    • June 24   1937     Part Two      Will and I resumed our digging after lunch. I decided to attempt to get an idea of where the back wall of the kettle ran so we dug across the top gravels and followed the solid rock wall in a westerly direction until we ran out of room to dig. We had gotten a good thirty feet west of our initial discovery and were in undug gravels again so were temporarily stopped out in that direction. We would have to open up more ground by going back outside the hill and working in with a drift heading from south to north to determine if the back wall continued further. There was nothing to show us it didn’t at this point.    So we went back over to the east where we discovered the wall and started digging down. Country rock was hit at about eight feet in depth. It seemed to have a gradual slope towards the south which told me the country rock would most likely deepen some.     Will and I took pans full of gravels over to the wash tub. We slowly panned them out and could see the heavy gold that started to show itself amongst the black sands. There were small nuggets and pickers and loads of coarse. It was a bonanza. We set the pans down in a shady spot and took seats on a log. I pulled a metal flask of whisky out of my back pocket and we had a swig. Then a few more. I laughed until I couldn’t laugh anymore. Will looked at me in wonderment. I told him this is where the ghosts of Jed and Whiskey Jack had been pointing. They had been showing us the way and were sure as hell watching us right now. I told him I had a feeling we were opening up a massive gold vault.       TO BE CONTINUED .................
    • Great to stay away from things you don't understand.  That way you don't make me cry again.  No,, but really,   Better to keep your mouth shut.  And be thought a fool. Then open your mouth and be proven a fool. So, you got that part right.. Smartman..
    • Rather than commenting on things I don't think are meteorites, I've decided to only comment on things I do think are meteorites.  Stay positive.
    • Only 3 peices? You would need more of them for a suit.🙏
