Nelson BC - Panning this week
« on: July 08, 2019, 06:53:24 PM »
Anyone have a claim near Nelson BC, and would be willing to host my stepdad and I (he was a geologist during his career, and I am a business owner in Vancouver). 

Our last day here is Friday and it would be great to do some panning between now and then.

We are mellow and respectful.

Send me a private message and we can go from there.

The Gold Guy - no luck linking up with anyone from the Nelson area yet.

My stepdad (a geologist) and I are heading out tomorrow to some areas around Salmo.

Is there any placer gold up by Crawford Bay?

Hey Dan,

Not much around Crawford Bay. However, if you are in the Salmo area, the Salmo River, Sheep Creek, and Waldie Creek are all good prospects. Don't know how much of it is still claimed though.

Got some gold around Salmo, BC (south of Nelson) - thanks to the Gold Guy and Suave for the suggestions!

Nothing coarse, just lots of fines and some quality time on the creek.
