RE: I feel so alive. Chase and status. Gold meeting wild dog. And crazy times.

If you look at thediggings.com there is an insane number of claims in Nevada but so many are listed closed. I've been trying to research the old mines north of me but the info is a bit hard to come by. I've found a usgs map site that has mining claim activity on federal lands but I will probably have to go to the BLM office in town to find out more.

Look up the Ruby mine. I got scammed into finding a massive Galena and bismuth mine.

However there was actually quite a bit of tailing piles that were never tested.

I definitely wouldn't go inside of it and you have to check out who owns it at this current moment.

And actually the diggings is an invaluable resource for me to look up quite a bit of information about historical minds and during my planning for the Alaska trip that's what I relied on for the planning.

It is pretty amazing how many different mines you can locate.

We have LOTS of galena in this area. The courthouse in Colville has a big display that has more than 30 differently named samples of Galena. While I was waiting out front of the courthouse for my buddy to get his boat licensed I got to talking with a guy who told me of Rhodium on the surface of a mountain in northern Idaho. I am doing regualar research on the area trying to find it on the satellite images. At $26k/ounce I think my time is well spent in the research.
