    All Types Of Treasure Hunting

    Anyone near the HAFB/Ogden area want to TH in the LaPlata area?

    I'm new to the hobby, but have some interesting sites picked out. I'll drive and get us there, you show me the ropes with a MD!

    Would love to go with you. La plata is exclusively a silver load and the silver is locked in galena. It's not hard to extract but somewhat dangerous. Willard canyon might be a better place for gold and platinum but we would need to go up with buckets an a classifier. Box elder county sheriffs confiscated my old bosses sluice box and all his other prospecting equipment for crossing the line on an active claim. I wouldn't mind losing a few buckets but not my gold cube.

    The issue as I understand with Laplata. It was mainly a summer camp and the area is super trashy. No real concentrated dump areas so the trash produced is just stewn about by the miners. Looks like lots of fun but I do know there has been several people up there in the past. So I would suspect most of the easy stuff is gone, but not all of it.

    If your offer is still valid then I would like to give it a shot.

    It was not a silver load mine. It was one of the only few silver placer mines. The deposit was so shallow and the area worked out rather quickly.
