Black Hills Gold Mining Claims For Sale
Deadwood Gold is proud to offer for sale a number of mineral interests in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This offering includes lode claims in patented and un-patended mineral surveys. These mineral interests are located in the middle of what has been one of the richest gold fields in the Western Hemisphere. The historic and beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota are famous for their gold. In 1874, the official announcement of the presence of gold was made by newspaper reporters accompanying General George Armstrong Custer's Black Hills expedition. The next year, prospectors began migrating in droves to the Black Hills and the gold rush was on! The prospecting was centered in what is now Lawrence County, and the cities of Lead, Central City, and Deadwood sprung to life. Hundreds of mines were started and millions of dollars of gold and silver were panned from Black Hills creeks and mined from Black Hills soil. By far the most successful gold rush venture was the Homestake Mine, founded in 1877. For more than a century, the Homestake Mine was the most successful gold mining operation in the nation: for decades, it was the largest and deepest gold mine in the Western Hemisphere, producing upwards of 350,000 ounces of gold a year. It was also the oldest continually operating gold mine in the world.
