    I will be down after these next couple weekends. I have access to maps that show every piece of BLM, Forest Service, PG&E, etc. land there is in El Dorado County. I have not explored the creeks on this land but would be willing to share as soon as I have time (in a couple weeks).

    Re: who really wants to prospect.??????

    Wish I lived closer. I just got past the total newb stage. Been finding color, not much weight wise as most of it is fine in the locations I have dug. I hit the crystal claim near lake silverwood and came up on these specs and flakes. I dug down with a demo hammer in the side of a hill, crushed then classified a Full yard if not more. Ran it through my drywasher 2x. 200+ pieces. I gave up counting. This is from last saturday. Dug along the tertiary line where it met a layer of decomposing granite. Wasn't quite caliche yet, but dang near.

    Fine gold

    I find gold in places people dont even think of looking I am a little over a year into the hobby, or should I say I have the very addicting OCD passion for learning geology, studying maps, learning sites and places where gold has been found and looking for unobscure locations it may have been missed. And all the other things that go with prospecting Treasure hunting md-ing rock hounding etc. I was eyeballing my Lobo up near Randsburg in a wash on the First Chance claim in Last Chance canyon and found a nice chunky piece of fire opal. Ground score! Just never know what you will find if you dont get off your ass and go out and put some effort into it.

    Well I can vouch for Jack! I read on another post how you found quite a few specs out in Perris, I've been all over the santa rosa/ steele peak area, (I'm in Menifee area) skunked every time! I'm not giving up, especially after reading your post's! I'm planning to go to the TVP meeting on the 14th, maybe I will see you there! Thanks for the inspiration Jack.

    I need a partner too! Was up at the Crystal Claim 4th of July. Nice weather with a cool breeze. Big holes up there and fine gold. Where to go tomorrow?? East Fork? Lytle?
