Oregon Placer Mining Report ( 01:35:19 WedDec 7 2011 )

I am attempting to complete the Oregon Placer Mining Report as required for this years dredging season. In completing the section: "Amount of Excavated Material" I am having some difficulty. The terms and conditions of activities throughout the State of Oregon indicate on the Condition Chart the following: "You may not remove/fill/alter more than 25 cubic yards of material per year from a stream designated as Essential Salmon Habitat and not more than 5 cubic yards per site." Since I dredged this last season on the Rogue River, which is an Essential Salmon Habitat river, completing this section of the report is necessary and I believe important. I would appreciate any help and/or assistance completing this section of the report! Thanking you in advance. JAB :shrug:

In most cases considering the swift current,large rocks and cold water. Moving 5 cuyd would be hard to do with the restricted sizes of the dredges. Remember 5 cuyd is 1/2 of a 10 wheel dump truck. Most of the time the Rogue dredgers just made small depressions in many places trying to locate pay areas.An honest answer is 2-3 cuyd in several places, not to exceed 25 cuyd total.

I have a Oregon dredge permit question, on the permit there is a line asking for a location (R T S) are you allowed to move from the section you list? do you need to amend your permit if you do?:confused:

They are asking you to list the township range section that you plan on doing most of your mining in. You may move around without amending your DEQ permit.

They are asking where you actively mined in 2011 and how much material you moved. You should keep a log with date area and material moved so it will be available at the end of year for this report.

If it's worth having, it's worth fighting for to keep it.

Yes Cowboy.

rivraton was asking about the question on the DEQ application where it asks you to give the township/range/section where you plan on doing your dredging for the upcoming season.

As far as the year end DSL report, yes you need to keep that accurate as you mine.

If you are following the ODEQ 700 permit, you are keeping a daily turbidity monitoring log that has all the information needed for your year end DSL report except for the amount of material moved.

You also need to remember that you may not move more than 25 CY per season and no more than 5 CY in one spot per season under the DSL permit in ESH streams.

This is directly from the permit as to what you must include in this report;

What to Report

You are required to report recreational placer mining activities for work done in ESH streams:

* when you altered more than one cubic yard at any one location using hand tools
* if you did any amount of recreational placer mining using a dredge or other mechanized equipment allowed under this General Authorization.

What Not to Report

* Do not report prospecting

Prospecting means you moved less than one cubic yard at any given location in an ESH stream or SSW using only non-mechanized equipment such as shovel, bucket, gold pan or small sluice box. One cubic yard is 27 cubic feet of material, or approximately 30 five-gallon buckets.

* Do not report work in a NON-ESH stream involving less than 50 cubic yards.

You do not need an authorization from the Department to move less than 50 cubic yards in a stream that is not designated as Essential Salmon Habitat while recreational placer mining.



That is it right off their permit requirements.

Mark
