There is always an overwhelming feeling when finding gold of any size, but one like this doesn’t come along very often.
Since 1986, I have spent the summer months camped out on a river, looking for gold. The summer of 2000 was no exception.
Prospectors east of the Mississippi have their share of gold bearing property to explore and prospect upon. There’s plenty of undiscovered gold on the bottoms of the creeks and rivers running through the eastern gold belt.
The Gold Hill (Clifton) mining district is located 162 miles, by road, west of Salt Lake City. All but the last 12 miles of road is paved. The settlement of Gold Hill (pop. 10) lies at an elevation of 5,321 feet in desert mountains, the highest of which, Dutch Mountain, is 7,800 feet above sea level. Ponderosa pine grows at the highest elevations, with a zone of pinyons and junipers below that.

The past month was a good one for for George W. Bush. First, he was officially inaugurated for his second term in office and made a well-received speech advocating the American position on world peace. Then Iraq held an election that was extraordinarily successful in comparison to the woeful predictions that had been made.
