Gold claim for sale, and 6inch dredge


#1

Hi fellow miners, I’m new to paydirt but would first like to say hello to you all.
My name is Mark Shaw and I’m from south Westland on the west coast. I currently own a dredging claim on the Perth river in the whataroa valley. I have mined this place on and off alot of my life, as it is alluvial gold and generally restocks after modest floods and guaranteed big floods. There is 53hectares of mining ground on riverbed and flats. I have alot of info and knowlegde of the area im willing to share to the lucky buyer. Reasons for selling is of personal matters, if anyone is to show great interest we can possibly make arrangements to look and prospect areas of the claim. It is in remote location which is a 2hour walk or 4mintue chopper flight from heli company just down valley from the claim. I am also selling my 6inch dredge and complete diving kit, at this stage it can be a package or may look at selling individually. Thanks

Hello again everyone, sorry I have been without internet for quiet sometime. Have a phone up and running now. Dredge is in the process of being sold. But claim is still for sale at the price of $8000

Hello Dave

Yes the claim is on doc land,i have an agreement for up to a 6 inch dredge and 11hp engine, and sluicing. Also have with doc an AEO (authorisation to enter and operate) for the duration of the claim. And I believe as per usual with doc you need to annual review the following seasons plans and possible land impact that it may have. Which Is nothing that the river doesn’t repair and replace after even a modest flood. Regards Mark
