Gold in the First Pan
September 2002 by John AndersonLeon has a reputation of seeing more snakes than most other gold miners. The fire red and yellow concentric rings of the mountain king snake looked especially bright in the morning sun as it lay motionless on black rock. Leon touched it with a stick, but the cold snake moved only a little.

There are several counties around Shasta County that offer very good gold detecting. Many of these locations are old hydraulic pits. While detecting these old pits over the years I have come up with some ideas on how to go about hunting them.
A bill that would relax current standards on small mines has passed a House committee.
Over the years, I’ve proved to myself over and over again that I don’t have to wait many weeks after rains before I head out to the goldfields to do some gold digging.

Is it environmental concern that's driving mining out of the United States or rather politics on the grandest scale?
Senator Richard Bryan (D-NV) is assuring gold producers in Nevada and around the world that Congress will block the Clinton administration's attempt to sell off international gold reserves to help some debt-laden poor countries.
