thanks gold01ca, I had another productive weekend washing, but I cant wait to set up the wash plant on our upper claim, sofar we just been using the digger to get paydirt and run in by hand through a highbanker, so we only ever wash a few yards  each visit, but we are on the gold. No bear sightings yet this year, but I have seen almost everything else. Some time I'll post pics lol but not now, now is the annual rotary auction, I'll hopfully get around to post pics sometime soon :)

I'll try :) I been out a few more times, got the wash plant set up, been getting more gold, really I'm thinking maybe I should save pics for end video lol, I'll post some sometime. Now is busy time for work so I don't get out as much as I'd like (want every day ) but I'm about to get the second mine going & within a few weeks get the third claim going as that one still has enough snow I cant even get to I yet, but there is plenty of ground to dig in down below. I getting a nice lil pile of gold already this year, It might be better then last even ;)

all right, I guess I've waited long enough to post a few pics, really I got tons of pics from this season already as I've dug in a few places and we set up a new mine site. anyway here is the beginning of making our new site & a pic of highbanker setup, but now we proved area to be worth mining on bigger scale we got our new washplant set up. Also just a taste of some of the gold we been finding. I'll post more sometime but I'll keep all updated on the goings on up here :)

I did get out yesterday & did some hand digging/sluicing, but I'll head over tomorrow to run our plant for the weekend, my partner was out there all day today running and stocking some pay for me. It should be another golden weekend.

Oh my I've been busy, just figured I'd let all know I'm still plugging away & working a handful of  claims, been finding some gold, I got lots of pics but no time to post lately, looks like we are moving the plant up the mountain tomorrow/sat. I'll try to post pics sometime, happy digging all!
