Out of the Ashes—New Access to Gold
November 2018 by Ray Mills
As I arrived at my detecting location, I got all my gear and headed up the trail. I had to stop and take in the devastation all around me.
This was two days of gold panning, with just over 250 gold panners trying to win a medal to show they were one of the best of the best.
We soon found that our discovery post and other claim markers were gone and replaced with new posts and a notice of location with an earlier date than had been on our notice of location.
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.
Doubters be informed, yes, there is gold in Africa—lots of gold—and all the good and bad that comes with it.
...your sampling procedures should not be designed to catch gold your mining technique will never recover.
Back at our campsite, while the rest of us grabbed a late four o’clock lunch, Fallyn volunteered to do the clean-up panning.
