Here is a new list prior and current beach gold mines and beach gold claims for Coos County and a few hard rock mines also. Some may be on private property and some may be simple placer claims. The whole reason for posting such information, is for investigation to find places to find your own gold claim or to find a place to recreate without infringing on somebody’s rights. A good prospector does a fair bit of investigation, and is the reason for this post.
