Hello everyone!

I'm kind of a new one in prospecting and mining but managed to secure myself a nice claim at Park County on a Michigan Creek. Comming this summer I'm planning on poking around at the claim little bit more and ordering Cold Cube with trommel for that reason. The main question, do I need any kind of permit to run it on my claim? So far I was able to find that some dredges need the permit and some motorised equipment needs it but I don't know in what category Cold Cube with trommel will fell to.

Congrats on acquiring a claim! Did you stake it or buy it?

You should not been a permit to operate a GOLD cube.

Thanks. I bought 40 acres. I live in WI and don't have time to do foot work and than paperwork. :)

Also I don't mind allowing few people to dig on my claim in case someone is interested pm me and we can talk over details.

I hope you didn't buy a claim on ebay without doing your research. Lots of paper filers out there staking claims on ground with no gold and selling to folks like you who aren't able to go test for themselves.

I didn't buy it on e-bay. Lot's of scammers over there who don't even stake the claim or don't file it correctly and trying to sell it as a legit one. I did tons of research at least as much as I could regarding the area including maps, reports and historical information. It's still a gamble but better than nothing.

Well back to the topic. Park County, Fair Play office told me I don't need any permits or NOI, but Forest officials in the area where my claim is at said that they need NOI if I'm planning to dig more than 3ftx3ft hole no matter what equipment I'm planning to use.

You won't need to involve them unless you want to bring in heavy equipment and start moving mountains.
Coming to your claim a few times a year for some gold wouldn't amount to any disturbance with a gold cube and a shovel, especially inside the high water line.
A 3x3 is only a small test hole! Hehe

It's up to YOU to decide when the significant level is reached but you probably wouldn't get there without spending a summer at the claim and major dirt being moved. Youre at the small scale miner stage and using hand tools now so no worries.
