Nice little creek

We got up there late in the day and creviced for about two hours. Nice area lots of quartz in and around the creek. I can see how in the summer there is no water but right now plenty of water and some nice little flakey gold. After about two hours we ended up with 7 small pices in the box. Can't complain about an afternoon out.

I didn't see much quartz, but it was loaded with what I believe is schist. I took test pans as I went and found nothing. I stopped testing until I came across some quartz seamed into the bedrock and decided to crevice around it to see if any gold leached out into a trap. I did find my first pieces of the day there.

I decided to see what was further up the creek and discovered the river really does have a lot of different faces; there are unique and puzzling places to take some test pans.

I decided to make my mission to go as far back as an old tributary, but before I got there I came across some large bedrock with pits in it so I swung my detector a bit and was surprised to get a really solid signal. I would have guessed that pit was checked 100 times but my first ever picker came out of there. (it's the biggest in the photo).


 

Fun times in June 2020

Went out to visit Just For Money on 06/28/2020. Stream is flowing but very slowly. Not enough to run my fluid bed sluice. I tried to make a couple choke points, but the water was very slow.

Started about 6:30AM and packed up at about 9:30. Like a previous poster mentioned, it is best to park at the large turnout and walk to the creek then walk upstream about 800ft. I plugged the boundaries into my GPS.

Creviced for about 3 hours, with a couple breaks so my son and I can joke around and throw rocks. He’s 19 but throwing rocks is fun at any age.

Found a couple flakes and couple specks of flour, but this is great for me.
