Green Valley Reconnaissance
January 2013 by Don RobinsonDuring this trip we found enough gold to make us want to come back, even with the punishment of a very long, tough hike.
The gold in this area can get quite large. Most of the pieces are about half a pennyweight on average.
Working underwater certainly has its challenges, but since I wanted to learn how to blast underwater, I just needed to dive in headfirst and take charge of the operation.
Last month, one of our readers requested an article regarding the possible use of Google Earth for prospecting research. It was a good idea, so here it is.
And what do I think is the easy way? It’s what you can learn from the old timers that walked that ground many years ago.

Within the first 3 hours he and I had found pocket after pocket of gold and couldn't wait to tell Levi of our treasure.
