Re: Floating sluice

It works! Yippee!!!!! I made a short visit to the Sluice Box claim and was able to set up my sluice and operate it for a couple of days before returning home. The river level was high and the water fast, so I did not stay long, nor did I recover much gold, but didn't expect to. I though the river cu...

Re: JUNE OUTING

June 22 & 23, 2019 according to the website. I do not know for sure, but I think it may take place on the Sluice Box claim (K-13). It would be a good idea to double-check that information. I think I have studied every rock on the claim with Google Earth while preparing for my visit there in a few da...

Re: Underwater sluicing ........

Well, crap! I was hoping you were onto something great. I'll be headed to the claim in a few days with my sluice, metal detector, and big hopes. There are moments when it just feels like defeat and it makes me think of just giving up because I know the limitations are so severe for us, but despite a...

Re: sluicing

I asked the same question recently and Dave recommended I try the Sluice Box claim (K-13) just west of Seiad Valley. I'll be there around the end of the month for about a week. I have studied the claim as much as humanly possible with Google Earth and feel like I am familiar with every rock on the s...

Re: Using handheld suction device (bilge pump)

I read the regulations as; No motor, no problem... Those folks carrying badges may disagree, but I'd be surprised if anyone said it was a problem. Keep in mind that I am just another clown on the internet and not a lawyer or a smart person you can bet on, but that's my opinion. If I had such a devic...

Happy Camp weather

I have been keeping tabs on the Happy Camp weather recently as I prepare for my visit later this month. I sure hope to see some sunshine, blue skies, and warm weather when I get there. I bet Dave is wishing he could have stayed away for another couple of weeks. I imagine this is quite a change from ...

Re: Info

I won't make it down until the end of the month. Time is just dragging by... I wish you lots of luck and hope you find lots of gold! Have fun and be safe! https://drive.google.com/file/d/18L9sLj ... sp=sharing
