I've been doing some panning here in RI, and have found some "fly poop" pieces, nothing spectacular but enough to motivate me to keep going and connect with people who are in the know.

    My great grandmotherís sister married a man name George Lyon who owned a farm in Foster, RI. They had a small vein of gold on the property. The gold was in white quartz.

    Hey Ben, didn't know you were a prospector. I go to the wild Am a few times a year. Did you ever find that "secret spot" in NH?

    I found a bit of gold on the wild AM, lots of garnets up the Kanc by a campground and park area, off the top of my head forget the name. Also stayed at the campground down the bottom of the wild AM.

    I don't do it currently to health reasons and very bad knees.

    checkout a couple youtubes I did

    Mr. MH59 and myself finally got together for a trip, my first since July. We decided to check out a new spot that I had scouted out 2 years earlier

    We then returned to a place we had been to earlier in the year. The water was quite low but the MacKirk Recon was up to the job

    Some of the gold from the outing. Small stuff for the most part. Good first trip of the fall
