Who would have thought we would have seen near $700 gold prices this year. Even more startling is the fact that platinum has closed this week at $794.00. That’s right…..gold traded higher early last week than platinum is bringing this week. AND they are up from yesterday.

The Whites V/Sat metal detector was interesting last weekend to run, but it will take some getting used to, as I expected. Didn’t find much in the way of gold, and it is looking like it will be our last trip this season. Since our youngest is bound for the Philippines in about 10 days, we will spend his last two Saturdays with him in Greeley. The weekend after will take us to Longmont for a big family picture, as well as the Gem Show being in town. Then Larry will be on call the weekend after that. Pretty much ends our season for us. I am still hearing about trips being made to Cache Creek to find gold, and some exploring that is going on, and as long as the weather holds and the banks don’t freeze, people will still be taking gold out of there until the last day of November.

We saw pictures of a real nice $2.50 gold coin this past week, at Gold ‘N’ Detectors. It was found a few weeks ago with a metal detector and is in very good condition with sharp edges and images. Finder didn’t say where, of course, but he had also found another coin with it.

News is scarce right now, or maybe it is the amount of time I am using to learn a new software program and a script for a new store format. It DOES seem like the magazines are piling up for me to read. Oh, well, they will have to wait until I have time. It’s about time to start running the links again to DIY equipment. Stay tuned each week as I post one or two with the newsletter.

We will have fabulous weather here for the next couple of days before it turns cold just in time for Halloween. Yeah, that’s right. It’s almost “All Hallows Eve” already. Happy Birthday Marsha!!!! She isn’t a witch, ‘cause her B.D. is the day before. That means next Saturday is All Saints Day, Sunday is the end of Daylight Savings, Monday we get a break, and Tuesday we decide who will run our country for the next four years. Busy week! GET OUT AND VOTE!!! IT MATTERS!!!!!

Good Prospecting to You,
Shirley (MQS)
