On February 6, 2015, Ranger Petersen signed a decision to approve Dalton's Delight Plan of Operations. The proponent will utilize a mini-excavator to remove sands and gravel then process materials with a small trammel or highbanker. This is a locatable minerals project with gold being the primary target.
The proposed project is located roughly 6 miles northeast of Idaho City, ID. The project site is located within the Elk Creek watershed with access from Forest Service 379A road.
