    Some Gold with OwenT

    I figured itís about time I start one of these to share some of my prospecting finds/adventures.

    First of all I would like to express my appreciation to all the good and knowledge members here that got me started on the journey and have kept the fever alive, especially while I was still trying to find my very first gold all by myself.

    Recently Iíve been doing a lot of mineral collecting and gold prospecting has been taking sort of a backseat but yesterday I got out again for a proper day of sluicing. I went back to a spot I found that was kind of ďhotĒ on the river in W Washington. I found it last week while poking around different spots after my plan A didnít work out. Itís been a while since Iíve used my Bazooka but I broke it out for this spot and it did really well. This is actually one of my biggest cleanups ever, if not the biggest. I canít remember. .93 grams including a 1/4Ē flake weighing .08 g. Itís quite thin but I was really surprised to see such a big flash in my sample pan! Unfortunately that was the only one that big.

    Weíll see if I do much more gold mining this summer in Washington but I hope to find some spots in Utah when (if?) I go back to school. Time to get some desert gold!
