I found this 1 Oz.nugget at Rye Patch NV.on 9-11 I thought it was my lucky day, but It would MARK the end of my days of chasing the golden Rainbow & bring great sadness to me & the USA.

Am thankful for the years of good gold & great friends I found at RP.

Good Luck & Good Gold. Chuck

Nice, looks like sec 31.

I'll never forget 9/11, where I was, what I was doing or how I felt.

Nice nugget, So why aren't you hunting any more ?

Jim, had some hart problems there at RP, Long drive home, Dallas,TX. Old age 83, Grace refuse to go with me to dig & cook, I didn't thing that would be problem but gave it a go at the Trigo MT. Last sept. Fell about a mile from ATV. & 20 from camp, at first I thought I would just lay there & dye & get it over with, after a short uncomfortable time I decided that was not a good choice, If I hadn't had a short handle hoe for digging I think I would still be there. I think I could find another one or two but you get the drift, Chuck

John, could that be clear creek,CO? I caught the gold fever in the Arkansan RV.there at Grant,every pan had specks of gold that I spent hours picking out of the pan with a tooth pick, This Texas boy who had never seen raw gold came down with a bad case or fever that I have spent years trying to cure, Have really enjoyed the search but is terrible when the search is over.
