The family and I took a trip to a friend of ours claim.
He has found some great things such as large smokey quartz crystals, Goethite, large fluorites, Amazonite and much more. Most all have come in combos also. Very Nice!!

Here are some pics of Dan and I digging our own hole there. smile.gif

AWESOME.......I want to play in that hole, I can tell that the dirt is so solid that collapse is not possible ( you can't make a smooth wall in the second photo with loose pack )

BUT precaution is always the better part of thinking when your looking at a few tons at minimum above you.

I've got a climbing harness, lets play

laugh.gif I'll bring the shovels! I was thinking that maybe we could leave that rock in there for a ledge to put all our wonderful finds on before we get them out of the hole. biggrin.gif
We could just start cutting into the left more and start stepping it down again.
