If you want to join the group, figure how long it will take for you to get to Searchlight. Get there early if you want to eat. The cost is 
$20/bucket tailing. NO directions published to the mine from Searchlight. Tom B added this is the “Lost River of Gold” mine. Two Wheel Drive okay, but we will need to walk up to the top area of the mine, as the road has washed up. NOTE: You are NOT 
allowed to the mine on your own! Our club and the Havasu club are the only clubs even invited as a group. Bring your lunch, 
water, digging tools, walking sticks and a bucket. Approx. 1 hour drive from Kingman to Searchlight. We will stop for 5 minutes one the way to the mine to point out purple granite dig spot that could visit on your way back.
