I really enjoyed your video. Deer in the orchard and beautiful scenery. 

I would imagine that if you keep working it some old coins and relics will show.

      The water is on the way for all you "gold seekers". Plus the lower Sierra foothills have been receiving an occasional flash flood the last couple of years. Removing old mine tailings and exposing new stream bedrock. The 2018/19 Sierra winter snow pack was from 150 to 200 percent of normal. Since June 5, 2019 the warmer weather has been sending lots of water down slope. Snowfall started on the night of November 21, 2018 and continues into late May 2019.  Since we can no longer use motorized mining equipment within 100 yards of any California stream I pick up a Gold Hog stream sluice. I have been successfully using GH mats in my high banker for awhile. Here are a couple of reference photos of the snowfall at 7040 feet above sea level on the Sierra west slope. The shack roof eves are 10 feet and the roof ridge is 17 feet above ground level. There are some old mountain pack trails to the east side mines within hiking distance on that shack. Stay Dry

      Hello went back to the spot of my latest trench and decided to dig one longer,i left markers last week which were still there on thursday but were gone on Saturday ...........so i left some this time heavy enough that u need a bit of strength to move those rock.......I was equipped with the 9"HF 1 spade ,1 pickaxe and 1 Hodan pick.Weather was ok not too hot.
      The pickaxe really helped to loosen the compacted gravel,and i think with a bit of practice i will getter better at it.I detected the spoil once out ,and it was very easy with the deus to switch 
      on and off.
       
      So i found:
      -1 Rose farthing
      -1 Nuremberg token
      -1 beautiful button from the 4th regiment of the East  India Company
      -1 roman coin
      -1 strap of some sort probably medieval.
       
      I did found anything while refilling the trench(which is good) and i more than happy with the result as i still got 100s of trench to do on that spot but also i am the only one allowed as most of the license holders are scrapping only🍌.I also found a pretty long clay pipe
       
      Enjoy the work out
