Calvin Mining Claim

Idaho Springs, Colorado, 80452

$56,000 Active
  • - SQFT
The Calvin claim boasts among the richest mining histories in the state! Over a 120 year history there were 3 digs that descended 1300 ft beneath the surface and yielded a rich mix of gold, silver and lead! The mine shafts that were dug remain open for the proud owner to explore as a proud part of this country's much heralded mining heritage! This claim is just 1 mile to historic Idaho Springs & 25 mins to Denver. It enjoys road frontage, a power pole, a gas line, is south facing w great privacy! The perfect home design for this particular property is an earth ship. This is a very low cost, low utility, very simple design, perfect for this location! If one were handy, one could rent an excavator and dig ones own 150 ft driveway starting at uphill survey stake and spanning width of claim once permit and plans are approved. For do it your selfer, total cost for DW and home site could be kept to 6 to 7k.easily. A 20x100 earth ship, built into the hillside, would be perfect here!
