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. which has several media items on Spanish trails and signs in the Southwest that can lead to old Spanish mines, and 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: “”
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.

The new FREE, easy reader downloadable link is here:

Anyone interested in getting a continuing gold quote streamer on your computer taskbar can go to 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: 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.

Yup that new mining journal said it was half a MILLION ounces of platinum. The edition in the new reader has the details. That link again is:

Until Next Week.

Good Prospecting to You,
Larry and Shirley Weilnau A COOL little website!
