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 site.... except the Google Earth satellite photo was taken in July, 2015. Call me suspicious if you want, but I suspect someone has been moving some of those rocks since then. Anyway, I am going to check it out as soon as possible and will report back when the trip is done. I am sure there are many places where you can sluice. Hopefully more folks will offer advice. Good luck with your prospecting!
