    Went to Georgia to do a little highbanking, got snowed in for several days, was unable to do any highbanking. Got back home to Ohio and had that itch I just had to scratch, so I went to the Little Miami. About 3 hours of running, ended up with some nice gold and a big fossil. Will be grateful to anyone who can help identify the fossil.

    How was the flow and was there a lot of ice to deal with? Nice amount of gold. Sure is an odd looking fossil

    hi Thomas no ice i went the last 45 degrees day we had which seems like forever ago lol. i had a little pump trouble low pressure but finally got it fixed toward the end of the day. Not bad amount for the little miami river and it was up some too. Not sure about the fossil but it is the biggest one i have ever found so far.

    Nice color there.

    Fossil might possibily be a tooth of some sort.  Might send a pic or two to a local college or university for identification.

    Hello Bill! My name is Eddie! I'm from Ohio also. I've been making a few trips to Little Miami. I'm pretty new with prospecting. I've been a Member for a little over a month now. What area have you been to? I've been going over by the Water Fall! I haven't found anything yet, but I could be going about it all wrong. Do you still go? If you wouldn't mind me going along with you sometime, I would really appreciate some guidance, if you wouldn't mind! Have a good day!
