Looking for Gold

Last winter Rob spent time checking out areas to stake a gold claim. This was one of them. The area was pure fantasy in its beauty. But, it did not yield enough gold to stake a claim. Have you a story to tell on gold claims or prospecting? Email Rob and tell him about it. Rob prospects for gold in the Myrtle Creek area. Email at perry_697@hotmail.com

Darrell's New Gold Claim

"Hey! It's difficult to focus the camera and be brilliant at the same time, not to mention having fun!" Rob Perry.

Darrell Working his Claim

Sunday, Aug.26,  Darrell and friends worked his new claim on Cow Creek (can't tell you more). Gold prospectors are tight lipped about their claims. If you are one you know.

Rob says, "Good luck with that PINK duct tape, Jimmy."

Location Shots Fired

This river is the beautiful Umpqua River.  Friends, Rob and Allan, experienced  one of a gold prospectors worst fears here. Shots were fired at them (well over their heads). The two were making their way down the river to an area that was open to place a claim.  

Actually they didn't know if the area was open to claim or not, so they thought they'd go looking for gold claim markers to see if the area was open. (They couldn't get the BLM mining expert to return their calls. If they'd talked to the man perhaps this shooting could have been avoided.)

No one was hurt, but it rattled the friends. This shooting took the friends to safer gold prospecting areas: those open to the public. ... Have you had such an experience? Why not tell us about it, comment!
