Gold in Serbia
September 2004 by Bozidar ObradovicAs a subscriber to ICMJ, I felt the need to write an article about the auriferous regions in Serbia, which I have been visiting for years in search of gold. The territory in question occupies the central part of the Balkan Peninsula, which transverses the Danube River.
The El Paso Mountains of California are located in the extreme northwestern portion of the Mojave Desert, between Highways 14 and 395, about twenty miles southwest of China Lake. The area is rich in mining history, not far from the great Randsburg district gold mines that are still producing today.
A prospector, who wishes to remain nameless, located the pictured chevron gold specimens on October 29, 2003.
In the August 2000 issue of the Journal, the story of the "Quartszite Area" was most informative and accurate.
There are loads of new gold prospectors attracted by the current high prices, and so I thought it might be a great time to take a look at what makes some prospectors so much more successful than others.
