Colorado -- 3 Trips to the Ark River So Far in February...

Hey Gold Adventurers...

Despite it being the middle of winter, I've actually made it out and over to the river for a little gold prospecting fun...

Uploading pics these days is SO painful.........I'll just post the links to the videos I made.

Enjoy the tagalong!

Hi Randy:
Great hearing that you were able to get back on the river.
I'll have to give a look at the video's.
Hope there was a little yellow stuff in the bottom of your pan.

Dickb,

I am forced to "rework" a spot on the river where a feeder spring flows into the river... This keeps the area unfrozen.

Trouble is I have worked it hard in past winters, so the material left is very low grade, very little ultra fine gold, BUT.......a little is better than nothing, especially in the winter! Wink

Got 1 to 2 inches of snow here last night at the house. Lots more up on the hills. Was a low of 7F out this morning. Up to 22F now.

Off to town the Post Office and gym.
