California's last working gold dredge sank.

Odd. I didn't even know that any of those things were still in use. This is sort of like finding out that the carriage factory has burned. I knew that there were still a few placer miners about, most of them week-end hobbyists, gleaning a bit of gold from the streams, but I thought the last dredges had been retired ages ago. Very odd.
