    Washington : No New Rules this Year !

    Notice to Mineral Prospectors (apologies if this is a duplicate message):

    We are contacting you because of your interest in the outcome of WDFW’s proposed Hydraulic Code rules relating to suction dredge mining in Washington.

    WDFW is postponing adoption of proposed rules that would require suction dredgers to obtain a standard written HPA prior to suction dredging in Washington. This means that suction dredging can continue under the Gold and Fish Pamphlet until further notice.

    No changes to the Gold and Fish pamphlet have been made. Mineral prospecting and mining within water bodies identified in the Gold and Fish table as “Submit Application” are not authorized under the pamphlet - you must obtain a standard written HPA to work in those water bodies. Likewise, if you want to conduct mineral prospecting or mining activities at different times or locations, or with different equipment than allowed under the pamphlet, you must apply for a separate, standard, written HPA.

    We will keep you informed of the scheduled date for adoption by the Commission. We recognize that implementing new requirements during the summer and early fall mineral prospecting seasons would be disruptive to miners. Therefore, adopted rules wouldn’t be effective until after October 31, even if the Commission votes to adopt the proposed rule between now and then.

    We will send you additional information as it becomes available. If you do not wish to be contacted further, please respond to this email with a request to be removed from future mailings. For more information, please contact Randi Thurston at randi.thurston@dfw.wa.gov. Information will also be posted on the HPA Rule Making web page.

    Download a copy of the June 2018 version of the Gold and Fish pamphlet.
