Historic Scheelite Queen Gold Mine – 20 acre lode claim – Amasa Valley, Utah

The Amasa Valley is one of the most remote areas of the state, tucked high in the House Range, the Amasa Valley is know for its prevalent and free-milling gold. There is still an active placer operation less than 1 mile from the Scheelite Queen mines, and gold ore bodies were seen throughout the workings of the Scheelite Queen.

Overview of the Claim

The Amasa Valley has some of the most historic and richest mines in the state of Utah. It's also in one of the most remote areas of the state. Tucked high in the House Range, the Amasa Valley was noted as early as 1800 for visible gold. Massive old trees that had been carved into sluice boxes and shaker boxes have been found in Amasa Valley. Also reported were old, old mines with rich iron and gold ores.

Most of the excitement quickly passed as the valley was only accessible 6 months out of the year and rich deposits were opening up in California and Colorado.

The Scheelite Queen is one of the most significant mines in the valley. The first recorded production was in 1943. At that time the miners were working hundreds of feet underground, meaning that the history of the mine stretched back farther than 1943, and that in 1943 the mine had just been re-discovered. An old cabin outside of the lower adit dates to 1903 from an inscription inside. Proof that the mine existed far before its recorded 1943 start date.

The gold up in this area is prevalent and free-milling. Placer operations are happening in the bowl of the valley, but not below the valley. This leaves no doubt that the lode gold is still in the valley as there is nowhere else for it to go.

The terrain is rough and the weather is unforgiving. When snow sacks you in, it will be deep and harsh. This is the high country and just like Colorado or Montana, you should plan to be out when the weather moves in.

The roads are in very good repair, but steep and rocky. A full size 4WD will have no problem making it up to the sites.

The claims up here have been held for decades and rarely open up. It's a great opportunity to own some of the richest

Total Workings

The workings total roughly 1000' total and there are a lot of small workings around the claim that are unaccounted for.
Historical Value

Very high historic value. Writings in the mines tell a good story and the history of the general area is amazing.
Accessibility and Location

Access is easy but does require 4WD for some steep ascents and off-camber approaches. Location is like no other. The Amasa Valley is stunning.
Mineral Value

Values at this site are in gold. There is a long history of gold and there is an active gold recovery operation in the valley.

Seasonal water is sporadic to say the least, some small pinion pines for firewood. There is very little shelter at the site. A small, old cabin could be refurbished.
