A Trip Down the Yukon River
April 2013 by C.A. "Charlie" CookMy girlfriend Beth and I decided to take our canoe down the Yukon and do some gold dredging...
Every Spanish village seems to hold their pride in one unique area of expertise. Pamplona has its bulls, Barcelona its architecture, and gold panning belongs to Navelgas.
…it was immediately evident the previous owner had not been using a detector. During just a few months of working the dumps part-time, he recovered gold in quartz specimens valued in excess of $40,000.
“JP, is it possible to make a living looking for gold with a metal detector?” I get asked this question a lot...
I had never run an impact mill before, but anything involving rocks, water and a big electric motor sounded great.
Steve got his first nugget within minutes of turning on his metal detector. It only took me about an hour to find my first piece.
There are a few questions you will need to ask yourself before you apply for a suction dredge permit from the State Water Resources Control Board.
Some experienced panners with the vigor and longevity to spend a full day panning in the small creeks and ravines can possibly find as much as a gram or more on a good day.
