Gold Prospecting to Begin Memorial Day Weekend


Mt. Massive earlier today from Adelaide

Gold has closed up this week at $956.50 and silver at $14.69. Quite a ride from the $880's a few weeks ago, eh?

Toady we ventured out to do some prospecting. Found a bit of ore and got caught in a downpour at about the Hayden Ranch through Twin Lakes. Granite was dry when we got there on our way back to camp, but by 5:15 p.m. there was some pretty intense rain falling in BV. It has stopped, but we are predicted to have more of the same through the weekend.

To boot, the hills were all white this morning and I expect them to be that way again tomorrow. Hopefully, the gate will get opened tomorrow to the highbanking area at Cache Creek. We'll stop by tomorrow and see if it is or not.

I haven't had much time to blog the last few days, but now that we are settled in, more or less, I will have more time to get more posted about what we are doing, and what is going on. There is much going on on twitter, also, and you can follow the 'twits' with an RSS feeder or your own account.

Speaking of a lot going on, if you haven't joined the new prospectors networking site at http://www.hookedongoldprospecting.ning.com you are missing a lot of information, questions, answers and activity. Discussion groups have been started on many topics and we have members signing up almost daily. The site has lots to keep you busy and interested. Check it out, join up and invite your prospecting friends to do the same.

Good Prospecting to You,
Shirley
