The Claim Post
The richness of this region and the gold recovered is documented in multiple County, State, and Federal reports and documents. Many leading geologists confirm that the gold bearing trend in this district extends for miles and to unknown depths. Mining operations of the past merely dented the surface. The Lost Jewel Placer Gold Claim sits right in the middle of it all.
The sources of the placer gold that is found in the North & South Fork Rivers most likely comes from a series of lode deposits that strike across the head of this mountainous region.
Historically rich in sources of gold, this triangular group of mountains is most likely responsible for the largest part of the placer gold that we find in the Salmon Rivers.
Historically rich gold mining region
The richness of the placer gold on the Salmon Rivers gave North Fork the title as; "The Richest Little River in America". Over 2M oz.'s of gold has been recovered from mining operations between Sawyers Bar & the Forks of Salmon. This area is just 12-miles in length.
