My wife Ann and I moved three years ago to the Pueblo of Arivechi, Sonora, in order to be near the mining concessions we owned and to build a precious metals concentrating mill.

Gold on the bedrock is a good rule of thumb, but not one that is 100 percent effective. There are plenty of exceptions. So, how does a prospector recognize those exceptions?
In this case, signs of gold were found at the bottom of the alluvial and then traced in a triangle up the face of the mountain until they stopped—that is where the digging began.
