    Happy Birthday Skip. Have a good one.
  2. I'm really disappointed. I thought this article was about Todd Hoffman.

    Odd Places

    As long as you're in gold country, there's often no rhyme or reason for gold being where it is. I've seen this many times and this is another example.

    3 pieces, unidentified

    Citrine is quartz that has small quantities of iron in it. You have a light yellow and brown layers. Those are citrine..You also have a gray layer which I'm not sure of.

    Rawhide Nevada

    Sounds intriguing. Hope you have a successful trip. Post pics of your finds.

    Rawhide Nevada

    The town of Rawhide is long gone since being devoured by a mine. So I think relics are going to be pretty scarce. As far as detectable gold, I assume you have the Nevada Gold Placer Deposits book by Maureen Johnson. I would check that to find out what kind of production they had and where. That should at least give you some idea.

    please help identify

    I agree. First and third pic looks like agate of some type. Second pic looks like pink feldspar in basalt.

    Cabin Fever Already

    I ran a four inch dredge in the Bradshaw's on Oak Creek during the summer a few years back. No better way to stay cool and find gold at the same time. Good luck and post pics.

    I found a thing in the dirt?

    It could have washed up on the beach from a sunken ship offshore

    Going to try something dangerous

    Yeah, watch out for those strings when they snap. They can do serious damage to your hand.
