Vini, some good places back there, One gully has good gold, from the Juniper mine, and there is another, on the down hill side. Some claims. but most are not any good because no fee's were paid. Check with the recorders office in Mariposa. It a good detecting area, brushy, as hell. hard to work. but has good gold sometimes. . Grubstake

Vini, that all BLM on hunter Valley Access Road, after you pass the cattle guard. its BLM. Private before that. The name of the other mine was morning Star, it was owned by a guy in Bear Valley, until he died, he was in partners with some peole from San Francisco, You can drive almost to the lake on that road. On hunters Valley road Proper, there is a guy here in town, Mike Buttler, that has a claim, He only use's it for hang gliding, landings. Talk to him, Mike Buttlers Auto repair. He let people go out there all the time. Grubstake
