    Thanks guys,I really became attached to that little guy,his was about the size of my pinky when I started(I know it was him because he would always hang right back at the left side of my head,and dart in when the goody's would come up)he was there everyday,and I got to watch him grow....but we kill fish??

    These deposits of Blue Lead, did the existing stream flow over and ancient riverbed, or was this clay washed down my mother nature, or perhaps some hydraulic operations of the past. Thanks in advance...

    waldo,you have to be kidding?I know your not though unfortunatly........they just cant do anything without bolf face lies.I have had fish up to 10 lbs....as John would say,"Righteous"!!Wakes ya up when when them "bumps",into ya!!
    Yea,Joe,it does!!This was the first season since I can remember,I never found one coin!
    O.V,that particular spot .........I am not sure...its an odd assemblege of geology,right down from a major teitiery River channel.Above that is the nastiest clay/sludge,that has the consistency of pudding,and has to be cut with the water jet like jello....I have no clue what that is.
    I dont know of any where nearby where we can "follow",the lead though.I have heard of some places North of here but dont know

    Finding GOLD
    I have personally never found any blue lead, but look forward to the day that I do. I know the old timers salivated to find those ancient gravels, and I hope to as well one day... Great pics by the way... I have been trying to find this book but alas only have found a PDF file of it.

    Yea,when I encounter it its spotty,sometimes feet long,sometimes yards long,sometimes just a pocket.It thick creamy stuuf too,that really compacts.You have to blast the hell out of it with the water jet,before sucking it up to liberate the gold.The other clay I drool when I encounter....have only found it twice is graphitic schist,it staines your hands black and is like ink in the water,but filthy rich everytime....the gold is often "stained",black too

    I have never experienced this material, but have read and seen videos of guys prospecting it. When dry it is incredibly dense and hard, correctThey used blast it out of hillsides with dynamite or powder before it could be washed. I know you said you have to blast it with high pressure water to loosen it up. Being the inquisitive SOB that I am, how can this stuff be deposited in spots? maybe a ancient bed only partially exposed, blasted out of a hydraulic pit somewhere above. I am interested in only the generality, not any specific areas. Thanks in advance....

    There's a video or three on utube of fish swimming around the dredge discharge and down in the hole.

    Prospecting
    The Fish and Game propaganda is getting real old. Fish not only will visit a dredge site, they'll move in. Every day dredging I've had fish pecking at my legs for any food they can find. Behind the dredge, the fish line up to eat, just like fish in the wild sit below a stretch of rapids waiting for the food to come down stream. When I would take a break, the fish would crowd the hole trying to find the food that got kicked up. At times, the fish would get so aggressive, they would be right next to the nozzle not wanting to wait for it to come down the sluice. Fish love dredging operations!!!

    I have often wondered that my self O.V.......I dont have the answer?The one spot (where this pic was taken)was actually on the outside edge of the channel,it may have came back further down stream,but I never got to go look.The other place that comes to mind,where I have encountered a good amount was just downstream from a major Hydraulic operation...mucho mercury!What was odd about that was that there was never mercury in the Blue clay so that would tell me it was virgin
