Gold mining claims

Are there any mining claim documentation available for the 49ers? My 3rd great grandfather, William Joseph Porter, sent letters home to family in Illinois from the gold fields in 1851 Butte Co., CA. He and other family members are also listed in the 1850 Eldorado Co. CA census.

I would love to see any documentation related to thier mining.

Thanks
Dan
