The Tertiary gravels of the Northern Sierra are legendary for their rich pockets of gold and prospectors have sought after them ever since they were first discovered in the mid 1800s. Little Grizzly Creek and it's tributaries drain a large area of the Tertiary deposits and has given several placer miners the opportunity to say "Eureka, I found it"!

Equally exciting is that Little Grizzly Creek drains the famous Walker Consolidated Mine area, a rich copper-gold deposit at the southern end of the Plumas Copper Belt. The mineralization was driven by the Little Grizzly Creek granodiorite. The ore occurred in Quartz Veins within a shear zone. Five high-grade ore bodies were mined along the shear zone for at least 7000 feet and to a depth of over 1000 feet.

This one-two punch makes placer mining claims on Little Grizzly Creek one of the prime acquisitions in the northern Sierra. Prospecting skill levels for the Little Grizzly Bar placer claim are from begininning to advanced, trending towards the intermediate level. Numerous smaller veins radiated away from the shear zone and provided abundant placer opportunities down stream.

Floodwaters have been brisk and the drainage appears to have scoured-out every so often, replenishing the gravels and the GOLD!

Prospectors with metal detectors should find abundant rewards not only along the stream but along the slopes and within the cliffs.

Miners and prospectors will have a life-time of opportunities before this claim is played out.
