Secret Spot Revealed

19 0
Step 1 of 2

To add to my initial 2017 posting and Lombardi’s 11/2018 2017 there was an individual attempting to mark numerous spots with tools and miscellaneous equipment on the opposite side of the river to prevent us from working it. Never said anything to me just kept putting stuff were I would test. My family of three ignored the nut and set up our sluice on the opposite side of the stream in the vicinity opposite of coordinate 10 in the claim guidebook.

I am revealing my SECRET information from that awesome visit...don’t plan to return as I now own my own claim. The creek has been extensively worked; HOWEVER, the bench area across from point #10 gave us approximately 1-11/2 grams of gold in one day of (hard) digging. Approximately 20+ feet up the bank from the steam (across from point 10) and beyond the sapling trees still held respectable gold. I dug and 1/2” classified with homemade classifier at the dig, and carried material to sluice at the creek.

Good luck, be polite, but don’t be bullied. May your pans be yellow.

Go over bridge into Downieville. Take a right onto Main Street and follow to the fork. Take the upper road sailors ravine and follow for 4.8 miles you will see the claim sign D and J1. Its a one car 4x4 with some wet spots in the road. It's absolutely beautiful but the bugs will drive you crazy. I went and camped for two nights and found very fine gold. You won't see it if you don't know what to look for. The claim is on the downie river. I was there aug 30 thru sept 1 2017. Bernadette Lombardi

In the new book of claims several more cordinence points were added. This was very helpful.
There is a sign written on a big piece of ply board that says gpaa claim ends here and it looks like the gpaa posted it. This is not posted by the gpaa. There are two guys the one has guy has posted a claim stake at cordinence #10 and at #12 another guy is trying to claim the other side of the river. The guy at number 12 can put his big toe in the water and mine but our claim is on the other side. I think these two guys posted that big sign. I don't want to be on a claim that's someone else's so I brought someone with me to help me find the claim. The number 12 guy was not happy that I was doing this and for two seasons I have had to ignore him when he goes off. I want to mark all of the points for every gpaa member. Good place to go. Pan sluice.

Followed directions , stayed on the road going up and on the left. At 3.4 saw white bucket near tree on right and a place to camp. Used Gold Monster 1000 to locate gold on bedrock and slate. Used hammer and large prybar to break rock 1 to 3 inch’s found 3 large flakes. I got sick so my son and I left. Never went past the GPAA END sign. Didn’t make sense. Had a nice time but was just sick I would go back! lots of gold prospectors . Drove my Subaru went over 4 Springs or washes, hardbottom. And no problem. But road is rough and the overhang will scratch your vehicle. Also road going up is scary!
