    Next trip, same spot but solo. Uneventful day really. No rain at least. Water was up and raging as it rained almost all week prior. Got to digging and running unclassified pans through my GGT. Had an efficient operation going so I had moved 40 pans in about 3 hrs and was tuckered out. Hiked up and out with a heavy bag of cons!Click image for larger version.

    Hi There mytimetoshine! Interesting looking two pans, is the picture of the Au on the scale the total of both those pans?

    I like your comments about being out there and what the water is up to which was expected from watching the water flow data for a general area of melt flow, hearing about it first hand always sends a chill up my spine. (or maybe it is a 'thrill')

    I would guess that when spring really starts up the flows will be even more interesting as well as even more dangerous than right now as well as still quite cold. Thank you for sharing your adventures...................63bkpkr

    63,

    Yes those 2 pans are what you see on the scale. One is the +50 and the other is the -50.

    The weather Geussers have indicated the possibility that warmer weather will be here in about a week. 'The River' is running almost 3x of typical for this time of year and has been that way for a couple of months. Maybe summer will arrive in June!

    It's getting harder and harder to keep the journal going to be honest. Just so much going on which is good but I may miss posting a trip here and there.

    So this is a while back and it's still raining all the time... soo ready for spring! Went out a few times solo. Water is super high and cold so I've been just panning high bank with waiters and long atlas gloves.

    This was the only nice day I took some pictures. Got good gold this day considering. about 3hrs work. Uneventful really just the way I like it!

    I did find a decent little picker but nothing fancy lol

    Hi MTTS, looking mighty nice even with the rain, freezing cold high water, the water looks a bit hazy so its carrying some dust particles but otherwise the area is nice! And of course at least you got to be out in the country for awhile which is always good. Glad it was uneventful as you like it!...........63bkpkr

    So MTTS, I'm guessing the weather has you holed up in some old mine shaft, hopefully a horizontal one! It is Not unusual to have snow in May but, why this year!!!?? Man I'm tired of the white stuff already! Hope all is well,...............63bkpkr

    Hey Everyone!

    I had to give up on the Journal. I started a business this year and I don't have the free time to keep up with it now.

    I've still been out getting gold as much as ever. Went out a couple times with Schoolofhardrocks, Goldwasher and Asmbandits

    Here is what I got for the year. About 20 grams

    I'll still be lurking on the forum and I'll try to post every now and then.

    I'M BAaaaaaaaaack!!!

    Crazy year heh? Personally. I was furloughed for 4 months from work. Bought my first home...(while furloughed). I thought I would be gold mining everyday when I wasn't working but that hasn't happened at all.. I had so much to do around the property plus I picked up a part time job. Got a puppy! All my free time is gone lol I barely went out for gold at all...back working full time at my regular gig.

    I did however get a little camping trip in with SOHR. Didn't get much gold but had a great time trying not to freeze to death at night(February!)...little buddy propane heaters ftw!!!! Melted my boots trying to dry them next to the campfire lol..

    Had a hand full of day trips here and there but nothing much. Xmas day I went out and found a little chispa at a new local creek that was probably the highlight of my year lol

    I just bought my own retort so I don't need to use my friends anymore...he moved to AZ!

    Had some mercury contaminated stuff on hand so I made my sponge and the picked up a "kwik kiln" for my first melt. It works like a champ but I had no idea how.much Flux to use. When I tried to pour into a little bar mold, the Flux just filled it and the gold stayed in the cup lol.. oh well it worked and I got a nice clean button. Click image for larger version.

    I bought my first home in April 2020. Shingle Springs, CA - 3 bed, 2 bath, 1800 sq ft. 700 sq ft attached "sun/mud room" 3.3 acres of usable land.

    There is a gold creek across the street. I have a small slice of land on that side of the rd, but it seems to have been "unclaimed" by the previous owners..doesnt reach the creek thats probably why. I talked with the guy who lives on one side of it and he is cool AF, said dig away. Have at it.

