Step 1 of 5

For all highbanking permits you'll first need to visit www.idwr.idaho.gov go to the "stream/dam/flood tab", from there a drop down menu will pop up when you hover over the tab and choose "stream channel protection program"

This first photo was mapped using google earth. its a relatively easy process as long as you have the printed mining guide with the corner coordinates. Once I determined where the claim was i started to look at the landscape as a whole and zoomed out a bit to determine where the best possible locations to set up my equipment would be.

I live in elmore county and thunder dog is the closest property to my house so I frequent this claim often. There is fine gold all along the river banks. I have found some in the dry washout on the corner of the claim as well. Just be carefull because the lott up river is a current claim belonging to someone els.. I have gathered a half gram of flour gold from this location so far. Great claim. Good area for the family because it is so easily accessible

Been to this one a few times. Easy to get to. Very fine gold. Don't drive down path to water....ranger got mad even though no sign was posted. Just park at top and walk down. Think with a high banker set up for fine gold you could shovel anywhere and get color. 8 feet is not enough to hit bedrock so maybe just enjoy the easy to dig fines.

For all dredging permits you'll first need to visit www.idwr.idaho.gov go to the "stream/dam/flood tab", from there a drop down menu will pop up when you hover over the tab and choose "stream channel protection program"

once opened choose the "map" tab and locate the section of river you wish to dredge. Once located you can find out the season you are able to use your dredge on. Save or write down the river section & season. From there you will go to "Recreational Mining Permits" then click on "Forms" if you are unsure of which form to complete given the river channel you are using give Kass Jones a call at 208-287-4800 he is great help over at the IDWR.

I have included below the season for the section of river this claim is on, however please make sure it does not change from year to year.
