well the first thing you need to do is check the gold history of the place u intend to mine, I pressume your thinking dredging ? check theres enough gold in the river to warrant claiming it, talk to the locals , approach the surrounding landowners and make sure you have, gold an acsess agreement , also tracks and river flows , bedrock , campsites , secure safe places to leave gear , theres lots to consider when choosing a claim, do you need to fly gear in or can you get it there by 4x4 , when you have somewhere that ticks all the boxs, I recommend you talk to Vivienne Bull , she will help you with the application process , where u from?

Nelson so every now and there go up the Howard so if it’s not national park can it b claimed??

Im not really the person to ask, im thinking national parks not a good place to start , because there are only so many dredgable days in a season , dont go to far from your home, keep costs down, and dont go into it thinking youll get rich, do it because you want to have fun and get some gold
