    Though I appreciate your compliment, there is always the thread that inspired me to start this one.
    If you haven't been there, give it a try. Photos, humor and "Boots on the ground" stories. If your interests are metal detecting, dredging, or just about any type of gold recovery, you'll love Lanny's site.

    Thanks Oakview2!! This link was posted a few pages back. Actually, I started reading it with some anticipation, then ended up setting it aside with a measure of disappointment.

    They tout it as well researched, but even with my limited knowledge, there were too many omissions and errors to suit me. For instance;
    KING SOLOMON MINE (#1)

    Located at Bear Creek (#1), which is near Midpines, southeast of Briceburg. Actual location not determined, but it was in the Whitlock Mining District.


    I can't help but wonder how the actual location of one of the "Richest mines in the state of CA" can not be determined. Especially when you can stand on the side of hiway 140 and 'almost' see the portal less than 100 yards away. Kinda makes me wanna go; hmmmmm.

    I noticed quite a few 'located between Coulterville and Yosemite' myself Eagle. Interesting reading tho as we all don't know everything- not anymore anyway. I did when I was 16 or so but must have forgotten a few things.

    Amazing isn't it? Between the ages of 15 and 18 we know everything, then at 18 we get to mingle with the adults, then find out we know nothing.

    I am wondering if you are still planning a trip in August. My son and I just bought a new highbanker and are craving a trip to Briceburg

    Halito Oakview2,
    Absolutly!! Though I can't give an exact date at this time. I hope it will be about the 4th or 5th, but, I have a VA doctors appt. on the 30th of this month and I don't know but what he might schedual another appt. I can only wait and see.

    In any case, as soon as I know for sure, I'll post it in this "thread".

    Right now, I would really appreciate it if there are any of my readers who are familiar with the Merced and could tell me if the water flow is down normally, or lower than usual.

    Sorry about taking so long to answer, but my adopted son recently died from a heart-attact.

    Love and Respect,

    Eagle

    I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your son. My thoughts and prayer go out to you and your family. As far as the Merced, I spoke to some guys from Leemore that were camping up there and prospecting, but never really though to ask them about the water levels. I will post it on our club board and see if I can get a report for you.


    PS... You might check this site, has Merced River flow rates in the park and I believe a webcam

    Thank you!!

    Well, according to the graph, it looks about as low as it will get. At least for a while. Unfortunately, the flow in the park
    doesn't coordinate well with the flow 17 miles below the park. Too many side streams adding to it on the way down. (lol)

    Anything you can find out would be appreciated.

    I think this might help as long as you can decipher the information

    http://www.americanwhitewater.org/co...tail/id/42682/


    I posted a request for river conditons, but they have recently upgraded the board and it will not let me log in to retrieve the responses. Hopefully the above link will give you a ongoing real time glimpse of the flows at Briceburg..

    Halito My Friends,
    Well, I'm preparing to head up to the Merced River, but as usual, I'm short on cash and long on plans. (lol)
    So, I've spent the past week preparing some opals that I will be trying to sell. (For the needed cash).
    I thought you might like to see 2 or 3 of them. (Out about 30 that are ready to sell).

    Precious opal is difficult to photograph under the best of conditions, and I found out that in direct sunlight is definately
    NOT the "best conditions"!! (lol)

    Anyway, just for your enjoyment........

    Ready for a trip.

    Hokay. For those of my friends who are interested and have the time, right now,
    my intentions are to be on the Merced River by noon, Tuesday, 08/07/12.

    I'll probably be there for a week or so. So, if you can make it, you will be welcome.

    Hope to see you there!!

    Eagle

    Eagle, don't know why I can't seem to find this thread, but usually hit active topics and came across this. Tommy, owner at Airport Inn (Mtn Bullion) 'said' he heard they were dumping Lake McClure. Wouldn't have much effect on waterflow above.
    Working bout everyday, including weekends, getting real old! May wander over again next weekend if you're gonna be in same spot.

    I would really love to have you be there. As far as I know, I'll be at the same spot, which I forgot to mention above.
    Look for me at Railroad Flats. (The last campground downriver). At least for a while. Then I might move up to
    McCabe Flats, to be closer to where I intend to work.

    Incidentally, I put the wrong day/date above. Should have been; Tuesday, 08/07/12
    Sorry, I forgot that I had something to do Monday.

    Eagle
