They are helping to build levees.

Smile and say little
The gold rush
The deposit slips
A river boulder that is very large and very old
A person who enjoys skipping rocks on water

Defend a claim
Cover your tracks
Search for gold
A dirt bank that keeps a river from overflowing
A business person who buys, trades, and sells gold
A green leafy vegetable used in Chinese cooking
A round fruit
A thick forest
A solid lump
