Welcome
Nevada gold nugget detector forum. Chat about prospecting Nevada, good areas to hunt Nevada gold, discuss the latest metal detector technology.
Olinghouse Claim Pictures
I pulled these off of the BLM site just to give an idea of the claims in the area.
The first one shows the ACTIVE claims.
The second one shows the CLOSED claims.
The third one shows the NAMES of the active claims.

Just to give an idea. It would take much more research to track down the open areas in each section.
The cross roads at the ghost town of Olinghouse is, from the SW corner, 3 sections to the right & 2 1/2 up.

Active


Closed


Names


I would suspect that some of the CLOSED claims might be re-claimed by the open one's. Most of the ones I looked at where lode type which do not follow the normal grid like a placer. Lots of overlap sometimes with lode claims.

Hope this helps.

Here's a map from usgs with some of the old claims in the area.

Wes,
Right under the posting window where you write it say's
"Add image to post" in brown letters.
I think everyone misses it at first. It has to be 2 mg's or less.

Olinghouse Ore
New member here. Thought I'd post a photo of a nugget/piece of ore found a little north of Olinghouse Canyon. About 5 yrs ago I had permission to hunt for a few hours. Access was difficult and permission was just for that day. For that reason I haven't been back and is also the reason for giving a location.

The left hand nugget is a 5 grammer from Rye Patch. The right from Olinghouse. Both found with White's GMT. As Reno Chris described, the Goldmasters' think they are both nuggets. The MineLab GPX thinks the left is a nugget but not the right.

Hi aurover,
Sounds like the Whites is a better machine for the Olinghouse area.

Lower Olinghouse Placers has just been claimed up by Fernley Gold. So the whole area is going to be tough to get into.

Between BLM reclaimation project,Fernley Gold and all the other claims, the only option I see is being a GPAA member which has 160 acres of steep mountain terrain.

Here's a little Olinghouse Gold:
