Specific Claim Info: Golden Rock Cr. 1 and 2 are true gems for the Idaho gold miner. Each site comes in at 20 acres and well over a thousand feet of waterway to work. Great color in Rock Creek and plenty of beauty surrounding your work sites. Close to camping yet isolated enough for you to work in peace, the Golden Rock Cr. sites are perfect for panning, detecting and pulling riches from the water. These won’t last long.
