    The gold looks great and the Napoleon has an additional 5+ grams of gold. Very nice take!

    Hi Guy's, it was great day, you passed lesson one are you ready for lesson 2 ? I will be going to my secret river this coming Sunday, it is about the same level of physical effort as the Sky, want to come ?, let me know. This river is a totally different beast, the more rivers you mine the better you get, you will be going from finding fine gold to course gold. Ed

    I feel like if I had seen that in your pan last weekend, I would have quit my job and just spent all week there. Also just might have fainted. Can't wait for Sunday. I am so ready I have been sleeping with the boots on and the pan on the night table. Just tell me where and when. I will be there.

    Nicely done, Ed! Gonna pan my cons today and see how I did. Had lots of fun, but when will my body stop aching? lol, I need a highbanker asap. Looking forward to Everett Mike's take too.

    After you left, I was poking around in the moss and panned a 3 x 3 inch little tuft. There were a dozen or so specks of gold in that little piece alone! Fun spot for sure. I want to bring my son up one of these days. He'd have fun mossing, since it is so easy.

    Have a great week, guys!

    -Mike

    I noticed that two of the flakes had a whitish/silver coating. Is this mercury, platinum, or quartz? You can see them bottom left here:

    One more macro. Anyone know what the smaller silverish specks are? Platinum?
