Backhoe has been repaired, we’re back in action again. At the digsite we ran into some nasty, sticky, black material. We ran it through the trommel and we’re disappointed with the gold returns, so we’re back searching for the streak we were on at the end of last season.
Its frustrating to dig a little, pan it out, dig some more, pan it out, but its part of mining I guess.
We have been running into these silver metallic nuggets, not sure what to make of them, I’m thinking of having them tested to make sure its not something valuable.
Ok, so that’s depressing, how about some good news? I’ve been searching for a company willing to do a magnetometer survey for us, and I think I have finally hit paydirt! We’ve decided that we could spend a lifetime digging holes in this place and never find the big strike. It’s time to be a little more scientific. I’ll keep you posted, its pretty exciting.
In the meantime, back to digging holes…
