As of August 14, 2017 the Forest Service has closed the area around at least two of our propecting claims (Kaymack King and Kaymack Queen). They have done this due to what they are calling the Pioneer Wildfire Recovery Project. The Forest Service has contracted with logging companies to come into the area and cut down/remove some of the more dangerous burned out trees that have resulted from the fire of 2016. Their closure memorandum indicates the area and camping will be close UNTIL December 31, 2018.
A miner can access our claims only after getting permission from the Idaho City Ranger Station. To get an authorization, prior to traveling to the claims, send an email to MELISSA SWAIN telling her your plans. She wants to know where you are going, when you are going, how long you will be there, how many persons will be with you and any other important details that will help her decide on giving an authorization. She needs this in advance so she can coordinate with the "Timber Sale Administrator." He will decide on whether there is a safety concern that will prevent authorization.
Her phone number is 208-392-3719
