Hey Oakwood,

I didn't hear about this fellow, but it's not impossible for a small dredging operation (1-2 man) to find an ounce a day in some of the major Rivers of California. A good buddy of mine owns many claims on the Feather River and has found hundreds of ounces from running a Proline 6-inch and a 10-inch dredge. I'm going up next season to help him dredge for about a month. He said an ounce a day is common on his claims once you get down to the paylayer.

Wishing the guy on the Klamath the best!

There are a handful of well known characters between the Feather and Yuba who prospect full time. We have had 2 claims in the Feather Canyon since 1973 and 1982, One un-named (because I know he wouldnt want to be mentioned ) mines down the river from us and still lives in the his 1957 school bus. There is a well known gentleman by the name of McGuyver who has had a following of fans in the Yuba and Seneca regions. Does that sound familiar? He mostly is a hard rock miner though.

A. Kappman is a well known full time miner up on the Klamath. he has been running a 8 inch dredge by himself for years up there.

Cheers, John
