    I would think with the Alaska Gold Expedition getting started up there , that someone from GPAA would know something about this. Also, I can not see how they could do that. In most states
    from the high tide mark down is considered in the water and the states land.

    Here is some info from the DNR website:

    State land begins at the mean high tide level. Since the average tide at Nome is 1.04 feet, this means that in order to be on state land the miner must effectively be in the water. All of the uplands at Nome are privately owned. Therefore, other recreational mining apparatus such as rocker box or high banker or sluice box or gold pan must be used in the surf below mean high tide, but not higher up on the beach. Miners using these other recreational mining apparatus in the surf zone are not required to file a permit application and receive a permit.
    Because the uplands are all privately owned, any miner mining or camping on the beach or tundra above the beach will be in trespass unless they have permission from the land owner. Trespass is not allowed, and is grounds for revocation of the miners' permit.

    In regards to Nome Alaska Gold Corporation and Mr. Gill's post, here is a link to an interview conducted by Nome's radio station KNOM - http://www.knom.org/wp/bl...ewell-to-west-beach/

    I would suspect the beach setion that is used for the AK Exped. is part of the property that  GPAA/LDMA own, so they don't have to worry about it or get involved.

    I have been looking up GPAA claims in Alaska, and didn’t find any in the area of Nome. If there is any new claims in Nome, please let me know, as I would love to go there this season coming up, I know GPAA used to have access to the Beaches of Nome, because I used to watch the show on PBS that featured George “Buzzard” Massey, founder of GPAA, in the late 80’s and early 90’s, and he used to talk about when he needed a new ‘Vette he would go to the beaches of Nome.
