Spent about 10 hours over three days scouring the north and northwest portion of this claim. Found no gold, but lots of bullet fragments! Nice country, looks nice for gold, but we had no luck. Maybe should have concentrated on the depressions. Saw a 4x4 pickup take the narrow road to the NW corner, but I wouldn’t take my truck through there! Too many sidewall slicers! We accessed the claim with a Polaris SxS which is the best way to access this back country. Hope to come back next spring and give it another go.


 

There's gold here if you look for it.

Went out to the claim with the MD for about an hour. Found lots of old metal which I threw in the back of the truck and took with me so the next guy didn't have to deal with it and to clean up the claim. I did find a little picker in my bucket of concentrates from where I dug the spots that the MD picked up since I only had so much time on the claim.

Finally I had a chance to MD Vulture Bait on Feb. 11th, started on the SE of the claim, really good looking ground, I only seen a few MD holes, maybe from a PI MD the holes were about 6 to 8" deep (after I checked them I filled them back in) and no dry washer signs in the SE area. I MD about 8 hours found about 200 small trash items so the area didn't seem to be worked very hard, I didn't find any gold here (yet). I was planning to start MD the northern section of the claim but then the rains moved in so now I'll have to wait until November.


 

Listen carefully for the small signals

My most successful prospecting on this claim both detecting and drywashing has been working the number of depressions located above the main wash channel and those that have small drainage's running through the depressions and those with water channels coming down the side walls of the depressions. My preferred areas for prospecting are in the NW section of the claim from the center point. These are easily seen using a topo map or programs like Google Earth or Google Maps in satellite view.
There are a lot of nuggets still to be found on these claims. Over the years I have taken quite a few with my biggest being 1/8 of an ounce.
I have done a great deal of detecting on this claim and have had good luck in the past. I have not found large nuggets over the 1/8 of an ounce piece. Generally the nuggets that I have found are in the 10 to 30 grain range. For the most part they are small chunky gold nuggets that have not traveled far in the northern section of the claim to smoother more traveled in the southern part of the claim.
Patience is the key for being successful with a detector, that and very slow swing speeds. Pick a small area and stick with it. covering more ground on this claim is a sure-fire way to walk over nice detectable dinks.
