Lookin good for sure!Watching others is inspiring.

Your right about that, that's part of a reason I made these vids, seeing is believing! Another reason those pans full of dirthogg gold you got is nice to look at and dream of.

Haha, if that was a big nugget buck, I wouldn't be on here posting.

I'll be heading to the mine today, had a fun day dealing with a flat tire on bobcat after it lost its bead/seal. I also made a small clean up sluice(8"x48") it seems to work good. Just remember....Lest we never forget, home of the free, because of the brave!

Oh I been trying to get the gold, Ol man winter is knocking so I'm trying to get a good last effort in. I been doing ok, here is a few pics from last clean out. Also I saw my first piece of gold sitting in the ground while I was at nip & tuck mine the other day. I was digging with a shovel(full size ) and saw the golden glow, so I bent down and grabbed it, it was just sitting in the dirt looking all clean & golden. I never seen a nugget sitting in the earth waiting for the first human to touch it, I've only found them in my sluice, after I pan  or do a clean out. Steve was nice enough to let me keep it :)

I pulled my machine out of the mine today as we got another inch of snow, for rest of year I'll be paying my hand mining dues, I hope to still collect a bit more gold before Christmas/year end.

I got the lil bit of gold dried I got from the lower claim I was working last month, not a lot, but considering this is first hole/year for that new mine & we only washed a few dozen yards, I'd say it is very promising. I wish the pay was this shallow at my other claims.

Great video! Thanks for putting it up!

That plant is awesome. Looking forward to seeing what it can do!

I just finished my video of Double D boulder mining, I'm still busy collecting gold on my own adventures, but here is how the Double D part  went.

Howdy all,  thought I'd let you all know I'm still on this side of the dirt/hole. I been mining this winter every chance I get. Been real busy doing snow removal, but have made it out a few times since the -30c temps left. I'll post more pics another day, but here is a few from last few trips out digging, along with some of the gold we found.
