Mojave Desert Heritage & Culture Association (MDHCA) panning booth trip, April 23, 2022: This was the first time we set up a Panning Booth at this location. I want to thank all the volunteers that made this happen! Jim and Woody arrived at the MDHCA site Friday and the rest of us showed up at Saturday morning. We had the museum and the Panning Booth set up and had our first future miners panning around 11:15. We also had some time to enjoy demonstrations on most of the old mining equipment and at the blacksmith shop. Throughout the afternoon we had folks stopping by, panning and enjoying Tom’s Museum and great conversation.
On 2-19-2022 we drove out to the "New Dale City" site which was a Gold Mining Settlement that was active from 1984 to about 1917. This is near 29 Palms, California in the Historic Dale Gold Mining District.
