Interesting about the amount of snow.  Without it, there won't be much of a spring flood.  That is good news for early access and bad for replenishment of fine gold.  Happy prospecting...

Where I mine, replenishment takes multiple centuries, a little bit at a time. 

Of course "things" are different wherever you go, but the replenishment process usually is only a little for each major weather event.  Now, those pesky 100 year floods are, I guess, the exception and that is where larger Gold really does move.
