  1. Tim’s 2021 North Yuba River Nugget Hunt Click here to view video The tribe has gathered for another year at the Third annual Tim's North Yuba River Nugget Hunt . The Weather was warm and the water was refreshing as the Prospectors searched for that elusive Gold. The River was a bit lower this year so it exposed new areas to work. as Todd aka "Topcat" has often declared "It's not all about the gold." it's the people we share this day with that make it so much fun for everyone. Follow along our journey into the happenings of Saturday July 24th 2021 at Tim's 2021 North Yuba River Nugget Hunt !!! There were many prospectors in attendance and I know I didn't get pictures or Video of everyone as they came and went thoughtout the day. There were plenty of Metal detector's running and Gold Pan's a panning and even a few sluice boxes running and showing that Yuba Gold dancing in the riffles. it was a great time spending the day in the Mother lode with friends old and new, finding Gold and sharing stories it's a shame we only do this once a year !!!!! Guess who found the most Gold this year ???? and the Biggest Nugget ???? This year we Gathered together at the end of the day to see who would Win 3 Grams of Tim's Gold. To see who won you will have to watch Tim's Video @blueleadgoldproductions
  2. Panning for Gold on the Yuba River Click Here to View We head to Mother Yuba in search of Gold and piece of mind !!!! My goal for the trip was to find a couple of spots where the Gold has gathered during high water. ( flood Gold ) A Nugget would be great a Picker would be Good but just being out on the River with the family as they Fish was the real payoff !!! Well that and the Ice Cream we got in Downieville SG 042
  3. this sounds like fun maybe me and Gary will head over and try that spot out !!!!
  4. Click to View video Can I beat @Two Toes with his own Metal Detector ? We head back to finish off a few spots we left from our last trip out. Gary found some good gravel so he decided to run it though his Sluice box while I was happy to use his Minelab SDC 2300 while he was busy sluicing !!!! Those targets that we left sure paid off !!! nothing like hearing a good sounding target sitting on bedrock . SG 041
  5. Moving Boulders to find more Gold Nuggets Click Here to View Video We return to move a boulder that's been keeping me awake at night just thinking about what might be underneath it. This boulder is sitting on Bedrock just above the main flow of the river so it could be loaded with Gold !!!! I worked the crevice around it and pulled out a couple pickers and a lot of lead so lets see whats under that boulder. Detectors used Minelab SDC 2300 and the White's Gold Master V-Sat . SG 040

Hope you enjoy the video. SG 038
