SITUATED IN THE MIDST OF SOME OF THE MOST RENOWNED HIGH-GRADE GOLD SOURCES IN AMERICA
(General Location - Not property boundaries)
In all regional stream gravels, gold and platinum is found
Along every mile of the Salmon River in Siskiyou County, placer gold is found. Almost every type of placer mining has been used on the river. Both the north and south forks have been highly productive - This is one of the richest river systems in America.
Many have done quite a bit of mining in this county with enormous success. Gold is not the only metal of importance in Siskiyou County. The county is said to contain large Platinum Group metal deposits. Platinum on the Salmon River and its tributaries is large, with nuggets up to 1 ounce being recovered. Aside from the placers, lode veins were found and predominantly mined until 1940. The lodes have been known to have had both massive bodies and stringers which ran to high grade pockets. The area was active until the start of World War II, and some prospecting has taken place since.
Caution: The roads of this region are winding, steep, and can be extremely narrow. You might want to take a good look in a car before driving them in a motor home or pulling a trailer. There are road signs that discourage RV’s on some parts of the road, so you will want to look first. Winter road conditions can often be severe. (Check before traveling.)
