North Fork of the Boise River from the bridge on
This beautiful 40 acre unpatented
gold mining claim is located on the North Fork of the Boise
River about 18 miles north east of Idaho City. It is
an amazing claim with excellent prospecting
opportunities, great camping and very good road access.
Right at the center of the claim is the only bridge across the
North Fork of the Boise River for miles (see topo map
link below). The bridge can be driven across, walked
across and fished from in the spring, summer and fall.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game stocks the river with
rainbow trout in this area. This makes for excellent fishing.
The claim is 40 acres square (1320 ft. x 1320 ft.) and sits on
just over a quarter mile of the North Fork of the Boise River.
The gold content is good with fine to medium placer,
some gold in quartz and lots of garnet found with the
gold. There are also two gold bearing creeks on the
claim; Hunter Creek which flows onto the claim from
the north and Trail Creek which enters the claim from the
south. They both flow into the North Fork of the Boise River
right on the claim. This makes for all kind of
prospecting opportunities. The claim is well suited for
panning, sluicing, crevicing, re-circulator sluicing and metal
detecting. It is not currently open to recreational dredging.
There is excellent camping
right on the claim on both sides of the river. In
addition, there are some large campgrounds nearby
which can accommodate multiple RV's or travel trailers
and would be suitable for a family reunion or other large
gathering. Deer Park Cabin is located just a short walk
from the claim. Deer Park Cabin is a great
little Forest Service cabin which can be rented for
only $35 per night. It sleeps six, has a small
kitchen, propane refrigerator, propane stove,
propane lights, modern bathroom facilities, a fire
ring with benches all around and a great front porch with
amazing views of the Sawtooth Mountains and
of the claim. The cabin rental is a
great option for someone who would like to visit the
claim but may not want to put a lot of time
into preparing for a full camping
Gold on the claim is
guaranteed. The claim was worked back in the late 1800's to
early 1900's. You can still see the large tailing piles
in several places on the claim. This claim was
reclaimed in 2005 and was thoroughly re-sampled with gold
found in multiple locations. (This is a requirement
by federal law for all registered mining
claims). This is not a "brand new" mining claim like
you might see advertised in other places. This is an
established claim. You can tell by the lower IMC number
which is IMC#189204.
Also included with the purchase
of the claim is the cost of the transfer paperwork, fees
and recording costs. These documents will be recorded for the
buyer at the counties and at the BLM once the
purchase has been completed.
The buyer will also receive
complete paperwork and instructions for maintaining the claim
with the counties and BLM, a detailed surface map of the
claim, driving directions and GPS coordinates for all
four corner posts.
The asking price for
the claim is $4500. All reasonable offers will be
considered. Please contact us at (208) 440-6087 or
