  1. I Was curious to see if anyone has any information on this particular placer area, there seems to be only some anecdotal information available on the internet, and in the prospecting books, and publications I have at my disposal.. Thank you Zippoz
  2. Question for the "rcok hounds"

    as for black sands and the hematite you are talking about, i think you might actually be talking about magnetite. hematite is not magnetic, magnetite is (hence how you can use a magnet to seperate it out of the pan) i do some iron mining (but not much gold mining) so i might be wrong...
  3. so i have a sd2100v2 with a 11 inch mono, i also have a dry washer i have yet to actually use. but i have been searching out by rye patch, dry gultch, american canyon (still waiting on this one) and a few other places, and the most valuable thing i have dug up was a 2006 penny i found in a wash today.... i did also find an outcropping quartz vein which i took a sample from, which im going to drop off at the local assay lab Monday, but really... nothing significant as of yet. tomorrow im hoping to go out for half of the day and dry wash some of the old placer workings, and spend the other part of the day beeping around a few canyons, all south of imlay. if anyone has any advice for me i would really appreciate it. i have a 4WD ford so i can get almost anywhere, also i have a Spot sat messenger, so i hopefully wont get stranded out there. thanks for your help Greg
