Revisited July 2019, broke apart approximately three foot tall section of washed off bank material on the road side of the claim and (again) found EXCELLENT large flake and smaller gold throughout the material, especially trapped within the heavy matted roots.
Be careful not to blow out the flaky gold from your sluice at this location. Classified to 1/2 inch then ran through my homemade electric recirculating sluice.
Also recommend the area at the bottom of the hill and to the right of the road cut from the river up into the high water bench...especially digging under the thorn brush (gloves!)...👍. Avoid the fine sand and dig the gravel with sand👍👍.
Easy access, beautiful location. Watch the little ones beside this river, strong current.
