    California Highbanking?

    I've tried to read all the info on here regarding the rules for Highbanking in CA.....I am I right in thinking it is legal as long as I'm 100 yards from the stream or river and no water is going directly back in to the stream or river? I'm getting my stuff ready to head to the Motherlode and am trying to determine my plan of attack and equipment I will be bringing.....

    Bring $25,000 plus $250 for each gallon of water dirtied in accordance to waterboards bs. Being enforced if ya care as a 15 minute observence prior to ticket presentation is good for almost a mill in fines NOT a yahoo. Err on the side a caution as ifn' ya can't pay the fine or do the time your outta there. Go anywhere but insane kalif,waterboards bs posted here with links by Gold Hog-John

    Go on the New 49er club claims as Dave says it is OK and to back it all up is going to pick up the tab on all fines, fees, and legal rep (not saying his laywer is worth a crap but..)
    Before I took him up on his "Fantastic" offer I would get it in writing and notorized. Can't be too safe as Hoser has it right as always. Major Waterboard BS.

    Best of Luck either way KW!

    Hoser, I posted some links on this forum about WB permit BS and what not also but who is this Gold Hog you speak of?
    Or did you have a senior momento? or yet another should I say- LOL Gravel Hog (Not Gravel Washer or Gold Hog or any other Hog)

    Gravel Hog - Hog'n that crap up as the gold nugs be at the very bottom waiting for me and No Sharing when I have the dang nozzle. (till I get wore out, a'course)

    Finding GOLD
    For whatever its worth, we highbank in the area northeast of Coulterville, the rule up there is wet to wet, and dry to dry. Most of us are digging a holding pond to filter all waters before they could ever return to any streambed. We work fairly close with the FS in this area and have had no problems. Who knows what these water resource nazis will come up with. For whatever reason the enforcement folks up in the northern part of the state seem to have a serious bug up their butt. Best of luck, and Happy Hunting

    Court makes it tougher on small-time gold miners

    A federal appeals court ruling Friday makes it tougher for small-time gold miners to work their claims on federal lands across the West.
    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in a split decision that the U.S. Forest Service has to consult biologists from other agencies before allowing miners to do anything that might harm salmon protected by the Endangered Species Act. The ruling overturned a District Court decision.
    The case was brought by the Karuk Tribe in Northern California as part of a longstanding battle to protect struggling salmon from mining on the Klamath River. The tribe traditionally depended upon the salmon for food.
    "The Forest Service's decision to place the search for minuscule flakes of gold above the needs of people who rely on clean water, and especially wild salmon, was unconscionable," Leaf Hillman, director of natural resources for the Karuk Tribe, said in a statement.
    A mining group said the ruling makes it virtually impossible for people to use suction dredges on rivers through federal lands with protected species. The dredges are gasoline-powered vacuums that suck the gravel from river bottoms and concentrate the gold.
    Jerry Hobbs, president of Public Lands for the People in San Bernardino, Calif., said most miners will not be able to afford the high cost of environmental reviews required to get approval. He predicted about 100 miners would go ahead and use their dredges illegally, because state and federal authorities are not likely to enforce any ban.
    The ruling comes on top of a moratorium issued by the California Legislature against using suction dredges to mine for gold. The moratorium, which expires in 2016, grew out of another lawsuit brought by the tribe demanding tougher state controls over suction dredges.
    The Forest Service had no comment.
    The Klamath Tribe's lawsuit came after a district ranger on the Klamath National Forest in 2004 approved plans by the New 49ers gold mining club and three miners to use dredges to mine for gold.
    The appeals court ruled that a low-level approval process known as filing a notice of intent amounted to an agency action covered by the Endangered Species Act. It also found that the mining clearly met the legal hurdle of "might affect" critical habitat for salmon, triggering consultation with biologists for the NOAA Fisheries Service, which oversees protected salmon. The court noted that consultation in some cases could be handled informally, without an extensive review.
    A dissenting justice wrote that the mining was already approved by the 1872 Mining Act, and the approval of a notice of intent did not qualify as a separate agency action triggering consultation

    Maybe folks in that area should start making some noise about their proposed casino and what negative effects it will have on the community.

    Craig Tucker phd. Coordinator for the Karuk tribe...or so his title is as I have read in our local paper..office address i believe is in San Francisco...he or rather his office is the one's doing most of the lawsuit filings for the Karuck tribe. And if what I have read in the past is right...he is one of the founders of the Klamath River Keepers. you guys should visit their site if you haven't already....it'll make you just sick.....mainly cause the venom they spew forth from that site ppl just lap it up like milk in a saucer Klamath Riverkeeper
