Western Montana here and I've only been to the Radersburg claim. It's a "dry" claim so you either have to classify there and wash your dirty elsewhere or dry it further and dry wash it onsite. So far I've only found small gold there but I've heard of others finding more. I chock that up to my inexperience.

I Made It! Kevin is a Beautiful piece of property, However, I am discouraged about the amount of gold I found. Perhaps I was just digging in the wrong spot or just too tired from the hike. I may try it again someday but for now, not my favorite claim

At least you made it. Did you use nf 2349 that turns into nf152? How far did you have to hike? Any land marks to look for?

I live in Spokane. Looking to get out again soon. Trying to get Gazelle intense about paying off some debt so I need to find some color. I think I'm heading down to the claims in Clearwater County, ID. In September. Any info on those claims?

quite a drive from Sequim. 6hrs? Plenty of claims on the west side for you. I think there are a couple of chapters over there too. Happy hunting.

Time to start thinking about the Kevin claim again. I still have my notes on how to get there and will try around the mid of March.

I only do detecting but I am curious about the Kevin claim. Think I will research it more when I get back and see if it's possible to get up there yet.

Right now I am in Yuma visiting my parents and signed up with GPAA only to then find out that they have virtually no claims anywhere I am interested in. Nothing immediately around here and nothing through central Nevada. Kind of disappointing.
Figure I may as well make the best of it and check out the one claim they do have near me at home. Not sure yet but I think I may actually be able to take my atv out the backside of the lake and ride into that claim. lol
Won't do that but it might be interesting. I may take a drive up there as far as I can to at least familiarize myself with the area.

Might as well make the best of it.

Hey John, Its mid March and I was wondering if you tried getting to Kevin. Let me know if your going anytime soon and maybe I'll join you. Are you going to the gold show this weekend in CDA? I should be going Saturday. Take care

David I take it I missed a gold show. As for Kevin not yet. I am putting a simple carpet kit together and will finish it this weekend. Thinking weekend of 4 April to try to make a run to explore the area. I would like a copilot if your inclined to make a run that way. The weekend of 11 Apr I am going to Duisenburg for a week of prospecting. Is there a way to contact you.

509 863 3924. I have to work Saturday night. I could go Friday or very early Saturday morning but I need to be home by 3 to get some sleep. The weather isn't supposed to be great this weekend. I was considering driving to Libby Mt friday and seeing how the river is looking. Let me know what your thoughts are. You can text me or call.

Geez, I guess I am a little late responding, Sorry. How was duisenburg? I havent gone out very much this year so far. Ive been saving my pennies for an Alaska trip in July. Ill be hitting up abotu 5 different claims plus anything else I can dip a pan into. Hoping to bring some color home.

I recently signed up with that North Idaho group. Are you familiar with them? I did hit up one of there claims a couple of weeks ago. I made a steep hike that about killed me. It was beautiful but I found no gold at all. Not sure why. I'd like to get to some of their other claims and see if my luck changes.

Anyway, take care

Had a great time in Duisenburg. Doing that type of prospecting is hard but fun. Learned a lot and will do better next time and I found a little color. I still have not made it out to the Kevin claim yet but I think the water is down enough to try. I am off Thursdays through Sundays now so if you want to go and help me find the Kevin claim let me know. I have a 4x4 Dodge Dakota pick up we can take.
