Challenging to get to, and never been a wash to give up much gold. I hunted this remote canyon today for a few hours, mostly attempting to find out where the gold is coming from. :89:

I know old prospectors who'd claim that those two mini specks were heard by a GBII while hiding under that chunk of scrap iron, and buried under 47" of black sand.  On a windy day.  While detecting under a power line.  Next to a cell tower at a rock concert.  The art of storytelling is dying in America.

Nice ones, Adam.  Looks like you got those tiny bits with a straw.  Some sweet prospecting work, overall!

Any ideas where the golds coming from Adam

No,  the gold seems to come to an end though. Hit all the tribs nearby, and couldnt find anything else.   A dry washer would have helped alot.

Wow, Adam, I somehow missed seeing this thread until just now.  Another great job of an in situ photo.  BTW, was that makeshift file found at or near to where the nuggets were found?
