  1. We don't find many nuggets anymore but Curtis Roach who is one of our group found a nice one this summer. The nugget weighs 9.9 penny weight which is as close to a half ounce as you can get. Spence and Jimmie are making plans now for next years ocean dredging and I'm making some big plans for working our inland claims.
  2. A short video of Jimmie's clean up for today. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1922346284684841&id=100007284640290
  3. Aquachigger (Beau Ouimette) spent three weeks with us in Nome this summer and he has started posting his great videos on YouTube. This one is at our inland camp. He will be posting many more over the next few weeks.
  4. We rarely say how much but a lot more than two ounces. More fun to let people guess. That clean up represents 40 hours underwater dredging.
  5. Report from Nome Spencer did another clean up at Nome River in our clean up box. This is his gold from the last two weeks dredging in the Bearing Sea. He goes home tomorrow and will come back in August. I will be going back inland in a few days to resupply Bruce. Jimmie fixed our red Ranger so both six wheelers are working now. Now that we do almost all of the repairs on our vehicles and everything up here is paid for the gold being found should be more than expenses this year. Last year Spence spent more than he received and found in gold. Most of the dredgers and dredges here in Nome have
  6. Report from Nome We traveled 46 miles out Council road to East Fork Solomon River and unloaded vehicles. Left trucks and trailers and went up the river eight miles on four off-road vehicles. The water was a little too deep and we had several water related problems. After the Solomon we went up on the corduroy road made from cross ties from the old abandoned railroad and into the mucky tundra. This starts the hard part of the trip. Four miles through muck and the Casadepaga River to get to our Monument camp. We have 200 acres total located in three sites along creeks and rivers. At Monumen
  7. That was 11 days dredging. Much less gold now than years ago. Spence and I have been coming 25 years.
  8. $2000 per month per person. We will also help with training on equipment and some transportation and support in Nome. What would be best is a club or group of people who would come for a week, two weeks, a month or whatever. For a group or club like this we would only charge $5000 and they could divide amongst themselves. We are spread too thin for us to be able to spend enough time ourselves at our inland operation. We spend most of our time dredging in the Bering Sea and live at our Nome property. We have four ocean dredges and two inland dredges and not enough people to use everything that
  9. No job. This is an Alaska adventure. Pay your own way and keep your gold. We furnish the camp, the claims and equipment. All other expenses such as food,gas and ATV rental are not included. Call for more information 205-672-9310.
  10. Most of the video clips were last summer but some were from 2015. I just assembled them to show some of what is around. The dredging was this past summer. The jar of gold is one of mine. I've been mining in Nome for 25 years.
  11. I finally got around to making a not very good video of our inland operation about 60 miles from Nome. We spend most of our time working our sea dredging operation and we need to have people who want to operate the inland operation. This would really be good for a gold club or group of people. Call me Steve Phillips 205-672-9310
  12. If you are looking for workers for next season inland mining I'd be interested. I work circles around 9.9/10 people I meet, am 26 with no kids nor any real commitments at this time, am a total gold junkie. Fairly good at prospecting new grounds as well. Shoot me an email if you want to chat more.
