Nice video Dan. Too bad you lost all your footage but this slow-to-arrive Winter has been great for late season prospecting.

I've spent many days this year working Fraser bedrock and I have yet to find any kind of rhyme or reason in it. I've concluded that there are probably no new noteworthy deposits happening and everything is just washing down from above. But the type of rock along the Fraser seems to break up pretty randomly and re-deposit gold in a very haphazard way so the best looking crevice might have nothing in it and some random test pan has a couple pickers in it.

My last trip to the fraser where I tested my backpack highbanker I ended up with more fine gold than I have ever seen in a day, nearly 1/4g of sub-200 mesh that I had to use mercury to separate it from the black sands
