  1. Like with many prospectors there always comes a time when seeking answers from those who have "been there", helps. While I'm in Arizona, these two questions may or may not be location specific. 1. In placer mining does the use of a small electric demolition hammer constitute mechanized earth moving when used for the sole purpose of loosening dried placer ground rather than by pick and shovel? 2. I remember reading here within ICMJ, something about digging in stream/creek channels and "high/low" water marks but cannot seem to locate the article or thread. As always, input would be appreciated and would not be taken as legal advice. I simply want a starting point when having a discussion with BLM AZ. Great magazine and wonderful people as well! DLDOYLE
