Postponed - The tour of the Stibnite Gold Project has been postponed to a future date, notably in the spring or early summer of 2019.

 

In the meantime, please keep a lookout in our newsletter and our website for an announcement regarding a small discussion group, at a later date, highlighting conservation vs development around Midas Gold,s Stibnite project

 

City Club of Boise Members will have the opportunity to tour the Stibnite Gold Project soon.

 

On the tour, we’ll visit the historic Stibnite Mining District and discuss its role in one of Idaho’s most important industries. We’ll see the former Stibnite town site and observe legacy features of the Stibnite Mine that are still visible today including the Yellow Pine Pit, the former Meadow Creek Mine and mill site, and associated tailings and heap leach facilities. At each of these stops, you will hear the history of the site and see the legacies that have been left behind. Representatives of Midas Gold will be on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding the proposed Stibnite Gold Project.

We will drive Warm Lake Road-Johnson Creek Road to Yellow Pine for lunch at The Corner Restaurant. The tour will take approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours.
