Here is one of my spots. You can see the stream sluice in the foreground and upstream of the Bridge River behind. This area was heavily worked by the Chinese during the Gold Rush of 1890 - 1900 or so. Many rock pilings are scattered about the area. The chinese were very thorough by washing and inspecting every rock. Washing the rocks got all gold off and often found valuable Jade. The stream sluice proved valuable in this spot because the hike in was pretty difficult and the lightness of the plastic sluice was worth it here. Found good concentrates of placer gold here.
