Gold in New Hampshire
March 2002 by Edgar B. Heylmun, PhDNew Hampshire, one of five New England states, has an area of 9,351 square miles, a bit larger than Kern County, California. It is a playground for people who live in the large urban areas in the East.
The article that appeared in the October 2002 Issue of ICMJ, “Confessions of a Professional Nuggetshooter,” by Lunk, is an example of how to use a “deep-seeking-type” metal detector to lay down a grid pattern to “mine” eluvial placer gold after prospecting and finding the first nugget as the locus.
Q: Can and should you remove their poles and notice right then and there or should you wait until you have convinced them of their trespass?
When governments are hit by a barrage of such economic news, they usually react by attempting to stimulate economic activity by spending money, as some might say, “like drunken sailors”…
As the ground thaws and dries out and the warmth of spring starts to settle in, it’s time to start afresh with a new prospecting season.
Oregon Independent Miners president, John Holleman, has advised ICMJ that legislation important to the Oregon small miner, sponsored by his organization, has been signed into law.
The miner was drywashing using a small, gas-powered drywasher for a short period of time—maybe an hour—when he was asked by a ranger to see his permit, which is not required to prospect at this small of a scale.
