The last word on Idaho dredging or EPA is nothing is going to change, at least as far as this year goes. So no dredging in Idaho this year again without your permission slip from EPA. Good luck.

Rock Show this year went well and I'd like to per- sonally thank each and everyone of you that came and helped. It is much appreciated.

Club trailer is For Sale as voted on last month at the meeting and it's my decision to offer it to our club members first. If your interested in a small 10' x 5'6 " enclosed cargo trailer, you can email me your offer/s or contact me personally to look at it.

Winter Storms & Floods Can Bring Spring Gold

Typical winter storms that regularly occur in gold country usually do not create enough havoc to force substantial amounts of "new" gold into movement. However, when major flooding like what happened in Colorado in September of 2013 is followed by

a “bad” winter, a great deal of gold can be set free. When tons of

rock, cobble, and boulders are swept downstream along bedrock during a huge storm, quite a bit of destruction occurs. Plants, weeds, and trees that normally grow along the river and gravel bars are washed away. And when a major storm or flood tears up large portions of a streambed, a fair amount of this newly- released gold, because of its weight, will be deposited along the

riverbed and settle into cracks and crevices.

Stream bed layers caused by several floods are referred to as

“flood layers.” Flood layers are usually a different color, con-

sistency and hardness from the other layers of material within the

streambed, making them easy to recognize. Larger, heavier piec-

es of gold will work their way down toward the bottom of a flood layer as they are washed downstream. The smallest and lightest flakes of gold might not work their way down through a flooding layer at all, but might remain dispersed within the material. Of

course not all flood layers contain gold in large quantities, but it’s

a good place to start.

Some of the best areas to look for flood gold are where the stream or river widens out, or levels out, or changes direction. These areas can allow concentrations of gold to collect either on bedrock or in the contact zones between layers. Another place that tends to collect gold are gravel bars, especially the ones lo- cated towards the inside of bends in a waterway.

No one ever hopes that Mother Nature releases the type of fury that causes loss of life and property, but when a catastrophic weather event occurs in a gold-bearing ar- ea, take advantage of it. Get out there and get your share of the GOLD! Good luck and be safe!

"When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to pro- duce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed."
