warm springs placer I M C 16681

Thanks  Wallrat, as usual I tend  not to explain things very good, the forest service says the claim is only 12.5 acres, but claim posts are at 19 acres by the amendment of 2012, so telling us the claim is not right or it is not in alliquot parts because it follows the curve of the Salmon river at its high water mark.  They also say that it has all been mined out, but last samples had good gold in them. This claim has never missed a maintenance fee payment, and I filed a notice of intent to hold for 2014 because they did not want us in there. The biggest objections come from the Idaho Consevation League group. Hope to get in there and mine some of this year. Forum Index -> Welcome
