Late Summer Gold

This was my haul from an afternoon/evening session at a friend's claim that went well past dark with headlamps.

Are you finding gold with the garnets up near Emory? Garnets are a good indication that there is gold nearby but not always. I have however found that the larger the garnets, the better chance for gold.  The same could be said about larger hematite and magnetite (as seen in this photo).

Actually I gave up that cell on Emory,  was finding NO Gold but lots of garnets.  That area was known for Nickel and in fact a large Nickel mine was 3kms away.

Most gold near Emory is at the mouth,  didn't have luck further up the creek.

Nice pics.  I respect anybody that prospects with a head lamp.  I prefer to stop when the sun goes down.  ;-)

Heck, there are numerous times I have crawled out of the canyon (for which one of my claims exist) dawning a headlamp after dark. If gold donít care how much dirt is on top of it,,, I donít care. Sometimes there are longer days than others, especially when you are on the gold.  Typically when the back aches, thatís the  clock telling me itís time to head home. However when you are on a good pay streak, you do lose track of time. Got to love those rare occasions. Hereís another photo of quartz, garnets,  and gold.
