Summary

This is one of the largest, contiguous, fully-permitted turn-key gold mines for sale in the world. It has everything a discerning buyer wants: a historically rich deposit, abundant water, and all permits in place. ​

This is a deposit famous for not only its richness, but also for the abundance of jewelry grade specimen gold and nuggets found here. For the first time in its history, this deposit now has the water needed to finally mine it. The previous lack of water to mine meant that almost this entire mine is virgin ground. 

The mine developers spent millions on assembling these world-class claims, getting the mine approved, drilling wells, testing the site, running miles of pipeline, digging and lining ponds, setting up the processing plant, etc.  They developed this mine for the next phase, which is to allow an experienced group to purchase and mine this large deposit.
