Question of the Week: http://www.hookedongold.com/custformnew258670.html
CONGRATULATIONS TO : GLENN for being the first correct qualified answer to this week’s question! Take a look at the answer if you haven’t been onsite to see it yet.
NEW GOLD PIECES HAVE BEEN ADDED TO THE SITE THIS PAST WEEK. Look for their announcement and a description of the special piece near the bottom of the newsletter.
www.hookedongold.blogspot.com will be carrying extra information that you may be interested in. It will fill the gap for us until we can add more pages to the main website. Also, we will be posting the Friday newsletters later in the week for you to view.

I have a couple of link partners that I would like to tell you about for Christmas. Both of these sites have items that the prospector in your life would love to have.
www.colorado-trails.com which has several media items on Spanish trails and signs in the Southwest that can lead to old Spanish mines, and
www.historicmapsrestored.com which reproduces historic maps, many of which have never been reproduced before, from around the U.S. Check out their wide selection of maps today. P.S. they are not affiliate sites, just good folks with items of interest to you.
If you find a broken link PLEASE LET US KNOW so we can fix it.
Well, as soon as these two announcements left this page, we had some new people tell us they wanted to prospect on Clear Creek in Wheatridge, so back up it goes. Fortunately, we got to tell them before the cops did. LOL! I have a couple of announcements about Clear Creek as it runs through Wheatridge, and also about Boulder County. PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT you cannot use ANY type of equipment on the river in Wheatridge. You WILL have your equipment confiscated and you will be ticketed, even if you are only using a finish pan.
Also, prospecting is still being allowed in Boulder County, BUT ONLY ON FEDERAL LAND. If you are caught using any equipment anywhere else you will be fined and your equipment will be confiscated, even if you are only using a finish pan.
If you are coming off the river with lots of black sand and you have never found a way to separate it fast and easily, then it is time to get your mini sluice concentrate separator. You can find it at: http://www.hookedongold.com/catalog244861.html
It comes complete with adjustable legs, pump, hopper, hose and the mini sluice. It will separate black sand faster and more easily for you than anything else we have used, and at an affordable price. Works GREAT with the blue bowl for separating instead of screening before you do your last separation with the bowl.
Anyone interested in getting a continuing gold quote streamer on your computer taskbar can go to www.kitco.com and look for the little Kcast blue and gold banner near the top of the page. It isn’t always there, but if you refresh the page a few times it should pop up. I haven’t seen it on their page for a long time, but I’m glad it’s there now. I was able to put it on the taskbar of the laptop last night so I can see what the price is anytime I am online.
EVERYBODY LOVES gold! The larger nuggets we promised are posted for you to consider for gift giving and collecting. One piece of particular interest is a bailed pendant of California gold. The 2 lb. bags of Colorado dredge concentrate with Colorado gold on the gold page are waiting for you to get cleaned up. Look for “Madam, Queen Shirley’s Magic Black Sand Panning Concentrates”. Make your gold pan Magically turn yellow. Colorado Concentrates, Colorado GOLD! Comes with our Black Sand Separation panning tips. GOLD AND CONCENTRATES ARE AT:
http://www.hookedongold.com/catalog244888.html GET ONE……GET TWO for double the fun! [Just added to the panning concentrates: While we are cleaning some of the ore pieces we find, some of it falls off and is too small to do anything with, so we are adding a piece or two of the wires, flakes or crystal pieces to the bags. You may find them clean, or with ore still attached that is black, quartz, or red. Some pieces may be larger than the other sands, too.]
THE ARKANSAS RIVER WILL BE CLOSED TO MOTORIZED EQUIPMENT FOR THE WINTER UNTIL APRIL 1st, 2007. The river will still open for panning, sluicing, and dry washing.
CHRISTMAS IS COMING! Now is the time to look for all those things you want Santa to bring you so you can put it on your list.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO EVERYONE! May your day with family and friends be extra special. Until next week,
Good Prospecting to You,
Larry and Shirley Weilnau
