    Easy Gold


    Sunday sluice trip made it out to a small creek while everyone else was at the mining summit in Placerville. Worked a couple buckets in one spot and wasent impressed with the results, so I moved down stream a bit to a spot with more bedrock. Did some testing and found a better patch of gravels on bedrock. While hard at work Dagreat showed up what a pleasant surprise, I talked with him earlier and thought he wasent gonna make it, so I headed out. Dagreat was driving down the road and spotted my car and came down for some prospecting with his metal detector. It was nice to have some company, plus my last sluice pan was so nice I dident finish it and left it in the pan so Dagreat got to see what I was finding. Pictures show secret spot and a few classified 5 gallon bucket clean outs.

    Getgold, I love this little sluice it holds the 100 mesh gold plus smaller. I had a nice picker a while back bordering nugget, the sluice was flowing fast in the north fork of the yuba and the pc stayed in the flair right where I dropped it in. I like to sample with this sluice because to clean it out u put it in a bucket and wash about 2.5 gallons of water through and done, put it in the creek, no expanded metal or carpet, makes it light and easy to carry in. The sluice also is very efficient it dosent leave me with a lot of material to process, makes for a quick pan so u can see what your getting.

    I live CT and all of our gold is very small. I started with one of Angus's sluice and had good luck with it, but I had to move a lot of gravel to get a little gold. So I got his omega highbanker, I also got the 2.5" drege to go with it. Now i just need time to get out! The clean up is the best part it is so fast, I have tub I put the cons in and then back to work.

    Love this little spot hit a nice little pay streak and its close to home. Pvillehunter I am not sure about Saturday but will try an shoot for it but the wife may have other ideas that sound more appealing to her. I am going to run the blue bowl today and see what slipped by while I panned out the biggest stuff creekside. Should be quite a bit of fines as I saw it rolling by with the black sand, when you start seeing a bunch of fines it fires me up to keep picking away at the gravels. I fast pan the sluice run to see whether I am still on the gold and save the cons for the blue bowl. I hope Caminochaos can make it out Saturday would be great time to get us all together.

    Pville,
    Ya you know its shady with just the right touch of sunshine poking through the green trees to see the au shinning at ya!! Wont bother me one bit to head back and scrape that bedrock some more. I left at least a 20 foot section of the gravels on the bedrock untouched, just couldent scrape it all up quick enough..lol

    Nice job GW. Looks like you used a 1/2" classifier. About how many classified 5 gallon buckets did you process? thanks

    I think in the two days I must have done 12-14 five gallon buckets.
