AZ105825186 Unpatented 20 Acres

 Located in Wickenburg, AZ

Gold Spot 1 is located just Northwest of the Hassayampa River in Wickenburg off Scenic Loop Road & Rincon Road.  There are areas of exposed caliche, black sands, and naturally dammed up areas in the washes.  The Northeastern wash is 500 feet long, the main center wash 1,350 feet, and the Southwestern wash 425 long.  A 4WD vehicle is recommended to access this claim.  There are areas to park on the side of the road and quick access to the Northeastern and center wash.  This claim is great for drywashing, using a recirculating sluice, and metal detecting.  Gold Spot 1 is located in the Black Hills area about 5 miles directly North of Wickenburg.  There are places near the claim to camp if you want.  It has good access and an interestingly bizarre amount of geologic activity for the amateur geologist to take in, from metamorphic to volcanic events and more.  There are several areas of exposed bedrock and a ton of black sand all throughout the washes.  The dirt in this area has less iron and clay in it, which tends to make it easier to drywash.  Wet washing is easier because there is less clay to thicken the water.  Also noted is much more caliche, which acts as a barrier to keep gold from dropping further toward bedrock.  We did bring in a geologist that confirmed the presence of gold bearing quartz in the area trending from the Black Hills west at about 272 degrees.  We have been exploring this area for nearly 14 years and always come up with some awesome specimens of gold and other minerals.  In addition to gold: jasper, agate, green tourmaline, black tourmaline, topaz, garnet, epidot, and other minerals are pretty common in this area.
