We have the car packed up and making a trip to the claim again tomorrow. I really don't know how much time we will get there before it snows.
We have about 8 more buckets we can fill for a boring winter day later on....never know where the next corn flake may be hiding! I'd like to run some material too so I'll post if there's anything good.
I've been working in that area all week and I can feel the claim calling me. It's been torture I tell ya!
I have an idea for the biggest hole yet. The area we plugged up for the dredge earlier this summer has been over flowing for months onto the area I first opened up and it's soggy and saturated now. I might try to divert the creek on around further to dry it up and take advantage of that to open a huge hole right across the main channel. Seems like a decent plan and I was getting good gold there before anyway. Whoohoo!

Right on, pull out a nugget! I just started a new job, and will be limited to Clear Creek for the winter season.

We bailed on Saturday and went Sunday instead, the weather was much more favorable. We had a great day out there and saw really nice gold. I haven't cleaned up my snuffer or my cons yet so this weekend I'll get that done. I can't wait to see it!
