I've been researching prospecting for the last 10 years, and this year I took the plunge and bought equipment and finally hit the rivers! I was originally introduced to prospecting by a 80 +- year old midget (I know it sounds funny), but he went to the Yukon and dredged for a living during the summer, in the winter he would visit the town he owned a house in and have coffee with me, and tell me about his adventures!  I was intrigued, but back then (2000) gold was pretty cheap and I wasn't too interested. I have since gotten into prospecting and have had AMAZING results!

Anyways I just thought I would share a video of my experience!

We didn't really have to pack it all in by foot, I have a little raft I like to throw all the gear into then just walk it down the shore on a rope. We originally started to work the inside bend where the road ends, then after dismal results we went searching for someplace better. When we saw that gravel bar we did the prospectors dance and went back for the gear. Beautiful little gravel bar, right on the paystreak:)

Thanks! I spend my whole day at work studying topographic maps instead of working lol, it's not by Devon, it's east of Edmonton, I usually take a raft in the summer to get to the nice spots from my maps, but this late in the year I just went somewhere with road access. Too bad there isn't more river access by car around here, but eh.. that's what the rafts are for Smiley I got the 2" pump, but the highbanker uses 1.5 piping so, I had to get an adapter... Hell of a pump though, on full throttle it blew the highbanker pipes apart the first time!

yeah, I do a lot of studying while at work also. I have basically the same setup as you except I have the 1.5 in pump.

I don't have a boat, so I've also been restricted to road access points, alot of old access points have been blocked off over the past ten years or so, it kinda sux!

Oh well, part of the fun is in the chase...

It's a shame, a lot of farmers are starting to put fences up on range and township roads that access the river. I picked up a zodiac so I can get it around in my car (but it's quite a full load with all the equipment, booze, food, and booze, and booze) just so I could get to the nice gravel bars away from the roads. I have a keen interest in working the bars near gravel pits... Did you get your equipment from Rich's in Edson? I got a lot of equipment from Bedrock Supply, but they seem to be getting out of the prospecting side of things. The guy from Rich's actually drove into Edmonton to deliver my equipment! THAT'S SERVICE!
