    Well today I decided to prospect a bit differently, as opposed-to toting and swinging one of my metal detectors. The only tools that I brought and used was a pair of tweezers, a blow tube, my camera, and my "Eagle-eyes". I wanted to spot them with my naked-eyes (this maybe?? challenging for some). I hadn't been to this wash for months, since way before this winter came into the Prescott / lynx Creek area. Due to all the snow/rain storms over this winter all of the dirt roads have been too muddy-gumbo to travel on. I soon discovered that much of the (previous) exposed bedrock sections had been covered over with lite-weight sand and gravel; but there where still a few stretches still exposed. So, ....getting down on my hands and knees (with knee pads I might add), and slowly crawling along, I commenced to "Eye-Ball-Prospect" the remaining exposed bedrock for those elusive nuggets, and /or flakes. Well, as my photo's show I ended up with nine, the biggest being a little picker that I am sure my detector would have sounded off on had I swung the coil over it. One photo shows both tweezer ends pointing to two (very small) nuggets at one time. This little venture also assured me that there most likely are larger nuggets in the area to be detected. ...........On a side-note: Check out my YouTube Channel at: ARIZONA GOLD NUGGET VENTURES; click on the SUBSCRIBE button, and ring the bell to view some of my video's where I video and explain "Where" the most-likely places for gold nuggets would be out in the gold fields.

    Hey Guys, I had to social distance myself, so I decided on a trip back to the old placers. Like always, digging tons of iron rubbish, this time I must of dug a dozen iron pick tips. I'm sure they were using the tips to pry open crack and it would just snap off the tips. I was working with my Minelab GPZ 7000 all day, moving rocks and racking sections of bedrock off. I ended up with 6.2 Grams of the good stuff in 5 gold nuggets total. I didn't get a picture of all the nuggets or a final shot, but here are a few I took during the earlier hours. A few pieces wedged in the bedrock cracks. Wishing and praying for health and wellness for you all during these crazy Coronavirus times. Rob

    Hope this is informative:( I have edited this because I inadvertently included some unproven statements…apologies) From a member of the Stanford Hospital Board. This is their feedback (for now) on Corona virus: The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - CORONAVIRUS -- 1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold 2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose. 3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees. It hates the sun. 4. If someone sneezes with it, it takes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne. 5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface - wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap. 6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it. 7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice. 8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on. 9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice. 10. Can’t emphasis enough - drink plenty of water! THE SYMPTOMS 1. It will first infect the throat, so you’ll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days 2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs, causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further. 3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. 4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you’re drowning. It’s imperative you then seek immediate medical attention. 17 17
