    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    Recreational Dredging and Sluicing in AF Canyon can be done between July 1 and October 15. I'm pretty sure you can go panning anytime. The forest service gates the road to Mineral Basin (most years) until 30 May. You can still get up there but it would be with smaller recreational vehicles i.e snowmobile. You need a RD&S permit which is free at:

    AF is a great place to go. Lots of flour gold but you'll work for it!

    Hope the weather breaks soon!

    Take care.

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    I'm glad you posted that link to the sluice permit. I had been using my sluice box a few places until I learned about that law. I had no idea you couldn't use a sluice box just anywhere. There are only a few streams in Utah where you can legally use one. The permit is free, but you must have it. They are also only good for a couple of months. I guess if I joined a club I would find out that kind of information before I get myself a ticket.

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    I plan on trying Mill Creek. It's on I70 east of the I15 junction. The other places I have tried I wasn't supposed to use a sluice. Mostly I've used it to run small amounts of rock that I sampled from different mines.

    The permit is good for a year but it limits your activities to 45 days. Not sure how they would keep track of that. If your prospecting leads you to places that are not listed as part of the RD&S permit you can always submit a stream alteration permit and hope that it gets approved.

    Good place but be aware that most of the area is under claim.

    Re: gem hunting in Utah?

    Cool! Sounds good! I would enjoy going up that way.

    I made a trip to beaver dam wash with the UGPC today. I didnt have much luck, but there was one person that got a nice little piece about the size of rice. So there is gold! I just have yet to find it. :P lol

    How did the group operation do? I went with the UGPC last year to Notch Peak and worked the group dig and was somewhat disappointed.

    They didn't find a good place to even bother setting up for a common.
    So they just spent the weekend looking for a place.
