saskatchewan newbie
« on: November 14, 2007, 07:05:29 PM »
 hi everyone,swdawg here.

 I'm totally new to this.Don't know how I suddenly got interested in'm from southwest saskatchewan and as far as I can tell we don't have any gold around here.Fossils yes.Indian artifacts yes.Gold no.

 But who knows.Maybe it's just waiting to be discovered.

 I did find a rock with what looked like gold in it 30 years ago west of Calgary, Ab.I was fishing in a creek and saw some black sand and found this neat rock.Probably fool's gold.I have no idea.Anyway found this rock recently in storage and I guess renewed my interest.Read a couple of magazines and here I am.

 Anyway, I'd like to find out about panning and prospecting.Any help is appreciated.Maybe I'll try it out next spring.Maybe I'll go to B.C. I have relatives there.If I have any luck maybe try Arizona some time.

 No illusions of fame and interested in fishing and camping and try to find some gold for fun.

 Cheers, swdawg
