lundin claim
« on: May 06, 2008, 02:02:47 PM »
dose anyone know anything about a claim north west of Rocky Mtn house AB it was mined from late fifties to the late sixties by a man last name lundin. I have found his old home made sluice boxes ( they are very large, 6 foot culvert cut in two). They are in bad shape but you can see there are several sections with cement that must have been use for riffles. I am told by a few old timers that he made a very good living minning gold there. I went over the area with my metal detector but did not find anything of any inportance mind you my metal detector is not the best of quality. I have panned up there a few time and have looked for his tailings piles but have had minimal sucess. I have found good color a ways up steam though. any info on this claim would be appriciated.

I read somewhere of a gold rush near jasper some time ago.Other than that I would be doing some test panning of any old glory holes or even do a real good job going through his tailings.It might not have been gold.Maybe tungsten during the war or some other heavy metal?just a thought.
