Gold Dredging Ban
FILE- In this Aug. 5, 2009 file photo, New 49ers gold mining club founder Dave McCracken shows off gold he pulled from the bottom of the Klamath River with his suction dredge near Happy Camp, Calif. Taking the lead from California, the Oregon Legislature is considering barring modern suction dredges used by smalltime miners that suck up gravel to sift out the last flecks of gold from streams where millions of dollars have been spent on restoring salmon.((AP Photo/Jeff Barnard, file)
