River's high this time of the year. Comment your experience with gold prospecting. We'd love to hear from you.

We would enjoy hearing what you have to say.

A Message to Brandon

Again Brandon, I'm sorry you didn't get gold. I have learned one thing from this experience with you: I will not sell paydirt on this site. We have not done it  so far and will not do it in the future. I have given away material but not sold it. We wish you the best. ...Linda Newton-Perry
