9th November - Sihl #1
Normally I go to a creek an hours drive away... today I thought I’d try my local river... 10 minutes drive away... 30 minutes of sluicinng revealed its worth pursuing! Am so happy... an evening of sluicing is a real opportunity now... very happy
1st November - Coin Bank
Somewhere totally new... totally apprehensive... and it rained... persistence really does pay off though 🙂 A late start to the season and now trying to pack the trips in before the snow comes....
Ive named it coin bank because a coin turned up in the sluice!
Happy New Year all!
Im thinking of making a trip to Montana in May-June to get a bit of gold.... Does anuone have any tips?
I will be travelling from Europe so would look to rent a sluice if thays even allowed? or possible?
Any thoughts would be great...
Happy New Year all...
Bought a small sluice for fines and am working through all my old heavies from previous trips.... very satisfying. I’m lucky enough to have a small creek outside my house.
I will be over from Europe at a conference in Vegas early December.
Can anyone point me in the direction of somewhere to do a bit of panning / sluicing in Arizona? Somewhere near Jerome maybe?
Any members or clubs who would be happy to help an Englishman find his first Arizona...
Granite Post Falls
Back to GPF after a long summer break. The last clean up as all the gold dried up every which way I sampled.
Ok gold but time to move on to a new site. Trouble is i’m not sure where!
Granite Post Falls
Back in Switzerland and one of those days where everything just clicks and is perfect... rounded off by a steady stream of good gold. (Just the bigger bits in the picture... plenty of fines to work through at the end of the season.) All finished off with a lovely swim.
First real day back in the saddle after my dodgy knee... new spot, really remote. I called it triple confusion becuase I just couldn’t work out where the gold was to begin with!
Had to move the big boulder you can see in the photos.. verrrry heavy... I was imagining ending up...
