Prospecting Adventures—Pure Gold
June 2008 by Jim PressleyI often wonder if I would have felt the same about gold prospecting if my father had introduced me to it at a young age. Would I have the same passion and fascination that I do now? How much further along the learning curve would I be if...
Alaska is getting a lot of interest these days, not least because of all the gold prospecting shows on television. Hardly a month seems to pass without some new prospecting show being announced, and a couple of the most popular feature Alaska.
It would seem that we are often indeed destined to repeat history. In terms of gold discovery, even with all the advancements that have been made over the years, it seems we are once again on the cusp of returning to the 1800s world of gold mining. Even as you read this, a new gold rush is taking place in a sleepy little town in South Carolina.
The fire started early October 4, destroying the Bureau of Land Management office on the edge of town within minutes.

Gold can show up in unexpected places at times, so I don’t like to tell people where not to look. An exception is where the gold is likely to be very deep.
