California Drought-Gold Prospectors

Tim Amavisca, 38, and his daughter Hailey, 15, use a sluice box to trap gold flakes on a textured rubber mat as they search for gold March 4 along the Bear River near Colfax. Amavisca is among the amateur prospectors who have flocked to the Sierra Nevada foothills and are taking advantage of the lower water levels to search for gold in riverbeds that have been unreachable for decades.
