    Steve, We used to drywash at the bottom of 6 Mile Canyon. It is a lot of work for a few colors. Now there is a small cut at the bottom of Gold Canyon that you can drywash and find gold. If you run 6 to 12 buckets you should find a few grains of weight when you clean up. Section 22 is claimed. The spot is in section 23 and I think it is part of Dayton town limits. That should be double checked before digging. Majuba Tom

  3. Congrats New Member Steve Wandt

    Steve, I went back in the fall and detected the area on the way in that has some crystals and all of that shist. It was fun detecting the area. It looked real good but there were no nuggets that wanted to come home with me. After I was done detecting I went up and checked the spot out and some one did a test cut through the quarts. If you do go back I would take a screen to go through the piles that we were picking crystals out of. Let me know if you plan on heading back and I will see if I can get away. Regards, Majuba Tom

  6. Rye Patch Newmont Land

    The number I have for Newmont is to a Tom Roesch 303-837-5775. I was directed to him from the Reno office for any land questions. I never did talk to him however he did respond in a few days after I left him a voice message. I was checking on the best patch I know of by the Golden Eagle mine. Some might now the patch as The Big Easy. Here is the location if any wants to look and drool. T 35 N, R 34 E section 11. (The guys from the Golden Eagle set up no detecting signs and were also running people off from what I heard.) The responce was "We have minerals leased from Nevada Land And Resources. Not entertaining no leases out on that section at this time." I never called him back because it was a few days before our outting and I could not figure out what to ask next. :hmmmmmm: More digging needs to be done to find out the key players at Newmont and Nevada Land and Resources. Regards Majuba Tom

  8. I will be there on the 21st. Majuba Tom
  9. DRY GULCH #5

    O'29er, That is the only bad spot and it is at the apple orchard in Spring Valley not far from the claim. Just a quick little note about the apple orchard. Apple Orchard through me off when we first got there because it is small (I was looking for some thing bigger ). It is a few apple trees and some cotton woods. Lots of nice shade though. Average temps once you get in to July is High 90's to 100's. You are right there is alot of piles that need to be detected. Almost no dig holes in the area but plenty of old trash. Drywashin looks like it would be good in the cuts. One of the cuts was around 20 feet deep and about 100 feet long. I did some detecting of the side walls with my 2100 but was wishng I had my VLF with me. Now some of the areas look like they scraped material off of the side hills. I would like to detect those areas with my Vsat because the bed rock is so shallow there. Overall assessment :hmmmmmm: One would have to figure out how to hunt the property with a detector. Or which gravel layers to drywash then I think they could do well. Last note on the property. I did not see any signs of the current owners doing any work on it. Which was interesting to me because it looks to be in a good location. Roger, Thanks for getting those pictures up for me the look great. That did cause me to think of a little addition you might want to make to the web site. A simple link from the claims page to the assesment log of the claim that is being viewed. Regards, Majuba Tom
