Back to the Drawing Board
July 24, 2012 The weather is a bust, and the pot is still devoid of that amber colored metal we all so love. However, the team is constantly brainstorming any flaws in Goldenrod that they've detected while dredging. And, August 1st is not yet upon us. Rocks and other organic seafloor debris clogging suction hoses. First, the team needs to see what they are suctioning, then the suction hoses need to remain unclogged and able to deliver seafloor contents to sluice boxes. Then, said sluice boxes have to agitate said seafloor contents just at the right elevation and with the correct vibration to discard lightweights and waste to collect the gold in the bottom. Tommy is literally back to the drawing board and will have this thing licked! If at first you don't succeed, try again, again and again.
