My Great Nevada Adventure
July 2015 by Fred Mason
On our fourth trip, we finally reached the top edge of the old hydraulic pit, and it was monstrous.
He no sooner had turned around and started moving when I hollered again that I had another nice one.
I had never run an impact mill before, but anything involving rocks, water and a big electric motor sounded great.
The research I did for “Gold in the Slate Creek Basin” (September 2011 issue) found me chasing a channel out of the LaPorte territory headed towards the old mining town of Brandy City, California.
Most prospectors understand placer mining a lot better than hard rock mining and don’t realize the amount of work that goes into processing different types of hard rock ore.

The plea from State Police Chief Pete Kassetas follows what authorities believe is the latest death related to the effort to uncover Forrest Fenn’s treasure.
