  1. Can't get any worse than already is on social media. Twice recently I've vacated my FB page until getting more than 100 new notifications. After about 106 they stop telling you how many.
  2. Like the Australia gold prospecting forum did with Covid discussions, make a board for it so, threads don't pop up in with gold topics. Simple to control if you confine it.
  3. I deactivated my Twitter account several months ago. Might be good to have the political board to help members sort things out.
  4. Happy Birthday to you Skip!
  5. All of us ran fevers, but my dad who has turned 90 years already, got it last and many times worse tan all our symptoms put together. Monday night, the 14th (?) got so dad could not stand up, coughing stuff out of his lungs. It was that bad already about 3-4 days. He tried to crawl up the stairway to his room but only got halfway up with me helping. That turned out to be good because stuff drained out of his lungs all over the steps. After began improving right away... probably because now getting more oxygen. We had sleep down in the family room for the night. About 5:00 AM in the morning dad got up by himself and walked up the stairs, used the bathroom up there, then to his room. Dad made the most remarkable recovery.
  6. Right now, I can't even mention what we just went through... it started Memorial Day weekend on Saturday morning. Today is looking good, looking like we probably made it through.
  7. Hope Don is ok! I think we are just getting over Covid here.
  8. It's Arizonz Bureau of Mines, bulletin 168, date 1961 reprinted 1981, 1988, and 1994. (was) Currently the Arizona Geological Survey. Copyright: 1961 Board of Regents of the Universities and State College of Arizona. All rights reserved. It is thick as any book you would buy.
  9. It was pretty bad there for a while, hope things do get better now.
  10. The placer history, covers amount and size of nuggets recovered at Rich Hill, Goodman wash, other placer mining operations.
  11. No, I don't publish them, all 3 have light yellow covers, look about the same from the outside. They should have publishing date, other info inside the cover. Both Arizona mining books were ordered directly from the University of Arizona, probably around mid 1990s..
  12. I looked on the shelf and located the 2 mining history books. Also surprised to find one for Nevada placer mining. Forgot I had the book, but remembered all the different locations of coarse gold/nuggets in northern part of Nevada. The southern point area had a few fine gold sites.
  13. I'm thinking my book from University of Arizona, Bureau of Mines publication on mining history mentions Lynx Creek. I got the Arizona mining book from them back in the 1990s. Actually it was 2 books, covering placer mining in one and lode mines in the other. A few claims produced some huge monster nuggets. Lynx Creek, it might of had a spot where bedrock was shallow and mostly a fringe area. Been so long since reading the info, hope my memory is correct.
  14. GPAA had a travel gold prospecting video on YouTube (back a few years) on Lynx Creek. Don't know if it is still up, but the results were rather disappointing. Maybe one of our experts on the forum could give you some insight.
