This is originally a load claim with coarse gold being held in the green slate and lode gold and copper in angled veins. However, there are pockets of placer gold deposited on top of the highest points of the claim when the river used to run 50'-70' higher than the current level. These deposits are pocketed with some very rich deposits. The river only has gold at the bedrock because when the river rises, it is often raging 20-30' deep. There are at least two waterfalls buried by car sized boulders. WARNING!!!!! This area does have gold that is encased in Sodium Arsenic!!!!! This black rock in found occasionally inside the green slate and attached to quartz. It is dangerous to crush and deadly to smelt. Please consult a Geologist if you have any doubt.
