Well other then mining on my neighbours claims, mining on my claim for the season is done. I may take a snowmobile up there 1 or 2 times, but other then that I'm ready to submit another SOW. Even though I got more gold from other claims in last 2 weeks then mine all year, I still veiw this season as a success. I met alot of good folks, learned alot, & got a plan for the future of my claim, and heck I even found a few bucks in gold <-good_>
Also if any of you miners will be in the Cranbrook area, I invite you to Miners night at the legendary byng roadhouse on wed Nov 25. It's my mining partners bar & we are having a year end get together. I'll be bringing & setting up my bluebowl along with some cons I carefully prepped to run & am dying to see whats in it. We prob start around 630-7pm

Well as a Christmas treat I'll share something I just got, I dont want to say too much, but I will say it did not come from my claim, but it was in found in my area. It was found not very long ago, it weighs a hair over 2ozt & I made a trade with the claim owner so I could keep it. As far as I know it's the biggest piece found in decades in this area & I now own all of it.   <-yahoo_>
Keep looking for the big gold people, this is proof the oldtimers didn't get it all. [<-panning->]
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all.

Thanks, yup it was close enough I'm pretty sure my claim has one too if not one thats even bigger <-yes_> Crazy thing is I talked about finding a 2oz nugget in the spot it was found & an hour later it was found in that same spot <-shock_>

Thanks, I've been busy planning for this coming year, there is lots to do & the snow is starting to melt so hopefully only a few more months. Here is another video I made, this one is a summery of my first year mining on my claim. Hope you guys enjoy <-yes_>
