Comments Regarding our Gold Prospecting and Mining Summit in mid-May...
"What you did for us was very special...."
"Your patience with all of us is to be commended..."
"I learned a lot and hope to be back again next year...."
We have tentatively scheduled a date for next year’s show and we want you to know it’s not going to be on Easter weekend!
For the last two years we’ve held a hands-on prospectors training session in the Iowa Hill district of California’s Mother Lode country as a part of our Gold Prospecting and Mining Summit event. Because of this, I thought it might be good to take a look at the history, geology and opportunities that the Iowa Hill district still offers to the individual prospector.
A number of crevices were still waiting to be cleaned out. A lot of the gold remaining in the pit was very fine sized, but a few small nuggets were also recovered.
Brian...had cleared off some virgin, gold-bearing bedrock areas prior to our arrival, so everyone had ample opportunity to find and take home some gold.
