2016 season start

We are having a rain day in Dawson.  A good day for a shower and laundry.  Those two things are events in Dawson!  I don’t think any of us around here smell like pretty flowers…..

I bought a new toy for the mine site.  I’m going to dig a REALLY big hole.  I bought a 300 Komatsu excavator it weighs about 70,000 lbs. and has a 6 foot wide bucket.  I bought it at an auction in Edmonton Alberta.  It is a 2006 but it looks nice and seems to work well so far!!!

We saw bears, big horn sheep and bison on our drive from Washington.  It was a nice drive although we stayed in Fort Nelson for a day waiting for them to clear the snow off the pass over the Rocky Mountains.

We have not been able to get to one mine site this season because of high water.  We ford Bonanza creek to get up to that site.  Bonanza creek is now a river……we will wait!

Several people said they wanted to come visit this season, but each has canceled.  If anyone wishes to visit and have a guide in the Dawson area you are invitedP1020145 20160519_193400P1020136.  We currently have plans to return to Washington around the first of August this year.

Sorry about the blurry ram.  I was doing driver stuff at the same time!

Kathy continues to be a great helper, best friend and my love!  Yeh!  Really cool!

About moregold1

I have been involved with mining and related industries, since about 1982. My father liked prospecting, so my brothers and I went on a number of prospecting adventures, when we were young. I first visited Alaska in 1982, then mined there in 1983. I have been involved in different ways with mining in Oregon, California, Nevada, Guyana South America, and of course The Yukon Territory.
