Summer Gold Prospecting in Colorado



Fire at Cache Creek

Yes, there was another RV that burned at Cache Creek last week.  Right across from the trailer that burned last year.  Make sure your propane connections are secure, and think twice about bringing a motorhome down through those dips.  There is plenty of camping up above in the forest.

There was, also, a highbanker that was stolen from the area.  The pump was left alone and only the highbanker was taken.  Very strange.

Gold is at $1241 this morning, and we spent a delightful weekend at a family reunion and visiting with our kids.  We will be moving the trailer this next week to a private campground where we have purchsed a lot and are looking forward to having more room to spread out again.  The two sheds will help with all our mining junk, too, and we won't have to keep it all in the truck all the time.  We can also begin collecting rocks again, and have friends over more. 

Summer is finally here!  This also means that we will get more river time and UTV time.  I'm sure you are looking forward to more of this yourselves, as well.  The rivers are still running very high, so be very careful if you are near those rushing waters.  We are looking forward to a summer filled with prospecting in new areas and still lending a hand at gold prospecting in Colorado with Tin Pan Prospector.

If you are in the Colorado Springs area this weekend, stop in at the Western Mining Museum (exit North Academy entrance - east) for a rock exhibit put on by the local rock and gem clubs.  GPOC always gets involved, too, and it should be a great weekend of fun.

Have a great week!

Good Prospecting to You,
Shirley
