Question of the Week: http://www.hookedongold.com/custformnew258670.html
CONGRATULATIONS TO : JOHN 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.
NOW THAT YOU HAVE HAD A CHANCE to view the gold pieces this week, we are giving you a break on their prices for the Christmas Season. We will be offering 20% off the price of the larger nuggets, the new pendant, AND FREE SHIPPING. Also, a bag of Madam Queen Shirley?s Magic Black Sand Panning Concentrate will be included with each ?PoopTube? Mini Sluice through the Holiday Season.
www.hookedongold.blogspot.com posting this past week was last week?s newsletter. There is more to post, but we have been busy with a new website and a new newsletter format that we haven?t worked the bugs out of yet. I have put in way too many hours to try and get it to work, but it is like trying to get anything to work with HP?..won?t work. The format I found is very nice, but I can?t seem to get it to work with any program and it breaks my sitebuilder template. So? for now I am sending the old one in the old style.
NEW! We found a conversion chart that went in nicely on the charts/ethics page. Take a look at it.
CHRISTMAS TIME IS FOR KIDS??..Young and old. HobbyTron has a selection of ?toys? for all ages. R.C. cars, helicopters, boats, you name it, Airguns, Robots, Kits. Check them out by clicking on the link below! You won?t believe what they have for you. There will be money off coupons on the website you can use towards your purchases and shipping in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Check the blog page for the link.
You?re gonna find more info at the bottom of the page that slipped by me as I ran through and updated the newsletter. DANG! I HATE it that the new format isn?t working yet.
GPOC Temporary Page is athttp://www.hookedongold.com/new263863.html They will be having their annual Children?s Toy Drive at the Christmas Party this year. Bring an UNWRAPPED gift or two for the drive on December 13th, plus a dish to share.
GPAA COLORADO SPRINGS CHAPTER will be holding their Christmas Party December 9th at Las Palomas Restaurant.
GPR will be holding their members Christmas Party 20th at the Clements Community Center.
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.
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. During the Christmas Season, a bag of Madam Queen Shirley?s Magic Black Sand Panning Concentrates will be included with your order.
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. ALL ARE ON SALE NOW! 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.
We sure are in a deep freeze here! Gave me some time to wander around on the forums. GPAA has a new one up at www.goldprospectors.org. You might want to give it a look.
The new Mining Journal is out, and a brief look at it showed me an article on platinum placers in Alaska. Not about gold, but they sure did pull one heck of a lot of platinum out of the ground! Over 50 million ounces! Or was it 500 million? Can?t remember. It?s too late, and I?ve been working too long. LOL!
I have had many reports of people prospecting down at the new GPOC claim, Prospector #3, that have been getting lots of flour gold coming our of the sand bars. The weather has been pretty good the past few weeks, and the claims have had people on them most weekends. If the weather holds in B.V., it sounds like a good place for members to go and play for a day or two.
Until Next Week.
Good Prospecting to You,
Larry and Shirley Weilnau
