The Essence of Gold Prospecting
July 2016 by Chris RalphWhen doing your initial armchair research and selecting potential areas to explore, consider all the indicators, both natural and man-made.
I had been busy representing the Prospecting and Mining Journal this spring, but prospecting season finally arrived and I’ve been out digging for nuggets—I’ve even found a few. I know a number of prospectors who are armed with new metal detectors and headed to the hills to look for that precious yellow stuff.
To add to the confusion, the dam wasn’t holding back a large amount of water. It was full of gravels and had a small creek running through it. I had to know more.
Fortunately, there are products on the market that can address these problems and make a small-scale mining operation feasible.
