Picks & Pans: Prospecting at Mills Creek, Alaska
March 2000 by Steve HerschbachI particularly enjoyed this little expedition. It is always nice to get out and spend time with my father, Bud Herschbach. He has taken a liking to Mills Creek and was anxious to return and look for more nuggets.
We sent them a lot of information, including my presentation about the area and its potential. We were excited to learn a couple weeks later that the company was interested in the property.
We just completed a trip to another river, and yes, there was definite movement and redistribution of gravels, and other prospectors have seen this as well.
Q: In the November 2006 issue, you published an article “Bill to address RS 2477” regarding rights-of-way across public lands (HR 6298, introduced by Representative Steven Pearce of New Mexico). Will you please provide me with some information about how this panned out?
• From public representative to public nuisance
• Don’t call us; we’ll call you...
• A look at the numbers...
Much more information can be gained from that single source and gives you ideas on the gravels for dry washing or where the nuggets may lie for metal detecting
