it is going to take a lot of trips/time to placer this wash out. we barely made a dent in what needs to be checked out.
 im sure someone will come along and see our work and figure out that there is nuggets there. catch 22 i guess.

If it's tough for you to access, won't that be the case for them, even if they find it?  You're apparently one (and a half) step(s) ahead of them already.

Better to keep your mouth shut than take a claim. I took a claim out on a spot where I got 26+ ounces from first. All it did was bring it to everyone else's attention. By being careful I have had two spot that the wife and I got over 1 kilo from one and more than 2 kilo from another with out being followed by others and leaving no trace of working it for others to see.

Using the Neo Magnet did you have it covered with a cloth to help moving the black sand from it.

GB_Amateur earlier this year i went to a few incredibly hard to get to washes trying
to find some fresh ground. 2 of the places had unfilled dig holes that were a few weeks
old. still found a nice 1 gram nugget in one of them. another spot i found 2 guys getting ready
to detect the wash.
these are places miles from any trail access.
there is a lot of hardcore nugget hunters here in AZ.
the nice thing with the new wash is i have not seen any evidence of detectors having been there.
even the little bit of old timer miner trash 1930? maybe older, is still there in the gut of the small wash.

geof_junk, no cloth. i just pull it off the magnet. i did have gloves on, so not to bad. my mining partner is thinking
about getting a bigger magnet, like the kind they use for magnet fishing. too heavy to lug around i think.
im going to talk to my partner again about not claiming it.
silence is golden.
