  1. Between cutting firewood, and gleaning the neighborhood citrus trees to give to the food bank, this is the first time I’ve had a chance to get out this month. I decided Sunday would be a good day to prospect one of the many areas I have marked on my geology maps. This area caught my attention because of a nice fault line running through it, and also because of the various geological changes. It’s in a known gold district, but hasn’t seen very much activity (claim wise) over the years, so I figured maybe it’s time to give it a look see. There’s a producing gold mine about 1/2 mile NW of where my prospects are located. I’m thinking (hoping more like it) that maybe some of those veins from that mine (or possibly other unknown deposits) may have leached out in some of the areas I have marked to explore. Anyway... here’s some video I shot of my day out... hope you all enjoy. Make sure to watch it in HD for the full effect.
  2. I've been exploring new areas around Yuma. Got way out there today and hit these guys. Obviously some kind of copper ore, but Yuma isn't known for copper production. I quit digging after six of them. They blow your ears away with the SDC, it could detect them easily at 18 inches, I didn't want to dig any deeper than that. They run from 4 to 6 ozt. Maybe they can be cut and polished, or maybe they cure arthritis, put one in each shoe and walk around all day. Hey Reno Chris, these are from out near Redcloud Mine, should I keep looking for gold near these rocks.
  3. I went back to the deep canyon this morning. I found 2 that I missed the other day. It seems peculiar that I found 4 quality nuggets in there with a total weight of over 1/4 oz, but nothing deeper that about 8 inches. The canyon is all bedrock with overburden ranging from 0 to about 2 ft. I covered just shy of 2 miles of this good looking ground and obviously had decent success, but just wondering what I might be missing. I found no nuggets on the margins of the wash, everything would have been right in moving water during heavy rain runoff. Today's fatboy was smack in the middle of the wash, but found a hidey hole in jagged bedrock. Perhaps when that new Minelab Super detector comes around, this spot will give up its secrets. Today's take, 3.3, and .4 grams.
  4. Bill Southern is hosting an outing at Gold Basin November 7th through the 9th. Details at http://www.nuggetshooter.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=27534 If the thread is any indication there will be quite a few people in attendance.
  5. Drove from Reno almost to Phoenix last night. Up before sunrise to see the sun rise on the Bradshaw Mountains this morning. Now off to beep for a little gold. Well, off to beep anyway. Gold optional!
