Update:  Although this site has been worked over quite well, fossickers are still finding gems.  Met one couple in May 2007 who showed me their finds - photo cannister three quarters full of small gems (blue sapphire, red and honey zircon) - the best stone being a 6.2 carat well-formed dog tooth sapphire crystal.
