Winter Doldrums Picture Thread

I'm sitting here making a big mistake by surfing gold prospecting sites in the middle of January when nothing much can be done about actually going out and finding the stuff, so I thought we can at least look at pictures of it.

Please post pictures of found gold. Only rule: Picture not previously posted here.

Here's mine:




This was from a trip to the North Fork of the Feather River in California when my kids were small. Found crevicing with hand tools when not kid wrangling.

Note: Break the one rule if you like, just post pictures of gold.

The amount is 90 oz's taken with a dredge. Nearly all the gold was sitting on bedrock. A stretch of creek for some reason left undone... many many holes were punched to find another one...to no avail....
