4 day recon & some nugs....

Recommended Posts

Met up with boulderdash to hunt new, and some not so new ground. :brows: If the world was going to end, guess I`d rather be chasing nugs when it happens :nutty: Many miles were hiked with alot of focus on tributaries. Old handstacks, prospector camps, and other interesting things were found along the way ... :thumbsupanim At one point, Boulderdash hit six nuggets in one dropout. Amazing !!

Old camp area with a wind break, and some 3/8 screen:

Yea we had a blast. It is amazing to me all the washes and tribs that have never been detected. Like Adam said many miles hiking. We were able to cover lots of ground with a great system of hop scotch detecting and hitting obvious areas. We hit approx 18 New tribs and washes 7 of the washes had detectable gold. Most of those were 1 or 2 nug washes. Like Adam said I hit a nice drop out in a trash filled wash, first one was a .6 grammer in blowsand. Rechecking my hole screaming target then I see the glint of gold and the largest arrowhead nugget came out. Recheck the hole boom screaming target again for a .3 grammer. All in all those six pieces paid for my trip. We even found a few sunbakers from the recent storms. My total was 5.1 grams from mostly new ground.

The secret is a foam underlayment with two sleeping bags one inside the other. Slept in some 17 degree night at empty pockets patch did not get cold at all. Actually i get better sleep in the desert.
