Good evening, my name is Mike Lewis. My wife and I are prospectors from Sandpoint, ID. We don’t have much gold in this area due to a massive ice dam that melted and washed all of the gold south from the area. We spend most of our time on Libby Creek on Forest service land. The old GPAA claim was not renewed last year. That being said we managed to pull out a little over 5 grams last year. What we discovered was that the old miners tailing piles are full of large pieces of flake gold. We did manage to find a small picker a little less than a gram. We typically do day trips because it is only about 1 1/2 hours drive from home. This year I am hoping to do some camping this year. I hope to do a little more testing and scouting this year up on top. I hear the gold is chunky the higher you go. Anyway here is a few pics from our expeditions and gold hunting adventures. Hope you all have a wonderful gold season. May you pans and sluices be full.
