Suction Dredge Study
November 2008 by Jerry HobbsFor many years, the small miners and in particular the suction dredge miners have complained about the lack of unbiased sound science available to refute the garbage science that is being used by government agencies to regulate us to near extinction.
It starts out innocently enough…
Outside of Butte, Montana, going north on I90, you’ll pass through a landscape where the old Anaconda mining company processed thousands of tons of ore twenty years ago. We meant to fish in the vicinity of this historic mining district though we knew it is a Federally classified Superfund site for reclamation now.
Steve got his first nugget within minutes of turning on his metal detector. It only took me about an hour to find my first piece.
Although one of the smaller states in Australia, Victoria can lay claim to being the richest, especially in regards to large nuggets. An almost endless discovery of massive specimens highlighted the early years of gold mining here.
The Forest Service is attempting to close off historic trails and roads throughout the western states, declaring the closures are part of a travel management project. They state their motivation is to control damage caused by off-highway-vehicles.
