Purchasing a Claim

Notice: Claims are not available in Alberta.

Just Starting Out Or looking for a Claim? We are here to assist in every step.

If your interest is being spurned on by the consistently rising price for an ounce of gold and the financial security offered by gold, we're with you! 

However, prior to embarking on your gold seeking adventure and engaging in placer mining activities in BC, you must have a Free Miners License 

If you reside outside of BC, you must first obtain a BC ID. This must be done in person at a BC Registry Office by producing photo identification. You can pre fill the documents required and submit them. You will be provided a confirmation number for use when you arrive at a registry office. This will greatly speed up the process involved.

Purchasing a Placer Claim

Please see the bottom of this page for information regarding Claims.  The potential for locating gold varies as does the size of the tenures and price. Everyone would love to purchase a claim for a small amount of money and be able to retrieve numerous ounces of gold each and every day simply by walking around the claim and picking up the nuggets. However, the reality is, gold is often illusive and requires substantial work to get it out of the ground and into your pocket. On occasion, one may be fortunate to find a nugget but it certainly is not the norm. 

In British Columbia, you are able to conduct hand placer mining activities on your claim without obtaining a work permit (NOW) but if you intend to use any mechanized equipment, a work permit (NOW) is essential. Hand placer mining activities includes activities such as using a gold pan, rocker box, sluice box or highbanker with no more than a 1.5 inch pump. What kind of activities you intend to engage in is important for you to determine prior to acquiring your placer claim. It is also important for you to know your level of seriousness. If you want to engage in occasional placer mining activities, that is weekend mining activities and/or perhaps a week or two during the summer or are you wanting something for a more serious purpose (for example, using the gold you acquire as your main source of income)? Answering these questions will assist you to acquire a claim that is both suited to your needs and affordable. Answers to these questions will also assist us in helping you locate the perfect claim.
