Default mining camp

well i've been working on a plan for a while i have a gold claim i'm planning on develiping into a tourist trap.As a family we will be goinng out tonight to start setting up for exploration and i plan on taking a camara with me the trip in is 17 miles of high terrain than dropping down in to the flambeau river drainage. should be a fun trip i had minime out wendsday with me when i took out some gear he has already picked out his swimming hole. my first stage will be brushing the trail with a weed eater to get it wide enough for the snow trac or the jeep to get down or just to keep me dry when riding quads, running through the willows when rain soaked will get you wet.

pics will come on monday as for the map go to google earth and do a search on hazel creek or flambeau river. just remember i havn't determined weather there is any gold there yet i will say, i took some samples and found fine flood gold in the first shovel full.i have a guy comming out with some kind of $7000.00 detector that is suposed to tell me what is under the ground I havn't seen it yet most of those i have seen just find magnetic anomonlys that indicate the presence of mineral concentrations the good part about this is it will show me where to drill test holes first.

Great pics Don, thanks for sharing. The one thing i enjoy is no fences, powerlines or anything else that takes away from such beautiful scenery.

i have another creek on the same claim i believe will be more conducive to dredging as it runs accross a bedrock outcropping. both are covered in hugh will stands and the willows will have to go i'm not planning on doing any dredging i'm after the tourist buisness a little pick and shovel work up in the benches that were not worked in the 1900's as they were still frozen then up here there are a lot of old claims now days being re worked as they were frozen during the first gold rush
