Hey guys

I have a cabin up near christopher creek northeast of payson on the 260. I go up there frequently and know the forests around there and the rim area like the back of my hand. When I am up there I often spend 12 hours just hiking around different parts of the land and was curious if anyone knows places up there that would be good for metal detecting for nuggets while I am hiking around all day.

I don't much enjoy doing a lot of panning and am not looking for the motherload just curious if there are any areas i might come across a nugget now and then.

Thanks

vic

There is said to be some gold near Christopher Creek for panning and also there is an area near Rye, but other than that the area is not known for placer gold. There are some good places to collect rocks though from what I have been told.
