  4. Spent 4 hours detecting on this claim. No gold found... --Jim--
  5. Welcome aboard Steve, Tom and I are looking forward to visiting your area whenever the snow finally clears out. Will be out looking here in N. Nevada when the weather breaks, so give either of us a call or email if you decide to hunt in our area this year.. My email: sabraj@charter.net Regards, --Jim French--
  6. Hi John and all, Over 13 grand is a good chunk of change and after the 1st of the year a goodly sum should be added to it! Thanks for the update... Probably no one remembers, but the subject was brought up about attempting to get some decent interest out of our membership $$ at the Nevada meet, which would pay for a lot of 4x4 posts etc. instead of coming directly out of the members pockets from payment of dues... (if dues is the correct terminolgy) Might be something we could discuss on this forum.. Regards, Jim F.
  7. Hi All, If the WSPA members that come to Nevada next year want Tom, Chris and I to work on a place that would be suitable for scraping, I'm sure something could be worked out by then.. Near surface gold has been hit hard in Nevada by detectorists from the surrounding states (as well as Nevadans) on a constant basis, as many of you discovered during our get together this last month, so some decent Cat work seems like a good idea in known patch areas where Newmont has the rights to... Chris, I think Tom has the phone number you were wanting, at least one of them... Anyway, the above w
  8. Hi All, First, I would like to convey my sincerest appreciation to the dedicated Southern AZ WSPA members who are working together to find claims for our Association.. Your posting agenda items that you-all covered will certainly be of help to members in other areas who may want to "get-together" and prospect for future WSPA claims.. The above, is exactly why I posted sometime ago about having at least 2-3 members in different areas of AZ (and why not Calif.) on seperate claims committees to help out with the organizing of prospecting trips in their respective areas to find new claim
  9. Hi Art, Hope you see this post... Would you please email me at: sabraj@charter.net Thanks, - Jim French - Dayton, Nevada
  10. Hi Slim. Thanks for the additional report on Ample Gold #2 & #3 in the claim usuage reports... It looks (to me) that there will be a lot of new stakes to install on our Nevada claims during our Sept. meet... The ol' Goldbug is hard to beat in some of our gold areas... I remember little Bill telling me that when he and Okie Jim and another guy, first hit that wash, (which is now Okie's wife's property) the first nugget was at 3 oz and then 2+, 1+'s, etc just kept coming.. I believe they were all using Goldbug's.. :;): Cheers, --Jim--
  11. Hi Slim, Thanks for the informative report and was pleased to hear that the old Cottonwood tree still stands... :icon1: Several years ago when "little Bill" was camping on Okie Jim's property, he gave Tom and I permission to drive thru and use the road that leads to upper Central Creek (Central canyon on the map) and prospect for gold in the creek, if we wanted too, since I had told him I had a 2 &1/2 dredge at home. He assured us that gold had been panned out of the creek in the past, which I thought was kind of neat.. Since Tom & I wanted to explore more of the Eugene's
  12. Hi Chris and All, Excellent idea about camping just outside the park, which gives folks that want hookups, Pizza's, :icon1: etc. a choice also.. That puts us fairly close to two of our new claims and gives easy access back to I-80 without having to drive 12 or so miles on dirt roads back to the Hwy,with lots of Alkali stretchs and potholes at that time of the year... Not fun!! Tom and I will have 2-3 potential claims to present at that time and hopefully there will be enough members to help in the staking, running to the appropiate courthouses to file etc.. These will be WSPA clai
  13. Hi Slim. , After crossing over the bridge at Mill City, just stay on the (potholed) asphalt road to Tungsten.. There is (maybe not anymore) :;): a caretakers house that you will drive past, then the road will kind of angle towards where you want to go, which is the Keystone Mine area... That part of the road is dirt/gravel.. Actually, the entire road isn't that bad because it gets maintained every once in a while.. I wouldn't try any short cuts because those roads aren't that good and lots of alkali stretches.. Trust me, I've tried them all and wish I hadn't every time.. :innocen
  14. Hi Chris and All, Thanks for the "heads up" on the new NV claim, I guess it will be posted in a few days.. I sent you an email yesterday.. Hope I got everything right.. Please let me know... There are some places near Ione where shallow gold (much) was found, but my research showed those areas claimed up.. Jeez, I hope one of those areas is where our new claim is... :icon1: Spent a lot of time in the Gabbs area.. Ol' Gus (oldtimer) showed me, as well as told me, many things about the area.. In 1999 he and his buddy (also old) went to an area NE of Gabbs for a day trip o
