Metal Detecting In The 16 To 1 Mine, Alleghany

8 posts in this topic

I had a chance to do a little prospecting there about 15 years ago. I even found a little gold.

Actually, it's me holding the Whopper. I've never found anything that big.

The 16 to 1 mine is a really fascinating place. I always enjoy visiting. Leonard - I missed seeing you at the Denver GPAA Show. Maybe next time.

I was just out of the hospital from 3 weeks of battling meningitis with 200 antibiotic IV's. I would have liked seeing you.

 

I have a couple of good 16-1 and Allegheny stories that I tell sitting around the campfire. It's an interesting place.

Maybe do up an article - sounds like the kind of thing we are interested in.

I do use the 7000 on my own, but while I was in the 16 to 1, I did not. The miners were familiar with the 7000 so there was no reason for me to demonstrate it to them.
