    There’s more raincoming your way John. Raining like a cow peeing on a flat road over here on the coast. I’ve a 12 hour solo shift tomorrow on Hwy 199. There’ll be a lot of rocks to plow, hopefully no big slides. The Smith River is already running high and muddy. Moving some material.

    You darn right Herb, it’s not so bad those cows peeing on a flat rock, but when they crap on a good river skipping rock it’s another story. Ha ha.

    Well the storm has passed and it’s beautiful up here again today. A pretty good amount of rain, about 11 inches in 4 days. Not a flood, but turned the otherwise gin clear Smith River pretty chocolate colored. There will be a little rearaingment of the gravel bars and a few slides, but not much change in the river.

    Come on up this way some day Herb, we’ll do a little panning.

    63bkpkr, I was out on NFAR just below the confluence a good ways Thursday and Friday at water level. 11,000cfm wasn't moving much. Perfect opportunity to go get an idea for what the stream is doin at 40-50,000cfm though I'll tell ya now those perennial creeks & drainages on the other hand... Found this along the way, any clue as to what the hell I found? Heavy as hell. Like soaking wet in leather heavy [ATTACH=CONFIG]1673362[/Click image for larger version.

    E&C, The multicolored rock - take a magnet to it, I offer that as it may have iron in it that will attract the magnet, the red/rust color. If not magnetic then can you easily separate or cause flakes to come off of it, like peeling layers loose? If you can peel layers then possibly Mica. If a magnet clings to it then iron and if so I'd break it open as Iron might be associated with gold.

    The river flow - when you say confluence do you mean the meeting of the North Fork and the Middle Fork between the new vehicle bridge and the old Train bridge?? Or elsewhere?? They may be letting Clementine Dam fill and are only letting the normal flow for this time of year exit the Dam, total guess on my part. 11,000 CFS should not be massive but it still should be noticeable.

    Thank you for the input..............63bkpkr

    Thanks 63'. Broke the boulder down to manageable pieces and hid them in a good stash spot that's always served me right and brought home what I thought would contain values. Crushed it up pretty good, ran it thru the blue bowl. Goin back into the canyon today to hump the rest out and probe the other half of the boulder. Maybe take a peek up hill/stream a ways. There's an old hydraulic mine tailings pile within 100 yards of where I found it. Lots and lots of quartz. Darndest thing, some of it smells like sulfur/rotten eggs.

    Ill check in with y'all in a couple days. Got to go stretch out my legs. Maybe I'll start a journal and let y'all see what I do and some of my finds.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!
