Rising to an elevation of more than 9,800 feet, Cariboo Mountain — visible north of here — has two of Idaho's highest gold camps.
Jesse "Cariboo Jack" Fairchild discovered gold high on Cariboo Mountain in August, 1870, and a mining rush from Utah followed in September. Production continued for two decades before the gold ran out. Millions of dollars worth of gold were taken from the gravels during that long period of successful mining.
