Killing the skunk early


Recommended Posts

Wife and I was out on the claim on NYD for some nice relaxing prospecting. She was swinging her GB 2 working the main trail into the claim as we have never really worked it. She was happy for awhile with her boot tacks and other treasures, me, I got frustrated and drove back to the house to get my pan. Did 2 quick pans from a nice spot up on one bank and got this little flood gold roller.

When I say I drove back to the house it is just one mile from the claim. Nice to be close.

Did you leave this sun baker or was it miners of old? Very top of rock pile.


Good eye Jack! Wonder what's inside?

BMc, more interesting for me to keep as a door stop.

GB2 sniffed it out from below a branch of a small tree growing at the top of a small rock pile. I'm sure one of the old timers left it there.

This happened about 15 minutes after speaking to Wes's partner who came down to the claims. He said that Wes mentioned to check the piles so I did.

I've put the MD20 Falcon to it to see if there was more but didn't hit anything. I could also have it Xray'd by the local vet.
