    GG Thanks for posting these. Read quite a bit of the Charles Volney Averill book. Best thing I got out of it is this, it is not whether the stream has enough force to deposit gold somewhere along it but does the stream have enough force to remove it from that spot and send it to a new place. I will be looking at all water courses differently now.

    Thanks Much

    GM
