Another day "down under." Here are a few underwater snap shots of some gold hiding in a small pocket and a quartz vein. What caught my eye to investigate such a location, it was the embedded quartz boulder. I have provided these quartz photos (above & below the water surface) and the gold tally to a fine day's work. The coin illustrates the gold & hematite size within this area.

I had the great pleasure of mining with Randy on his hi-grade placer deposit this summer.
You won't meet a harder working miner...if there's bedrock to be found, he'll find it.
Overburden? We don't need no stinkin overburden  <-good_>
I posted several entries on my blog with a lot of pictures of the subject matter of this original post.
Check it out here...Bedrock of Bust
Please drop me an email with comments on my blog <-yes_>

Thanks to the recent interest in this back-dated post, I was able to dig up those lost photos that were deleted. Though logging work has occupied my time as of late, I did find some time this past Sunday do a little panning. Here is a photo of the 6 hr. work day. Total was 3.2 grams which included a nice size quartz/gold nugget (largest gold piece shown in photo - upper left side). I plan to re-visit that same location this weekend and possibly take some photos to share with you all. Good luck prospecting in the mean while. Cheers - Randy

Thanks for the comments. I have numerous "underwater photos" from the past month's prospecting and will add to this post when time permits. As {cool^sign} as it is to capture these gold deposits on film, it is just simply breathe taking uncovering them in their natural state.  <-yahoo_> Keep an eye on this post surfacing with more additional pics and information. I guarantee it to be worth the visit.  <-good_>

I thought that the above quartz/gold nugget deserved a closer look. The last photo is a sample of the quartz/gold pieces I have gathered from this small claim. I'd have to say that nearly 10% of my regular gold take from this claim contains some piece of quartz attachment. If only I had the knowledge & experience to find the source as I do finding its stream counter parts. Perhaps when the placer gold runs out, I'll be more determined to work the higher banks.

The gold you're finding is absolutely amazing. And the picture's you are taking are beyond inspiring.

I very much so want to move to Idaho now LOL

Oh and if you need a hand looking for the sources, I'll come out and search  [!!DANCE!!]

Oh a serious note... thanks, I'm sure everyone appreciates you taking your time to play show & tell with us.
