Spent half a day prospecting the claim. Ended up panning material from under a fallen tree, the downstream side of a large boulder, and under some boulder moss. About 10 colors from 2 buckets of dirt and 1 bucket of moss. Not a lot of access to creekside digging, but plenty of opportunity between the creek and the road.

Water is still high. Found very fine gold. Probably fine bigger gold when the water goes way way down. Looks like a job for dredging. Clean sites.

Went in fallowing the directions no problem finding center of the claim some of the markers have been removed by claims on each end I’m guessing . Snow melt prevented getting to the good spots but once you get to the water you can see places once the level drops that look promising! Did find color in first pan and garnets in the fallowing so haven’t lost hope I plan on going back when the Everett chapter goes later this month be advised the bank down from the road has very step drops recommend using a knotted rope ! And did see fresh bear and cat sign be prepared. The usfs campground money creek is open and rates are reasonable

Ran up there this morning, 4/22,2018, road closed to this claim - doesn't look like it's going to open up any time soon and no way around to get there.

This place was a tough go. The directions were good right up to the left at Eagle creek. There you have 2 choices. Stay right which is the lower road NSF152 unfortunately it comes to an abrupt end 2.1 miles from the main road. Blocked off intentionally 8 miles short. The first thing you see is a sign saying no prospecting, "Bismark Claim" which was well flagged. At this point I was unprepared. Once you leave the I-90 corridor about 10 mins after, no more smart phone help unless you download maps prior. or GPS works good for position. It was clear I needed more info, so I bailed and came home. Later I looked up this area with google earth looking for another way. I found NSF 2349, turn right here, 25 miles Or so later you come to NSF 1551 go left here and down. Signage is missing on some roads, vandalism. I took a few leaps of faith. The missing signs were either NSF 152 or NSF 1551 which is a loop rd of sorts. So NSF 1551 going down puts you on Casper creek, just below the confluence of Tributary creek. First thing I Saw there was another "no prospecting sign" But your in the area, the going is tough. You can see the old road, walking the creek bed is dangerous, I was alone, so I was super careful.

My overall opinions on this journey of discovery, are Leave nothing to chance, make sure your tires are in excellent shape, have a spare and a can of fixaflat, the farther in you go the sharper the rocks on the road are, 4x4s, fill your gas tank in Pritchard. Have alternate communication tools along with a loud side arm. "Cougars" I had 4 dogs with me so I didn't see any. Took some samples here and there, but never made it to the claim. This claim is remote is almost an understatement.
