Good afternoon Fellow Prospectors,

Our outing this month was slated for Island Creek, right on Cow Creek just west of Riddle. Trouble is, it's either on fire, or is closed off for the foreseeable future due to fire line restrictions.

                                      There will be no outing on Saturday.

So, Gary Sturgill and Ed Julian are going to go up to Red Mine #9 on Wednesday morning, September 13th, to finish our annual claim cleanup so we meet our obligations for the year. They'll be doing what necessary cleanup there is to be done to begin with, then collecting gold bearing material afterward to take home then heading out. If you need to know where to get the gold on this claim, then here's your opportunity! Meeting time is 8 AM. Take exit 108 into Myrtle Creek off of I-5 and everyone will meet at the Park and Ride area just before the bridge and head up to the claim, which is about 30 minutes outside of town. Bring clippers, rakes, shovels and picks and lend a hand for awhile, and get some paydirt out of the ground. All help is appreciated by the club! I've got to work on Wednesday, so I will see you all at the meeting next month. Thank you!

2017 OUTING SCHEDULE

 

Good evening Fellow Prospectors!

It sure has been a busy summer, and the month of August just flew by! My apologies for not having the newsletter out by the end of August; there were all kinds of things involved in causing significant delays. I won't go into all the reasons why here, but it sure was a bunch of stuff stacked up all at once. All that said, attached is a smaller newsletter than normal, mainly because as far as I know, only one person showed up to the August outing at Red Mine #9, so I don't have a story or pictures for it. As I said last month, I had a previous obligation for the day it was rescheduled to on the 26th (there were a few reasons for that) and then, only one person showed on the 26th, who didn't know where the claim was. I don't know if it was all this terrible forest fire smoke so no one wanted to venture out, or if it was due to a fire up North Myrtle where this claim is near, or if it was the date of the outing being moved, or what.

The Miner's Mall isn't getting any bigger! Submit some stuff you don't want anymore, and put some money in your pocket! And, what accompanies this newsletter (CLICK HERE) is a copy of Kevin Bell's presentation from the last meeting, that gives the month of August more content. The presentation at the last meeting was awesome and informative, even for the seasoned miner, in my opinion. Even though Kevin gave permission for us to print it in our newsletter, I don't possess the technology at this point to merge his PDF into the newsletter, so it is a separate attachment. Check it out! Lastly, our next General Meeting is on Monday, September 11th. I'll send a separate reminder email out, tomorrow evening. And, the Gold Show Committee will be meeting on Sept. 13th. If you want to be on that Committee, let Gary Sturgill know. Until next time, may there always be a flash in your pan!
