less than 20 min from the toll to 101. bay bridge wb 80 is less then 30 min from the maze to sf. . ( james @ landing ) there is a new gold rush in california and you can thank mother nature. going in depth this morning... the heavy rains that brought an end to the drought has given way to gold fever in the sierra foothills.
4:17 am
john shrable reports there is gold in the hills just waiting to be unearthed. they are the sounds that have been heard up and down the course of this river for over a hundred years. hidden beneath these rapids, between these rocks, lay the hopes of fortune that drew those with a dream across thousands of miles more than a century ago, to the western frontier that was california. california's highway 49... named after the 49er's as these early prospectors became known... begins in oakhurst, just down the road from this gold mining claim along the fresno river.just talk to mark white for a few minutes and you'll get the idea. he's the president of the central valley prospectors, a fresno based group of people with one thing in common; after their day jobs are done, gold fever kicks in.< mark white/central valley prospectors: "look
4:18 am
right here, you've got rocks.">for mark, gold is in his blood.his dad, after spending one summer in alaska, had the inside scoop from a local about the place to strike it rich- pulling out 72 pounds of gold, in just a few short months.mark invited us to join them in the hunt at the group's claim,the rugged foothills of madera county...< "that's gold! >and these weekend prospectors seem to have an extra shimmer in their eyes this year... saying it could be the beginnings of a new california gold rush...< mark white/ central valley prospectors: "so when this big water comes through it's going to move it all back down to the places they found it originally, and you could be first!">
4:19 am
that boulder, so it's going to break those boulders loose and break that gold loose that's been hiding underneath there for years.">< mark white/ central valley prospectors: "all the water is pressing within the cracks and knocking stuff loose as it flows.">as it turns out, this year's drought busting rain and snow has not just filled our reservoirs, but could also fill your wallet.and a lot patience. the challenge of finding what may just be a few flakes of gold, if any at all, after hours of work is part of the appeal for prospectors like bob, angie, and mark.< mark white/ central valley prospectors: "everything that glitters(pause) is not gold tarzan.">it takes a keyed eye during every step of the process< mark white/ central valley prospectors: "so you've rinsed all this but you've still got to view it cause every now and then there's a piece that doesn't fit through the screen and into your bucket.">hours of set-updigging through mounds of dirt all for that eureka moment.< mark white/ central valley prospectors: "that little siren goes off in your head when you find it, and gold fever starts right after that.">all as just a hobby< angie paul/prospector: "you
4:20 am
see it?" > < angie paul/prospector: "we found two big good sized nuggets i guess you could say, and he made me earrings out of it.">and just like his father, for mark, it's more than just about the crisp mountain air, but that lingering idea that maybe, just maybe, it could be him that cashes in on the next big nugget, that keeps him coming back. ( james ) at today's rate.. gold is priced at more than 12-hundred dollars an ounce. and that prospector who said his dad unearthed 72 pounds of gold? we did the math. at today's prices that would be worth 1-point-4 million dollars. ( james ) north korea now says it has the capabilities to attach a nuclear warhead to a missile that can reach the united states. the united nations security council is holding emergency meetings this week to discuss north korea's latest missile test. the country tested a missile yesterday. japan says the missile landed in water between north korea and japan's west coast. the launch comes two weeks after north korea tested a ballistic
