Beeping and drywashing


Recommended Posts

Did some detecting and drywashing today.  First thing I noticed was the excessive heat and humidity. My shirt was 100% wet enough to transfer down to my pants. It was terrible in the wash.  Detected over 20 small nugget for 1.3 grams.  Unfortunately the picture didn't work and nuggets were added to poke. Vacuumed about 50 ft of wash or 13 buckets of the good stuff. Finished the day by 2pm

Great job as always, BD..! :yesss: Bummer about the nuggie pix tho..:idunno:

Couple quick edification Qs 4 U:
You said "the good stuff.." Does that mean you shoveled / swept / blew overburden off the top first..?
If this is a wash you've worked in the past, how long did that replenishment take..?

Thanks from the peanut gallery,

The good stuff is vacuum material from bedrock. Yes I shoveled all the overburden and vacuumed 13 buckets . I have never worked this stretch before.  I'm about 100% sure the old timers did work it. Plenty of old evidence like hand stacked walls and oddly placed rocks.

you got 1.3 grams detecting.... how much with drywasher? a gram or 2?

nice looking gold

 

Probably 2 grams at least,  I just added it to the poke didn't bother to put on the scale.  Only the big stuff was weighed.
