    Catching up on posing my gold for pretty pics. This is Felix Pedro public site by the dime (love that 0.1 gram picker!) and Anchor Point on the Cook Inlet below.

    A collection of placer gold from my trip through the Pacific Northwest, western Canada and Alaska. Almost 2 grams in total.

    The row of chunky pickers is all from Chicken Creek right at the Town of Chicken Campground. Go there if you can!

    Paul Knowles is the Asst Director of the Museum of Northwest Colorado and a prospector (duh). A great guy and he was a real help in my book research in this part of CO.

    Sadly the handle on my old green lucky bucket broke. Easy to replace the handle or try to find a new green bucket?

    I have a serious case of gold fever due to not being in the river for several weeks. I think Iíll make time next week after Christmas.

    Meanwhile, to keep sane I wrote another article for my website. This one is a guide to buying an existing claim. For those of you who are curious or want to advise me on how to improve it, itís called How to: Buy A Mining Claim. The website of course is findinggoldincolorado dot com but I canít give an actual link since Iím just a regular member here

    I got out to scout a new dig site after Christmas. Way too much snow to be safe digging alone but the scouting convinced me to go back when access is safer in the spring


    Meanwhile, i feel like I can share this here: I just totaled up my book sales. The book came out on Amazon at the end of May. Since then Iíve sold over 1,250 copies via a mix of Amazon, Facebook and prospecting shops across Colorado. Iím just thrilled with the initial response to the book and the initial sales!

    Thanks to all here for your help building my knowledge and experience over the years.

    With your help I turned my passion for ďFinding Gold In ColoradoĒ into something that can change many peopleísí experience of casual prospecting in Colorado. This is already helping lots of Coloradans and many others from farther afield who dream of, or plan to, come dig Colorado paydirt. I even sold one book to a guy in Sweden - amazing!

    If you don't want that green bucket I'll pay shipping and handling to Oregon! However we all know it's your skill and not so much luck.

    Lots of interesting spots to dig and no evidence of other prospecting.
