    Great video djpitr, beautiful little area you and phil are working - nice and peaceful. Have you tried running a mini sluice? Its a small creek, but I've had some luck daming those small creeks and running my mini bazooka. It's some work having to dam the creek to create the proper flow, but you should be able to run a little more material. But I do like working a creek like that with just a pan and shovel, taking my time and enjoying nature. Gotta love that carolina gold Keep the videos coming and great picture quality too.

    Hey djpitr, Its always good times when you can get out on a nice day, no matter if you find much color or not :-) I've never prospected in TN, but here theres gold there. I have yet to stay overnight at a prospecting site, but heard thermal city is not a bad stay, fairly reasonable cabin rates too and you can always bring a tent. I've thought about heading up that way when it opens, atleast that way you can get some of the flood gold thats developed over the winter since its not open.

    Hey Drake, thats yellow metal in your pan :-) Not sure how much material you worked to get that, but it looks great. Keep at it

    I just saw this thread and figured I'd invite you falla's over to the Eastern US Prospectors Forum.
    You may be able to make some friends and get some access to some locations.
    As to Astros post you must consider that most people that get involved in prospecting don't stay in very long because of the difficulty in finding locations that they can access as well as being disappointed by the small amount of gold we have in our area.
    A lot of times these are the folks that cause problems, not intentionally, but because of lack of knowledge.
    If you do your due diligence you will be rewarded. Wes

    G1, it's 10pm and you shouldn't prospect in the dark. Prospect during the day, run your cons at night and while their running check tnet. You know that :-)

    Got out yesterday, great weather to get out and play in the creek :-) Got a bazooka gold trap last week (prospector model), I've had the super mini model for about a year now. Ran the prospector for around 2 hours and feed it unclassified material. Worked some cobble on a clay layer and the bank next to the cobble. My take weighed in at .048 grams, not quitting my day job, but it felt great getting out.
