Great vid brother! My buddy and I live in Coeur d'Alene and are just
getting into this kind of stuff... thanks!

Author KicknStep (4 years)
@2bornot2b1984 It did indeed change its course, I forget the name of the
company - but the whole valley floor was dredged which then pushed the
river to the south sloping side of the valley. The remnants that are up
this far, however, are from years and years of erosion. Also check out
information on 'Glacial Lake Missoula' for an interesting read on quick

very informative and well done!

Thanks for posting dude.

Author KicknStep (4 years) means you've been in the mountains to damn long.

Author mountainaire7 (6 years)
definately tertiary...but random buckets of dirt probably won't get you
much...the bedrock rule still applies. they used to bulk out these channels
with monitors (hydraulic)and wash through a huge sluice. when that was
outlawed, they would "coyote" along the bedrock.

Author AuggieDogProduction (5 years)
Great Info. I wish other prospectors would take the time to share info. At
the beginning you said you were in North Idaho and later that it was a
place gold had been found before. Any chance you are in the Murray area? I
prospect up there all the time. I'm still poor though. Make some more gold
prospecting videos!!

Hi Jim! I don't get the opportunity to prospect much anymore unfortunately.
Miss it like crazy, and if I had my way.. I'd have a permanent residence up
there somewhere. I do live near CdA lake... but closer to Fernan lake.

now can i purchas you jeeps front right hand indicators as i cant seem to
get any . many thanks

Author KicknStep (4 years)
I suppose I'm not, but water erosion is pretty obvious - and very easy to
decipher in the surrounding landscape. Glacial deposits aren't so subtle.
But .. heck I'm open to any theories. :)

Author KicknStep (6 years)
Absolutely. Seems to be the best vehicle for the job. Actually.. Jeeps are
just the damned best 4x4 around. . . And xj's are awesome.

hey man thanks for taking the time to make this video. its very helpful!
especially to the beginner. hoping to find gold around pocatello!

Author slaintefilms (5 years)
Here's some information for you Carter... There are gold occurrences in
Macon, Adair, Livingston, Linn, Putnam, Randolph and Schuyler counties.
These occurrences are the results of glacial moraine deposits, originating
in Canada. There is a strong possibility that gold may occur in all
counties north of the Missouri River. Look for shallow or exposed bedrock
in streams and rivers of this region that have the water flow and vertical
drop necessary to concentrate placer gold. "Glacial Drift"
