IRON CREEK AND NORTH FORK OF IRON CREEK ROADS 7-19-17
The Forest Service wants to inform users of Forest Service Roads 60045 (Iron Creek) and 60056 (North Fork of Iron Creek) that exploration drilling and other mine-related activities are occurring on private (patented) lands in the area. The Forest Service has a right-of-way through these private lands, located on the Salmon-Cobalt Ranger District. However, the operators must comply with Mine Safety and Health Administration requirements to protect the public from potential hazards on the privately-owned properties.
Forest Road 60045 is still open to public travel, but users are required to stay on the road and not exit their vehicles while travelling through the site. When approaching the site, approximately 9 miles upstream from the mouth of Iron Creek, be aware of heavy equipment operating and company personnel on foot in the area. If the road is blocked by equipment or personnel, stop and wait until you are directed by the operators to proceed.
The berm on Forest Road 60056 will be removed or relocated to allow continued access on that route. Users should be aware of private land boundaries in the area, and avoid entry without authorization.
