President’s Letter, continued
If you have a re-circulatory unit it
s acceptable as long as you don't
draw waterfrom the river while in use. We expect a good turn out and are hoping todiscover some of the hidden secrets of the glacial deposits from 5 million yearsago. I myself plan to explore the upper North West 40 acres where the bedrockis exposed and engraved by the ice striations
from the North. In this area
as Ihave secretly scoured the cracks and fractures in the rock which seem to beundisturbed and are perhaps a good place to start a search for an alluvialdeposit. The river
has shown good gold by those who know where to look. Ihave seen the yellow metal drawn from a one-gallon bucket of material frombehind a rock in the high water stream bed.September 16th, 17th and 18th is the Denver Gem and Mineral show
at theDenver Merchandise Mart at I-25 and 58th Ave on the North East corner. TheGPOC could use volunteers to help set-up on Thursday night at about 5pm. OnFriday we need help with about 500 children per hour with panningdemonstrations tthat begin at 8am.Thank you to all of you who volunteer in helping the general public with betterunderstanding of how it was in the Colorado Gold Rush of 1859
and how ourgreat state was booming due to this golden discovery and how we still to thisday educate people on the aspects of this, we call, Gold Prospectors ofColorado.
Sincerely, Your President and public servant, Big Ben
