Advice?

Dont get your hopes up for a start. Just go out and enjoy yourself and learn how to shake out a pan. The gold will come in time, but yes be excited! [<-panning->] {cool^sign}

find yourself a nice secluded spot in the woods and do it anyway ;) unless your going out there with heavy machinery,tearing up mad ground etc. what are the chances of getting caught. what are the odds that in the chance someone discovers you, they even know its illegal, let alone call the police on you..

I'm renting a cottage out by Big hollow river near East Angus Quebec, and it is permitted to pan and dig up to 3 feet, however I would need to fix anything I move to not disturb any habitation or dangers to other hikers or prospectors.

I assume that it is legal as I will be on privet land, and they also rent gold pans at the front office on the land, and also mention on their web-site that you can do prospecting.

Allowed or not,, im going, not to try to hit the mother load, but to have the pleasure of learning to pan and sluice. I will also be looking for some gem's, but my main search will be for the gold....
