Idaho Gold Mining is happy to offer these two adjacent 20 acre mining claims on the Gold Fork River. For the last few years and since other miners have reported excellent success and phenomenal recovery from the Gold Fork River drainage (downstream of the South Fork & North Fork junction), I constantly have interested parties inquiring if I have anything around this area… well, here they are…at least while they last. These two claims are positioned about 3 miles upstream or past Gold Fork Hot Springs. As you can see from the aerials & pictures, several wide spots in the road to pull off and work these sites.
- Acreage: 20 acres
- River footage: 675 feet of Gold Fork River
- Placer/lode: placer
- Location: Valley County, Township 15N, Range 4E, Section 01 NE 1/4
- Mining claim serial #: IMC218818 aka ID101551695

Driving Directions from Boise: Take HWY 55 (from State Street aka HWY 44), north out of Boise towards McCall. You will stay on HWY 55 for approximately 83 miles, which is roughly 13 miles past Cascade (or 3 miles south of before reaching Donnelly). You will turn right (east) on Davis Creek Lane (Gold Fork Hot Springs and River access sign). Stay on this road for approximately 2.5 miles, then turn right at the T (just after the bridge) on Gold Fork Rd. The name of the road eventually changes to NF Road-498, after following this for another approximately 6 miles, you will have reached the claim. The claim is approximately 1.5 miles past the Gold Fork Hot Springs establishment. Signage is posted clearly identifying the claim along the river side of the roadway.
