I brought some water and panned a dozen or so sample pans with no results. I tested the drainages adjacent to the road. The claim was covered in snow, so it made things tough.
I had planned to haul buckets to somewhere with water and run through a sluice, but found nothing worthy. If conditions were better, I'd check out the other side of the claim.
Its beautiful country. Although we didn't find anything worth mentioning, it was still a good time visiting this claim.
