That's pretty much how I operate up there. Last year I worked a section of the River that is very remote. 40-45 miles west of Happy Camp, on the Klamath. I prospect with buckets, classifiers, pans, scoops, shovel, crevicing tools, and sometimes my metal detector. Occasionally I'll use the small Dewalt to clean out some exposed bedrock and moss. I have no equipment with me that raises suspicion or concern. I'm in an area that one can't hike into. Sheer cliffs on both sides and on the far side of the river. I launch a small boat with a trolling motor and go approx 1/2 mile upstream to get there. I take my classified buckets back to camp where I'll run them through a Gold Hog multi sluice, in a closed recirculating series of tubs filled with water and circulated with a 12 v pump. Everything legal and above board. My partner and I keep to ourselves and go about our business without concern or bother from others. Actually, it was a fantastic place to spend 5 months last year during the height of the covid lockdowns. Unfortunately, the Slater fire roared through Happy Camp last October, forcing the wife, dog, and myself to evacuate to Yreka, but that's another story for another forum.
