The Hunt for Remote Canyon Gold
November 2014 by Don RobinsonA large, 8-pennyweight piece popped out of a very small crevice where the water had been extremely swift in the winter, leaving no visible gravel.
The anticipation of finding out if the system of snatch blocks, shackles, chokers, anchor points, and the strap binding the massive slab of rock in the bottom of the river would even budge an inch was weighing on me.
...we will continue our examination of the rich streams and mining districts, and then take a look at some of the big nuggets that have been found here.
Most of us know making a profit as a small-scale miner is difficult; however, sometimes we combine luck with a little skill and bring home a few ounces of the yellow stuff.
This was two days of gold panning, with just over 250 gold panners trying to win a medal to show they were one of the best of the best.
Oscar Espinoza considers himself an amateur gold prospector, but the gold nugget he recently found puts many seasoned prospectors to shame.
Placers that are directly associated with lode deposits are sometimes overlooked and may have good potential for those who are willing to search for them.
Please note that new mining claims filed on or after September 1, 2019, will be subject to the new fee schedule.
