Latest Greatest Moore Creek News

Hi,

Well, here it is May 9th and I just got word the snow is off our airstrip at Moore Creek. That is early and so first weekers can expect greener trees and better thawed ground than last year.

We had a couple drop outs so there is now an ability once again to sign up for two weeks if a person wishes. First week of June 5th has one opening, week of June 13th has one opening, week of June 21st has three openings, and last week of June 29th has ten openings.

Plan to support the operation a bit with the D9 this summer. Big plan is to clear the old road down to the lower claims of brush and have a taxi service, making the lower ground much more accessible than last summer. An excavator will also be on site hopefully but I'm still working on that. My goal is going to be to make people regret they did not go this year!

Time is flying and I can't wait to see you guys the first week on June 5th. My crew will be heading up around the 1st to prepare camp. I plan on being there a couple days at least to hang out with the first weekers. Then out a bit but back a couple days before the second weekers leave and I'll be hanging around for the first few days of week 3. And back in just before the week 4 people leave. So my plan is to see you all up a t Moore Creek this summer. Bob and John will of course be there the entire time.

Do not miss this chance. Check out the details at http://www.moorecreek.com/cost_and_availability.htm

Final note - if you have signed up for this summer and have a balance due, send it in now.

Steve,

I already regret not being able to go back this year. I went for 3 weeks last year and had a great time. It sounds like it is going to be even better this year.

Also, you could not have two better camp hosts than Bob and John.

I am sure your guests will have a great time and find gold too.

Hi Ken,

A couple weeks is great but three weeks gets a bit long! I generally am on a long burn when I am on a serious nugget hunt, but can only keep it up so long. No problem for a week, two weeks I'm done. I guess I could try and pace myself better but then I end up simply doing in three weeks what I could do in two!

This is almost sure to be the last season at Moore Creek for $1995 per week. I'm pretty sure it will be $2500 a week next year and so going this year will save a person some over waiting for next year. I hope that we will be able to use the D9 and excavator in a more direct support role for the visitors next year. We will start on a very limited basis this year. But if we start running heavy equipment all day every day to help people find gold our costs will go up dramatically and we will have charge more. The good news is we should be able to make it easier for the average Joe to find gold. Right now the experienced operators have a huge edge.

Hi George,

I've got myself into some pretty tight timing so I'm crossing my fingers a little bit. We have the DC-6 charter lined up for the 31st. The trommel and conveyor are supposed to ship from Minnesota on Wednesday. With careful shipping it should be here the 29th so I'm cutting it close. I'm taking the excavator over to get weighed this week, but fear we may have to strip it down some more to make our weight limit.

But with some work and a little luck we should be on the ground at the mine sometime on the 31st. And greeting these guys on the 5th!
