On February 6, 2015, Ranger Petersen signed the Decision Memo approving the Old China Plan of Operations. The proponent will utilize a mini-excavator to extract sand and gravel and process it through a trommel to extract precious metals.
Operation site is approximately 400 yds up from confluence with Wool Cr. on the north side of China Fork Creek. Access is off FS 615AB road roughly 2 miles north of Placerville
