Route Planning Using GPS
January 2019 by Peter Gleba
My intention was to end this discussion with waypoints and routes, then I found USGS maps of the Plainfield Quadrangle.
When everything is still dry, one of my favorite methods of prospecting is using a straw to blow out small cracks and crevices that dot the exposed bedrock along a stream.
Over the years, I've noticed a pattern in the type of rocks associated with the best gold deposits in Midwestern glacial gravel.
When we got set up and I started to swing the coil over a small mound, I got a good signal, faint but repeatable.
It all occurred when Gus and I returned to a remote placer gold area where we had previously found really good gold. The problem was that it would take about an hour to walk through the desert to get to it.
