Selling half share in a valuable mining licence with its own hut and more than 5km of river, most of which hasn't been worked since the C19th. It's being partly sold because both claim partners are now in their 60s. One has had a share in it since 1989. Am happy to discuss partnership arrangement.

The Wakamarina was once referred to as the 4th richest river for gold in the world based on size. It is now patchy because of the gold rushes of 155 years ago, however rich crevices are still being discovered (we have found a few) and it contains heavy nuggets. The nugget depicted was found in a crevice containing several ounces by us just downstream of the claim boundary - ie on another claim we have and which is also for sale. The top claim in this listing we have hardly worked.

Permit number is 41317 and it expires on 29/1/2026 with right of renewal. Prepared to go 50/50 on $2530 incl. GST transfer fee.
