Au insitu ,..II
Just made it out,..first time this year ! Yeah,.. don't get out often enuff. seem's the only valid excuse anymore is when my buddy from Virginia makes it out here to So. Cali for work . We always make a weekend[or more] for chas'n that Au .
This trip friday too monday,..highnoon . We didn't make it out there till about 1:30 ,..P.M. !! the latest arival time ever ! Anyway , my buddy hit the ground run'n with his Lobo Super Traq ,..as I watched him top a hill to the N.W. .., I figured the Ol' boy might just out run that skunk,..this time . I went forward with my plan ,.which was to run a few larger & newer coils on my G.M. V-sat over some old patches . I didn't have any luck with the larger coils,.I'll try 'em again . But by days end the ol' stock 9x6 found the gold , 1/4 gr. And by sun down ,that Ol'boy had lost that Ol' skunk in those hills ,..made it back to camp with two bits of Au.
next morning ,my buddy hit 2 pc's right off,.on his "new" patch .And about noon ? I found this sunbaker .
This Sunbaker [.6? gr.] is the qualifiying bit of Au. for the title ,.. Au. insitu,.II it just rolls off the tongue nicely ,..could have just titled this post "Sunbaker"
By sundown saterday,.all the gold for this trip had been found ,
In this pic , my buddys gold is on the right side [T.W. 1.2? gr.] mine ,are on the left ,[T.W. near a gram] . my gold traveled home in water, and have a nice shine to 'em . My buddys ,stayed dry ,...dirty little things arn't they ?
Anyway,. there you go ,. if y'all have any sunbaker pic's throw 'em up here ,.. like to see them .
Thanks ,.. Blindpig

Hello All, I forgot to write in the above reply that if you would like to see some very good pictures of gold in place go to Rob Allisons Nuggethunting and look at the menu for Natural Gold Nuggets . TRINITYAU/RAYMILLS

Hay Trinityau ,.WOW!! I saw the pic's you posted here Aug 28 for the fist time last night! I don't know how I missed "em for near 3 mo. .
Anyway ,.. Great advice given with these pic's,..Yeah right !! all the easy gold is gone !! True not as much , but even within my small Au posse, we have found pieces up to 3 oz. in well hunted so. cal area's , in the most obvius of places,. it just makes ya laugh ,......or cry ,..if ya believed ALL the easy stuff was gone .
Well,. thanks for sharing some great advice & AU Insitu pic's Joel
