    Info on Sawyers Bar area.

    Thanks David, actually, there isn't that much info on this particular area on the internet... The 'ol timers held a lot of secrets, and passed them on to only a few. I have done a lot of research, and countless hours of reading. I buy books every time I go out, and look for every opportunity to gain info on the area. Google is nice, but experience has taught me nothing replaces first hand knowledge. It is fun, and challenging to buy, explore, and prospect a property 1000's of miles from home. So much has happened in those mountains, with such enormous machinery, and labor. I am amazed at some things I see when walking around the mountain...so many questions. Unfortunately, google does not have the answer.
  6. Hi all, I am new to the forum, and have enjoyed reading many of the posts. I have been gold prospecting for some time, and I am hoping to do some detecting in Northern california. I own a few claims just outside of Sawyers Bar in Siskiyou County, and noticed there are some folks from that area here. The area is not only rich in gold, but history also. I would love to hear of any stories or experiences from anyone, if so kind enough to share. I own some acreage on one particular gulch, and will be spending some time there this summer. Knowledge is power, and I am lacking in this case...LOL. I have a good friend who spends a lot of time in the area, and I have learned a lot from him in the last few years about the mining history in CA., but the stories fascinate me, and I am hungry for any info on the gulches around Sawyers Bar... Thanks !!
