    Those haven't traveled far...

    The rock they were in might have... What does the rest of the gold from the area look like?

    YEP!! John and I are gonna be there in the morning. Just stripping a drop zone we honed in on. We didn't know it was gonna step like it is. More material than expected. There are heavies from the top down we haven't hit the real bottom yet,Or cleaned the cracks we have exposed totally yet. The big pieces have come from wet shovels off of rough bedrock. So it is gonna be fun to see what happens when we actually start using crack tools!!!!


    You need to come for a visit Joe.
