California dredging permit's?

Any news yet? I haven't seen anything posted on the water board website yet.

Re: Mining on the Salmon River

I used to have a claim up past the ranger station, but Clinton took my claim and a bunch of other ones and turned it into wilderness back in 1996. Really sucked because when I was dredging it I was averaging about 2 ounces a day.

Re: Mining on the Salmon River

That sucks, what's the point of even owning a claim with mineral rights that you aren't allowed to retrieve. Plus you have to pay yearly to keep the claim, they keep the money and don't let you mine.

Mining on the Salmon River

I own a claim on the Salmon River, haven't done anything with it since 2009. I am hoping that we can dredge this year. But I was wondering what are we allowed to use to mine right now? Highbanker?, Mini Trommel? Stream sluice? I can't understand the definitions of the type of equipment allowed aside...
