  • goldenfuture: Just so it's clear, I am not much of a forum fan, but meeting great people is about the only benefit.

  • goldenfuture: Be more concerned about your own success/failures!  Focus on what you did right or will do right.  When that time comes, you earn the integrity.  A man of integrity runs ship, there is no other Captain.  There's a lot of Captains, few noteworthy.

How do you tell when you have hit bedrock?
« on: February 04, 2012, 08:08:42 PM »

Well the simple answer is that it is fairly solid rock, though it may be igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary in nature, sometimes solid, and sometimes quite fractured, heres a few pictures of a claim I have on the Fraser River that demostrates this a bit........Greywolf









The last two picture show a quartz vein with interesting sulfides and there is some wired gold within the quartz as well........

That quartz looks like a good place to test out some detectors
