John Griffin found this smokey quartz crystal while prospecting at Long's. The crystal is terminated on both ends. Nice find, John!

    

Tom Massie dredged up these little flakes from the Llano river. There were about 10 of these in the pan. This material was at the first catch in the dredge, no telling how much fine gold was in the rest of the cons.

    

This gold and garnet was found by Clinton Bihm at Long's. He was digging under a rock in the Llano river close to the mouth of Pennington Creek. A very nice find!

This vial of gold was found by William, Kyle and Michael at Long's. They used a metal detector to locate a concentration of black sand. When they got home, they panned out the material and this is what they found.

 

 

    

More gold from the Hudkins Property. Daniel Klepac collected this gold using his highbanker, which he designed and built himself.

 

 

    

This gold was collected from a common operation at the Hudkins Property outing. Many prospectors contributed their cons and this gold was raffled to one lucky winner. The main creek on the Hudkins Property drains from the Babyhead District just north of the city of Llano.

 

 

    

Joseph F. found these nuggets while dredging in the Guadalupe river near Kerrville. This is an unusual find for Texas, nevertheless, that is some awesome gold!

 

 

    

    

This gold was found by Rob Goreham while dredging at Long's in the main river. Rob now lives in California and runs dredging tours. His business is called "49er Mining Supplies" and there is a link to his site on our "Links" page.    

 

 

 

        

Check out that nice pile of chunky gold. Randy Asterman of San Antonio accumulated most of this gold by grinding rock from Long's. He used a home-made rock grinder he designed and built. Randy is currently working up a free PDF version of his plans and will be available soon.
