This is a 20 acre lode mining claim. The main mine is a 237 foot adit with an average height of 6 feet and averaged width of 4 feet.


Bay Horse Mining District, Custer County, Idaho, USA.


An 18 foot long and narrow culvert leads into the Juliette mine. The culvert has a gate 5’ into the culvert. Beyond the culvert is a partially collapsed, timbered entrance into the mine. The mine consists of very deformed, carbonate-based host rock that is very crumbly, damp and somewhat unstable. No wildlife was observed directly in the mine, though we did notice rodent droppings.

At 26 feet into the mine there is old cut timber supporting the southeast wall. At 34 feet, the timbering begins on both sides of the mine and overhead. Likely a staging and prep area for the miners. The timbering ends at 39 feet. Prior to the timbering the hostrock is very deformed with in individual bedding planes, but has overall homogenous strike and dip. There is substantial evidence of gold and iron ores. After the timbers the rock seems less deformed, this is probably just one cycle of alternation of deformation. At 53 feet there is good sized stope where gold in quartz can still be identified. It appears there was likely good silver and some copper that was cut out of this stope. There is more work and ores that could be worked from this stope.

Again at 120 feet there is another large stope measuring at least 14 ft. long, and 16 ft wide. The ores in this stope are similar to the stope prior and show quartz and gold primarily. The veins containing the gold ores are from 2 inches to 7 inches in width At 157 feet there is another large stope, similar in construction, chasing along the vein running the spine of the mine. The stope is 10 feet long and 14 feet wide. It contains many, many small veins with good gold ore running in the quartz. This section appears less worked than the previous stopes.

The last working area is at 178 feet, where there is a large overhead stope with very nice timberwork. This is the largest of the stopes and shows only 3 large quartz veins with some tiny visible gold. At 189 feet there are some more timbering supports, which are spaced at 5 feet intervals. The mine ends in a collapse at 237’. There is a light bit of air flowing through the mine indicating there is another entrance or airv ent somewhere beyond the collapse.

The air in the mine was stable and good and did not trigger the gas monitors. It was overall stable with some sections of sluffage. The collapse at the 237? point appears to be very deliberate and would require a shovel and a good days work to clear.

There is another mine on the claim that was not explored, it is an adit that has been closed with foam and has a false wall built up in front of it.


Host/wall rock:
soft sediment deformation in what is probably a combination of shale and limestone with dolomite.

Mineral deposits:
Calcite veins, Iron staining, gold in small deposits, copper and copper derivatives along with lead, quartz and some possible lead.


North of Sun Valley on highway on 93 west of the Salmon River a few miles is Bay Horse, a town that was almost a ghost town before it got started. Hopes for another gold mine to rival the mine at Leesburg faded quickly when only a small amount of gold was found. In the process, however, a rich vein of silver was discovered and Bay Horse had its start in the early 1870s. The most productive years were in the 80s and 90s. Operations continued until 1915 and then were shut down and the town abandoned. Today charcoal ovens that were used to make charcoal for the smelter and old buildings can be found along the dirt main street of Bay Horse.

Bay Horse got its start 1864 when a few small gold veins were found and a small camp began. Though there are several tales of how the settlement came by its name, the most popular is when area prospectors met a miner who had been digging between Clayton and Challis with the help of two bay horses. The man told the others that he had discovered rich mining opportunities up a steep canyon on the north side of the Salmon River. Because the other prospectors couldn’t remember the man’s name, they simply referred to him as the “man with the bay horses” and the name stuck.

Though prospectors continued to comb the area for the next several years, finding small amounts of gold, it wasn’t until 1872, that the Bay Horse area really began to attract numerous miners when three men by the names of W.A. Norton, Robert Beardsley and J.B. Hood discovered a rich vein of silver. Robert Beardsley and his brother soon started the Beardsley Mine which overlooked the mining camp. When a prospector named Tim Cooper found another rich silver vein, he started the Ramshorn Mine. Other mines soon followed and within months, men, machinery and cabins quickly flooded the area. The size of the mining camp increased again in 1877 when hard rock mining began for silver and lead. By the following year, the mine was operating on a large scale, with numerous tunnels spread throughout the area. A stamp mill and smelter were completed in 1880.

Bay Horse’s peak years were during the 1880’s and 1890’s, when the hillsides were dotted with cabins and the town included numerous saloons, boarding houses, assay offices, banks, a stone Wells Fargo building, a post office, six beehive kilns to make charcoal for the smelters, several ore and timber mills, and two cemeteries. The town’s population reached a high of about 300 residents.

The Ramshorn Mine remained productive until 1888, at which time other mines were also declining. By 1896, the beehive kilns were abandoned and in 1889 the town was struck by a fire which destroyed several buildings. Over the next decade more mines closed and people began to leave the area. By 1915, all mining operations had ceased and Bay Horse had become a ghost town.

In the next several decades, mining operations were revived periodically for short periods, the last time in 1968. Over the years, the Bay Horse Mining District was one of the longest running silver and lead producers in Idaho.


The Bay Horse Creek road that leads up towards the Juliette claim is a good, gravel 2wd accessible road that will get you within a mile of the claim. Then there is an ATV or hiking-sized trail that leads to the claim. We found a good staging area with limited room on a flattened area on top of the tailings pile and road grade. ATVs are the ideal form of transport to the mine and there is no traffic in the area, so it would be an ideal staging spot for a truck and trailer.

We also found an old miner’s cabin with a metal roof that has been repaired and reused a few times. Its estimated to be 130 years old and last used approximately 70 years ago. It has been worn down by the elements. We saw little trace of any traffic to the site. The area has great scenery with the road leading up to the claim following a meandering stream valley. The narrow stream valley is flanked on both sides by mostly grassy and shrub-covered mountains. There is a creek just east of the Juliette claim that flows north into Bay Horse Creek, and plenty of wood.
