Talking with a 11 Claim owner, he is working at getting a permit to run a 5" Dredge up a creek that has never been touched in Colorado. He is currently completing the permits, and he needs people with dredging experience to work it. The creek is not large enough to support pontoons but anybody can rig up a wench or come along to move it forward. The pictures of the materials are unbelievable and I am pretty sure he will pay well since he has no dredging and only lode experience himself.
It will be a few months gig before Winter sets in and I don't know payment details. But if you are in need of work this might be a job to jump on if you have dredging experience. You will have to discuss that with him. Respond if interested and I will contact him for you, only after his approval can I give out his information.
