Starvout Creek is a tributary of Cow Creek that drains the north- ern slope of Green Mountain. Three of the mines on this creek, the Ilarrah, Booth, and Curtis Brothers, have lately been in operation, but the Mizer and O'Shea only keep up assessment work. A large tract has been covered by these Placers near the present stream level, and they are reported to have been fabulously rich in the early days. The bedrock is slate except in the Curtis Brothers mine, which is near the contact of the slates, greenstone, and serpentine. Just beyond the western limit of the Riddles quadrangle, in Cow Creek canyon, are the Victory and Gold Flat Placers, or terraces, about 150 feet above the stream. A dozen miles farther down are the Cain and the Cracker Jack, on terraces over 500 feet above the creek. All these are important Placers formed under conditions in strong contrast with the gentle grade of Cow Creek above Glendale.

Our 20-acre placer mining claim is located a few miles Northwest Backer City a large town. This drainage has had abundant placer mining history from both bedrock and older Tertiary gravel deposits from the Creek.

Some of the amenities are:

A short walk down the hill to the creek.
Local gravels on bedrock.
Abundant, thick older gravel deposits.
Tree roots & grass clumps, downed trees, logs, etc.
Medium to shallow water.
Mining level: Recreational to intermediate.
Quiet and safe area; very beautiful.
Children and senior friendly - fun for all!
