New Vein--New Gold


Uncle Ron

Recommended Posts

Yo All ... I've been prospecting a bit lately, looking for that "right" combination of mineralization in the LSD area ... Friday I found it (right next to a snoozing Joe NoShoulders) ... The ground was weathered iron schist with abundant quartz, pyrite and ironstone ... These two total 2.2 DWT and come right off a vein in the schist a couple of feet apart ... I covered the area pretty thoroughly after finding them ... I need to go back with a bit larger coil to see what I can scare up ... I was using the NF 14" Mono Fiberglass ... This is a new ridge top area and is well guarded by Joe ... No signs of any detectorist workings within a quarter mile but there was a good bit of sampling done by old timers ... Here's pix ... Cheers, Unc

Nice going Ron......

Glad you got some gold and had a photo op with Joe no shoulders! :)

I met his brother yesterday.

He was kind enough to let me know I was going to step on him! BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Wouldnt have wanted to hurt him you know.
