LMAO  Not worried about the camp fire   Was thinking more along the lines of one of us falling in the river and all the gold in our pockets Dragging us to Davy Jones's locker I can get a dive team in really quick to save the gold   LMAO

If we are ever so fortunate to have pockets that heavy then why would we not just walk the bottom to shore, no need to trouble a diver person except for maybe if those heavy pockets developed holes....
I had full intensions to test run the new trommel and sluice mods done over the winter until I looked out side this morning. The darn snow has not stopped all day. AND the forcast says that Wednesday [my first day back to work] will be the next decient day.....
Of well welcome to spring time in Alberta....

There's a foot of snow on the ground here in lethbridge.I think im going sledding today instead of panning.Bought parts for my car and of course it snows.No garage, but have some more sluice making material and a work shop in the basment.Found a alternative miners moss at the dollar store.Front entrance mat, will get some pic's later.Wish I had some gravel with gold in it ,to try this stuff out!!

Been out a few times.Mostly testing.Got a great system down pack for testing.Found aa spot.Now I have to sherpa pack in my spiral-pan and battery.I still have to make a trommel,all this hand-sieving is killler.If one pan= 13 flakes,176x10=one yard.1760 flakes x 5=8880 would that amount to any weight.I been collecting what I can,I might be able to melt it into a pin head  {-applause-}.I do have at least a pound of black sand and at least a pound of garnet's.Do not know what to do with them, but might make a cool hour glass.

sorry forgot to reply my finding's got really busy, although it was a long time ago i am back in gold fever mode  DEVIL&??  i only found 1 small flake but i was lacking strongly on knowledge and supplies and stayed close to the devon bridge, i have been out a few times more and i find out the more you go and the more you know about where gold sits, you get quite a bit more  :)    since the spring has started  i have enough money to make quite a few trips so i will be out there alot this summer, maybe even see some of you there   <-wave->

Tom Bryant wrote a book on finding gold in Alberta - it's called "The Modern Goldseekers Manual".  It is available at Bedrock Supply in Edmonton (9435-63 AVenue   780-434-2040)  The new printing includes a chapter on diamonds as well.  Good luck!

Hello All.  New user looking to get more info on the subject. I have been out a few times around edmonton and found black sand and small flakes. Lots of effort with little reward so far but extremely fun!  Looking to perhaps hook up with other prospectors in the area if you require a shoveler or equipment mover in exchange for some knowledge, laughs, and perhaps a beer or 2.  Cory.
