Is It Time for a Change? New Ways to Find More Gold
October 2017 by Chris Ralph
The old report I read indicated all they ever did was dig some trenches and take samples. It sounded to me like a good place to take my metal detector...
A treasure-seeking young man whose name will forever remain anonymous made the months-long journey either over land or by sailing ship to California after word spread about the gold strike in 1849.
I picked up a noticeably heavy, fist-sized chunk of what I thought was a heavy piece of iron. After wiping some of the dirt and clay off, I still didn't know what on earth this object was.
…the “One More Time” has turned into three more trips and each of the three has yielded more gold each time down.
…what adjustment can I make to my dredge that will enhance its gold-catching ability?
I decided to dig near it to see if there were any more and immediately uncovered others. In total I found a pocket with over 100 crystals in it. I was hooked.
