    RookmanGold in Switzerland

    2017 over and out...

    Spent this morning reworking 2017 paydirt. Not a bad 2nd recovery! I think I ran it through too fast first time round...

    RookmanGold in Switzerland

    So here it is... low season. Slipped on ice a coupla weeks back and fractured my knee. Luckily no surgery needed... but Iíve got to keep a brace on for 6 weeks and then recovery. All I want to do is put dirt through a sluice. I guess this is how you define patience.

    Sihl River

    Nice Sunday afternoon, I thought Iíd go to a local stream and try out my knee after I broke it just before christmas to see if iím fit enough to get back to it fully.

    I didnt expect to find any gold, it was more out of desperation to get going at my normal location.

    First pan... there was it was... tiniest little flake, but its still gold in my local river! Totally unexpected 🙂

    My knee is good to go as well ...

    I find that Gold and Knees are similar, they both take constant exercise and patience. Glad you are doing well!...............63bkpkr

    Triple Confusion

    First real day back in the saddle after my dodgy knee... new spot, really remote. I called it triple confusion becuase I just couldnít work out where the gold was to begin with!

    Had to move the big boulder you can see in the photos.. verrrry heavy... I was imagining ending up trapped like that dude in utah as I did it

    Panning only or did you use a sluice?

    Beautiful area. It looks like it may be a decent trout stream too.

    Good luck.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Fairplay Colorado

    Managed to get a couple of days in Fairplay (thanks to the advice of Kevin in Colorado).

    Had a great day today. Pretty bushwhacked now though given the jetlag!
