Idaho Mining Towns


Idaho Mining History

Idaho had a modest gold industry that resulted in it being the 10th largest gold producer among western states. Much more significant is Idaho's silver industry. The Silver Valley area of northern Idaho is one of the largest silver districts in the United States. The Silver Valley has been mined continuously for more than 125 years.
