    Washington states new gold mining laws ?

    Just finished reading the new laws, one paragraph has me puzzled " You may operate non-motorized mini high-bankers or other non-motorized concentrators only outside the wetted perimeter. You may not allow visible sediment or muddy water to enter the wetted perimeter. A second excavation site may be used as a settling pond." Any of you know how to run a mini high-banker without a motor and pump ?. I wonder if this is a miss print " non ", motorized mini high-bankers were legal in the last WDFW fish and gold book. I will be contacting them soon for clarification.

    After reading the new laws to the point of getting dizzy this what I have determined, mini high-bankers are legal and my new trommel I spent the last 3 months building is legal too. First the mini high-banker is not motorized but the water pump is and they allow a water pump with the proper screen to operate. As for the trommel it is a classifier not a concentrator, play with words I know but it is about the law.

    Just got a new update from Gold4Mike about the new mining laws, not good, they are banning all rain in Washington state because it pollutes the rivers.
