Thanks again for sharing. Enjoy watching all your videos. Are you on a claim or is this open land? Trying to plan a trip up north. Here in So Cal all we can find is tiny gold and flakes.

I know all about the dry wahes. That's all we do down here in So Cal. The only flowing stream we have is closed to prospecting do to some endangered species BS, we still go once in while . On the dry washes we bring water with us to wet screen the material down to 3/16 and that's what we bring home to run on my home made drop riffle sluice or dip box.

Good luck and look forward to more videos.
