High banker regulations in California ( 16:31:01 WedJan 9 2008 )

Can anyone help me with these regs. I think that high-bankers are allowed, but my partners wont have them. Can anyone point me to the regs on these.

Thanks in advance!

As far as I am aware there no high banker specific regulations. No permit is required in Ca. as long as you use as a high banker and do not convert it to a dredge. The only rules that would affect that type of equipment is the requirement that you return no dirty back into the river. You must contain your muddy water in a settling area.

Keep all fuels away from the river and back fill your holes. If you are a 49er member and do not back fill your holes the Ray Man will get you. And you do not want that.

thanks for the reply. Are you saying that you cant use a dredge without the pontoons, but sitting on the bank to dredge a creek?
I have a 3 inch that I want to use, but the stream is too small for it to sit in

diggerww,

Dredging a creek that way is still dredging, not highbanking. Creeks are subject to the same dredging rules as rivers and they open the season for creeks at a different time than rivers.

Highbanking is done out of the active waterway, whether it is a river or creek. No muddy water can reach the river or creek, it has to go through a settling pond type of situation.

thanks Jim!

I have seen a wide variety of what is called a highbanker.

Here is what I want to do, pump from a stream into a sluicebox, shovel material into a hopper, and make sure the muddy water isnt getting back into the stream


Is this the legal version of a highbanker?

From what you describe, it sounds like highbanking to me and should be ok. If you are on club claims, remember to fill your holes in. It's a good idea even if you are not on club claims. Holes left open tend to give all miners a black eye.