    1/10 of a mile down the road is Blm land access. Its claimed up pretty good, but when I checked there maybe some possibilities.

    Finally after like 8 months I got around to poking around lol.... went to the creek early morning last Saturday. Cold AF... first pan in some tree roots. Produced 2 specks!!! Not bad!
    ...but that was then followed by 3 skunk pans..... I was not even expecting water because upstream at the bridge is bone dry. No rain this year!!!!! Should be raging!!

    Down by this spot it takes in a feeder creek, so that had flow. I could have ran a small sluice had I known!... some nice dirty quartz in the creek.

    Sunday I took my pup Rambo for a little walk up the BLM "mountain/hill". I knew there was an active lode mine near the access. Didn't know how "active" but saw signs right away of very recent works. I explored the "area" but didn't bother going to his dig... as obviously he is active and I don't want to be that guy..lol
    .. I went up the rd until I got tired and it was getting over grown.

    The road goes up and over into some nice ground....with little quartz out cropping everywhere.. when I get wheels im going in!!!

    Some old handle bars on the side of the rd. What looks to be an old ditch with engine and pole with electrical. Click image for larger version.

    Prospector

    Often I think ‘bout those who first came

    In hopes of working land yet untamed

    The earth was good, the grass was green

    Cowboys, farmers, and loggers were keen

    Still, rumors of riches and wealth untold

    Brought others to seek their fortune, in gold

    And treasure was found, yes, indeed

    Just a hint at first, then they followed the lead

    Big discoveries and bigger expectations

    Gave need for more hands to perform excavation

    Some companies employed miners galore

    Ten, fifty, a hundred or more

    Their work was oft dangerous, though the small wage they were paid

    Although some could be sly and sneak some high-grade

    The hire, he craved not glimmer of gold

    Except for which to pay the debts by him owed

    The prospector though, roamed alone

    Calling the untracked mountains his home

    Combing the streams and hills unsettled

    In pursuit of gems and precious metal

    “Tomorrow, I strike it rich”, he’d say

    Just to be skunked another day

    And though at times he’d have felt like crying

    He’d find just enough to keep on trying

    If he made a strike that was any good

    He’d keep it quiet as long as he could

    Once the news got out and the miners all came

    He’d pack up his kit and sell off the claim.

    “There’s richer diggings up North”, he’d hear

    So he’s grab the reigns and away way he’d steer

    And if he never found it, that’s okay

    He pined not for wealth anyway

    But for freedom, adventure and fresh mountain air

    And longing to know what’s just over there

    And as long as there was something to discover

    He would be out there, prospecting forever

    Now the camps are all gone, the mines mostly closed

    All that is left are some cabins, some holes

    Fortunes were made and fortunes were lost

    By road and by rail, the country’s now crossed

    The mines brought the people, the cities, factories

    But earth’s treasures are no longer found with such ease

    And what if they didn’t get it all?

    I head for the hills to answer the call

    To seek out my shiny yellow muse

    I follow their footsteps, just not in their shoes

    In place of a mule, I ride on machines

    Eating granola and McDonald’s, not bacon and beans

    Where miners were once admired and famed

    They now are harassed, reviled, and shamed

    Now money doesn’t come from shimmering stones

    It’s mined in tall building with computers and phones

    But some things of yore are still the same

    The mountains, trees, and stars remain

    As witnesses to the days long gone

    They bid me from the lowlands come

    And though I seek and never encounter

    I’ll always be a prospector

    i was scoping out that BLM the other day had an hour to kill so I drove by. Looks like four claims within the two seperate 80 acre blm areas. so, only half of the ground is claimed. i was gonna go to the recorder and look at the location notices.

    two of the lode claims are owned by the adjacent property owners They have a good bit of private ground too.

    Thats a cool area where you got ypur house I couldn't remember where your place was exactly. But, I rembered you were close to that area.
