Do this thing annually. They actually pulled in some bucks last year when they found some nuggets. They sold the nuggets to collectors for more than the value of the gold.
My friend who's going up with them this month said they claim to have found an un-shifted hole. They found some old square nails etc. on the riverbed.
The thing that shocked me was how much weight these guys wear - 70-90 lbs!!! They claim that they need that much to stay rock solid on the bottom. They've also been using surface supplied air with no backup. My buddy's in was to set them up with ponies as bailout bottles.
