The spring of 2016 was unseasonably warm early so we decided to dredge in the middle of May. When we arrived it was pleasant and our first day was beautiful, that night it started raining and then it rained all the next day. We had to pull the dredge out of the river because it started to rage. Late that afternoon the weather started to clear but then that nigh it got cold. When w...

7 Replies and 12415 Views AZ dredge permit.  12415  7 Started by  nevkid Talked to the BLM   and Corp of Engineers and both said they don't issue dredge permits. The Engineers kept telling me the claim is the one that gets the permit and anyone can work under it.  Never heard anything like that and just wondering where the permits are available from what dept.  This is small mining not commercial and that is where directed to find info.

1 Replies and 5004 Views Could you measure your dredge baffle to help me with a homemade one?  5004  1 Started by  uoduck  Hello all! I have a 3' keene highbanker/ dredge and I would like to add a baffle. Since it did not come with one originally I am curious what material is usually used for baffles I am thinking of using a 1/4' EPDM rubber mat but I am curious how thick the mats that generally come with dredges are. If someone with a stock baffle could measure the thickness I would appreciate it. Thanks!
