    Whatever it is, it is valuable. If nothing else for the lesson learned or simply the experience of having been there.

    I have always wanted to try that.
    Sometime's there's not a right way, or a wrong way.
    Sometime's there's only one way.

    Where there is no economy, people will create one.

    Re: gold in them there hills still...

    This brings back memories. 60 years ago, my dad was into this hobby big time. He backpacked a 3" cast iron pump and a hugh Wisconsin engine about 4 miles up deer trails. He had it all apart and made many trips to get it up a creek feeding into the Rogue River near Grants Pass, OR. He was always filing gold claims that just happened to be on creeks that had virgin trout fishing opportunities. I remember as a 9 year old that the gold prospecting didn't go well but the fishing was fantastic. You live in some of the most beautiful country that I've ever seen. I was fortunate to have been raised there. Looks like you found a great spot. Now go upstream and show us where all that gold came from!!!!

    Still some In Pa. I found some Not even close to the nuggets in the pictures above
    Pinhead size but still gold and Fun to Prospect I had just found a New Site when Property owners threw up no trespassing signs ..
    picture got lost on my old computer but I can Tell you I Used a 10x magnify and the Pinhead was almost bigger
    My Pa Method is= bring home all the black sand,,, dry it out and then Look for gold ..
    Its just as Exciting when you See it! .. under the lens
