Heading for Australia to metal detect for gold. Tips? Suggestions?
Plumas has been historically rich in gold because of its favorable geology. The Melones Fault trends north-south through the county and many rich gold-bearing districts lie along its course.
The very first thing to find out...is if the detector has the ability to be ground balanced.
“JP, is it possible to make a living looking for gold with a metal detector?” I get asked this question a lot...
I have a bunch of ideas about what to do in the near term and then other thoughts about what things might look like a few months from now when I hope the situation will look a lot better.

Once a seam is found it can be traced for miles in either direction. While you are tracing a clay line, you are looking for indicators. The indicators that I look for are ironstone, hematite, different color clays intermingled with the clay line, and a very iron-rich, brown gritty soil.
