today's hunt on the bikes

Recommended Posts

Tom and I hit some new to us stuff on the lsd with the motorcycles. We found a 4.06 grammer and lots of trash. We also found some sulfur? What ever it is it burns very good and smells bad. Here are some pictures.

Justin:
Man it was a blast out there today!
After a 30 yr break from dirt bikes I forgot how much fun it was :)

My body is telling me otherwise right now though :nutty:
Great times :yesss:

That was awesome that you found that nug and gave me a shot at finding some too.

I just added to my bullet/tin collection.

I burnt one of my pieces tonight and its cool.

Turns into a copper colored blob and burns with a blue flame.

Smells like poop though :4chsmu1:

Good job guys, I think I've been to that sulfer mine that you speak of, north of lake Plesant and south of Flagstaff. I'm glad you guys had a great day and congrats on gold and pungent finds.

It's probably sulfer but I have a chunk of similar looking rock that my dad found in the Arizona desert back in the early 1960's. It's yellow cake uranium! Makes a Geiger counter scream. This was back when the government was buying uranium.

I have a Coffee can of BLACK Urbanite here. Low level but it will make a Florescent lite tube spark once in a while.

There's a number of patches in the LSD area that give a strong sulfur or sulfide smell ... Some of the good gold areas in the Klamath Mountains have the same feature... Sulfur is a good indicator! ... Cheers, Unc

Noticed that too Unc...some of the areas i've drywashed smell a little funky when you get down to the good red layer.
