well well this Yukon ground is full of surprises, we moved our washplant to our big cut and after an hour of sluicing, shut down to have a look see. there was a fair bit of gold on the screens and also garnet, I never new about the garnet being in with the gold but there it was, not real big or anything but still there kinda cool , maybe we will tap into an under ground beer keg next lmao.gifcheers.gifbeercheer.gif[Image: P1050454.jpg]';" src="[Image: P1050454.jpg]" class="maximage" alt="İmage" title="Click image to see full size (opens in this window)" />[Image: P1050453.jpg]';" src="[Image: P1050453.jpg]" class="maximage" alt="İmage" title="Click image to see full size (opens in this window)" />[Image: P1050458.jpg]';" src="[Image: P1050458.jpg]" class="maximage" alt="İmage" title="Click image to see full size (opens in this window)" />

Good work Whaler

Beats the hell of a paper paycheck chuckle.gif

octo , that's a Garnet

Anywhere the earth is heavily mineralized as where this is ,

you apt to find gems .

Amber is common in some gold baring areas too .

I have found nice jade and turquoise , garnet , and that blue
stuff too .

Blue Mud is awesome to find

good chance there will be diamonds in blue mud

Nice! It should be similar conditions north of us, a lot of mining going on up there. Gold too.

hey JR. we did get a pretty good haul on this one after sluicing for six more hours we did a cleanout and ended up with 37 ounces of gold what is in the photos was only after an hour and just the gold on top , underneath are carpet like mats that trap the gold it's when you clean those out that you find the real weight beercheer.gifbeercheer.gif

Yes, awesome pics Whaler.

Hey Octo, I think the red stone is garnet as well...seems it comes in many colors.



Hey Shadow, sorry to hear your sister is grumpy. Life is too short for that.

You are welcome. If you manage to get some you could make personal jewellery out of them, or if you are into using stones for chakra cleansing, the garnet stones are good for attaining the expansion you awareness.

Hmmmm.

Well, we're off antique hunting and I'm on a personal experiment to buy red garnet and take it to my next job interview (which should be in a few weeks) and test it's effectiveness in helping me impress TPTB there. Have a nice day everyone.
