    Apparently it’s prospecting season for me! Got out again yesterday on the Arkansas River in Pueblo with a guy I met through my “Finding Gold in Colorado” FB group. Fun times and gold in every pan!

    What a fun trip! I really look forward to our fall trips. It was definitely on the cold side in the evening but great temps for digging. I'm going to make sure we bring my trailer from now on, chris's was a tad cold, in which I mean cold enough my bags of cons that were sitting on the floor inside the trailer were all frozen solid 😆
    I should finally have a minute to clean them up in the next week or so.

    My last October dig day. With Josh from the YouTube channel “ The adventures of lanky white guy”. We were digging in the Arkansas River in the city of Pueblo.

    Me out panning on the Rio Grande today - just upstream of where it crosses from Colorado into New Mexico. Proved to myself that there’s gold all the way through CO

    Finally got to the finish processing of my cons from a trip last month. The two big piles are -50 mesh gold. A bit over 1/2 gram in total. 2/3 of that produced in just 2 hours with only a gold pan and classifier!

    Really nice gold panning Kevin. Small gold to boot. This thread is certainly one of the most interesting and informative on the T-Net.

    Thank you,
    Mike

    Thanks!

    BTW I did the math: I had almost $1.50 of gold in every pan! If only there was a bit less black sand in each pan lol! Here’s a typical pan in the hands of my prospecting buddy Dennis.

    A lot of black sand. This amount would be somewhat typical of a pan in many areas of the Klamath River here in northwest California where I hunt/prospect.

    It looks like retirement is treating you well. Maybe next fall for me.

    Thanks, yeah retirement is a good thing! Although between the prospecting book I wrote, the trips (Alaska, etc), and moving, it’s been a busy time!

    For example I just now got around to panning out all my concentrates from the last few months! Here’s that gold in a soap dish:

    The top is from a dig site my club has access to on private property near Blackhawk, CO. The bottom is multiple sampling spots over several months.

    Good luck finishing your journey to retirement too!
