Suburbanators Travel Log - **UPDATED
« on: July 07, 2018, 10:30:25 AM »
Well the water dropped a bit so I ventured out and collected some material from behind two large rocks this week.
Not bad for one bucket.  Some of the gold was long and stringy,  looked like wire.

I dug out roughly 1 home depot bucket,  classified it down to about 2/3 of a bucket removing anything larger than 1/4" and then ran it through highbanker at home (I had some fine tuning to do anyhow to high banker) and then panned it out.

I let the highbanker run for quite a while after as well.

The third photo with the small amount of gold was just recovered from a 5L pail of material I grabbed from a bedrock area.  I was surprised to see the stringy stuff there,  figured it would be more likely to get trapped in sands/gravels than on rock.

There is a lot of Robe Gold in the Coq River especially down by the big pool. The guys on the Coq will know where I mean.

Looks like you found a good spot, nice pictures  <_miner_>

July 9th,  couldn't bring and gear with me as I didn't have time to check MTO for open ground.

Snapped some photos though of some awesome bedrock spots while up in Whistler/Pemby area! 

Was drooling.  I travel so much to Vancouver Island and Whistler I wish I stopped took some time and found some places to work some ground for a couple hours...

On the To-do list!

The photo's don't do the natural sluice cracks in the rock justice....and sorry..not sure why they turn themselves sideways.

July 11th Trip.  Video / Photos to come shortly Hopefully.

Water was very low,   did some collection from the main river behind some newly exposed rocks.   Water level reported at 1.85M which is down from 2.25M Last week.  Made a huge difference.  Normally where I am standing for photo is 2' of water.  First time I have been able to cross easily!

Trip Report July 11th - RESULTS

Sniping the rocks on the newly exposed main river bed -#FAIL  I got one spec in 2 pails.
I did shovel up another two buckets,  classified it on site and brought it home again for highbanker.
NO large chunkies but some good dust.

Yours,  so I owe you lunch. 
To be fair,  It was only three buckets.
