  1. I think this is what they call "prospecting"..... How have you tested the top layers? Have you ran a half cubic yard through your box or just done sample pans? Do you have any indication of how far it is to bedrock? If it is more than a couple feet, you got a lot of work ahead of you! What makes you think you "may" have found the right spot in the first place? It doesn't sound like you know what is on bedrock..... More info and we might be able to help you better
  2. So, now it will be "Alaska Diving Supply"? No more mining? BTW, I use one of those tables and they work great.
  3. Flowdog, that was not the term I had heard. But thanks to everyone for the information. I made a call to BLM in Sacramento and they gave me this procedure.... First off, this is an association claim which requires 4 individuals. They said to remove the person that died with a Death Certificate and a letter from the surviving spouse stating that she is the sole heir to his estate. Then quitclaim her interest to both of my sons. They said they do not go by "percentage" of interest but by the number of individuals on the claim. In the end, I have 4 names on the claim.
  4. I don't believe there is an estate for the deceased husband. I think the surviving spouse takes ownership of everything. At least that is what I've seen happen. ?? I think there is a "term" for that but I don't know what it is.
  5. In my case, a husband and wife were on an association claim with me. The husband died and the wife wants out. She wants to give their interest to two of my sons. I guess we could do a Grant Deed but I thought you used Quitclaim deeds on claims?
  6. Has anyone come across a good quitclaim deed for transferring ownership of mining claims? This would be for California. Tons of forms on internet but was wondering if anyone found a specific one that worked great. Thanks.
  7. You are right about nothing being in the lower 8" or so. When I got my second LeTrap, the first thing I did was cut off the lower section. On the full length one, just before I got ready to empty it, I would flush out the bottom 4 riffles. That much less to pan.
  8. Not fun vacuuming up a broken glass vial of gold off the tile floor at home either!!
  9. this link might help.... http://new49ers.x10host.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=93
  10. A link to Texas State Park regulations: https://tpwd.texas.gov/publications/pwdpubs/media/pwd_br_p4000_0000a.pdf You will notice that metal detection is not allowed without a permit
  11. I have to assume you are saying that it is to weak to power a 5" dredge.... That setup certainly ran my 4" good.
