  1. Sad to hear that, Jim was a great guy for sure...
  2. Great finds always it's patience and perseverance....
  3. Very nice Bob, looks like a cousin to the chunk I found there....
  4. Yep there's lots of iron parts in the ground at Jack Wade, Years ago I was privileged to meet the old miner that had a lot of property there. A very nice old timer and he gave me permission to hunt on his claims..He wanted me to check with him everyday and I thought that was more then fair..His cabin was on the claim that has most of the buildings still intact.. I laugh to myself still, about him calling me the Detective ... I had good luck on the claims in fact I'm still part owner of some ground on the lower end of the valley....Here' a. Photo of typical JW gold, heavy. Shotty nice looking nuggets. That piece came out of a bedrock crack that produced about 9 nice nuggets, this one is 1.5 ozs.......
  5. The lesson here is this, hunt where gold has been found before, move rocks, rake the ground a little, they didn't get it all.....
  6. Great story and nice gold too. Hard won for sure.....
  7. Don't look any further you found a dandy, always wanted one myself....
  8. Great finds, the GPZ is a great unit, I saw first hand how dangerous it is to hunted ground in the right hands. Lol
  9. Absolutely, if you are recovering fine gold you can't have enough sluice, also you need the best mat the full length of your box..Actually the triple sluices worked very well as the fine gold was transferred to these side boxes where the water slowed giving the fines a better chance to drop out..taken out of the crashing mainstream gives you a better fines recovery rate. You will read about undercurrents the old timers constructed to recover more fines, this is the same process slow the water down .....If you read about the old time dredges some of them had an awful lot of sluice box in them.. Another thing you can do is experiment with sluice plates with different size holes you can make these yourself......
  10. Yep I know for sure where that came from. Nice photo......
