Merlot Placer - 40 acres
Zinfandel Placer - 40 acres

Our Merlot Placer and Zinfandel Placer placer claims are all located in the Port Wine Gold District, in Sierra County, CA.

Location: The Port Wine district is in northwestern Sierra County about 10 miles northwest of Downieville. The site was named by a party of prospectors who found a keg of port concealed in the bushes. The La Porte district adjoins on the northwest, Poverty Hill district on the southwest, and the Poker Flat-Howland Flat district on the northeast. This district includes the "diggings" at Grass Flat, Queen City, and St. Louis. The area was extensively mined by hydraulicking and drifting during and after the gold rush and has been intermittently prospected since.
