  1. Hi John, Free membership for a decent claim might help.
  2. Have been up that way before, nice piece of property but really steep slopes in that area. Heading up that way soon to check out a hardrock mine with a old timer that told me about it. Most placer claims in that area are closed. Have not read or seen any detectable gold from that area. Spent a lot of time in the Walker basin area detecting old mine sites 40 years ago with a VLF. Jeeping in that area years ago my wife and I spotted a old buckboard wagon way down below in a gully. Came back the following weekend with my trailer and tools to take it apart and haul it up home. Damn, got there and
  3. Been busy researching old claims to to find a good one one that no longer is valid for the club. Came across this, check our the name of the discoverer near the bottom of the page. Anyone familiar with Kalifornia and Nevada gold history will recognize one of history's most famous prospectors. Have found about a half dozen invalid placer claims in good areas to check out. Dennis and I are waiting for the snow to melt in the higher elevation claims before we start the expedition.Shorty Harris Claim MRDS03212021.pdf
  4. Hi David, hope you and the family had a great Christmas. Well that's pretty crappy. Wonder how it happened. Susan checks our bank accounts daily, to much fraud out there. Thankfully you caught it quickly.
  5. Hi Martin, Satellite pictures show a massive amount of smoke from that fire heading east the fire is huge. We had one here by highway 58 about 2000 ac the pond fire. One about 3 miles behind us on Saturday they hit with phoscheck knocked it down quick, burning up at Walker Basin also. Way too many fires this year, the fire planes have been moving from one to another constantly. Good luck to you no fun to breathe smoke day and night.
  6. Glad to see see you had no problems . Lot going on up there Cerro Gordo had a fire that destroyed some of the historic town buildings they lost power from a lightning strike and no one can get up there the road washed out. Maybe the storm exposed some gold areas in Mazourka. Good luck to you!
  7. Hi Bill, just checking up on you. looks like that 5.8 was in your backyard. hope everything is okay
  8. Great they deserve every penny of it.
  9. I think you are right about the Mojave Preserve, its off limits. All the historical sights are protected in the preserve.
  10. Did not know that. When I was up in Mazourka years ago with my wife I wanted to take a 4x4 road back to a spring area and camp. There is a placer operation with shallow drifts along the bedrock, looked real interesting. When we got to the road there was about 10 people there moving large rocks across the road to prevent access a group called "Friends of the Inyos" the group that had pushed to put the areas into wilderness protection. They told me the area was now a wilderness area and I could not drive back there and prospect. I could walk back in but removal of minerals was not allowed well
  11. Hi Bill, Marble canyon gold is 70 to 115ft down in the bottom there are 3000ft of drifts on the bedrock It came from a ancient river bed still sections left up by Crooked creek 10,000 ft up but it is now in a wilderness area. Used to be placer claims on the hills surrounding marble canyon especially in the area where the road drops into the canyon, they are not in the D.V. park area. Check out the closed claims there.. North east of Chalfant are the Springs claims now closed. Some nice nuggets have been found there years ago, but steep rugged terrain. Don't give up on Mazourka there is gold t
  12. Fred was one of those people you just wanted to be around. We had many good times together in the Dale. It really saddens me to hear this. R.I.P Fred.
  13. Hi Michel, that article come from a Respiratory Dr. My wife's sister is a nurse in Landers Wyoming she sent it to us. Not retired still trying to make a living farming wine grapes. The ranch is up for sale, after it sells then I will be retired. Stay health,
  14. CORONA Common Sense Since they are calling on Respiratory therapist to help fight the Corona virus, and I am a retired one, too old to work in a hospital setting. I'm gonna share some common sense wisdom with those that have the virus and trying to stay home. If my advice is followed as given you will improve your chances of not ending up in the hospital on a ventilator. This applies to the otherwise generally healthy population, so use discretion. 1. Only high temperatures kill a virus, so let your fever run high. Tylenol, Advil. Motrin, Ibuprofen etc. will bring your fever down allowing th
  15. Not a surprise Bill. Everything goes up but our income. Bob
  16. Nice picture Bill, surprised the Inyos are almost snow free. May be able to make it up that way around the end of the month will let you know. Thanks, Bob
  17. Morning Bill, Like that area for prospecting. Was going to head up that way up that way around Thanksgiving. luckily I did not and missed the big storm. How much snow is on the ground around Lone Pine, Probably a lot still on the Inyos? Thanks Bob
  18. Has anybody been down to the If I Can/orange peel patch area since the rains? Was going to the Inyo Mountains but 23 the low on Sunday is too cold and there is snow still on the ground where I wanted to go. Thanks, Bob
  19. Rough and beautiful pieces. Those old timers were good at finding gold. If they had detectors back then there would not be much left. Bob
  20. Lot of nuggets represents a lot of hard work and a great time finding them. Bob
