Gold Basin Hunt 4-30-11


Recommended Posts

Rob C and I headed for GB on a sunny but very windy Sat. Hit the ground early and headed for a blank spot on our personal strewnfield map. After several hours Rob got a solid signal and the excavation began. It appeared to be decent size after removing the top layer of dirt, and Rob was rewarded with a nice 146 gram stony. Attached is a photo with the top layer of dirt removed and then cleaned up later. Rob was on a roll and ended up scoring another 15 grammer. I got skunked this day, but hey if it was easy everyone would be out there.... 390cdd45.jpg92e46e80.jpg886be5e6.jpg

Sorry you skunked Terry! I don't feel so bad about that place when I hear I am not the only one that skunks.<_< I do that 95% of all my time spent there.

Congrats Rob on the finds! :thumbsupanim What was he using for a beeper?

Aloha,

Great looking specimen you found. Yep, it is getting harder to find quality size pieces BUT they are still out there for the persistent hunter.

Aloha and stay safe.
