September 2013 by Jim HalloranThe zone of influence of each sample must be carefully considered when deciding how far sample sites should be spaced from each other.
There may be lots of smaller gold I cannot hear with a detector, but it looks just fine in my pan once it is out of the crevice.
It is better in a gem and mineral mining operation that the driller, blaster and mucker be the same person in order to be able to predict placement of the desired mineral enriched pockets.
Representative Paul Shepherd stopped by, and Idaho County Commissioner Jim Chmelik dove with one of the dredgers so he could see for himself that no harm was being done to fish or their habitat.
This fine gold that is so common is probably the most notorious for eluding our riffles and mattings.
These are just some of the ways I have been able to find new spots to metal detect for gold.
When you think about the extremes to which a miner will go to get a little gold, it occurred to me beach gold could be "easy pickings."
