Geology and Earth Science / Re: Quartz sericite clay bed
« Last post by Shield-Geo on Today at 09:51:47 AM »
The valley may have been a lake at one point in its history. Could have been an ice dam or glacial lake. Is there coarse sediment under the clay layer? Clay is pretty impermeable, could keep some gold rich sediment underneath of it really easily. If you can take some soil samples of that stuff.

yale looks pretty cold today
did you find more gold 20 years ago?

I dug a couple 2 ft holes...nothing.   The only gold I found was tiny stuff on top 6 inches. I guess bottom stuff was mined out a hundred years earlier.  Oh well it got me out of the room {cool^sign}

Ya I guess I answered my own question. ..why not promote yale?  Not enough gold?
 I guess we need a place where they dig down to bedrock under the water. ..

Chat & Everything Else / Re: Lots of spring runoff ?

Gold One it would be interesting to see where these water levels peak as the snow melts, as McBain mentioned with all those forest fires these is nothing to hold back the run off.

Bad for the environment but there will be much new gold finding its way into the river systems, I believe its called flood gold.

Prospectors better gear up for the 2018 Fall season.

The Data from the water stations is in real time so you can plan your trip accordingly. If the water levels are covering your favorite sand bar you can spend the day in another Bar where its warm and cozy. Maybe find one with peelers.

Crewcut    I agree ' MANY SQUEAKY HINGES get GREASED but one squeaky hinge can get over looked.

If we all sit back and go with the flow and follow the Regs as some have suggested , some day we will say:Why didn't we do something about this.
It may not help us right now but it may help our future generation of young miners.

Just my thoughts and I don't want this to turn into a political warfare on this site,  If you want to get involved visit the "BCPPA " BC Protesting Prospectors Association"

I think enough has been said on this topic I just wanted you to know someone else out there cares and is taking some steps forward> will they get anywhere? Don't know unless we try.

Thank you for all your comments.

Yale does not rely on miners for their economy, Tourists passing through stop to shop at the flea market or visit the Museum and maybe grab some munchies at the Trading Post.

People that go panning at the Reserve are usually day trippers and have equipment with them.

South of Yale at the gas bars you can get a good home cooked meal.

Gold One not many people have to stay very long and spend the amount of money you spent per month, their visits are usually short while passing through.  The new cam is a bonus because I always check to see how the conditions are before wasting my time.

There is still plenty of fine gold there but you don't have to dig to China, I don't go any deeper than what a 5 gal pail will hold. Sometimes you hit it lucky and get some larger flakes but on the whole it is usually very fine stuff.

The only thing I would like to see the Township do is put a Porta-Potty on these Reserves. !!!

Maybe we will see you there in the good weather.

" I had placed a small magnet on the side of my stand to hold the 7/16 wrench I use for adjusting the legs.Never even dawned on me that it would affect the box."      <-thinking->

The stand's  frame carried the magnetism, the individual Magnetite particles (probably not Hematite) were stopped due to that weak magnetism carried by the under box supports and everything just went bad from there.
