Nikko’s Nuggets: How A Tech Guy Finds A Steady Supply Of Gold!
February 2024 by Cal Kellogg
During this trip we found enough gold to make us want to come back, even with the punishment of a very long, tough hike.
I am going to break bedrock down a bit and explain my view of the varying scenarios I come across in the field.
My wife Fran and I were brushing and repairing the road to our claim when we were interrupted by a fellow in a pretty yellow Jeep heading out to the local town of Quincy, California.
Part of the good thing about this spot is that it is not that far from my home in the famous Virginia City mining district. Not everyone knows this, but the first discoveries around that area were gold placers.
I have been detecting the area on and off since I discovered it. Every time I bought a new detector it was the first place I went to.
