    Hi Barry, hope you are well. First, a couple rants: 1: I'm not liking this new TNET format as I can't find a "private message" option. And 2: Also not liking the MLRS. Because of the #1 rant, I won't elaborate on my questions for you here. Can you shoot me an email at: mdp169@gmail. com...
  2. Oregon trip

    Sorry, TRS is Township, Range, and Section. Most Topographical maps will show these.
  3. Gold Recovery Below 100 Mesh

    No matter how old mercury is it can still be processed with a retort. It will still leave the gold behind.
  4. Oregon trip

    Know your TRS and look up the County recorder. Sometimes they have records available online, but most times you'll have to go to the office. You can make copies of legal claims there.
  5. Gold Recovery Below 100 Mesh

    Basically mining is banned in California unless all you use is a garden spade and pan. Mercury is a naturally occurring element. It can show up in your sluice or pan at any time. I was running old BSC one winter in my blue bowl and low and behold, a large BB of mercury appeared. I just let it...
  6. Question About Miners Moss

    I'd start by running a test pan on the tailings before doing anythin to your sluice. If you have significant gold passing through your sluice, I'd try something different. Try changing the angle and flow of the sluice first.This will give the fine gold a chance to settle on your carpet. Then...
  7. When is the best time to go to N,California

    I'm a little farther south and east, we normally get started in May depending on the Sierra snow. There have already been fires in the Shasta area.

  9. M & M Mining the Northern Sierras

    News Flash: I rented my spare room to a rock hound and he'll be out here ready to dig in a couple weeks. Since my area is good for looking for crystals, we'll be spending some time looking/digging for a different shiney stuff. He also loves the gold search so he'll fit in here nicely. Here's...

    Cancer Update: I'm happy to report that I have kicked the first of two cancers in the A$$. As treatment continues for the second cancer, prostate, I'm receiving hormone therapy to lower my testosterone. This treatment has a bad side effect I call "Manopause". Yup hot and cold flashes every...

  12. M & M Mining the Northern Sierras

    The Christmas day snow storm delayed the start of cycle 4, but didn't affect the 12 hour smoked prime rib. I got up Dec. 26th to nearly four feet of snow and as I tried to go for treatment, my truck was pushing snow over the hood. I had to call and cancel. It gets worse from here. During the...
  13. Anyone know if Hefty is still

    I've talked to him a couple times this past year. He had some joint surgery that has effectively taken him out of the gold game. I understand that he can now set off every metal detector at an airport with some new joints that were installed over the years. I'm still hoping that once my...

    Scan results: Gotta love them. The results show a 75% reduction in the tumor that is in my right Pelvic area, and nearly gone from other lymph nodes. Doctor's prognosis is one more cycle (four in total) that will end January 2, a new scan a couple weeks later then discuss the next step of...
  15. M & M Mining the Northern Sierras

    Today marks the beginning of the third cycle of chemo. I'm already getting meaner, CT scan is scheduled for December 1, this will hopefully show some progress and help determine how many more cycles I'll need to go through. I expected at least four cycles and I'm hoping that will be all...
  16. 9/8c, Frozen Gold Sunday, Nov. 14,

    I'm watching American Gold: The Legend of Bear Gulch on Fox Business. It's kind of slow moving but interesting. Sounds better than an Ice Cold Gold remake.
  17. Glitch with MLRS closed mining claims

    By legally closed by the county, I should have said "quit claim deed" recorded by the claim owner. That is when the county recognizes that a claim is closed at the county level.
  18. Glitch with MLRS closed mining claims

    I always count on the County Recorder first. I once had the recorder in Plumas county tell me they didn't care what BLM says. If te claim isn't legally closed by the county, it still exists and will continue to be taxed, regardless of the BLM status of the claim.
  19. M & M Mining the Northern Sierras

    Had an appointment with the cancer doc yesterday. My blood cell count and platelet count are extremely low so he has delayed the start of cycle three for one week. He's ordering a scan and due to what could be dental infections, I'm now taking an antibiotic and an antiviral. It just keeps...
