Bn Worked Since '62, but are Still Bigi
I he Cow creek and Fine creek placer i
diggings, located about 30 miles from !
Sumpter, have been washed since 1K62,
and are still good producers. The past
season is considered tlie best in their his-'
tory. Anything like an accurate idea of !
the amount of gold taken nut cannot be '
obtained. As one miner expressed It, "I '
never ask any questions regarding the
output ol a claim, as it only induces a
man to prevaricate " Occasionally large
nuggets are found, and the news is not
long in spreading up and down the creek,
acting as a stimulus to tlie others to re
Ihesupplvof water is limited to the
snow waters in tlie spring, and a few
mountain streams ot verv limited How.
Tlie claims ate all opened up separately,
and an ovrrtlow of tailings is not per
mitted Iroin one claim to a lower one,
which Is a shortsighted pulley, and works
a hardship on all. I his is especially true
of pine creek. On Cow creek more
amicable arrangements prevail, and all
work in harmony.
On Fine creek, wh.it are now consid
ered tlie best claims, were located two
years ago. It has always been consld-1
ered that tlie diggings only extended to!
a certain gravel flow, which crossed the
gulch some three miles from the mouth,
as repeated eflorts to find pav dirt above
that point had been made without success, ''
and it was not until the seventh pan

that the fortune tinders were rewarded by
getting three large nuggets, aggregating
about $18 in value. The news caused a
stampede, and tlie upper end of tlie
stream was located in a day, mostly by
new comers. Since then work lias been
prosecuted from one end of the creek to
Some 80 men are employed through
tlie season, which averages about four
mouths. The gold is all coarse, and
many large nuggets are found weighing
as high as $100. The largest nugget,
weighing 5817, was found last season by
Patrick O'Brien, who is fortunate enough
to own most of tlie water available."
