California -- Auburn State Recreation Area New Rules for 2017

Post by Admin on Tue Feb 28, 2017 9:29 am

Hey Gold Adventurers...

Sadly, I have learned that the godless, Commie Kalifornia State Parks Department has implemented new and onerous/overly restrictive rules for the entire Auburn State Recreation Area (ASRA).....all 42,377 acres of prime gold country and 40+ miles of NF American and MF American Rivers are basically worthless now.....due to them implementing their completely unnecessary "Hands & Pans Only" rule.

https://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=502

ASRA Gold Panning Regulations
The Auburn SRA now allows gold panning using the “hands and pans” only method. Please abide by the following regulations when collecting minerals:
Panning for gold is considered to be “rockhounding” as the term is applied in the Department. The gold pan is the only exception permitted to the exclusion of tools from rockhounding in a unit (T-14 CCR 4611 (i))
Rockhounding is the recreational gathering of stones and minerals found occurring naturally on the undisturbed surface of the land, including panning for gold in the natural water-washed gravel beds of streams (T-14 CCR 4301(v)).
Tools and equipment may not be used in rockhounding, except gold pans. Rocks or minerals gathered may not be sold or used commercially for the production of profit. One person may gather no more than 15 pounds of mineral material per day. Historic and prehistoric or archeological specimens may not be gathered. In state recreation areas rockhounding is limited to beaches which lie within the jurisdiction of the Department and within the wave action zone on lakes, bays, reservoirs, or on the ocean, and to the beaches or gravel bars which are subject to annual flooding on streams. Rockhounding is limited to within the wave action zones of lakes and streams. Muddy water from panning must not be visible more than 20 feet from the panning operation (T-14 CCR 4307, 4308, & 4611).
If you have any questions, please call the Auburn SRA office for more information.
----------------
SO, no more hand tools...........no more shovels, sluices, buckets, classifiers, crevice tools, pry bars.....etc.

The ONLY way we and others will be able to get use of simple, non-motorized tool use again will be to write California Republican Congressman Tom McClintock, District 4, and ask him to intervene with the Kalifornia State Parks people and rescind their onerous new "Hands & Pans Only" rule for the ASRA.

I sent him an e-mail already.  To send him an e-mail......you have to spoof his address/Zip code filter.  You have to use a Zip code within his 4th District to send him an e-mail.   I found using any made up street address (like 101 Main Street) and Auburn, CA and 95603-5004 worked...  Ha.

Every single voice he hears from ALL prospectors...........in Kalifornia and from all over the nation MIGHT spur him to action, make the ASRA open again to gold prospecting with more than your fingernails and a simple hand pan...

I can see the day coming in the future that all public lands will be off limits to the public!

Proof that our government is working for the benefit of the citizens.

If these socalled "representatives" of ours keep getting their "Legacy lands" there wont be any land ! Sooner or latter ALL the public land will be gone like Dick says! I say ,If they aren't representing OUR best interest and whats best for our Nation , then force them out of office because they are NOT representing us! Publically humiliate them because of it(BUT be truthful and factual)They are representing "their party" and that isn't what they were voted into office for! After all aren't we to be Making America great again!
