    Finding GOLD

    16 to 1 Mine

    Rediscovered the video by Reed Lukens of his walking tour of the 16 to 1 mine. Great history of his families connections to the minning in Alleghany, and the beautiful gold they coaxed out of the snow white quartz

    "The most inspiring thing about gold, is not the value, but under magnification, the true beauty of each piece. They are truly like snowflakes that never melt." Oakview2 Fly EAGLE Fly......

    Amazing place been there a few times when living in Auburn taking friends and relatives. Great video was the tv series that showed the new Colormetric sidescan sonar being used and multipounder masses being extracted there. They brought a huge mass ,acid etched, bigger than a football to a gold show in auburn many years ago. They let Bob and I hold the thing and it was sooo heavy it cut into your flesh and never even noticed till handed back. Up here at our Gem show they brought the crystalline dragon amazing bloody amazing-...John
