    Somevere on forum its my finds from past days. I once strike dicent hoard of silver roman denarus and antoninianus coins, and also find one extremly rare gold roman coin, but its has hole for some idiot carry it around neck, and that kills his hudge numismatic value. Here in Serbia its good situation abouth corona, not to beluve but we are second in whole Europe by nummber of people geth anti-corona cure per number of poppulation.

    Yes I saw a few pictures back when you posted them, I thought to myself, how odd to see another Serb  on this forum!! Yes i read that they have all 4 vaccines for Korona, Chinese, Russian, American not sure whos else. This is all good and I am aware we can fly form the U.S. without problems..

  3. Like so many places  the big gold unfortunately has been mined out long ago as it was in many areas of the world, but I am sure there are some left and only the locals know where to look. That A52 is a nice top of the line sluice box, sorry to hear the bad news, it happens over here also more then you think. I was in Serbia in 2019 , was going to come this year but do to Covid I may hold off until 2022, a sluice you may consider is the large foldable sluice box, nice an compact. Keene and Royal makes them and both are very well made sluices. A story about Roman sites and coins, before we moved to the States, my parents sold our house to a family , the husband would go to some local Roman sites after the rains, he would just walk around and pick them up! This was in the late 70's 80's imagine having a detector back then. He had many coins to fill a collection book 3-4 inches thick and many were silver and a few in gold. The history is thick in the Balkans and detecting those grounds would be a thrill I may take you up on that one day. We has such a great time in 2019 I am looking forward to heading back soon, if not this summer for sure next. Have a good day Slobo.

    Miro, now i see where its valpovo. Its near Drava river. Do you know drava its also gold bearing river, but most of it its flour gold wery small in size

       Yes I used to swim in it as a kid lol....the Drava River is gold bering but flour gold only, a few people are highbanking the benches and beaches. I am interested to

      know if the Kucevo area near Majdanpek has bigger gold or nuggets? I know and heard stories form my uncle who worked there for a while that it was very rich.

     His job was to document the goings of the ore dump trucks, he told me once a fist size piece of ore fell out and it was laced with gold all over. So there must be

    some good nuggets in the local streams and gullies in those mountains. The history of mining in this region goes back several thousand years, when it was part of Rome of course they continued on with mining as this was a major silver/gold source during the Roman Empire. Huge mounds of slag are still present in the region left from thousands of years of processing ores. Any way i hope to visit the area next year and do some exploring. I have family in Novi Sad, Batajnica and Beograd. My goal is to add a few gold specimens /nuggets from Serbia.

  5. Sure Slobo, I was wondering if you can attempt to try and make a sluice box, its fairly simple. I have made a few myself with simple boards, scrap metals, and such things. Having aluminum is not necessary , you can find simple plans on the internet that will have simple instructions how to make a sluice box. Some cut lumber , nails,  find some scrap metal and  you will be in business. I am from a small town near Valpovo, but have not lived there for many , many years. Just tryng to give you a few ideas....I know you can do it

    He's much better than the idiot we had previously.

    Time will tell...as an Independent I do not vote for the party...the party better win me over with protecting our interests first. But then again  " my interest may not correlate with yours. And this is the core of the problem, whose interests will Biden serve? Again time will tell. With as much diverse peoples that live here, and division any leader is set up for failure. I suppose we can always move and become American diaspora in another nation.

    One possibility is the data given on usgs website was taken before accurate longitude and latitude readings became readily available. These days just about any good gps unit will give accurate information. That same data may not have been available when the mine was originally listed.

    I am beginning to think the same, seems like these coordinates on this site are way off by at least a quarter mile if not more. 

  8. After reading the Mindata info on locations I  understand why they are not accurate

    Map Location Accuracy: The coordinates listed for many locations are general regional coordinates (not accurate) and should not be relied upon for locating localities (eg with a GPS).

    Map Scales: The maps scales shown below may be the scales of the original map data (eg 1:50000 Landranger Maps) and NOT the scale as they may appear on your screen. Not all map scales listed below may be available for every location, in some cases links may default to another scale - there may be only one scale available for some places. Many sites may share same data, but you can choose which you prefer to use.
