Hundred Year Floods

Recommended Posts

Flooding like nobody has seen in over 100 years is taking place in some of the historic gold districts of Montana, Idaho and beyond.  An impressive late season snow pack followed by warm temps  and rain has the rivers and gully''s a boom'n.  Material that hasn't moved in over a century is on its way. Time to get your detector, sluice box,  highbanker,  dredge suits, etc. ready.  Could be once in a lifetime prospecting opportunity,  still keeping in mind the property damage is extreme & tragic for many  and our hearts go out to them.

Most of the rivers affected will be like fresh ground again as it pulls the gold to where people can get to it.

Wish I had time to get to sluice some of those areas.
