$70 worth of lead


Recommended Posts

The wife & I went to the Dale District yesterday to the Black Jack claim with Monster guppy. I was using my infinium with a 5x10DD coil. Twice I was very excited when I had to dig holes over a foot deep for solid targets. One was under a large rock so my blood was really starting to pump until I pulled to top of an old can off. The other was a difficult dig due to the removal

of small compacted stones. Same thing, another old can...... I found allot of lead bullet pieces, BB's and a few small pieces of metal from old cans. So $70 worth of lead for the cost of the trip.........

Still had a good time, it was a beautiful day out there walking around Gods creation! :-)

Some times you just wonder how those things go out there and got so deep.

Well, you had a good time and made some memories :)

GL to you next time.

We dry wash north of Barstow. Have you have any luck detecting? The gold there seems very fine.

I used to have a claim on the trinity outta douglas city covered in lead. I had to shut down the dredge hourly to remove all the illegal snagger rigs,lead weights utilized in salmon and steelhead fishing. Gave them away,2 X 60 acres because gold couldn't settle out as nuttn' but a stinkn' bottom carpeted in lead--NOT HEALTHY-John
