  7. Uncovering Family Artifacts ( Sifting History ) I return to the Family Homesite this time to Sift through the dirt looking for Family artifacts. Filmed in the Fall of 2019 we uncover a Chauffeur's pin that belonged to my Great Aunt Kathryn's husband William Ernest Thrower. The pin dates back to 1935-36 # 51927 from California. a little bit about William Thrower he was a World War I United States Army veteran having served from March 26 1917 to July 2 1919. Sergeant William E. Thrower 81 Division 324 Infantry, Company K of the American Expeditionary Forces . Buried in Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Bruno, Ca 1895-1965
  8. Cleaning Bedrock for Gold Nuggets The Rain can't stop Jeff and Gary (Two Toe's ) as they head to the Hills in search of those elusive Gold Nuggets. Jeff has his White's Gold Master V-Sat (VLF) Metal Detector and Gary has his White's TDI (Pulse Induction) Detector see which one finds the most and biggest Gold in the California Mother lode. Clear that Bedrock and check those Crevice's there might be Gold Nuggets hidden in there !!!! SG 018
  9. Mining Relic's of the Mother lode There are relic's from the California Gold Rush all over the State. The pictures in the video are from Grass Valley to Beckwourth and just about every camp or village in between. When Gold was discovered in California in 1848 it started a mass expedition to the territory in search of great wealth. I hope you enjoy the pictures and the video I just love visiting the Historic mining towns and sites .
  10. Thanks Chris, sorry for the slow reply - I went under the radar for a while. I see what you mean. We recently approached a rancher with so good ground. There was no way he was going to lease to us. Also I recently found out that Federal land can have split estates - making the mineral rights quite complicated. I see why larger scale mining can be serious business with a lot of potential cost involved - even at the business/litigation end. Thanks again, Nathan
  11. Hi all, I am a newbie miner on my first season bulk testing my two adjoining claims that are under one SMES. I have a proposed plan operations (working on) that I am getting ready to submit to the DEQ and Forest Service here in western Montana. I made a miscalculation on the historical dredge results of the ground I am on. I thought that the gold values were $20 p/oz in 1947 but just found out they where $34.71 p/oz. This puts my estimated ground averages at $7.70 per yard (Historical dredge results at $17 cents per yard in 1947). I have a minimal outfit, 2 people, one 12 ton excavator and a 10 - 15 yph trommel that has a water recycling system and sand screw. I have done the math a few times and it seems that this ground might be too lean - bringing in around 1/2 oz per day for and 8 hour day. Without going into to many details about my plan (which I am willing to do), am I out of my mind? Best, Nathan

    To claim, or not to claim

    Turns out it was never registered. The payments were never made. computer glitch. The BLM did an extensive search for me and told me it is mine for the taking. As soon as the snow melts off I will pack up into the mountains and stake it.
