Prospecting My Way Across Australia Pt I
October 2010 by Fred MasonAfter contributing to the total, I am proud to claim my share of Ray’s patch. In total, we got almost an ounce of gold from the schist where it seems to have been formed.

I have been detecting the area on and off since I discovered it. Every time I bought a new detector it was the first place I went to.
Gold dredgers were enlisted in an effort to salvage a rare stretch of chum salmon spawning grounds along the Columbia River between Vancouver, Washington, and Portland, Oregon.
The hope was that a bit of the gold from that famous old pocket mine had worked its way down the slope of the hill and into the gravels Pat and his crew were planning to mine.
The black sand was loaded with mercury from the river, but there wasn’t enough to pick up all the fines. We took out the amalgam and had to suction up the remaining fine gold.
What I hope to do here is to give you some information that will help you, the reader, pick out locations that will be better for you to detect and give you a possibility of finding gold.
