Q: Will my detector react to fine gold?
What are the tell signs of garnet deposits?
We are both very experienced working this type of ground, and we quickly found the pay layer where we would focus our efforts. The bedrock has good gold, but so does the red hard pan.
There were nice sections of vein material at the end of several drifts, like they just stopped work one day and walked away.
At first, I tried to shift things around, but then a hand with a rock would appear, so I would stop trying to adjust my gear and grab the rock to keep things moving.
