All About Lead Minerals, Silver and Gold
May 2020 by Chris Ralph
Many miners know that lead is very commonly associated with silver values, but the truth is that it is also associated with gold values in many locations as well.
In this article, I am going to take a look at three Midwest states and go through some of the prime places for prospectors to find nice local gold there.
I knew the nuggets got into the nugget patch somehow, I just had to figure out how and from what direction they came.
The mine site consists of river gravels from an ancient channel covering over 20 acres, and the place is covered with very large river rock and small tree overgrowth.
Some will doubt its value given the ultra-fine particle size… Some will become encouraged about not having to incur significant time and expense to break rock.

Now that you are actually going to be out there doing some prospecting, I may be able to help.
When you approach a location, even if you've been there before, you should consider all the factors and conditions present at the site. This includes both natural and man-made factors.
