  • SirPansAlot: was it a testing permit with less than 10 test holes and ponds? They have difference prices depending on what your doing.

  • kosoca: I was pretty suprised, I figured I had quite a bit of surface disturbance and I was asked to only post 3500$ :)

  • SirPansAlot: The bond is a reclamation bond. .. Basically, to cover the cost of all the damage you do if you just up and leave the permmited site without reclaiming the land.(Filling your holes, recontouring your land, ect).

How do you tell when you have hit bedrock?
« on: February 04, 2012, 08:08:42 PM »

Well the simple answer is that it is fairly solid rock, though it may be igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary in nature, sometimes solid, and sometimes quite fractured, heres a few pictures of a claim I have on the Fraser River that demostrates this a bit........Greywolf









The last two picture show a quartz vein with interesting sulfides and there is some wired gold within the quartz as well........

That quartz looks like a good place to test out some detectors
