The High Bar Placer Mine in Oregon is a placer gold mine that the Hoffman Crew leased for season 7 (2016) when they moved out of the Klondike. The High Bar was not previously mineable due to lack of water rights, only prospecting had occurred previously. This mine when the Hoffmans prospected it resulted in panning out larger picker nuggets. The High Bar is located close to the Buckland Claim.
