Interesting. In years past I have worked 80 Acres of claims on Graves Creek. and some of the club claims on the Sixes. This year I am out prospecting all over the state for something different.

My roofer just took off to work a sluice box on a mining claim. He left me with a half finished tile job that I'm trying to figure out how to complete by myself.

He says the claim just above his hit a rich vein. Sorry, but I don't know the location.

Construction workers in Central Oregon. They take off for the opening day of hunting season, when the salmon are running, and any time the weather is right for gold panning.

Does Sluicing sound better?

My Club heard some rumors of a new load vein. Doesn't help placer much.

Nope, and only two of my sons know the approximate location.
I never told them, but they got curious as to why I always went to the trouble of going there because the hunt/fish payoff isn't that great.
They shadowed me one day, but I saw them and lost them.

Truthfully, I have Elk and Deer hunted, Trout and Salmon fished, and camped in that area for 50 years.

I first heard that story when I was about 16 and got a good case of gold fever.

I first found it by panning moss along a seasonal creek, while I was cutthroat fishing.
I always take my gold pan with me when I go there.
It hasn't made me a lot of money, but has got me through some hard times over the years.

There is one particular area that has alway produced for me, but my old man legs can't take me there anymore.
The biggest thing, is to get there, you need tons of stamina and the skills of an Oregon backwoods ninja not to be noticed.
I have been shot at twice through the years.
It's not on public land, and there is no way to get there other than some serious heavy duty nighttime brush busting on foot.

And if you have ever got off a trail in that type of coast range woods, you know it ain't easy, even during the daytime.
