    Nice, that's some rich sand to get that much out of just a couple gallons. It's amazing how small of gold it'll retain....it's almost fool proof.....till I get my hands on it
    I'm a drinker with a heavy prospecting problem and I'm out of dirt again

    Can you run the Gold Cube on the beach down there in Cali?
    Here any powered equipment must be above the vegetation line. The black sand here is rich! Around Nesika beach especially. Whaleshead creek has a lot of water this time of year so my beach sluice is happy.







    Freedom is something that dies unless it's used.


    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life.

    I didnt ask, the beach i am on is county owned but i am bringing the sand home and running it which is a pain but o well. The spot i am at there was a beach placer mine here long ago and the sand so far has been really rich for me too. I have watched some videos on youtube about gold beach thought about giving it a try until i seen how good the sand is treating me here

    Gold beach/Nesika beach ha A LOT more then that. Problem is not a lot of creeks for a beach sluice, and I can carry about 2-3 gallons of black sands max. Wet black sand is heavy. This is my next purchase. Sections of Nesika beach have 1-2 OZ per ton. The local sporting goods store here they are prospectors/miners. They are at Nesika beach a lot. They also sell pans, classifiers, sluice boxes, gold suckers, high bankers, dredges and they did have a large trommel.

    Sounds like fun but there is no where to run a gold cube legally Without packing hundreds of pounds long distance? I have a BGT but thats no good for beach prospecting. I watched a video on youtube where these two guys were just before or just after gold beach and they were running a Goldcube on the beach and there was some sort of water source

    My understanding is no powered equipment on the beach except above the vegetation line. I have seen a beach sluice 24" by 6' set up near a culvert. I have a Keene A52 with ribbed matting only. Works well. My 5 gallon buckets 1/2 full weigh well over 100 pounds. I remember years ago 4 wheelers all over Nesika beach! That would be the way to go. Of course the price of gold was.......low back then.

    According to the excerpt of Oregon Shore Recreation Rules shown below, beach sand removal is limited to 20 gallons per year! Pretty ridiculous to say the least.

    (9) A person may engage in recreational prospecting as provided in this section. However, the department may restrict disturbance or removal to specific areas of the ocean shore state recreation area, by quantities of material, and by time of year.

    (a) A person may remove sand from the ocean shore state recreation area for personal prospecting use. A person may remove a maximum of one five-gallon volume container per day; for up to 20 gallons per person per calendar year.

    (b) Equipment is limited to hand-operated instruments;

    (c) A person may not use motorized equipment, including solar, battery operated pumps, or other similar motorized devices;

    "Removal for Personal Use:
    (B) Sand: no more than a five-gallon volume container per person per day; up to 20 gallons per person per calendar year. beach sand removal is limited to a total of 10 gallons of sand per year." Here is where the quote came from: Oregon Secretary of State Archives Division

    OOPS I forgot to remember this the last time I was there.
    Sure. I have seen people on Nesika beach standing in a hole 5 feet deep. Running a sluice using sea water. major no-no X3.

    35 miles or so. Ask at Lorings lighthouse sporting goods store. The one employee has spent a lot of time up there. Mention my name! I grew up with him. Whaleshead is a lot closer. wear boots, cross the creek 1/8 of a mile....black sand.
