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.
Wayne and I waited til 11:00 to go out scratching today. It was too cold to even contemplate hitting the bedrock until the sun got to it. Wayne hits paydirt with his first bedrock crevice...beautiful gold!
