Be aware this claim is located in the South Fork Clearwater River drainage and is mostly closed to mineral exploration of any kind without approval from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Idaho Dept. of Lands, Idaho Dept. of Water Resources, U.S. Forest Service, and Environmental Protection Agency. Failure to have approval from these departments can result in fines of up to $53,000 per day. USFS LIMITS STAYS in camp ground to only 2 weeks without an approved Plan of Operations from USFS. The EPA will deny any Notice of Intent Submitted for this area. Idaho is fast becoming unfriendly territory for gold mining. Even in streams and creeks that are approved for mineral exploration require permits from 3 agencies (IDWR, USFS, and EPA) with non-refundable fees, reclamation bonds and a list of 33 mitigations, terms, and conditions for mining. As well as several camping regulations to be adhered to.
