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...
As I planned for my trips, I concentrated on how to lighten my pack yet still carry enough gear to make the trip productive and enjoyable.
It was one of those awkward situations as we walked, fatigued and too thirsty to speak a word.
My girlfriend Beth and I decided to take our canoe down the Yukon and do some gold dredging...
Some creeks have nuggets, while others, particulary the rivers, nothing but fine gold.
As a guide to those who are thinking of taking up this activity or those who currently practice this trade, I have created a listing of the primary tools and equipment I use when nugget hunting.
Some will doubt its value given the ultra-fine particle size… Some will become encouraged about not having to incur significant time and expense to break rock.
