  • Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an ore body, vein or (coal) seam. Materials recovered by mining include base metals, precious metals, iron, uranium, coal, diamonds, limestone, oil shale, rock salt and potash.





    placer gold
  • (n) Surface gold found in sand or gravel or "free metallic" "stream placer gold." Named after the Spanish word placer meaning "sand bank", or "alluvial deposit."

  • Placer mining (, also ) is the mining of alluvial deposits for minerals. This may be done by open-pit (also called open-cast mining) or by various forms of tunneling into ancient riverbeds.

How to Mine and Prospect for Placer Gold


How to Mine and Prospect for Placer Gold



Increased leisure time and increased interest in the out-of-doors is leading more and more families to experiment with placer mining of gold, and sometimes even to going on into small-scale production. This book supplies basic information on areas of occurrence, equipment needed, prospecting, sampling, mining, and regulations concerning the possession and sale of gold. Selected references are given for further study. Placer gold has tantalized many a person who has tried his luck and skill in the hope of striking it rich. Separating gold from embedded materials is basically simple, and can be done effectively on nearly any scale, depending upon the deposit and the capital available for investment. The final product is consistently in demand at a relatively stable price. Historically, however, one must be advised that rewards for the majority of small-scale miners-those who operate "on a shoestring"-have been depressingly small. First of all the placer miner must know where the placer deposits are located and he must have the technical knowledge to extract the gold. Additionally, he must face problems of land ownership, water supply, and water pollution, all of which have grown in complexity with the population. The costs of labor and equipment are relatively high now, although this may not seem significant to an individual mining a small deposit. Secondhand equipment may become available at relatively low cost because of a slowdown in construction or as surplus at the end of a war. By taking advantage of such opportunities, one can sometimes make an otherwise unprofitable operation successful, at least as long as the equipment holds up. To the novice or "weekend prospector," the more complex of placer mining may seem hard to comprehend. At any rate, the novice is often more interested in the recreational values offered by gold placering than in its profitability. Thus, the search for and discovery of even a small grain or nugget of gold is an achievement worth of considerable effort. As a start, the beginner may gain some benefit from visiting one of the many pan-for-a-fee tourist establishments typically found in gold-mining areas.

Quartzburg - not an option.




Quartzburg - not an option.





"You can't get there from here". At some point in time, it was decided that Quartzburg, Idaho should be expunged from this road sign. According to Cort Conley, there is nothing but mine tailing piles there now.

I drove through Garden Valley, Idaho on Monday and visited the pioneer cemetery while there. Then it was on to Iron Creek Campground where I camped for the night to get an early morning start on a hike up into the Sawtooth Mountain wilderness (Sawtooth Lake).

After I returned from a 10 to 11 mile enjoyable hike to Sawtooth Lake and up above it, I decided to return to Garden Valley, Idaho and make an 11 mile “side trip” up to Placerville, Idaho and back. Placerville is a colorful old mining town (as most were and are).

Fortunately, I was enjoying the drive so much that I missed my turn back down the South Fork of the Payette River to Garden Valley, and instead ended up in another mining town: Idaho City, Idaho. Serendipity. I drove around Idaho City a bit, and then took forest service roads up to Placerville, Idaho. There I “toured town” and the Placerville, Idaho pioneer cemetery.

I found the same wonderful ornate wrought iron grave-site enclosures that I had seen at Garden Valley the day before. I didn’t notice until I reviewed my photographs that there was an “emblem” on the gate of most of the enclosures and had I been a bit more observant, I would have known the person or company that did this beautiful work. A reason to go back.

The steep winding dirt road from Placerville down to Garden Valley was a joy to drive slowly with the window rolled down in my old pickup truck.

NOTE: In my photo stream I have chosen to upload my photos so that the Idaho City and Placerville, Idaho photos are close to the Garden Valley, Idaho photos. The photos of my hike into the Sawtooth Wilderness will be uploaded last. So photos aren’t in chronological order in this photo set.


[“Idaho for the Curious” by Cort Conley]
Excerpts from Conley’s fine book of the roadside history of the state of Idaho:

PLACERVILLE, IDAHO

“This was the first camp encountered by miners and freighters who entered the Boise Basin via the Payette River and Harris Creek. Because of the advantageous location, the settlement grew rapidly - to 3,200 by September 1863”.

“Gradually, Placerville’s fortunes diminished. The population at present would not fill a jury box. The Magnolia Saloon, once a fancy bar, contains the Henrietta Penrod Museum.”

“The community cemetery is one mile south of Placerville. It shelters a grave with a stout yellow pine growing at each corner. The small concrete slab carries this inscription: ‘Fiddler’s murdered in Ophir Creek’.”

“Two fiddlers played for a dance at Placerville; the next day they walked toward Centerville to fiddle at that camp’s dance. En route they apparently stumbled upon the murder of a miner who had been carrying gold. The murder then killed the fiddlers. When the three bodies were discovered, the whole Basin was outraged.” Conley then goes into more detail of the search for the culprit. In the end he states: “No one was ever indicted for the murder of the fiddlers”.

QUARTZBURG, IDAHO (The town painted over on the road sign in Placerville, Idaho)

“3 miles northwest of the Placerville intersection at Ophir and Granite Creeks. IN 1864 W.W. Raymond set up a ten-stamp mill on Granite Creek and developed the Gold Hill claim. This mine propped the camp for several decades. A forest fire in 1931 destroyed all but one building. Quartzburg is dead as last year’s leaves among the tailing dumps.”

IDAHO CITY, IDAHO
“This sleepy little town, with its grid four blocks by four, was once larger than Portland. It was, in fact, the largest town in the Pacific Northwest. In August, 1862, a prospecting party with Moses Splawn, Dave Fogus, and George Grames discovered placer gold seven miles northwest of what is now Idaho City. Grimes was shot, perhaps by Indians, and the party returned to Walla Walla. Their news made the area, known as Boise Basin (eighteen miles square), the scene of the biggest gold rush since California’s Mother Lode.” Conley continues with the rich and colorful history of the town and the miner’s who made it.

UPDATE: June of 2010 I received a comment from a flickr member, who at one time lived in Placerville. Since the story they told was so interesting to me, I thought I would paste their comment on all of my Placerville photos, so here it is:
