Salmon River Gold


Here is .6 grams of Salmon River Gold recovered from just 6 gallons of raw material from behind a large boulder on May 16, 2009.
Tom Allison showed us this spot and after seeing my cleanup, I immediately put in for a supplemental dredge permit to work the Salmon River this summer.
We happen to hit this spot while the water was relatively low, compared to the near flood stage that exists now. Looks like it will be a while before we return. I'm watching the Salmon River gage height and flow rate at this website:
