Sulfides and Intergrain Gold Wire Nuggets
March 2018 by Bilbo Kringle
...these nuggets have not traveled far from the lode because the golden wire lattices would have been torn apart or flattened during weathering of rock and deposition by violent stream action.
All locations gave up some gold, but one particular section of exposed bedrock with steep, packed crevices kept giving us good, consistent results. We had found our spot.
The only thing that saved me was talking to a local miner who gave me a “heads up” that private individuals owned all the mineral rights in that section.
Their rewards were far better than they had anticipated, resulting in one of the best clean-ups they had ever seen.
This article is intended to try to help someone who is breaking into gold detecting and using a pulse induction (PI) detector.
Normally we do not cover gem and mineral shows, but this one is a little different. The Tucson (Arizona) Gem and Mineral show is the sales source for so many small mining operations, I felt I had to address this show and its possibilities for the small miner.
Depth is not an issue unless the site is thoroughly cleaned of shallow trash, and it is far easier to isolate and remove targets using a small coil in a target rich location.
Can a metal detector be used to find limonitic gossan material?
