good morning mining camp site
Quote this message in a reply
Well when it comes to mine and my dads sites I am the researcher,  I am rarely successful when it comes to finding a good period site, typically I come to find them trashed and picked over,  I have a diary from a local miner who lived in my area from the start of the goldrush till death.  He writes about living in a camp in an area I'm familiar with,  Well finally looks like my research paid off.  Went out with dad this morning and fell upon the site didn't excite me until both my dads and myselfs first target Were wreath buckles dug within 30 seconds of each other.  Anyways feels good to find some cool relics thanks for lookin

Research DOES pay off! And your patience was rewarded Yes My buddy Gerry & I go through the sucky spots, too. We try many, but maybe 1 or 2 out of 10 are really productive. You did good! That tongue is incredible!!! Awesome finds Happy

That is a good story mountaingoat! To have a diary that old is precious in and of itself. Good to see you found the site and made those finds. Somewhere out there men slaved over gold prospecting. You were there to get a real glimpse of it. I love it!!

Real cool stuff Man. It amazes me to think all the stuff we dig up was the new and latest at one time in History and the story of a mining site would be incredible.

others have done it before me so can I
