    You must be the guy on this site that works the most material while still holding down a job. Def jealous. I have a buddy that lives in Denver. I told him that there was gold right there in town. He was pretty incredulous.

    Yes it was fun! When I got home I looked so Happy my wife knew I had had a great time. Today I went to Bass Pro and bought a pair of their hip waders. Way overkill but now I'm ready for deep water. lol I can't wait to get out again next week while it is still warm! It is fantastic to find a little gold this close to home! Thanks Again Kevin!

    Nice of you to say and might be true ;-) I'd like to think there's guys in Calif mother lode country who do better while working full time but at least here in Denver I suppose. It sure helps to have productive creeks close to home...gotta love Denver!

    So glad to hear that Joe. The time with you really made my day! I definitely approve of the hip waders, boots just aren't long enough most times. My second prospecting stop on Thursday included two 'soakers' as I stepped in my own hole, deeper than the boot is tall. Brr! (Understandable mistake when the water is so full of sediment from snow melt runoff that you can't see the skid plate of your sluice thru an inch or so of water...the hole I dug was quite invisible ;-) Waders would have made all the difference. Ah well, it's all part of the adventure

    Good catch! I shoveled directly into my Bazooka Prospector just like usual...no bucket or classifier involved. I only use the classifier to pull the larger gravel out of my cons. I usually do a quick classify and partial panning at the creek to reduce how much material I carry out. It also helps on days like today when I am sampling several areas and so, pulling the sluice after each sample hole, classifying the cons and panning them down enough to see what we think of that sample hole.

    Btw total take for the outing was 0.23 grams. A good start to my new month (month starts the morning after the monthly Gold Prospectors of the Rockies meeting. We have a contest for most gold found. I won in january, came in second last night for Feb...good friendly competition motivates me to get out there (as if the fever wasn't enough already!)

    Oh and my wife laughed at me for going out on such a cold day...what does she know :P
