Hey all you Georgia Gold Adventurers...

FYI.

---------------

Allatoona Gold Panners –
1. What - Gold Panning Outing.
When - Saturday, June 4, 10:00 am. If inclement weather, outing is canceled. We usually stay 3-5 hours, but you can depart anytime.
Meet – Steve Girdley at the picnic table at the Trail Head of the Blankets Creek Mountain Bike Trail. We'll introduce ourselves and cover some basics then walk to the creek.
What Creek - Blankets Creek. Park in the new Bike Parking lot on Sixes Road, Canton next to the River Church, 2335 Sixes Rd, Canton, GA. See http://sorbawoodstock.org for the creek and trail map.
Wear - Wear long pants (may be briars, ticks, chiggers & poison ivy) & tall rubber boots (get at Walmart, ACE Hardware) or waders (Dicks).
Bring - Pan, classifier, sucker bottle,(get at Little River Marina Store on Bells Ferry Road), definitely a full-size, long-handle spade shovel (partly for safety reasons)(at Big Lots, Walmart), water, folding stool, mosquito lotion, and zip lock bags to water proof your electronics/wallet. Travel light (back pack is handy (at most thrift stores).
Optional items - Snack, camera, cell, vial, eye dropper, crevice-ing tools, & lanyard to hold your sucker bottle.
Supplies - Most of us use the Garrett Standard Gold Panning Kit that Little River Marina Store sells for about $30 as it has everything you need except boots and shovel. They also sell the what/where/how-to Recreational Gold Panning Guide, and the Lake Allatoona Gold Map plotted with over two dozen confirmed gold creeks. Also drinks, snacks and mosquito repellent.
Panning Rules, Etiquette and Safety - This creek is on Army Corps property. They only allow gold prospecting in the stream bed with pans and shovels. They do have enforcement authority. See http://www.sam.usace.army.mil/Portals/46/docs/recreation/OP-AL/Docs/Gold%20panningpolicy.pdf for details, and please refill your holes.
Who Else - Kids, friends, novices, observers, & pets welcome. NO need to RSVP.
Origin of Gold – For latest theory see: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2013/07/17/gold-neutron-star/2521311/
