    Be careful out there.

    I'll add to that list of gas hazards. This year in one of our restaurants at work the draft beer quit pouring correctly. I went into the walkin to check the kegs and immediately could tell something was badly wrong and quickly exited. I looked at the CO2 tank and the regulator was frozen up. Some jackals untapped a keg and left the handle open which dumped an entire tall bottle of CO2 into the sealed walking cooler. I could have died in there!!!

    Some Gold !

    The targets I dug today

    Way to go Luke! Nice job on reading the ground and using your detector. Sounds like at least one of those was missed by another detectorist if not all of them. Technique makes all the difference.

    Hillside fine gold

    I found out who the owners are, I might still contact them to do a lease or permission to small scale prospect, especially if I don't find anything as good in the area.

    Hillside fine gold

    Well, there wont be anymore updates on this spot. I messed up! After thoroughly researching this area for claims with the recorders I somehow missed the easiest claims to find, patented mineral claims and this spot is within one, whoops!! Of the 8 or so sections that make up this general area there is only a few patented claims. and unfortunately for me this claim did not have any signage or claim markers. Though, I am sure, because of the age of the claim that the markers have been knocked down or overgrown with brush. But, the good thing is, before I went back out to gather more samples and get anymore excited I thought to check the Yavapai GIS mapping for patented mineral claims just in case, as I was ready to file a claim here if things kept coming out hot. Normally I check the gis first and the validity of "claim" on the GIS but just didn't think of it this time and of course find some nice gold I cant have! So I'll be checking the hillsides next to the claim since its all wide open, all the ground looks the same and there is quite a few prospect digs. I still have high hopes for a good find around here. Sorry for the disappointment, I feel like an idiot!

    "One for Wednesday"

    Lots-o-bedrock! Glad you squeaked something out of there. All day while slaving away at work I kept thinking how perfect the weather was to go out prospecting, I'm jealous!

    Newcomers beware

    I see we have both a gentleman and a scholar. I for one like this thread, it brought everyone out of the woodwork. Also Wyo is nice enough to be cleaning up trash and leaving behind gold for the rest of us. Thank you! On a side note, since Mike C is gone, I'll lay claim to this emoji...Alwaysdirty .
