I have an work friend that likes to prospect with her husband. In their youth, they would camp out on the American river and dredge all summer (man, thats the life!). One fall they were fixing to leave for the season, and were cleaning up camp. One of their party thought he saw a crushed beer can on the bar, reached down to pick it up, and pulled up a placer nugget very similar to that one. I guess that story proves that they are out there still, just waiting for the right person to come along. As an aside, that same gal had some of the coolest gold nugget jewelry, and she and her husband had big vials full of nuggets, sorted by size.
