Thanks! One of my favorite claims. Enough bedrock to explore for years to come.

Let me get this straight.......
The natural turbidity of the Fraser is such you can't see 4" through the water.
And you can't dredge or high bank in or on the river due to the sediment you would produce?

General area question: how far up on the Fraser do most folks prospect?  Up by Prince George or closer to the CA/US border? 
Are most of the areas along the river already claimed, like it is in the US Western states?
Wondering if Lytton or Hope have open areas that I, from the neighbor to the South, can stop at a river crossing and prospect/pan for a couple hours?
In the US, there are prospecting clubs you can join to get access to claims.  Wondering if there are the same in Canada?
tnx for any info

Hi.Reed .B.C. and Yukon have panning reserves you can google.Those would be the only areas you can pan on unless you get a invite from a claim owner.Some can produce some nice gold but remember to leave every thing but a pan and shovel at home.Luck Mcbain.
