Good afternoon, Fellow Prospectors!

Here is your friendly reminder that our monthly outing is this Saturday and the weather looks perfect for it. Everyone will be headed to Red Mine #9.

Take exit 108 into Myrtle Creek off of I-5 and everyone will meet at the Park and Ride area just before the bridge at 8 AM and then head up to the claim. It is about 30 minutes outside of town. There should be water in all the holes up there, so if you want to run some recirculating equipment and run some dirt, this is a great opportunity.

I was just presented this morning with an opportunity to go elk hunting this weekend, and being I need meat in the freezer for the winter, I'm going to take the opportunity. It really is hard to pass on any chance I get to go get that yellow gold, especially the chunky gold on this claim.

If someone going to the Outing could take pictures for the newsletter and get them over to me, I would certainly appreciate it.

I'll be sending an email soon that recaps info for the Christmas dinner coming up that everyone should be aware of, so stay tuned for that.

Until next time, may there always be a flash in your pan!

The outing at Foster Bar was a blast. Everyone who panned found gold. My poorest pan held 9 colors and my best pan held over 200 colors. I found several nice flakes and a few flakes that could be platinum. Several pieces of lead were found ranging in size from 7 1/2 pellet bird shot to 8 ounce pyrimid and round sinkers. A .22 short unfired. A .22 long unfired. 2 quarters, 2 dimes and a foreign coin.

14 people from North Bend Prospectors and 2 people from Douglas County Prospectors showed up. On Saturday night Randy Waters and Barbara Jorge prepared BBQ Chicken and Potato Salad for the potluck.

There was smokes and baked Salmon, salads, breads and Cranberry Bread for dessert. Needless to say, everyone ate until they thought they would blow up.

 

 

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!
