  1. Thanks everyone for the great info. The old shaft at the top of the ridge is a hand dug tunnel. The other mine was worked with modern techniques, but because I know absolutely nothing about gold mining I don't know what methods were used.

  3. Hello everyone, I am a brand new member of this forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I live in Southern utah, about six miles from the Arizona border of Mohave County AZ.

I have been metal detecting with a Silver uMax for about a year now, but I wanted to try gold since I live so close to Arizona. Thanks everyone, Delano1981
