Hello - New Here
« on: September 26, 2018, 04:08:37 PM »
Hello everyone,

 I am new here, just getting into prospecting.  I have had some luck  in the past two years  panning on some of my adventures and I am hoping to get a bit more serious in the future.

Looking to have some fun camping,  exploring, prospecting etc with the kids.

I just picked up a coquihala claim from  knucklebuster this week so I will be heading up there  a few times to check it out.

Thanks McBain,

I was up yesterday to take a quick look around.

I cleaned up a bunch of garbage from the site, took a short look around and did  small amount of digging.

 Did a couple pans, no color yet but I am very green with where to look.

I have had some luck and I mean LUCK in the past but this is all new to me.

I found a nice  3"x3" piece of quartz with some visible gold 2 years ago and this recent summer I was able to find a bit of gold including a nice little nugget.

I do not have any equipment yet but I think a Highbanker or a small trommel is in my future.

I look forward to learning more about my claim,  identifying the boundaries on the ground and doing some digging.

I hope to be able to stop in to see you sometime to say hello and check out your setup.  From reading on here is seems you are a real standup guy.

I do not have much to offer in terms of experience to the site but I am eager and hope to share some fun times with my wife and two boys.
