Hey Bill Southern and the rest of you gents roasting in the AZ heat

Recommended Posts

Hey Bill Southern and the rest of you gents roasting in the AZ heat - I have a question for you:

Is it normal for you folks to have snow drifts among the trees in your prospecting areas in mid-July? Well, when they have a big snow year in the Sierra, its not that strange. This was just a little tiny drift, but there were ones a lot larger, including one blocking one of the roads I wanted to go down. This little guy was just the only one I photographed. Wait a minute - I forgot, you guys dont have trees, let alone snow among the trees. :D

Sorry you didn't make it up this way Bill, we could have had a snowball fight in July. 

While I was up there, I didn't just make summertime snowmen. I filmed a few videos for my youtube channel and detected 10 nuggets for a total of 2.5 grams of the good stuff. I was using the SDC 2300, and working around some old spots and doing a bit of digging. Because I am digging into an old patch location, I am also dry washing the dirt I dig, and I have about 2 grams of additional fine gold in the DW concentrates as well. The high temps for the couple days I was over there were around 80 - very comfortable.

We had snow showers in late June years ago near Mill City, Nevada. Being from the midwest, that was one of the strangest things I ever saw.

Nice SDC work Chris!!  I’m starting to see more fires pop so we could just be having a delayed summer.  Often Northern and So. Cal take turns for extreme fires.  Only time will tell.  I’d like to score some wildfire nuggets.

Way to go Chris! Nice looking gold!

Looks like familiar country. Let's get together for a hunt if you're up there the rest if the summer? I haven't been out in a long, long time. Actually, have only been up that way once this year! I'd love to see you and catch up on things.

You are killing me Chris, I can not take a summer vacation due to my Assistant Manager at work having a recent stroke... Perhaps next year.

Matt -send me an email, as I cant send you a message through this board.  Let's figure out a time.
