Q: If a high banker is outfitted with a suction hose, is it considered a dredge in CA even if it is sitting on the ground? Also, how do I find the best places to sell raw gold (flour, pickers, nuggets, gold in quartz, etc.)?
If it's gold, how should I clean it?
NOI or POO for small backhoe
Q: Do "corners" need to be in place on the ground for a claim to be valid?
I was informed, in a less than friendly manner, that I can only camp on the claim for 14 days of every 90.
Q: Will my detector react to fine gold?
Q: What are the advantages or disadvantages of hand crank vs. battery power vs. blower? And your preference?
