Jordan Creek

Flowing between Idaho and Oregon, Jordan Creek cuts a swath through Owyhee County and into Jordan Valley.  Named after the man that first discovered gold along the waterway in 1863, this expanse in the Owyhee mountains of Idaho is still popular for modern-day miners.  Running nearly 100-miles-long, this tributary of the Owyhee River welcomed some of the first men with gold fever to south-western Idaho.  For more historical mining information about Owyhee County and nearby Silver City, please check here.

IGM is excited to offer a 60 acre site on Jordan Creek for the serious gold miner looking for a virgin ground to work. While the site is better suited to a full-scale mid to large trommel operation on all 60 acres, offers will be considered on the 20 acre plots individually. Once this offer of a lifetime is gone, don’t expect another like it anytime soon. If you’re in the market for a plot to set up operations, jump on it now!

Driving Directions to entire 60 acres: From Exit 33A in Nampa, head west on Karcher Rd (name changes to SR-55 just outside Nampa). After 16 miles (past Marsing), turn left (south) on US 95. You will stay on US 95 for approximately 44 miles till you reach Jordan Valley. US 95 takes an abrupt turn west in the center of town, at this turn you will turn left (east) on Yturri Blvd (name changes to Pleasant Valley Rd just outside Jordan Valley). Stay on this road for 8.8 miles, then left on South Mountain Rd. After following this for about 7.2 miles, there will be a dirt access road to the left (southeast), which you will turn on. This is the access to the preliminarily reviewed road, intended as part of the NOI.

Proposed road – constructed, tying in to an existing public access road approximately 1750’ northeast of Pleasant Valley Road (aka South Mountain Rd.) located in the NW SW NW of Sec. 33, Twn. 6S, Rng. 5W, B.M., at an elevation of 4741’, GPS coordinates 42°51’34.47”N, -116°56’37.88”W. The new two track road would continue in a northeasterly direction to the SE NE NE of Sec. 28, Twn. 6S, Rng. 5W, B.M., at an elevation of 4545, GPS coordinates 42°52’37.08”N, -116°56’00.89”W.

There is an alternate route off Flint Road. There are two ATV (4 wheeler) trails that extend down into the Jordan Creek drainage (the one to the west overlooks the Carrie mining claims).

Specific Claim Info for entire 60 acres: Originally to be worked by the owner of IGM, this is a one-time opportunity to score an unspoiled area. Thorough testing shows the ground to be practically untouched: no bucket dredges got here during the gold and silver boom. Test pans and value per yard very promising. Depth to bedrock is unknown. A rancher to the west of the claims has dug 20+ feet down and hasn’t hit it yet. A plan for a new road to the claims proposed and being worked on. Perfect for a mid to large scale trommel operation. A lot of the work prepping and planning the area has already been done for you and makes this 60 acre spread unique and rare!

IGM will supply to any buyer the following:

  • All maps, pictures and plans electronically delivered of operational logistics.
  • draft of Preliminary Notice of Intent
  • draft of BLM Mining and Reclamation Plan Worksheet (BLM has a copy of this, but IGM has not requested a formal review)
  • All other paperwork as common to IGM claims (see our FAQs page for more details)

See details on 20 acre plots below. And please don’t hesitate to call or email IGM with any questions about Carrie Trommel Trio!
