Spent Saturday 6/25 at a GPAA claim called Nancy's Gold on the North Fork of the Middle Fork of the American. Had a wonderful day and got a nice bit of gold. Added 2 more of the largest flakes I've picked up yet to my collection. Picked up a lot of lead and iron that is still in my heavy cons to play with during the week.
Spent the weekend on the East Branch Feather River on a Cariboo Gold Mining Assoc. claim with Chuck, Tara and the kids and brought home a little shiny stuff. No making fun of my one-handed video making skills.
I discovered to my joy that 95% of the heavies I collected that stayed between the #4 and #8 screens are metallic in nature and can be picked up with a magnet. And not just a light magnetism either. They literally jump up. The non-metallic sands are a beautiful sight too, like millions of little jewels. Not my normal type of heavy cons I get near home.
