We have mainly stuck to recrational panning and sluicing so far but were looking to take it to the next level by purchasing a dredge. And we assume we would need a gold claim to use it, do you require any additonal permits on top of this, and what level claim would you need, would it have to be a mining level 2 Claim a Mining level 1 claim or would you beable to get away with just a prospecting claim, we are looking to do realitvley small scale just dredging out gravel banks in the creek bed. And what type of dredge would be best, the creek we are thinking about getting a claim/permit for has not much flow and probably not enhough water to support a floating dredge so are there other types such as highbanker type dredges???
Thanks a lot any advice or info on this would be very much appreciated !
