21st Century American Gold Rush: Rare Earth Elements
January 2020 by Ron Kliewer
The burning question I needed answered was why didn’t the deposit ever get mined of at least one of the valuable minerals? A couple of reasons have come to light.
The first pieces found were in a spot that most gold hunters would not even detect, right in the middle of a downslope meadow.
...more folks rolled in on Saturday morning and many were eager to venture out onto the Sleepy Bear property—all 415 acres—and try their luck at finding some gold.
I have been detecting the area on and off since I discovered it. Every time I bought a new detector it was the first place I went to.
I had some success following this premise this summer, finding a few nuggets in places I think I overlooked in the past.
Doubters be informed, yes, there is gold in Africa—lots of gold—and all the good and bad that comes with it.
Much more information can be gained from that single source and gives you ideas on the gravels for dry washing or where the nuggets may lie for metal detecting
I figured it would be quite conservative of me to shoot for about four ounces of gold instead of the twelve ounces I had found in 2013.
