It's been many years since I last got dirty panning, but you never lose the fever. I've panned and sluiced all along the Moke river, from Tiger creek to Pine Grove. I almost opened a claim near the river, sandwiched between two patented mines. I seached more than 20 square miles for every claim maker, and corner post backin the '80's. I'm now kicking myself for not doing the paperwork to get it going. Now that I'm back to work after a six month "UNPAID" vacation, I'll have three day weekends to get out and play.
I'm looking forward to meeting some of you in the coming months.
