    i have been out of the mining and prospecting for a few years and i am getting back into it.  i know in CA dredging is not allowed.

    my question, is a rocker box with a water source feeding the top of the box allowed in CA?

    if a rocker box is allowed in CA then what set-up bellow would be allowed.

    this would be set-up wit the output pouring back into the stream. (set-up 1)

    this would be set-up with the output pouring into a settling pond next to the stream. (set-up 2)

     the rocker box with no water source with output pouring  out along the side of the stream. (set-up 3)

     

    thank you for any help you are able to give me.

    You can run a rocker box in any manner as long as there is no mechanical devices attached to it .It has to be hand fed.

    With highbankers, the dept of fish and wildlife does not want to see the discharge going back into the stream/river.
    I would think they would have the same opinion on anything discharging back into the stream/river.
    A rockerbox however moves way less material than a HB will, but would run the discharge into a pond just for sake of argument and making for an pleasant outing if DFW shows up unannounced.

    Thank you for the information. I will build a slam retaining settling pond next to the river.
