Just Another Ordinary Weekend
March 2015 by Adam HThere was no evidence that anyone else had ever worked this gully with the exception of some old sample piles near the foot of the ravine.
How to go about the entire process of prospecting is a big question. The answer comes down to research and preparation.
Every Spanish village seems to hold their pride in one unique area of expertise. Pamplona has its bulls, Barcelona its architecture, and gold panning belongs to Navelgas.
