Hello Mr. Mosley,

Per your request regarding regulations regarding panning for gold, if you intend to pan for gold as a "recreational" activity - no surface mining permit is required. Suction dredging is not recommended in privately owned streams and is not allowed in National Forests. The operation is to be kept within the channel with no disturbance to banks.

On occasion - specific Primary Trout Streams may be closed to be protective for wild trout spawning. The Georgia Wildlife Resources Division in Gainesville Ga, 770/535-5498 may provide you with more details on this aspect.

The main thing for you to do though, is to obtain permission from property owners of the streams, (written permission is best). If you intend to pan in the Chattahoochee National Forest please refer to the Chattahoochee National Forest website for further information.
