June 2008 Dig

Our June 2008 dig on Petersen Mountain was a big success.  Here are some highlights from the trip.  Click on any picture in order to see a larger view.

Access Road


It takes a little work to get to the Krystal Tips Mining claim at the top of Petersen Mountain.  The picture to the left gives just a little glimpse of a portion of the access road.  You don't even want to think about trying it without a four-wheel drive.  Even then, it can be a little tricky for those who aren't used to the climb.  Can you imagine trying to drive a track hoe up that road?

Track Hoe

Well, here's proof that it can be done!  Eric and Krystal plan out some reclamation work (right) while the others continue to dig (below).


Crystal Pocket

This pocket looks like it might be promising.  Look at the size of that crystal!

Another Pocket

Paul and Joe work in another rich pocket.


After over a week on Petersen Mountain, it's time to bring the crystals home, unwrap them, and see what we've got.  Noel, Foster, and Joe (pictured from left to right) start tearing into the "presents" from the mountain.

All These Crystals

Now, that's a lot of crystals.
