Trash! A Hindrance Or Hot Spot For Hidden Gold?
March 2018 by Ray Mills
I love it when I am in the middle of a high trash area and all the ferrous bars go away, the screen number goes to a three or an eight, and the meter is forty to a hundred. I don’t know for sure that I have found gold, but it narrows the odds down.
…the “One More Time” has turned into three more trips and each of the three has yielded more gold each time down.
The first experience involved an overgrown gold mine operated during the 1880s. A razed mill adjoined the mine and could be glimpsed from the isolated public dirt road I was traveling.
The names attached to these areas came about from many sources. Many are easy to see why the name was given while others had a more contrasting note to them.
Today it is getting tougher and tougher to find a place to prospect. There is one significant haven left for the small miner...
It is better in a gem and mineral mining operation that the driller, blaster and mucker be the same person in order to be able to predict placement of the desired mineral enriched pockets.
The first thing a person should do is seriously consider whether they want to go mining as a hobby or a business, and the tax implications of the choice.
As we walked back we were just reaching the point of where the faulting should be and there, covered with deep grass, was very faint evidence of an old road going up the mountainside! What was that old road doing there?
