
Located in the alluvial fan of the Weaver Mountains, this claim has got great washes and places to prospect. There are lenses of ancient red dirt paleo-placers that run through this claim. Heavy black sands in all of the washes. It has gold bearing quartz on the claim which makes the potential for specimens great. Drywashing, recirculating sluice, and metal detecting are all methods I'd use for gold recovery here. There are places to camp nearby as well.
