Boise Company Discovers Gold in Rural Owyhee County


Build a road, find some gold. That's pretty much the latest report from Boise's Thunder Mountain Gold at its South Mountain property in Owyhee County.

Thunder Mountain reports "positive sampling" of gold in more than 100 samples cut along two miles of exploration road. The company says it will begin exploration drilling by mid-September.

Owyhee County's South Mountain Mining District saw gold discoveries dating back to 1868 and was mined into the 1950s.
