    Leeches & ticks? You can have them and I've never seen one up here in the Fairbanks area but they could be there. I'm going to try a culvert, who knows, I could get lucky!

    Good luck to you!

    A GOOD TIME TO GET CULVERT GOLD IS WHILE A FEW INCHES OF WATER IS FLOWING THRU THEM. USE A CHIMNEY SWEEP TOOL TO BRUSH THE GOLD OUT INTO A CAPTURE BUCKET OR PAN. JUST DON'T GET ONE WITH COPPER BRUSHES. YOU WILL SPEND ALL OF YOUR CLEANUP TIME TRYING TO GET RID OF THE TINY PIECES OF COPPER. THEY MAKE THEM WITH FIBER BRISTLES. YOU DON'T HAVE TO MATCH THE SIZE OF THE CULVERT, JUST RAKE THE BOTTOM AND LET THE WATER HELP MOVE THE GOLD (AND EVERYTHING ELSE) OUT.
    IF YOU GO WHEN THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF WATER IS FLOWING YOU DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT PUSHING THE GOLD UP STREAM.

    GIVE IT A TRY. YOU MIGHT GET THEM ALL CLEANED OUT BEFORE THE OTHER GUY GETS THERE.

    GOOD LUCK.

    I've always wondered if a short piece of spiral culvert could be used as a reverse helix concentrator. Possibly the grooves might be too big.
