Flood Plain Gold Deposits—What Are They Really?
November 2017 by Don Robinson
We just completed a trip to another river, and yes, there was definite movement and redistribution of gravels, and other prospectors have seen this as well.
After your excitement peaks when you first receive the high gold assay from the vein you just exposed, you ponder how you will extract and sell your gold. You will need to develop a flow sheet for your process to optimize your recovery and minimize your costs and permit requirements.
The box sat in a hallway and employees began using it for impromptu cricket games, no knowing what it contained.
Even though they have put down thousands of dollars, the buyers often stop paying on their claims part way through the process after they realize they’ve been duped, but the company just sells it again to another buyer.
So why would a modern-day prospector want to learn about a method of mining that was banned by the courts more than a century ago?
Within a few minutes I got my first signal and dug out a small flake about three grains.
Not all of these slides and debris flows will produce results, but if you search for these while prospecting in your gold producing areas, then you can increase your odds of finding new gold.
As I arrived at my detecting location, I got all my gear and headed up the trail. I had to stop and take in the devastation all around me.
