Good questions...from A to Z...
• How do I get mining claims appraised?
This year’s US Gold Panning Championships were held in Gold Bug Park, in Placerville, California. The competition site was set in the park’s pavilion among the trees and adjacent to the stream that runs through the park.
If you are interested in researching mining claims for any purpose, you will first have to decipher the BLM’s LR2000, a Rube Goldberg database seemingly designed by a 1980s Soviet-era computer hacker.
So, how much rain does it take to cause a major movement of gravels in a stream and redistribute the gold? The technical answer is enough water to move the bed load of the river.
I thought it might be worthwhile to take a look at the basics of this important mineral separation technique and how a miner can use it to recover the values out of an ore.
