  • For anyone interested, the Gatesville store in Gatesville Indiana got flooded out and a fund raising site has been set up to help raise money to assist Robin and Doug in the repairs. There is a link below or you can look at it on southern Indiana gold prospectors on Face Book.

  • The Northern Indiana guys are planning an open outing at deer creek campground near Delphi for May 2nd if anybody is interested. I have heard conflicting reports of what the gold is like there but I saw some pictures on facebook recently that made it look pretty good.

  • Randy, we bought loads delivered by a front end loader/backhoe, about a yard each, I was told. You can highbank the beach or dredge the river for less $. There is probably a lot of crumbs left on the beach from guys like us.
