Welcome to the Forum! Have you ever found any gold in WI?

Yes I do find gold in Wisconsin.

There is some silver and Diamonds. Here is a link to some documentation.

Kimberlites

There is some interesting geological features buried under all the glacial till.

Wisconsin is a rock hounds paradise. I stop and pick up samples every where I go.

Thanks for the very informative summary of diamonds found in Wisconsin. My boyhood and early teenage years were well spent in that state and in Northern Illinois. Arrowheads, a great assortment of semi-precious gemstones, fish and so forth...but never any gold. I once found some evidence of the latter in Ontario north of Red Lake. Welcome to this forum where there is rarely a day gone by without some new insight or twist to this shared passion of ours.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I have been rock hounding my whole life and my boy hood home and moms place is a rock and gem garden.

When family and friends visit her they say it looks like a museum with specimens every where.

Every time I come to visit I bring more choice pieces to here. Some I load up with a lift truck.

It is a passion for sure! and the fever in the hunt is what drives us.

I have made some mods to my sluice box this year trying to catch more fines. That's about all the gold I find here.

They do not allow any dredges for the recreational prospector and limits on mineral collecting.

Pretty strict on digging up anything. I can't figure what there problem is; as long as you leave it like you found it.

Bureaucrats don't want any one to enjoy them selves any more. I wash some rocks in the stream and take the heavy metals home.

PS! I help keep America clean and take the lead buck shot home so the duckies don't injest it.

I used to find a lot of beer cans and bottles but now it is the Yuppie plastic water bottles I haul home.

Just checking in with every one. I am from Wisconsin so any one close give a shout out. I am on a couple of other forums that don't seam to go any where.

Just wondering if any one else hunts here in Wisconsin?

I picked up another detector last week end; It is a Gold Bug.

Any reviews on this machine?

It was on sale and thought I would add it to my tool box.

I have been going out solo and thought if I had enough machines to invite others out.

The grand kids had a blast at my brothers place when I brought out the 2 machines to play with.
