The Yankee Fork Gold Dredge was operated from 1940 until 1952 by the Snake River Mining Company. Billy, our tour guide for part of our visit, is the son of one of the dredge operators and told us some stories of visiting his father back when the dredge was in operation.
Billy and his family also own the townsite of Bonanza and were kind enough to allow us to explore the townsite during our visit.
