    His attitude is about the same as mine. It isn't even really all that pretty and is worth anything to me until it is turned into cash. Besides,where could you have run to with it! LOL Fred

    Fred,

    I don't usually turn it into cash. I give a lot of it away, and have it made into jewelery for gifts as well.

    Hope you stub your toe on one the size of your shoe,

    Wow Hoser,

    That's quite the little tale you told there, and very interesting at that. I've never heard of using bleach. Thanks for the tips and all the very best,

    Silver Dollar and Coarse Gold

    Here's some sassy gold posing it up on an 1887 Silver Dollar. Here's another shot of some nugget shooting gold as well.

    All the best,

    Bedrock and Gold: The mysteries...

    Hey Lanny in AB, thanks for the tons of good reading. I have seen in several Hyd. pits areas of black, shist/shale patches and was wondering if maybe this is the black goo bed rock you are refering to? Also, what king of signal inhancer do you use with your SD? I hunt with an OLD PRO, we both have GP X's. when I run my 8" mono, he will run his 11" that I don't have and he is constantly spanking me. I have Koss 35's and been thinking about the Gray's.

    Signal enhancer and headphones

    Hey there Michael,

    Thanks, and the signal enhancer I use is a Super Sound signal enhancer, and I use Gray Ghost headphones--I can really here those tiny faint signals with this setup. I'm really impressed.

    I'm not exactly sure what the black-goo bedrock is, but from all the graphite swirling up in the pan when we panned it out, it's a good bet it probably was. I've never tried to work with any messier stuff in my life!

    All the best,

    Don't know what happened, but here's one of the pictures that was supposed to appear, and I'll try to toss in another one as well.

    OOPS! Must have renamed the one file--I'll try again another day. Sorry, and please accept my apologies as I'm sure it's my fault. In fact, if not for failure, I'm sure I'd never had made any discoveries while prospecting.
