The South Bank Placer Gold Property - Exceptional & Uncommon
close this gallery
This Is Gold Country! 
Huge low pressure area in the middle of the river where gold can get hung up & accumulate along its travels. 
Apprx. 4-miles upriver is where the Starveout Placer Mine is located, which was one of the largest hydraulic mines on the South Fork. The mine brought down thousands upon thousands of cubic yards of ancient bench material, which was well known to carry good values of gold within it's gravels. We know that much of the finer gold was never captured through their longtoms, and simply went right on back into the river. This strip of the South Fork also had many other productive placer mines upon its high benches.   Untold sources (of gold) have always continually contributed gold into this waterway.
