What/where can I find rules concerning prospecting? I have hunted elk, just outside of Lolo, in area 10 / 12, and was thinking of poking around in the creek there. Not sure of the exact name but by "Elk Meadows"

Answer

Information about prospecting for gold or other metals can be found at the website for the Idaho Department of Lands.
