Below, rich mines like the Alexander  claim and nearby Golden Reef, fueled the area gold rush in the  1870s.  In fact, gold ore from the property traveled by tram cableway to the valley floor where a large stamp mill had been erected.  By the way, the stamp mill was later moved to the Cave Creek Museum, where it was reassembled and is demonstrated for the public.   The 40 acre property is patented mining land and includes all mineral rights.  Scroll down to photo of ore for a Golden Reef Mining Evaluation report.  Mine photo courtesy of Sharlot Hall Museum in Prescott.

Below, from the top of the property, where there's a circular drive, gaze over the cliff at the rugged mountain scenery. Turn a little bit to the right, and see the view below this, notice Black Mountain!

Below, a pileof gold ore near the top, and the quartz vein in the highly-mineralized zone,  that carries the gold.  Mine tunnels have many uses, even those not being worked for ore.  People will use them for bunkers and shelters, storage of material, and nearby tunnels were even used in a Hollywood production recently.  Can you believe we found 18 uses!  Check this out:  Uses for Older Mine Tunnels

Look below, we've put up a large photo of the super highly-mineralized ore that threads itself  up and down the property. If it wasn't so valuable, what an attractive building stone it would make!
Here's a report and gold analysis of claims: Golden Reef Mining Valuation

Below, Nearby Golden Reef mine: Hollywood Director Alan Carr (Crocodile Dundee) filmed a sci fi pilot movie in the area several years ago, and used the old mining timbers of the Golden Reef Mine. There was an incredible tram way from the mine that took the ore down to the bottom stamp mill. This screen grab from the movie, courtesy of J2 Productions. The seller has a mining claim on the Golden Reef and 4 other nearby properties and those claims will convey with the purchase of the Last Outpost. Golden Reef is on BLM land directly North.  The Cave Creek Museum has reassembled the original stamp mill and several of the tram towers, and demonstrates them on selected weekends!

Below, the prime area for the property could also be the expansive level area at the top, perched on a cliff with city light and mountain views! Could be a possible off-the-grid structure or your own private
