    FYI Just got off of phone with BLM CA. State Office. Guy said it will be mid October before the backlog of Maintenance payments and waivers will be caught up. I saw a friends finally posted he mailed last week of August. I've talked to two fools who said they arent submitting to BLM because...
  2. Power sluice California law question

    Not neccesarily true. I introduced a lobbyist to S. POE. ( worthless tool )they tried to make a seperate clarifacation Bill. Headed by assemblymen Bigelow. They pussed out and tabled it in commitee.
  3. Classification Over Riffles Question

    At least three times the size of the material making it through the screen and your riffles should only be the size of the material at most. I would only run raised expanded as riffles under that.
  4. Gold Ore

    doesn't matter what your claim is "registered" as. It's a claim the legalities of blasting have nothing to do with it being placer or lode.
  5. Gild Rush Expeditions , Any success stories????

    Run away and keep your money. 17.5 hours away from where? Ask questions here and you'll get on more gold and gain more insight about claims. And you won't have to pay a thing. GRE is looking for easy prey.

  12. Detecting Gold with a Cheap Detector

    I promise im not trying to discourage you. But, I wouldn't belive anything about gold dug until you see it your self. Not sure what part of the desert you are in. . But, if you want to detect gold you should be looking for evidence of shallow work. Stacked rock, shallow bedrock. lots of...
