Nancy's Gold July 2011 Add Video

Was the last 2 days of my vacation. Prospected all day Thurs. and part of the morning on Friday before heading back to civilization. I've only chicken scratched the surface and know Nancy's has some nice nuggets in deep pockets just waiting to be found.

Sorry for the late reply, Don. Been busy. Yes, a PT can make it there easy. Paved road right to the claim. Dry camping on both ends of the Oxbow Res., only amenity is restrooms, but me and a few others have been making due with the primitive sites on or near the claim. Spent a week with my bros RV right on the pull out and never was bothered. Rick

maybe our august outing?can we get there with regular cars?
You can drive right to the claim and park in one of three pullouts near the bridge. The only downside is the cliff trails down to the river are quite steep. Even the eisiest trail at the end of the pullout after the bridge can be a challenge. I'd recommend that a person only takes what he can carry down and up in one trip . . . or bring a young strong back with good legs.

Hey Rick, I'm set to go up there tomorrow (Wednesday), and would really like to know how high / fast the water is. Is it slow enough to where someone could wade or swim across?
The spot I ran my sluice in this video a month ago is now high and dry. Even the bedrock pools have dried up. The water is pretty shallow except for a few pinch points where it might run fast and deep. I crossed the waterfall this weekend to pull an old wooden sluice off the bank on the other side under the trees with all the driftwood.

It shows just pan and sluice in the book. I renamed my mini-DC Highbanker to BillyGoat since it's only 9.2 pounds and I can flume it from a waterfall or spill over of the larger rocks and higher pools. I'm taking it down next visit for a test run. Lots of overburden so powersluice is almost a must.

I really enjoyed the video, Vermy. It was slim pickens for me last time I was there. Looks like a powersluice might make things easier. Do you happen to know if thats allowed?
