December Beeping & Dry Washing

Recommended Posts

With the threat of rain during the overnight hours , I hiked up to an area boulder Dash and I wanted to dry wash. I layed out 3 10 x 20 tarps in some spots that looked like potential areas to work.

Here`s a shot of one tarped off area.... :89:

This particular spot we had actually worked before, but in the wake of the monsoon flooding, there was renewed gold present. It was also a somewhat shallow area.

Heres that spot above after we worked it for a while. The ground was miserably wet , and took extreme patience to run it through the drywasher that was also giving us fits... :aw-shucks: Its hard to be motivated when the ground just isn`t cooperating, but once you see good color in one of the cleanups, it makes it easier to start shoveling again.

We only ran 47 bucket for the 2 days, but as said before, it was challenging ground. The buckets ran were all vacuum material.. We wound up with close to 7 grams total ..

You've worked that before and got that results this time. Well I think you should look for the source, as the looks of the nuggets it might be nearby. Good work guys.

WTG you two! Lot of work but you got some nice gold.

After looking at the area in the pics I was able to google where you two guys have been working :)

The secret is out!

Very nice gold guys! I'm putting together a new drywasher that I'm anxious to get out with. It's been a while since I drywashed.

Wow that's a lot of gold in that riffle from drywashing that spot. Now I understand why it's hard not to be out there even when conditions are not that great for drywashing.

I thought we only ran 27 buckets?? I'll sleep on it.. Like Adam said it was miserably wet and extremely difficult to drywash during this trip. I believe we only worked a total of 11 hours, the days are just so short this time a year..Not to mention the extreme cold. This trip was the first time I had to wear a full jacket all day while Drywashing.

Extreme cold....must have been just below 60F :)

That's about the point us desert rats shut down :)
