Lost Creek Mine meeting

Members met again! Now we know where the gold is!

From Daryl Friesen’s treasure trove comes this nice map said to be: "From the new book Slumach’s Gold.” Though perhaps intended to be included, the map was not used for the 1972 issue of the bestseller. Click on the picture to enlarge it. Thanks Daryl!

As always Brian gave a great rendition of Slumach’s legend to an appreciative audience. Don (r) and Fred (l) tried to keep Brian honest — really not that easy.
