    Recent gold results. On the left is from the honey hole I sent Utah Mason and Ultraminer to last week. On the right is from the panning tubs at the GPAA Gold & Treasure Show last weekend. I hit the tubs at the very end of the weekend so I wasnít taking gold out of a paying customerís pan. Funny how much -100 mesh gold was in there, just overlooked by all the newbies and kids

    Not surprising at all, in fact they expect it. That dirt that's panned is surely run again by GPAA.
    Lets say a bag of dirt costs the panner $10, each bag has $5 of gold, and the panner only recovers $3 in gold. They are happy for the experience, and GPAA gets all their money back after the show. Good racket

    Well, sorta. They donít run it again, they just haul it to the next show and add fresh gold there! The Denver Show was number 5 of 6 for the spring season. I figure the large amount of 150 mesh gold was accumulated over the 5 shows. Newbie panners wouldnít even see it in the pan!

    Just wanted to show off my banner. This was at the Denver GPAA Gold and Treasure Show a couple weeks ago. I sold a hundred books and had a ton of fun 🏻

    My wife and I went for a drive in gold country yesterday. I just love the way the snow highlights the arcs of the 100 year old dredge piles. Itís like art

    This spot is on the Swan River driving tour in Chapter E of my book

    This is my third year since filing the claim. Iíve decided to sell because itís a long drive. Iíll file on a closer spot later this summer most likely.

    Glad he didn't see you toss that picker in the pan when he wasn't looking to sweeten the deal! I may not post much anymore but i like to read the posts.

    I was in Central City/Blackhawk recently dealing with the county on claim paperwork. I noticed a usually-dry Gulch was running. The spot where John Hamilton Gregory had his Eureka! Moment is now city property where panning is allowed so I ran 6 sample pans. Got about 25 cents per pan in a super historic spot that kicked off serious mining in Colorado.
