Panning with Jayda, not your stereotypical gold miner. You can see in the early part of the video that this is not a casual operation. And as I am "environmentally aware", I am concerned about excessive disruption of streams - by digging into the banks. Digging in the channel itself (and in the eroded material from the banks) is not much different that what nature would do during a heavy storm.
But this appears to be the floor of an old mine, the environmental damage has already been done. Or maybe it is an active mine.
She knows what she is doing, I wish her luck in her endeavors. (I wonder where she is?)
