View Full Version : Blueberry Knob gold discovery,

09-05-2012, 09:41 PM
We had an awesome time this year with making 2 new discoveries. Setting aside all the rain and wind.
Our new Blueberry Knob has quartz in place with free gold. The Yellow Ribbon is the first time we have actually seen gold on the shovel. Next year will follow the shear zone.

1st, Blueberry Knob,
2nd, Yellow Ribbon.
3rd, Yellow Ribbon.
4th, Gold from Yellow Ribbon.
5th, the ore taken out of Yellow Ribbon.

Couldn't happen to a nicer person! Congratulations! :)

Is the gold "free" as you dig or... do you crush and then pan? There could be more free gold locked in the matrix.

It is free as we dig. Its seems the deeper we go the more that is attached to the quartz. Looking at the quartz there is gold on it. I did crush and pan and very nice gold. It really amazes me that this is right on the surface.

Neat stuff!
Your ore samples on the screen almost look like some type of breccia.
Thanks for posting those photos! Always educational.

Michelle ,
Could you post an updated map with this Summer's exploration upon it?

I have a new scanner coming. I do have a map on line, let me play with it and I will get back to you.

Hard rock is hard work, but you are right, it has its dividends. Thank you

The gold bearing ore that we have collected from different areas in Grubstake seem to have similarity. Could all the areas we are prospecting be some how tied together? I do have a new scanner coming and will post a photo of the area. The Blueberry we know is an extension of the Wheeler and not to far from the Spains Vein. I have also collected samples from each discovery and will send them in to Chemex.

Yes they could be related. The structure map that full metals drew for you is incorrect in my opinion.
Are your vein within the foliation of the schist or cross cutting the schist?

09-18-2012, 12:49 PM
They are within the pelitic schists. Thanks Bill.
