  • All the videos I have seen on gold prospecting show lots of lead being pulled from the streams. I read the regs on-line and thought the regs said the WA State APPS forms were required since 2017...

Working a dry wash

Hello All,  I will be doing some work this summer in a dry wash the claim runs six miles up a drywash with a small creek, most if not all of the gold has been found outside of the creek up on the hill sides. so my question is what do you look for if you are going to work a drywash? I would like to have a starting point. NorthWestAU
