Saturdays outing....

decent gold allright, just a lot of effort to get it. perhaps get an electric jackhammer with a generator. Assuming that you went to Johnnie area over by the congress mine, the deepest hole there is but a small nick in the placer producing ground there.

Beside the volcanics on the west side of the highway, there's also a lot of nuggets found in the slates on the eastern side, for which it will pay to carry sniping tools. There are those that think the Lost Breyfogle Mine is really what became the Johnnie Mine.
