Prospecting for Gold at Green Valley
December 2012 by Don RobinsonIn October, five of us decided to take an exploration trip into an area called Green Valley. This was perhaps ten miles upstream from where we had gone in September and the difficulty was access.

The more experienced prospectors know these lesser known spots are the types of places where big finds are still made.
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."

Due to the lockdown, I spent lots of time indoors this spring and I decided to add a drone as a faithful mate in my research.
Looking at the exceptions to the basic rules is sort of an advanced prospecting discussion, but the readers of ICMJs Prospecting and Mining Journal are plenty able to handle it.
