    Back from Mexico!

    What a nice vacation Chris. It’s good to hear you felt comfortable taking your family to the interior of Mexico. Did you arrange the trip through an agency or research and plan yourself? Mike

    Dry-Washing for Gold!

    Really nice to see some drywash gold Chris. Could you ask your friends to tell us a little more about their dry washing equipment. I want to try dry mining this summer. I’ve never done this myself. Thanks Chris and Daine, Mike

  14. When I was still land surveying some years ago, I seem to recall there was a separate fee charged on the recording of property (land parcels) here in California, which was supposed to be use for the restoration of property (land) corners. I think the monies were to be used by the county surveyor/grandfathered engineer or to hire a private professional surveyor to restore property corners destroyed by government actions like, road building and maintenance, other construction. I believe this also included government land corners which may help the county or state in their administration of certain land issues. Lipca? Mike
  15. Did anyone hear if there has been a winner. I had a pretty good story and would like to hear others. Mike

    Early mining camp hunt

    That's just a neat find Chris. Does a person clean up a coin like this? Mike
  20. I came across a brand new Gold Bug 2 at a garage sale today. I have the guys name number if anyone is interested. He is asking $500.00 for it. Located here is Crescent City, Ca. Mike

    Detecting an Old Property

    Nice coin. A while back I was considering buying one of the gold centennial Mercury dimes, but they're pretty proud of them. Truly a thing of beauty though. Mike

    Think its a button?

    Cool find Chris. It looks kind of like a drop of molten lead. Perhaps melted lead dropped onto a surface which transferred a little of the surface pattern onto the "bottom" of the button. The "top" has a kind of expanding wave like circular character. It'd be neat to try to replicate. Mike
