Dear White's,

A couple weeks ago, I went to see my Daughter and Family in Boise, ID.. Not much for me to do, sense my son-in-law and daughter work. On Sunday my Daughter (Cindy) and I went to Boise basin, where she found an old spoon and I found the Skunk.

On Monday, I was up before day light, and off to the hills and old dredge tailing piles. That day I found 3 pieces of quartz containing gold. All were found with my GMT and Goldmax coil. After crushing the two largest pieces they contained 11.7 dwt.of gold, plus two small specimens, and a piece for Logan, my detecting buddy.

That week I took my granddaughter (Larisa), my grandson (Logan) and my daughter prospecting. What a great week and gold too.
