Trying to Win a Gold Mine in Arizona

I have a placer claim already and it is in Arizona. Now, I would like to have a genuine old gold mine in AZ! I'm currently trying to win one on a G.R.E. auction (goldrushexpeditions) auction site on e-bay!
They only list bid mines on Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday evenings ending at 6 PM CST. Only one mine is listed for each of those 3 nights. Winner takes all, its not a down payment for a lode mine but you buy it/win it outright!
These mines have been worked during the 19th century and up to about 1930 and then for different reasons were abandoned by the mining company or leasers.
These are all unpatented mines up for auction and all are 20.66 acres in size with shafts or adit(s) or both present. They all need "fixing up" before they can be operational again with some degree of safety.
A lot of these mines, according to the research done by members of G.R.E., were once quite profitable for their owners. It might be worth your while to check them out sometime.
