    A edible mushroom; this one was kinda small,.only about 2 pounds...they get to be up to a foot across! Usually dried and sold by the ounce to restaurants. We ate this one sauteed in butter with onions and garlic.

ID:	665988First pic, 13.5 ounce quartz cobble, about 7/8th size baseball, specific gravity test
    shows about 3.25 ounces gold - found in loose overburden 2 feet down from surface while dredging with Keene 4 inch. Spotted it before it entered suction nozzle, or it would probably rolled right on through due to amount of quartz. Second pic - after spotting a 2 dwt "baker" lodged in a large vertical pressure
    crevice, we spent a month trying to reach bedrock. Water was 2 feet deep, then 8 feet of large loose cobbles and boulders up to a thousand lbs. When
    we finally hit bedrock there was the gold, laying in a little trough parallel with the current. it took about 3 days to advance a foot on bedrock due to big and unstable boulders trying to slide into the hole. The gold ran out in ten feet but it was sure fun while it lasted! Pic is a portion of my share.

    I had a spot just like that,and there is still gold down there.No matter what I did I couldnt clear out the cobble to stabilize the hole,never have had such a perfect storm like that hole was......took out 5 ounces though

    I remember seeing the crystal thread, but the gold piece was the one I was in love with. Nice finds, both

ID:	666095 This is the view from my little tent Saturday morning. And then back in 2010 I had the pleasure of detecting, panning, sluicing out this ole heavy stuff that I don't even know why I bothered with it as it is quite heavy to carry out.

    Finding GOLD
    Great finds herb, tasty berries, a view to die for and oh yeah some of that yellow stuff. I hope it catches on as well. Pville hunter mentioned that the board was getting clogged up with all the negative news, and I have to agree that I found myself participating in those threads. I thought this might change tenor of the board. I got to thinking that I would much rather read about finds, strategies, equipment, anything but all the negative buearcratic stuff. So bring on the unusual, the usual, the artifacts, scenery, whatever...
