Step 1 of 3

At the present time there are 2 lodes on the Crystal Claim. The 1st one found is the Jo Jo Lode. It starts up the ravine and runs North toward Hesperia. The Shadow Lode runs next to the parking area toward Hesperia too. The best place to mine is off the Shadow lode (see picture of gold). They don't combine but cross in the ravine above. There is ancient river rock 5' below grade in this ravine. Gold is flakes, specks and fines in the top ravine. Rhino


 

O T 1 has the Gato Lode above the gold traps.

O T 1 has 4 gold traps. Some old timer found gold on the claim and built these traps across the wash to trap the gold. The lode is shown on the map.


 

O T 2 has the Ivy Lode going into the claim.

The Ivy Lode begins in the claim next door and enters the O T 1&2 claims right in the middle. This hasn't been worked because of poor vehicle access. I think the lode runs thru the O T 2 claim.


 

Billy Gruff Claim has a small lode called Casey

We walked to Bully Gruff from the Crystal Claim and the 1st gully had some gold in it. The gold was washing down from the hill above. On top of the hill is a small lode running 20'. I didn't see any signs of anyone digging. I will go back and sample some dirt.

I am visiting for three weeks and decided I would give this site a shot. I must preface this with my background.
I have never prospected for anything. I bought the membership upon a suggestion from a friend who lives in Barstow, CA and has found quite a bit of gold in this area. Since COVID hit, he is not available to teach me and I thought it wouldn't hurt to just go out and practice using my pan.
I took 5 gallons of water, my pan and a small pick hammer and headed to this site.
I followed the directions from others who had been there and made it safely. Upon pulling into the claim, I could see where others had worked so I chipped away some of those areas into a five gallon bucket and started working small bits at a time.
I did not find much, but considering I didn't know what I was doing, only used a pan to go through a small amount of a previously used site, and I only had five gallons of water, and I only spent about three hours out there, I think I did quite well for my first shot!
