    Strebs in the Mtns

    Hello all, I thought I would share what I've been doing at my mining claim. Been out here for a few weeks, learning the claim and brushing some trails in. A bunch of old workings in the main arroyo, I'm working the head of a feeder right now because the bedrocks close by .

    This was my main sleepin spot. I've had 2 mountain lion encounters since I've been here. Think they want the pup. We tree'd a big male, thought about shootin it. I called the FS instead but they weren't willing to do anything at that time. Time to find a camper

    Here's my little setup, I take 550 gallons of water out and that has lasted me the month. My dirt is so hard, this homemade trommel breaks it up pretty well.

    I have been debating getting a second dog, more eyes the better. I came out of the mountains for the 4th of July, been extremely dry here, I don't trust the yahoos with fireworks, been some bad fires this year already.

    This claim butts up to some patented land, the old-timers didn't find this vein structure until the mid-1930s, lots of hard rock mines that run along the bridge of the mountain. My neighboring claim owner has been living out here for 20 some years, has been teaching me a lot. Very thankful to have someone else out there. He calls it a Porphyry deposit, his side of the mountain has large amounts of skarn material. My side seems to have the mass of the porphyry monzonite.

    This is the start of the arroyo is very narrow right here, basically, the top of the bridge. After here it widens 3x its size shortly after, which, will be my next pit. I muck it all off take the bottom 6 inches. Hopefully, get back out this Wed, still need to get supplies and do some maintenance on the equipment.
