When you think about the extremes to which a miner will go to get a little gold, it occurred to me beach gold could be "easy pickings."
People always ask me what is so important about locating contact zones. The answer to that: Gold.
…early last fall, I found my first gold-rich patch along a few crevices in the same river and found five grams of gold nuggets in one outing.
Every year I go through this and every year it becomes more difficult to find new territory that is available for us to prospect. Is there anywhere that hasn’t been worked?
One prime example is an area that I have talked about in many of my articles. This is a very large area and I will actually describe its location again.
Joy was written on his face, holding up the nugget—his first ever nugget—that he and his grandpa dug up together.
