went up and pulled off the road by the bridge before jamestown and got more color in one hour with a pan and a 1/4 inch classifier than i find in most areas in a full day. nice chunky lil Gold! so if you are bored in the area and want to pick around there is gold there and its nice!

I am not sure that would be considered "open". The bridge and surrounding area should be state right of way, upstream of the bridge you run into the Harvard mine property and Jamestown sanitary district and about 1/4 mile downstream it crosses Bell Mooney road, its private property from there on down and posted no trespassing. However, I do see cars parked there from time to time and as long as you dont make a big deal about it (highbankers, pumps etc.) I dont think they run people out. I could be wrong though so stealth mode is probably best, I scouted that area about a month ago but didnt take any test pans, guess I am gonna have to go back. Good job Jeremiah, did you poke around the bedrock or in that sand bar by the bridge?

not sure about the laws although i thought it was 140 ft' either side of the bridge. I walked to the middle of the creek and started digging under rocks, I also see people parked there almost everytime i pass. there was another gentleman and his children above the bridge tward harvard mine and he was prospecting also. didnt hit any bedrock, just around the boulders in the middle

Thanks for the info.   found a easy way around poison oak. get your self the disposable paint suits. if you know you have to walk through it to get somewher, wear it out to the river,  roll it down and off. when your ready to go, just roll it back on and toss it when you get back to the car. a plastic bag for all your gear helps to. IF YOU DO GET PIOSON OAK, BUY YOUR SELF SOME TECHNU. you can find it at most stores. works good before or after you get it.

I should check what i post. that wasnt the mark i thought i posted.  The pull off  has a "Camping Prohibited" and a power/phone line near the river?  I hate walking around chasing my shadow.

Just north of the bridge is a claim that is leased by Jamestown Gold Panning. A guy named John runs his prospecting business on that stretch and charges for outings, so might want to avoid the north side.

Hey 209gold, thanks for heads up on that place. Gonna go stomp around down there this Saturday. I'll have limited time so didn't want to drive way up into the hills. If we find something good, I'll save you some...share with us, share with you.

I  see people prospecting there all the time 

The way I see it, you should be safeall the way to the fences. Ive also seen the law passing right on by them without running anyone off.

I am talking about the area near the feed store on one side of the road with a storage facility and gas station on the other. I think that  Jamestown gold fella does his thing upstream a bit. Yes the bridge just beyond Bell Mooney. I never have worked any there because Im always on my way somewhere else .
