    Wilderness area..I could understand.
    If you could file a claim on the part of the river he is talking about you would need to post an armed guard to defend your mineral rights as there is a lot of mining activity there.

    I can understand that. I've seen private property get destroyed from shirtbags locally. The owners just seem to give up.

    Something that would be interesting is to use a waterproof carrot detector and search for pockets of lead.
    Should be some gold too.

    I wonder if the Falcon detector can work for sniping?

    I have an SDC 2300 that would work for that. Not extremely compact for sniping but it can go underwater. I just don't have underwater headphones.

    It works on dry cracks the probe is waterproof.

    I wouldn't bring mine near water for fear of it falling in.

    The trick to sniping is letting the water do the work. it isn't hard or slow going to move from crack to crack fanning scraping and puffing.

    Using a pinpointer and passing over cracks that don't give a tone. Is a sure fire way to leave gold in cracks.

    Good video. I used to have a "vac pac". 5 gallon bucket with a echo leaf blower motor on top with a shop vac hose. Bought it from a guy in Marysville but don't know if he is still in biz. It came with a aluminum frame pack that bungie's to bucket.
    Keep it up. I've been rewarded with some nice clinkers.
