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.

Please read our General Claim Info page as it contains information that pertains to all the claims listed in this and other area-specific tabs.

Additional information about mining and claims sales can be found on our FAQs page.

Driving Directions

From Exit 33A in Nampa, head west on Karcher Rd (name changes to SR-55 just outside Nampa).  After 16 miles, 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 3 miles, then left on Long Ridge Road.  After following this for 14 miles, you will reach the area where there is a dirt access road to the left (north), and a bridge (with a “dead end” sign) straight forward, the mining claim is about 300 feet to the north on the dirt access road (not across the bridge).  I have posted signage stating “DeLamar Gold 2” on both sides of the claim to clearly identify the site at the roadside.

**** A second way to access these claims is from Cow Creek, which is a shorter route from HWY 95, but the road is rougher (truck advised).  The claim can also be accessed from the Murphy side, passing by Silver City, although this requires many miles of rough dirt roads, where 4 WD is advised (faster to use HWY95). ****
