NEW! Prospecting Community Network! We have great group started with several already blogging and getting involved. You will be able to view the whole site for a few more weeks, and then only the main page. Check it out, and join up.

The BLM and GPOC are having some work done down at Point Bar fixing the coyote holes and uncovering some new area for you to play in. They should have the work completed this weekend. Don’t forget to join us there for Let’s Go Gold Panning Days May 8-10th.

Denver will host the first GPAA show they have had in three years on May 2nd and 3rd. A good time for all, and they give away some pretty nice door prizes. Lots to see here, a panning contest, and vendors of all sorts. $5.00 at the door gets a vial of gold to the first 100 through.

In the news the past few days were some interesting articles including one about the woman who sold those gold coins in a bank in Utah for face value. Here is the REST of the story .
Everyone knows how I love to talk about gold, but I found an article this past week about what silver might be ready to do and why it just might outstrip gold when all is said and done. Kitco was where I found this and you might want to check them out for information on metals. . Bullish on gold? Read this article for a nice take on why you just might be right. .

I have two more days before I can go out prospecting for gold. Lent will be over, and my pledge will be over and I can search for gold once again! Getting ready for Larry’s retirement, the website, the NEW website, the blog, and twitter has kept me busy, so the time has past quickly. I, however, have been too busy to keep the blog like I would like to or to make as many changes in the website as were needed. I will continue to work on the site pages, but some things will begin to slip through as prospecting season starts to heat up. Hey, a girl has to do, what a girl has to do! LOL!

Gold was absolutely flat today. I have never seen an open market day like this before. It was spooky.

Legislative stuff: S22 of the Omnibus Public Land Management was defeated, however it was resurrected and attached to HR146 by Senator Reid in the Senate and passed before debate or comment was made on it. Some 88,000 acres (if I remember the numbers correctly) have been put into some type of protected status since the first of the year. That is a HUGE percentage of our state that is now out of public use to the average man. The 500 MPH train wreck continues to barrel its’ way down the tracks without the ability for ANYONE to comment, debate, or change anything….the Dems simply pass a resolution to prohibit it. What do you suppose will happen when this train hits the bick wall? I'm thinkin' the swan dive over the cliff into the abyss could be spectacular. Just hope I'm NOT on board, know what I mean? LOL!

Although President Obama pledged to stop earmarks, these bills have contained over 8,500 earmarks that cannot be commented on or debated, leaving you, the taxpayer, in the dark. I suppose if he gets around to this by the end of his Presidency he can claim he stopped earmarking, but in the mean time he is signing everything that comes before him, even as he grandstands about what he isn’t going to allow.

That’s it for this week. Hope to see some of you at one of the events this summer. Don’t be shy, come on over and let me know who you are. I promise I won’t bite! Now, get out there and FIND SOME GOLD!
