I like to do whatever I can on my own – including the manufacture of what I need. There is nothing wrong with going to a retail mining store for what you want, but if you would like to try it on your own try building a dry washer. You’ll need plans, of course. There are sites where you can pay for plans. But I have found a place on the Internet where there is an explanation of the use of the dry washer along with photos and rough plan that one could use to build a good dry washer.
Having just gotten my first dry washer I can attest to the fact that you will process more material, and hence, get more gold flake. Don’t forget to metal detect those piles of material the dry washer leaves behind. There’s nuggets in them piles! (Sometimes:) Click below to see.
Marigolds and Petunias in the Morning
One of my favorite activities is looking at my flowers early in the morning with a nice, hot cup of coffee.Occasionally, a hummingbird will fly by, but the bird activity starts up a little later. They’re still snuggled in a nest somewhere, I am sure. This photo was taken in July, and without understating the fact, it is one of the hottest month’s in Arizona. So living outside the Phoenix metro area gives me some relief from the heat early in the morning.
Flowers sure do have the power to help determine the direction a day will take.
This photo was taken about half way between Apache Junction and Superior, Arizona.
Yesterday, my wife and I came back from a routine shopping adventure in Globe, Arizona. Our trip to Wal-Mart was uneventful. As we came out of the mountains down to Superior, Arizona, this is what we saw.
