How to File a Gold Mining Claim | Gemologist Sam

I'm not sure what the stipulations are regarding the land you stake it on though, or what you're allowed to do once you stake a claim.
I appreciate the links Dave.

Back in the day some mines used to use high pressure fire hoses to wash down the sides of mountains into a sluicebox. I can't remember what that technique was called though.

As far as diverting a river though, good luck with that one. You'd have every animal right activist all over you claiming that you're endangering some rare frog or the likes. Even if you managed to get a dredge in there and vacuumed it out with scuba gear, you'd still deal with that mess.

I know that GPAA had claims all over the states, I haven't checked into what a membership goes for these days though. At least on a claim, you can tell people that you're allowed to be there!
With my limited knowledge on the subject, I believe that type of hydrolic mining was outlawed way back in the late 1800's.

When I was a wee bit younger and dumber, I went along with another twit to some expired Mine Shafts near Eaton Canyon (north of Altadena, top of Lake St,--old Mt. Wilson Road area in the latter 70s) to "discover" much Gold Flake, except of course to be informed by other would be Panners/Hikers that we had stumbled upon a large cache of PYRITE or FOOLS GOLD.
4+ hours wasted gathering two gallon containers of sand, but we did have a good hike both ways, so it wasn't entirely a lost day.
