How would you develop this vein.
A declined tunnel from here? A short shaft then drift?
Supposedly the ores get richer at depth in this area but it sure is nice being closer to the surface!
We proceed to jackhammer out buckets of gold bearing rock!
Now this is what it's all about!
Hope your 2021 is the best thing that ever happened to you😁🙌

I'm working on it Russ. So much goes into developing a mine, it's tough for the little shoe strap miner like me.
All we can do is try our best and keep on trying until something happens.

Follow the easiest gold and keep careful track of the values on a scaled sketch?

That is pretty weathered looking bedrock.
I would be thinking about detecting below that vein to see if there is float gold eroded down the hill.
I’m sure you have already thought about that.

I didn’t see detectors in the video.

Yeah, the top 8 feet or so at the surface is fairly weathered. You can see the roots and dirt working down from the surface.
This area has mostly fine gold but I have found a few pieces 1/8" plus so there might be detectable gold.
Now I need the snow to melt.
