Moore Creek, Alaska—Then and Now
June 2015 by Steve HerschbachThe gold was very chunky and much of it had quartz attached. Even back then I knew that the gold was very close to its source.
In some areas these channels were thousands of feet wide, and just figuring out where you are in some of these diggings is a challenge.
One prime example is an area that I have talked about in many of my articles. This is a very large area and I will actually describe its location again.
Q: Will my detector react to fine gold?
The operation and techniques employed are highly successful in producing free gold with minimal work involved while maintaining an environment protection process through the use of recycled water and a settling pond.
The biggest nugget I have found detecting here was three grams and the following weekend someone found a 9-gram nugget while detecting. Some have even found quarter-ounce nuggets, with one being a chevron nugget.
Rick donned a pair of fiberglass shin guards that he normally wore dredging, just in case he uncovered the rattlesnake during his digging and rock moving. I wasn’t convinced they were going to provide enough protection.
