Do you have cabin fever in a big way? Are you waiting for that first opportunity to go prospecting and find some gold? Boy, WE sure do!!!! Looks like the trip to Arizona will be sometime the first part of April. In the mean time, there are birthdays, Easter, Spring vacation, when we get to visit with the two older grandsons, and snow. Temperatures are moderating into the 50’s, so we will get to go and play on Clear Creek in the next few weekends just to get our prospecting fix. In Arizona, we will be in the Prescott area where my brother lives. Always a fun time for us, early in the season. We are trying to make connections with my brother’s friend near Stanton to see if we can find some of his gold for him with the metal detectors.

I saw a very interesting report on the newswires about mining in India this week. Their cabinet voted to ease their mining policy to shorten the time it takes to get new mining leases granted. It is expected to take 6 to 12 months with the new system. Now, you might wonder why this is so important. Well, it seems only 10% of India’s minerals have been explored for, and as we all know, India needs more and more minerals for their booming economy. If they can get those in country, everyone wins. There will be less pressure worldwide in the competition for these minerals. However, don’t expect it to be over night. It does take years to develop these things.

So, is everyone tired of the promised changes in the site as I am? Man o man, there seems to be one thing after another that gets in the way of my moving forward. Take heart. There should be things going up this next week. Hopefully, by Saturday night the changes my tech needs to make to the pages will be complete and I can start duplicating the template to get additional pages up. If not, I’ll do it anyway and we will have to deal with the additional pages when the time comes. Time is a wastin’ and summer prospecting will be here before we know it.

I have a couple of new link partners, so check them out. Also, here is a link to prospecting books that I don’t find too many other places. http://www.research-unlimited.com/index.html

More researching information will be out this weekend. While I know most of you only want someone to point you to a spot to dig gold, at these prices, there aren’t many who will give you that information willingly, and there aren’t many sites out there that will even tell you where the open spots are. We are trying to give you that information for some of Colorado. If you have information that the public can use for other states, we can start pages for each of those areas.
World Open Panning website has this year’s world wide panning competitions listed and they add more all the time. A great site to visit: www.worldopenpanning.homestead.com .

Until next week……
