Lets send them the trash we pick up. I am dead serious abut it. If they had something material ,all the fishing line , weights , lead and steel shot etc . I don't think it would really matter the greenies aren't interested in the facts anyway.

all in all i think the karuk indians made a fool of themselves lookin like burnt out hippies, and what was that stuff about a clam being trapped in the rocks. hello . seems like we need to start a movement like take a kid fishing. take a kid gold panning!

Pretty poor reporting, with no research into the Karuks biased claims against recreational prospecting. It must have been a pretty slow news day, and seems to have been done before all the recent battles over suction dredging.

And, give me a break...their "biologist" telling us that the holes dug beside the river are killing the fresh water clams! Did they get stuck in the holes during high tide? Or, did they fall in while on a morning walk, and were unable to get out? 

I guess there isn't enough reality show drama to show a piece on the good that recreational miners do, both along the water and in the water.

SPECIAL REPORT: New Generation Of Gold Miners Using Banned Methods

The titles and the slant of the reporting is clearly biased against mining.  The amount of time given to the anti miners and that they have the last word is evidence of this.  Just because they weren't shouting, doesn't mean they were being fair.  They are trying to "sound reasonable".  I wish the Happy Camp guy had more clear  and powerful statements back up by quoting the studies already performed to refute the position.  Also, if he had the opportunity to hear what the indians had said, he could directly refute their claims, re: Hydrolic'ing and damage to the eco system.

Hello, is anybody out there?

News is not to tell the truth!! It's to sell more adverts, make money! It does not matter if it's in  print or on the tv, it's all the same, reporters are paid to get a "story" something to grab people's attention and make the teller look good. What a pile of news!!
