Sorry. Missed this one.
 Yes all involved are supposed to have a license.  However, I have never been ​asked for mine. Kids aren't going to be a problem, as all branches of the government encourage kids to get into the outdoors.
 If you have someone going out with you regularly, it's only $50.

Glad you have the sense to start calling around. I run into so many idiots who don't have a clue. Someone is going to be made an example out of, and it will be expensive. We have people digging into the river bank here at Innisfail, opening up the bridge to erosion.  With the popularity of this waste of money, Alberta Environment is starting to get calls.
 Check out the river closures, as they are serious about protecting the spawning beds.  We only get a short season on most rivers, so get panning early to find a spot.
Happy to have achieved Dirty Old Man status. Finally a goal achieved.

I wish I had been on the forum earlier. Could have answered these questions for you as I have had my Alberta placer license for a couple years. As for everyone having a license. Just make sure your kid is not holding the shovel when the government agent comes along lol. But seriously it's like the other fella said take the kids out and see if they are really interested. My kids are 6 and 10 and they feed my hog for about 5 minutes then it's off to play in all that clean water lol. The wife sits in her beach chair and shakes her head at me while sipping on a cider lol.

Hi.Fr.The whole thing is stupid and would not hold up in court.How does a 10 yr old purchase a licence to play in the dirt?What if you are just out camping and the kids want to build a sand castle.Do they need a permit?I think there is a gross misinterpation of the law here.If some over zealous tax funded official has a problem.He needs his thought process rearranged.The back side of a shovel will cure his brain cells.If he has any.Most do not.Mcbain is ranting again.Just my opinionLuck Mcbain.

I wish I'd seen your post earlier. Could have been some help. I've been up in Grand Prairie County for ten years now and prospecting these parts. There's gold but not big stuff like B.C. Flower gold mostly. We do have some regs but not a lot.  Just make sure you have that license and your golden. Not worth the risk of loosing all your gear and getting a fine. And remember we can only use high bankers here. No dredges and don't put a sluice in a creek. That could bring a fish cop down on ya. Alberta is just interested in bringing in the money. No tree huggers here. They run them back to B.C. Sorry guy's your stuck with them over there lol. It's all oil gas and mining here with some farming and of course the cattle. They do a good bit of logging around Grande Prairie and Greenview. Good luck prospecting.

Hi.FR.BC and Alberta are not much different on prospecting rules yet.We do not tax children Yet.But we both have the same pathectic political leaders in power.Bc is about to pass a law where only 3 family members can work a claim.Got 4 kids you are out.Talk about freaked out communism.Good side is these parties never last long but do humungus damage in the meantime.The truth about tree huggers is most are highly paid individuals from the USA corporations that want the natural resources for themselves.It is a sad thing when our political leaders are swayed by huge bucks and not the people.Mcbain has to quit ranting.
