New to gold mining, he was excited to help us on our claim.

Driving in the little Kubota excavator.

Duke was there to help debug the new Green Machine.

And I needed advise then.

Besides seeing what came out of the drywasher he had the

thrill of digging nuggets.

Experiencing the excitement as they get louder and louder as you get closer and closer.

Duke we will miss you this season and future seasons at the claim.
