    Sluicing Question for CA

    I had a claim in the Klamath Mountains for 25 years...The last four or 5 years I set up a gravity dredge by hauling in a bunch of 2.5" PVC and running it up the creek about 400 ft. ... I had a drop of about 60+ ft. which gave me around 30 pounds of head ... I used a suction nozzle and my Gold King dredge sluicebox and about 50 feet of fire hose .... It sucked as well or better than my 2.5" dredge...I didn't to it to hide...I did it so I could enjoy the silence while not having to mess with a motor or gas, etc. ....I did just as well or better than using a motorized dredge and it was much more pleasurable...It's a technique that is easier than the motorized dredge ... If your situation has the drop I recommend going through the hassle of setting up the pvc line... Cheers, Unc

    Just an FYI to the guys comparing the Streakstik to the tiles: The Streakstik is much harder in Mohr than simple tiles and will put an amazing finish edge on any blade ... Plus the handles are printed on our own bank of 3D printers and fit the hand snugly ... Meteorite? Meteorwrong? Check it out! Cheers, Unc

    I've seen quite a few over the past 20 years, including 3 that live on our property...Most are about 12" -18" long, but I did see one that was about 26" out near the Vulture Mine ... They actually are somewhat common in the Wickenburg area ... I have seen a bunch out in the LSD area thought out there they seem smaller only aroud 14" +/- ... Cheers, Unc

    Weaver Mining District

    OK, All, I've had a couple of meetings with Steve Hill of Weaver MD and he's provided the info I need to go to work on the Weaver MD Club Claims map ... It'll take me a few weeks to create them then a bit to get the club's approval and then I'll have them to order and Weaver will have some as well ... The club is $75 per year and the claims are well proven prime Rich Hill area producers..Cheers, Unc

    Weaver Mining District

    Yo all...Does anybody know the current status of the Weaver Mining District prospecting club? ... Both of their phone numbers are disconnected ... I'm fixing to edit some of my club claims maps, adding some new clubs and deleting one or two ... Also will create new maps soon...Uncle Ron's Club Claims Maps are intended to promote membership and respect for the various prospecting clubs and admonishing against claim jumping ... I'd sure appreciate any Weaver info ... Clay? Anyone? Thanks..Cheers, Unc

    Bill's latest YouTube on mineral and meteorite identification shows our new StreakStik I invented ... We print the handles on our 3D printers and they are awesome...Working with our graphics artist, Lauren Alexander, we got our new logo and web page up today ... We'll be getting refinements over the next few days, but you can view the basics and even order a StreakStik if you'd like...Remember, these StreakStiks are not only good for meteorite, rock and mineral identification, but they make amazing finish sharpeners on knives ... Check them out at StreakStik.com Cheers, Unc ... (PS, if you haven't seen Bill's video on using the StreakStik, check it out here:

    Weaver Mining District

    No, not specifically ...My maps show the locations of club claims ... Anything more than that is like herding cats ... There lots of maps available that do show land status ... Used to have program that detailed location different status but the program is now outdated and won't work on modern machines .... Cheers, Unc

    Weaver Mining District

    Weaver is moving office back to Les Bender's old office at the Arrowhead...They'll be in there pretty soon ... Apparently there have been BLM issues that all but shut the club down for the past few years...Now, however, it appears the issues have been resolved...The club filed a bunch of new claims ... I'll be meeting with them to get coordinates next week ... It's all good. ... Cheers, Unc

    OK guys, I just got off a long phone call with Dan Jacobs of Weaver (Thanks Nugget Bob) and bottom line is that the club is starting back up again, with a bunch of new claims ... Dan said the new claims, most in vicinity and south of Decision Corner, are very good claims ... down toward the area the famous Tongue Nugget was found. I'll be working with Dan and others to create an exclusive Weaver Mining District claims map ... Prob take a month to finish but my Rich Hill map will promote Weaver MD exclusively and will no longer promote Road Runner PC, ever! RRPC was good for a long time and the members are awesome peeps. My decision has nothing to do with the rank and file who all are great folks... But now they've got some politicians on the board of directors that do not have the best interests of members at heart and I won't have them on my maps any more...The way it is, movin' west! Cheers, Yer Unc in the Dubyah

    Endangered species cleanup

    My niece and also a friend of mine who worked for the USFS both admitted the spotted owl thing is a total hoax that never existed as an endangered specie ... My friend used to run around the woods doing her special spotted owl hoot and I started laughing at her ... I had a bunch of not spotted owls on my place and in the surrounding area and knew there were none anywhere nearby...When I laughed at her she said, "Do you know how much I get paid to hike around the woods? It's a great job and one that won't end for many years ..." ... That was 30 years ago, and the last I heard she still gets paid to hike, but has never found a single spotted owl...Ha ... Finally the usfs admitted a few years ago it was a scam... (Not their lingo of course) ... But it cost hundreds of thousands of jobs in CA and OR! Cheers, Unc

    Awesome new technology we're enjoying

    I left CA in 1998 for AZ ... I am so glad we did...And I lived in a ranch many miles into the Klamath forest and my place was the last home for 80 miles to the coast .... I felt then that enviros had become ridiculous ... I was so remote that I didn't have to worry much about any laws (except fish & game) who busted me for shooting a doe off my front porch when it was feeding on one of my apple trees ... CASUCKS! Cheers, Unc
  25. Thanks for the valuable info, Doc ... I never put shipping tracking on anything but a private email between me and the buyer ... Cheers, Unc
