    Sad to say my friend and mining partner Carlo was found dead by his sister yesterday morning. Heart attack.
    He was 45 years old.

    Damm... I'm sorry for your loss, losing a friend is tough, then finding a new honest partner worth his weight takes years...

    Thanks reed

    Integrity,generosity,hard working, modest and a friend.Don't know if replaceable.
    Me and my girl just lost our favorite human beeing in november,after a few months of illness,thats why i didn,t feel like posting much enymore.Now him.
    You are a tad older then me,i guess you've seen your own share of loved ones go.
    What can we do,-nothing .Go on till it's our turn.
    For shure the 8 inch is a bit too big to handle for me alone and the biggest part of the gear was stored at his home in italy.
    Maybe the end or not,we'll see.
    Stay healthy everybody

    cheers,emilio

    I'm sorry for your loss, Spaghettigold. I enjoyed this thread and the content. It's terrible to hear of such a loss at such a young age (45).
    Hang in there.

    so easter i visited the parents of carlo and recuperated big part of my gear. Futile to say they where devastated.
    I will try to go on alone this summer but have no idea yet if i take the little 4 inch or the 8 inch.
    Part of the problem is the the camp site and gear that carlo was in charge of,and the very time consuming dam builts.

    Now for the dam built i found a solution online.

    When i first saw it i jumped for joy ..then i saw the price. For 40 feet long and c.a. 5 feet high its around 12 000 dollar if i recall correctly.
    Will try to do one by myself but time and money isnt there to get it done for this year.
    However a very innovative invention .This could allow you to work also in flat parts of rivers.

    Hi all.
    Even though this is my 8 inch thread,i'll continue posting vids here using other Recovery methods.
    Some footage from last year.Crevicing and gravity sniping.
    Gravity vid still to do.
    Vid is cut rudimentarily.My go pro has sound issues,gold is not displayed well.
    I was more concerned with finding the shiney then filming.But i ain't in commercial youtubing enyway.
    Hope you still enjoy,Cheers

    and they settle so much better in the sluice then the fine flat gold.
    This river has almost only chunky pieces,so i made the first couple of riffles in clarkson style ,15 degrees bend backwards.
    Hardly eny gold makes it past the first riffle.
    Very happy with them
