Gold Prospecting in Gatesville, Indiana
May 2014 by Alex DolbeareGatesville is not the only place to find easy public access for gold prospecting opportunities in Central Indiana.
Picking the right spot to placer has to do with years of experience, and a little luck. The textbooks can tell you where it should be, but sometimes the rules just don’t seem to apply.
I frequently get asked, "What should I look for when I am out prospecting that will tell me there are good amounts of gold present in the ground?"
The most commonly asked question in metal detecting is, “Which metal detector should I get?” People worry a lot about not getting the right machine. They do not want to waste their money and their time with the wrong metal detector.
I detect in a wide array of situations. I like to search for places that no one has been to. I really like to find areas that have never been worked at all.
I am learning more about gold deposition in this area than I knew previously. I am passing this information on with the hope that many of you will be able to locate patches and lines a little easier in the future because of this article.
...even the best prospectors have times when they do not find gold. It is all about taking chances against tough odds and succeeding.
Some ask if a prospector can collect an entire ounce in a day. It is possible; I’ve done it before.
