    Hello Jack I am interested in the same area. I live in Red Bluff CA. We are planning a trip to the east coast but if we are still here when you come to CA maybe we can get together. I have a sluice and panning equipment and a couple of metal detectors. My wife and I are always ready for an adventure...

    I have always wanted to do some dredging. Not happening in CA though. Where in Oregon are you located? I lived in Medford for awhile and did a little bit of sluicing around the Applegate area. That was before the dam...

    This is just a suggestion, a person can find some gold almost everywhere in California and this is true of most states. If a person is not finding any gold then they need to brush up on how to find fine gold and varied techniques for finding fine gold. If you are finding fine gold but deem that there is not enough that is very valid points to move from one place to another or look for better digs. Some of the age old ways to find gold to look at are: best spot to look for gold,  best method for spot you are in, best method to use, classification extreme for under 30 mesh, best method for meshes as fine size changes.



    I have been a few places where I was skunked did a lot of research and in each case found a reason, none of which was that it was not there except if you happen to get into a reclaimed pit mine area. To be fair I have found areas as I am sure most have that I deemed the location did not have enough gold for me to continue going to.
    If you notice an error in the Online Mining Guide or with claim information please add in the updated information into the online mining guide to inform other members. Thank You Walter H. Eason
