Gold Mining

Q. What is Consolidated Holdings Company?
A: The Company and its owners, recently rated the #1 company in America as a mine claim legal document facilitation service, have been proudly and professionally developing real estate in various areas of the United States for over 40 years and combine many years of multi-asset management as well. As seen in "USA Today" and "Money Magazine", the company has built a solid reputation and developed a proven track record, while maintaining its tradition of excellence in helping thousands of families rediscover the American dream with pride of ownership.

Q. Are mine claims a good investment or a whimsical purchase?
A: Actually, they can be both. A mine claim makes a great gift and is a very different kind of property to own, (a legacy, a gift to children or grandchildren). Moreover, mine claims have been bought, sold and traded at a profit for over 130 years. In many cases, with the discovery of an ore deposit, a huge profit has been realized. Since all the claims are located in historic mining districts famous for the gold and mineral wealth they have produced, it is not unreasonable to assume a profit potential of 5-10 times your original investment. Your claim may be sold through the Company, a local realtor or the many Internet sources available. The Company will assist you in any way necessary to help you enjoy your mining claim and make it profitable to you and your assigns.

Q. What can I do on my mine claim?
In addition to prospecting for gold, silver and gemstones, many recreational uses are possible, such as camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, biking, rock climbing, hang gliding, cross country skiing, rockhounding, fossil collecting and metal-detecting. You can cut firewood as well or your own Christmas tree. Imagine camping while prospecting for gold.

Q. What if the Bureau of Land Management rejects my submission for a mine claim?
Submission compliance and government acceptance is fully guaranteed by Consolidated Holdings Co. If, for any reason, your claim is not accepted, the entire fee paid for that claim will be returned promptly to you.

Q. How can I verify that I have a valid mining claim filed with the BLM?
The Bureau of Land Management maintains records of locations and owners in a computer database. In the package of information you will receive are instructions on how to access the BLM website through your personal computer at home or office.

Q. Can I choose where my claim is located?
Due to the number of claims we handle, the exact location depends on the number of claimants and how many acres are available in any certain area. However, you certainly can choose the state and mining area that interests you most.

Q. How can I make sure my claims are contiguous or adjacent to each other?
Just indicate on your application that you want your claims next to each other and we will insure that your location certificate reflects that they are adjacent claims.

Q. Are all mining claims accessible?
Absolutely. Claims are accessible generally most of the year. However, during heavy snows, your claim may not be easily reached. No claim is more than a short walk from an existing road or trail.

Q. How can I locate my mine claim?
Your location certificate identifies the location of your placer gold mine claim with the legal description based on the U.S. Public Land Survey. To further assist you with the exact location of your claim, simply contact a local surveyor.

Q. Can I build a structure on my claim?
You can build a structure on your claim as long as that structure is incident to mining. A small storage building would also be allowed, with utilities run to the property, but again, their use must be incident to mining.

Q. Do I have to pay taxes on my claim?
No. As long as you pay the maintenance fee every year, your claim stays valid and is not subject to property tax. The fees per claim are $140.00 to the BLM in the appropriate state and $10.00 - $13.00 to the proper county clerk. Complete instructions and filing forms are furnished along with your location certificate and maps.

Q. Are there any hidden costs after I stake my claim?
Absolutely not. Other than the minimal yearly fees for both BLM and County, there are no other fees, memberships, taxes or dues. Obviously, when you decide to prospect or utilize your claim in any way, those costs would be yours as well as any cleanup of the property.
