HISTORY OF AREA
The aquatic powerhouse of the Treasure Valley, the Boise River winds its way through several Idaho counties, providing opportunities for fishing, boating and other recreation along its banks. While the main Boise is considered a thoroughfare and not open to claims, there are several tributaries along the Boise River that are home to GOLD.
The placer deposits were worked first by dredges and then by large hydraulic washers. Sometimes entire hillsides were washed away. Individual miners resorted to panning with pans that resembled bread pans made of iron or tin. If they were lucky they also had the use of rockers and sluice boxes. Lode work was more erratic and less dependable; miners would work lodes for a few years until another fresh deposit was discovered in a different mining district within the Boise Basin and they would pull up stakes and move on. Mill sites worked in a similar way. Whole operations would be dismantled and reassembled again and again around the Boise Basin.
The Quartzburg Mining District was notable for its lode deposits. It’s still active today with the large and profitable Cumo Mining Project working the area northwest of Idaho City.
Several camps and towns were formed from the huge gold rush that took place when gold was found in the Boise Basin in the 1860s. Thanks to the largest gold rush in American history during the Civil War, Idaho City was founded and flourished. By 1863, it claimed over 6,000 residents, making it the largest city in the Northwest at the time. Other businesses were set up to serve the miners, but mining was the goal of the entire settlement. Mining was actually done _in _the boundaries of Idaho City. Houses collapsed because the foundations were mined out from underneath them! Though it burned a few times during it’s lively past, many of the historic buildings still stand today and can be visited by tourists and modern-day gold miners alike.
Gold Miners from all walks of life came to the region seeking out their fortunes and their own mining claims in Idaho. Americans from the East and Chinese worked the lands and those that couldn’t hack it as gold miners took up work as merchants and farmers. And their work paid off. The Boise Basin was the richest gold strike ever seen in America. More gold was taken out of the land during this rush than the California 49er or the Klondike gold rush.s a documented record of gold deposits.
