This 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 a beautiful
claim with excellent prospecting oportunities, geat
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.
content is good with fine to medium placer found, some gold in
quartz and lots of garnet. 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. This makes for all
kind of prospecting opportunities. The claim is well suited
for panning, sluicing, crevicing, recirculator sluicing and
metal detecting. It is not currently open to recreational
There is excellent camping right
on the claim - on both sides of the river. In addition, there
are also 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. This
is a great little Forest Service cabin which can be
rented for only $35 per night. It sleeps six,
has a kitchen, modern bathroom facilities, a fire
ring and a great front porch! This is a good option for
someone who wants to visit the claim but doesn't want to put a
lot of time into the camping
Gold on the claim is
guaranteed. Included with the purchase is one day of
prospecting at the claim so I can show you
around the area and where to find the gold.
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 you
at the counties and at the B.L.M. once the purchase has
been completed. Note: Per U.S. law you must be a U.S. citizen
"or have declared your intentions to become one" in order to
own a mining claim. I mention this because there is a "Buy it
Now" link and I don't want someone buying the
claim who can not legally own it.
You will also receive complete
paperwork and instructions for maintaining the claim with the
counties and B.L.M., as well as the GPS coordinates for
all four corner posts.
If you would like to try
the claim for a day or two, email me and I'll email you a
permission slip to sample the claim. Please have a printed
copy of that email with you while you are on the claim.
Panners only, no dredges please.
