I have been to this claim a few times and my last time there went very well. Just with a sluice and pan I was able to find a few pickers in a few hours.. I took a buddy there who has never even heard of gold prospecting and now he has the bug now. Basically on how to get there is very simple, just follow the directions to the claim and the claims is clearly marked. You don't need a 4x4 to get there. There is a lot of boulders and trees and you don't really need to dig much to get to bed rock. There are a few places you can dredge but to me it looks as if the best choice would be to highbank or to use a sluice . GOOD LUCK
Good potential for the panner, sluicer or dredger.
