Hi all,
I have been running a GB2 for a couple of years. It is great, and I have a little bit of gold as a result. All of it came out of Oregon. I'm having trouble finding a nice spot in Idaho that doesn't take 5 hours to get to. I live in Boise, which gets me quick to the Boise basin placers. Access is very poor, most of it is private or claimed. Any thoughts as to good locations in southern Idaho?

Thanks,
Des

I know there are places in Silver City, ID, but you would probably have to pay for access to a claim, that should be a two hour drive for you, but I think the Boise basin placers are probably more extensive?
