The stuff of dreams

Recommended Posts

A friend and I were out checking some possible prospecting locations in the mother lode last week. We stopped at the Ironstone vineyards to look at their mining museum. I thought you might be interested in the nugget they have on display


P.S. It was found in 1993 at the Jamestown mine and weighs 60 lbs.

The Crown Jewel....

I saw a show on that piece. A worker at the mine saw it going up a conveyor belt and thought it was a piece of equipment that had broken off.

There is a guy sitting on top of it gold panning.

And it is kept in a pretty hefty vault.

Nice pics, thanks for sharing.
