    Good New From the Sunshine State

    At the SPMA Pot Holes claim (just accross the river from the Laguna placers) a member reported fining a real glory hole when dry washing.
    If reports are correct (published in the SPMA newsletter), Mr. Turner stopped counting his gold at 28 grams!

    yeah, Brian is a madman. Just to put things in perspective he was given info by a prospector who had worked that area his whole life. He will routinely put over 100 5 gallon buckets through his drywasher a day and when he got the 28 grams the thermometer was hovering around 115 if I remember correctly and he has been out there working when it read 140 degrees! He is no slouch, is in great shape and seems to be unaffected by heat.
    If you plan to go be sure that you are a club member. Wouldn't want any claimjumpers coming down with a bad case of lead poisoning....j/k.
