Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife


How can I get an HPA?

The Gold and Fish pamphlet is available free at the WDFW website. No application is required to obtain the pamphlet; you may print it out and use it right away. If you do not have Internet access, you may request a printed pamphlet from WDFW headquarters or a WDFW regional office.


If you want to conduct mineral prospecting or mining activities at different times or locations, or with different equipment than allowed in this pamphlet, you must apply for a separate, written HPA. The same is true for any mineral prospecting or mining activities in marine waters. To obtain a written HPA, follow the instructions on the main HPA website.
