Anyone want to buy a gold mine?

The Gold Paradise Peak Mine is for sale.

The owners have given up in the face of community pressure to stop mining.

The mine will be shut down. This is a victory for the community.

The agent who has listed it called me earlier this morning to tell me that it was being listed.

His concern is that another buyer would want to create a negative impact on the community.

A developer that would subdivide it and create another bunch of lots with cabins would still increase traffic and noise.

He’d like to find someone, a benefactor, to create a wild land park, an environmental oasis, or maybe a state park.

Someone who would keep it in it’s natural state for everyone to enjoy is who he’s looking for.

Do you have any ideas? Do you know a guy, who knows a guy, who could buy it, and keep a natural preserve?

The Senator mine is an inactive gold mine located in the picturesque hilly and wooded area along Senator Highway reached by traveling about 10 miles south from Prescott. It was first opened around 1871 and was primarily operated between 1883 and 1899. Although it was initially opened for the mining of gold, it also produced significant amounts of lead, zinc, copper and silver. A mining town was established adjacent to the mine along the Hassayampa River to support the mining effort including a saloon, a store, and a boarding house. During the 1890's, Phelps Dodge purchased the mine, and the settlement became a small town. This listing is for the 221 acres surrounding the mine. There are several potential next chapters for the property including a public park, a wildlife preserve, an

Supplements: an educational institution research site, a religious summer camp, a corporate retreat, a nature preserve or any other number of public sector uses.
