Tybo 2 is a Colluvium/Alluviul 20 acre placer claim located in Nye County Nevada just west of Warm Springs. the claim gets its colluvium layers of minerals from the drainages of the many Gold, Silver and Copper mines up the canyon that were worked as early as 1875 . Also mercury from cinnabar ores was mined up canyon for a period of time . The Colluvium because the top 2-5' is a secondary layer of mostly the sulfide ores. it is a newer sediment deposit overlaying the older ancient alluvial gravels . Mining articles state the early miners in Tybo in 1880 were unable to process the sulfide ores witch in turn with such a narrow canyon were just washed down to where they are today from all points of the canyon, including the processing areas at the mouth of the tybo canyon that are under claim by others . sampling showed small specs of amalgamated gold/mercury along with silver, copper bits and tons of Pyrite /Sulfides . this claim can be accessed easily by the dirt road cut through the upper portion of the claim with easy digging for classifying material down .the stream is most likely seasonal as there was no running water in early October . tybo is fairly remote with Rachel, Nevada and Tonopah, Nevada being its closest sources for food and gas. its a neat little claim with potential .

20.66 acre Lode Mining Claim located in the Heart of the World Famous Royston Hills Mining District . Claim has good access , about 20 minutes from Tonopah, Nevada. I have spent a few weekends here surface prospecting the old dumps on the claim and some picking in the incline shafts. absolutely beautiful color running throughout the shaft , although everything that is blue and green is not Turquoise, they are the indicators of the famous Royston Turquoise that could be found on the claim. mining out the beautiful exposed veins and flashes of color on the surface is what would be done to find turquoise on the claim .I have found some small pieces of turquoise on my trips to the claim but turquoise has to be mined and earth has to be moved . you could stay small scale and prospect under casual use on the exposed dumps and also in the incline shaft , or permit the property with the BLM and open up the ground and hit it with some large earth moving equipment . This area has been worked on and off for numerous generations . its just an awesome claim with tons of potential , small or larger scale .
