Hello everyone....

Forum member "Oldman" has made his way to California for an adventure in gold prospecting.
He is on the "South Fork Trailhead" in the Klamath National Forest.
He sent me a few photos and ask me to share them with the forum.

I might be interested if my back feels good that day. Will bring a shovel and pan just in case. How long is the walk to the creek?

Any where from a few feet to a couple hundred yards.

Chapter Outings (updated 2019 outings) / Outing after July Meeting
« Last post by BigAl on July 05, 2019, 11:19:14 AM »
All,

After this month's meeting we will be having an outing available for interested parties. It is within one mile of our meeting location, and I will give the location during the meeting to whoever is interested.

It is private property, so there is a fee for access. We can stay until 5:00 and the fee is $20 per miner.

The waterway is a small branch that has mostly been untouched in modern times. I did sample it and found everything from fines to medium sized flakes. This will be panning only. It will also be good to bring a machete or weedeater to access certain parts of the creek as it is grown over in places. I attached a photo of what we found in about 4 hours.

Please let me know if you are interested.

Thanks,

Al
