Gold Fork River is a really sound place to own an exceptional gold mining claim. Over the decade of having claims on this drainage, it is by far the one of the most popular areas requested. The scenery going up and down the river is incredible, with it common to see big game wildlife. I think the main reason for the interest in this area, is due to what clients have been reported finding on their mining claims. Now granted, often time areas of bedrock are worked when finding larger pickers and nuggets, so get down deep into the deposit if you are looking for the bigger keepers. I would also note however, that I typically see 80% of the recovery in fine gold (50+ mesh), so should be ample to recover there as well.
Other features in the area include the Gold Fork Hot Springs which is 2 to 3 miles downstream of the mining claims. Full services are available in Cascade (21 miles away), Donnelly (12 miles away) or McCall (23 miles away).
