my cleanup for Saturday on Blewett Pass Wa.
went out as a guest with my brother to their claim, I am hooked on Blewett pass now & will join the club too. this is my best cleanup to date since i started panning a year ago. got more in one cleanout from running two half sized buckets half filled with materials screened through screen door screening than i did in all previous prospecting trips and digging on a hunch from looking over VERY high water areas and envisioning the high water slack water areas in my head, then busting out a shovel and test digging.
Alot of the gold is Mercury covered, some silver or white gold in there and possibly some nickle. Fun day.
Needless to say, we kept digging there lol!
also got another mini nugget to accent my larger one.

I'm sure you already know but be careful with the mercury covered gold.

I was careful, i only held it in my lip for 30 minutes and then put it in a safe sealed container before anyone got it on their fingers. (kidding)
