    • Cool story Bill, Ive hiked all through that area when I was a teenager. There are allot of small caves in the black cave area just E of Castle Hot Springs. Your right about the Hohokam stuff some of the caves were packed with pottery and stone tools. Would be interesting if you knew where the Apaches attacked them, that would be a good starting point.  DP
    • Here's another one I've had for awhile.  I found it in Greaterville last year.  It was the 'black' nugget from my original post.  Cleaning it in hydrogen peroxide and baking soda allowed the good stuff to shine through.  It's around a third of a gram.
    • I started to read this book last week while on vacation. It was hard to put down! One of the best books I have read along with Diary of a 49er and Bacon and Beans From a Gold Pan. It's hard enough to find time to prospect these days let alone read a book, but flak says it correct.
    • Sent you a link in yer Msg's to pictures an details.  
    • This 'winter' has definitely been weird for us here in Az.  I guess it's winter conditions right now as this storm system moves through, but overall, it's been minimal precipitation and warm temperatures. It's actually cooler down south since Greaterville is around 5000 elevation.  Either way, it's great weather for hunting around these parts.   Hopefully things will thaw out soon enough for you guys and you'll be able to get out and find some more shiny.  Take care and stay warm.
