Shirttail was worked heavily in the old mining years, but they didn’t clean it out. Present day prospectors and dredgers have done well, especially as Shirttail gets closer to the North Fork of the American.
I regularly get inquiries along the line of: “Hey, I found this rock, and I think it might be gold ore. How can I tell?” Prospectors are always on the lookout for gold-bearing rocks that may be the source of any nearby placer gold.
