Selling quarter 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 and not as active on it. One has had a share in it since 1989. We are happy to mentor the new partner, if required, eg about areas that we know have not been touched in recent decades. Between us we have a considerable amount of equipment we can discuss sharing with the new partner, especially on specific joint ventures.

Originally, we were planning to sell all or a half share but both partners have decided to retain interests in the claim. The new partner will have the same rights to work anywhere, either independently or with us and keep the gold they find, provided we all keep each other regularly informed. A written agreement along these lines and which includes having to give partners first option if wanting to opt out and re-sell is a condition of this sale.

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 partial sale. The top claim ie this listing we have hardly worked. The other gold depicted in photos have been found on this claim.

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. Name of new part-owner will be included on the official permit.
