Hey MJ 90.The old boy could be telling the truth.You have found gold good sign.Probably placer gold .if so concentrate on gold bearing ground Do not kill yourself chasing bed rock.Sounds like you are working glacial material where gold may never got to bedrock.Look at all the mines in Alaska and Yukon and northern B.C.The best gold is coming from the gravel deposits left behind from the glaciers and rivers.Not many mines in that country even getting close to bedrock.Too far down.Luck Mcbain.
I started out with nothing Istill have most of it.

If you're interested in the old Stanburne site, pm me.  I happen to hold the claim there currently.  I de-watered a trench there today, in fact.  I'd be interested in hearing what you know about it, and I might be looking for a partner or two.

Cheers

Hey MJ...Sounds like SouthShoreGold has a proposition for you. Might be good to chase that up with him.

Yes, I know the fulla who you speak of, since 1993 (off and on). Some day I will send you a personal message
and fill you in on the details about that. This forum is prob not the best 'public' place to discuss this type of thing.

yes you are right. I'd love to hear more. yes I have been talking to soulthshoreguy. sounds good to me to. I do not mind giving a hand to anyone in need. if I can. I need to finish up at my claim before I can go help others. way to much water at my spot now. I need a water pump. need a new plan for spring. I'm going to get an excavation permit and dig a big test pit. also looking into another area to claim. I'm going to get some wood carvings done to rase the money. (I am a award winning wood carver)

MJ, all I can say is AWESOME WORK! on the carving!!! AMAZING!
You don't need to find much gold as you can make MORE selling these carvings. It must take you months to do this type of stuff?

 I see you have lot's of heavies where it should be around the rock, however if you aren't finding at least some fine gold in it. You have no reason to believe lower levels of the flow had gold en trained.  At a poker table, unless the surrounding claims had good pay I wouldn't let you bet what might be found against my poke.


 "Quote: I have been searching for about 5 years. have found some nice gold up there, farther inland". I think you found your answer lot's of black sand. iron, and little gold... Could your gold have already have settled out of the outflow?  Dude you need to be up there, looking for bedrock crevasses that could have trapped bigger gold.  Old bedrock cracks are magic... natures own sluice box. 
Sometimes you don't get what you want, you get what you need. You might go looking for a living, and come back learning how to live.
