Placer Mining!

Well, just in case you thought I might not have enough hobbies, I’ve now added placer mining to my list! I bought a Keene Engineering sluice box yesterday in Idaho Springs, CO. We (Paul, Quint, Chris and I) took it up to Chicago Creek and spent an hour or so testing it out, after our introduction to panning at the Argo Mine tour.

We panned until our hands got numb. By the time we went to bed that night, it was down to 20F.
