Outing after July Meeting
« 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

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.

Five of us went on the outing after the meeting. Allen Trotter, Evan Trotter, Allison Trotter, Sam Capehart, and Don Staton.

We had a great time and all found some gold. Lots of Limonite cubes in the creek.

Following are a few pictures. I will post the gold later.
