  1. I'm OK and it's good to save all of the gold you achieve over time, until you really need it.
  2. The only way short of DNA to tell the difference between a Western and a Mohave is certainly not looking at its tail or color. I once made a living catching them... Two large scales connecting its eyes are a Mohave, so many small scales you are unable able to count and its a Western species of which there are numerous. Really doesn't matter unless bitten which I have been 3 times.
  3. It's Lead most likely from my experience, certainly not native silver. Still a cool unique find. Edit... Galena is a better description. While dredging we find about 75% of chunky heavies Galena. Some bullet frag's and mostly natural.
  4. I believe the feed rate should be quicker and the jig should hold more heavies before being loaded up. An improved way to feed the jig is needed though.
  5. Congrat's on the patent and I hope you prosper with it. I also know the PINTA of the patent process and have 4. Made decent money on one of them. That being said, looking at your drawings that are well done to describe the item I instantly saw a way to vastly improve its efficiency with no additional parts or power needs. I could see this a likely large improvement over the current drywasher.
  6. I dredged up an 18" iron skillet about 15 years ago, it was under about 5 feet of overburden and just above bedrock in the hard pack layer. Used it at camp for several years then brought it home and the wife "cleaned" it. Surface rusted the poor old thing badly. After explaining cast iron to her and finally getting it again seasoned its still our favorite cooking pan. The claim goes back to early WWII when it was first inhabited so pretty sure thats when it was left to near to the creek. No markings on it anywhere to determine its maker etc.
  7. I pass one to two stones every year. Mine are the more rare iron stones and the last one I passed in october was 8mm. That one took a few weeks of on and off symptoms. Have done this for 34 years now.
  8. I needed an attitude adjustment so south I went for two days checking the claims out solo (yeah, I know). Found a couple dinks and two nice spots for drywashing with decent color in every dry pan. No problems while there and slept one night by the border. Not for the squeamish but doable with the right attitude.
  9. Yeah I know about them and its ok. Thanks though.
