Additional Details:
These gold dredgers working on the Yuba River are the mechanical replacement of the '49-er, who panned the gravel for gold nuggets and gold particles lying in the stream courses. The process of drawing, the gravel from as deep as 100 ft. to bedrock, washing and amalgamating, is all done in one continuous operation within these dredges.
