I went downstream about 50ft further than we did last year on the other side (I think we were too close to fishing struc last year). The Gold was about the same from what I was seeing in my upper box section. I haven't done a cleanup yet but I'd say relatively similar results.
Hopefully my claims will be accessible by the time CC goes out of control, that would be good timing for me.

Nice! Where were you at there? Same MM as before?



Yep, stayed on the road side of the creek since my daughter was wearing rubber boots. She worked the cobbles just outside the water's edge, and I worked a couple of large rocks in the middle of the creek.

Had a great time yesterday, weather was great, had one brief 20 minute shower. It was nice enough all day, that my daughter wore shorts and a t-shirt. She decided to skip a college class and hang with her old man shoveling rocks in the creek.

What do you mean out of control? Are you meaning that idiotic bike path they are putting in?

Sorry, my opinionated side came out..haha

I suspect he's referring to the water level and flow: USGS Clear Creek from April 2015-present.

The water will rise another foot or so, and the flow rate will spike around 2000ft^3/sec before coming back down over the next 5 months.

Could be the bike path though; they need to get their heavy equipment off the spot I was working last year is what I truly know. tongue.gif

I was referring to runoff. The bike path doesn't bother me... I'm only there in the winter. tongue.gif

Here is the +50 gold cleaned up from my birthday sluicing adventure on Tuesday. Pretty nice piece off to the right. The chunky piece in the middle is gold with some other host rock. I dug a pretty deep hole and it paid off with larger gold, probably won't be as much fine gold I'm guessing. Will clean the -50 and -100 gold tomorrow.

Nice day's haul! Happy belated birthday!!

And thanks Mrs CP; good to be back! Now if only the weather wasn't crappy this weekend so I could get out. Maybe Mon or Tue will look better. I've got my Museum volunteer gig Wed and Thur-Sat Mrs Crusty and I are making our third trip as Guardians on an Honor Flight taking WWII/Korea vets to DC to see the memorials.

That is outstanding. My Dad is a WWII Navy vet (USS Pensacola) and in his 90s. A few years ago he had the privilege of taking an Honor Flight and really, really enjoyed it! Said he was treated like a king... and that's what these guys deserve. emoticon-object-018.gif
Huge kudos and thank you to you and wife for contributing to this, it means a lot.

It is an amazing experience and so great to spend time with these guys and gals to hear their stories. Glad your dad got to go on one!

Well.... socked-in with snow and a day off. char060.gif Might have time to process.
This is my concentrate from the last two trips (some Gold in foreground that didn't shake down with the pile).
