    Hi Everyone,

    I go by txlizard, lived most of my life in Texas and spent countless hours in the creeks around home looking for fossils. I always loved being outdoors, spent most of my adult life working outside.

    Now I find myself semiretired and want to prospect for gold and new adventures. I looked around, on-line, for a spot in South America and have pretty much decided on Chile. It's pretty hard to find info on small dredging down there though so I'm hoping I can find someone here that has had experience down there or maybe heard of anyone else that has tried their luck there.

    Thanks for reading my post - Ron

    Chile and Argentina are two of my favorite countries that I have visited. Chile is a fantastic place to setup and prospect. Keep us informed of your adventures. Welcome.
