Ha, I've ALWAYS used two spaces after a full stop! And I'm not about to change either!

True, but it would cost more than the value of gold to get it out, hi hi.

As an aside:
When I first moved down here to TN, I used to go up to the upper creeks and streams to pan for gold.
Learned a lot of secrets before I started, but didn't learn the ropes until I talked to others who were doing well at it.
I studied the methods of those who were making a living at it, and picked the equipment they were using with the best results.
I can say, I did make more than enough to pay for the equipment, including travel time, and working time up there.
I only knew of a couple of places to sell the gold, and learned they were ripping me off big time.
I finally found a guy who did me right, and even showed me how to test my gold before I went to the dealers.
I normally didn't go to the dealers, because he tested it in front of me and paid me only about 10% less than the dealers would.
So we ended up with a good working relationship for a couple of years.
He managed to get a government permit to work higher up in the mountains using much larger equipment and several workers.
I visited him up there only once and saw his operation. It was amazing what they were doing, and after they finished an area, you would never know they were ever there because they put everything back exactly the way it was, minus the gold of course, hi hi.
His long machine basically dug up the creek bed to a depth of about 2 feet, dumping each load on a conveyor that went through several sorting operations. It had at least 8 stages of sorting and separating, and at the end was a conveyor that dumped it all back in the creek and spread it out so it looked like the creek was untouched at the back of the machine.
He did tell me that about 15 to 20% of the fine gold dust washed through the machine and ended up back in the creek. The labor to filter out that fine gold was more than it was worth with what they were getting from the front end.
When he reached the limit of his permit, they took the machine apart into several sections and moved it to somewhere else he managed to get a permit for. I never saw him again after they moved out of where they were working, but did hear about him from time to time, and usually not very nice things from the gold panners, hi hi.

I had a cousin who dug up most of his dad's back yard, in Colorado, looking for gold. Never found any, hi hi.
