Re: Somebody has to be doing something

I have not been up there since last summer Mike. But when I was there the road was passable all the way to Negro Creek. It is gated beyond Negro Creek, private property. It should be OK since it is a county road and I see county pickups on it frequently. Also the guy that has private property has to...

Re: Somebody has to be doing something

OK here's the recount of my mining in an old hydraulic pit last summer. Even though the club motto is "miners helping miners", I am not going to reveal the location I was working. This is not because I am hoarding it to myself, anyone else can work there that finds it. I would personally like to see...

I'll post about it la...

Re: Somebody has to be doing something

That's what Steve Herschbach always said Harry. In order to find gold with a detector you have to get the coil over it. :lol: Sounds simple, but it is the hardest part, aside from patience, which I am weak on.

Re: Somebody has to be doing something

I was envious when I was in Alaska and saw you do that, I remain envious. That is a special example of what can be done with the right detector and patience. Patience might be defined as long hours learning what your machine is telling you and doing it in the right place. Thanks for posting the pic,...

Re: Somebody has to be doing something

You beat me to it Harry. Glad someone reads the FAQ's. Your post will help others.

Oh, btw, nice gold. Was the gold shown detected or some other way?

The River

The Klamath has been very low this summer, right up until two days ago when they released water from the dams. With the release we got higher than normal water flow and depth and lots of green algae. But they stopped releasing water and today the river is back to the low flow we had before the relea...
