Small Goodies From The Aurora Spoil Piles

For the past few weeks I have been hitting up the Aurora spoil piles trying to find the smaller teeth that you hardly ever come out on trip days into the actual mine.  I also wanted to say to the people that don’t make it into the mine or miss there day due to weather that there is still some hope with the spoil piles.  The teeth that i have up today are just a small amount of what the wife and I have found.  Until next time…..Good hunting!!!!!
