Ophir, Alaska 1956

Recommended Posts

I thought that post title might get your attention ....smile.


Hi guy's and gal's my name is Dick and I am an old man(78) retired in Texas. I met up with Geowizard on another forum (non gold type). We struck up a conversation about Gold and Ophir. To make a long story short, I was stationed at a US Air Force radar station near Ophir in 1956 and tromped around the old tailings that Geowizard speaks of in his writing's. 


I will be following his steps,failure's and success this season at and around Ophir so if you see my name here and there you will know why I am here. I wish I were able to be an active prospector with you all as it has always been a keen interest of mine. Yes I did find gold at Ophir in 1956 and again in 1963 when Uncle Sam sent me back for a second tour of duty.


Have a good day,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
