SOLD - 117.44 Acres 7 Patented Mining Claims Oatman AZ 86433
SOLD, closed escrow 6-17-16
Sale Price 90,000 cash.
The Ivanhoe and Nancy Lee Mining Claims, located in the historic mining town of Oatman AZ, are now available for sale.
This picturesque mining town, located about 6 miles southeast of Bullhead City, AZ is like stepping back into a bygone era.
Oatman, AZ is a town unlike any other, with its freely-roaming population of (mostly) friendly burros, staged re-enacted shootouts in the middle of Main Street, and the Oatman Hotel, established in 1902, where Gable and Lombard honeymooned after their 1939 Kingman, AZ wedding.
Just 3 miles north of Oatman's Main Street, the Ivanhoe and Nancy Lee patented mining claims (7 patented claims in all) are located off of Silver Creek Road in Times Gulch, about 3 miles south of the location of the Moss Mine Project that has been much-publicized in recent years as one of the largest in Arizona. (Here's the latest on that project)
The Oatman Fire Station. Only in AZ would you see a sight like this!
For non-mining folk, the patenting of the mines converts the land into private land with full ownership rights (unpatented claims require leasing from the government), and this Ag-Res zoned set of 2 contiguous parcels over a mile wide can be used, as several nearby parcels are, for an off-grid residence, camping area with offroad trails (which are all around and throughout the property and area) or to hold for speculation as well as mineral exploration.
The property is unspoiled and beautiful with just enough remoteness to be 'yours, all yours' but only apx. 3/4 mile off Silver Creek Rd, a wide, easy to drive unpaved road, and about 5 minutes' drive to Oatman town, you're not far from supplies and services. The Bullhead Parkway is apx 6 miles north via Silver Creek Rd, a well traveled road by offroaders and 'plinkers'.
The Avi Resort and Colorado River are about 15 miles southwest of the property, via Oatman Highway to Boundary Cone Rd.
This property is being offered for a REDUCED $105,000 with cash terms offered.
DIRECTIONS FROM OATMAN:
Oatman Highway (Main Street) to Silver Creek Road.
Veer left (North) on Silver Creek for 2.4 miles, then take the cutoff on left (there is an old real estate sign there - not ours - but it can be used as a landmark) and continue west for .75 miles, staying to the left at each switchback. You will pass a brown off-grid house on the left, a gated compound on the right and finally, a large blue steel building on the right on your way to the property so you will know you're on the right road. Just veer left at each of the 3 switchbacks and the third will place you at the eastern property line, about 300 feet south of the northeast corner.
