    Where would you mine on my claim and why ?

    This is my claim on the Klamath River, about 2 miles upriver from Happy Camp, California. Now I placed numbers and letters on the map so you can reference where you would mine. One thing I have learned threw out the years is to value other miners opinions and by learning from them makes me a better miner. Thanks

    Where would you mine on my claim and why ?

    With a Bend that big, you are looking at a lot of historical material flow. Depending on when the best gold was moving in the river, there could be hot spots almost anywhere in that pic. Lucky you!

    That said, I would definitely try the line of q-x-4-13-22 on my first visit. At looks like a line which is only affected in big water and is likely hard packed since it's resisting erosion from what I can see.

    #6 oh wait there's no 6, between y & 5 looks like the water in the split channel was farther inland than it is now.
    using the slider in google earth between 2005 and 2009 it really changed

    there was a new49'ers video I saw the other day of the layers to look for.

    I'd be mining underwater to bedrock. Find a crevice in the bedrock. The crevice will have the most gold. I have the same kind of claim on the Arkansas river.

    I would start looking by N and O first.

    Then head over to 16.

    Next between 23 and 28.

    Then down to 25 and 26.

    The 17 and 18.

    Back over to V.

    Then investigate for probable areas between the square of A B K J.

    Likely just run my GPZ over everything from 4 5 27 triangle, and maybe look further if found anything.

    That is what I would start with on land. Can you use machinery. If working it alone then not spend more than three days prospecting each spot, get your numbers and figure out what you going to chew up first and last.

    Water; do not know what you laws are there. But I would deal with the water last, however I have only been hobby dredging with a 4 inch for the past 13 years and that has only been at best 6 weeks a year and worst 3 weeks a year.

    Why not just grid the claim and start sampling? That's what professional miners do and it really does work.

    If that sounds like more work than you want to do I'd go with okbasspro. Dredge it and if Dave and his gang give you any grief use one from his playbook and shoot them a moon from your dredge.

    Might as well start in the river to the left of l where the boulder is sticking up out of the water. Run up along both sides of the boulder and see what you come up with. That looks like a claim choked with tailings below the bend. Then, if there's 3 or 4 ounces right there at the boulder, I would sample the whole thing. If there's an ounce or less, sell it because it's been worked out.
