Yo All...I got out a few times this past week, enjoying the incredible AZ weather...I've been doing some research and discovered a new (to me) old placer field ... It was worked pre-1900's and again in the depression era...Ol' Baboo & I started working one very narrow, cat claw choked gulch that had an old prospect up high on a steep ridge ... It produced the eclectic group of targets, including the nuggets which total a bit over one gram altogether...The 1942 S penny came from another nearby wash and was the only target in a half mile long wash....I'm not sure of the dateline on the mini-ball, but I think it's from the 1860- 1880 time period...Maybe some of you know about that...The donkey icon is from a tobacco bag and was common in the 1930's...Anyhow, here's my usual bunch of photos...Cheers, Unc

I miss Redding. I used to live on Churn Creek road. Is it all built up now or still woods? :confused0013:

Greetings, Uncle Ron.

You might not have stumbled across the Mother Lode quite yet (at least not that you are admitting to us) but I would have been tickled pink at discovering such nuggets and artifacts. As it is, I am green and several other colours with envy of you and your finds.

Cheers, lvlagnum.
