My wife and I got our first gold on the South Fork of the Nooksack today. It's not much, but we only ran about 1 five gallon bucket of gravel classified to 1/8 and run through a Angus Mackirk Foreman sluice. I had trouble getting the sluice to run right so there was a lot of time wasted, so I'm pretty happy with what we got, and yes I did the happy gold dance, which wasted more time. The gold looks bigger in person! IMG_0269.JPG

My wife and I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate the first day of summer than to head out to the river. We have had a busy last 12 months and hopefully we will be doing a lot more of this in the coming year.

And we picked up another .37 gram to add to the vial!

Couldn't quite hit it full time, but we've pulled over 2/3 of an ounce out of that one gravel bar over the last year and a half. 21.5 grams.

I forgot that the Everett watershed and PUD will lock the gates to the sultan for the holiday so I will hit the railroad bridge bar on the Sky
River's a little high there right now, but I imagine you know your way around that place!

Thats great, I should be able to run a sluice and besides the best gold is higher on that bench
Nice catch of gold that's accumulating for you.

Thanks for the pictures, and it's nice you're having fun chasing that gold!

All the best,

Lanny
