Old Rusty gold rush tools


#1

If i remember there was a section for old stuff like this. I picked this up in the Left hand branch creek joining Blackball creek not far from the old Croesus battery site. I see a lot of blood sweet and tears and skinned knuckles when looking at this hand rock drill tool, approx date 1890s.

Great relics to have…I love it and a great find. On my place we commonly find picks, shovels and the odd fork for removing stones and occasionally spades

Pretty sweet relic. Ever find any pans or do you think they’ve all rusted away?
