Hyro-force nozzle ( 21:30:25 SunMar 16 2014 )

Been up and down the Klamath from I-5 to Ukonom claim looking for a gravel bar that I can hydro force nozzle 300 feet from the river into a highbanker. Cannot find a gravel bar large enough to get that far from the water. At Ferry Landing the bar is big enough, with attractive sites to use this method, but I do not think it is part of our claims. I have a boat for access to the south side of the river but do not know where I can go. Any ideas? I have been crack-vacing on Ukonom with fair results...but I want to move some real estate!

Elliot Bar has several stair steps up away from the river on the far side. There has been almost zero activity over there, since a boat is required for access. Two of our early members who moved away from Happy Camp many years ago confided in me last summer that they did really good on the far side out of a lower strata of streambed that was exposed by old time historical hydraulic mining. They said they redirected water from Elliot Creek to the work site through old water flumes so they could run their high-banker.

Access with the boat is from a road which goes down closer to the river on the lower end.

Here is the claim:

The upper bar on K-15A is also wide enough that you can get a hundred yards away from the river. Some members have done alright over there:

The lower end of our Gordon's Ferry property has old hydraulic cuts that extend well up away from the river. Those might be very productive. It's a long time since anyone has been in there:

Our Indian Creek South Fork property also has some opportunities, though I am not aware of any prospecting activity yet as far as 100 yards away from the waterway:

Thank you for the info Dave! I plan to get back to the river next week for a few days. I have a motorized inflatable that I think I can access those steps from Coons Creek boat landing. I tried the access on the lower end and it is too difficult to get my rig in there via the make-shift road from the cul-de-sac access. Unless there is another way. The upper end of the mega hole also looks good. Easy access there. Hope to see you one of these days.
