A large amount of iron on my black sands magnet


Recommended Posts

I had a lot of iron on my black sands magnet, i'm wondering if that is a good gold indicator.

The thing about finding black sand is that it is heavier than most material and will settle with Gold.

Finding it doesn't mean you will find Gold, just that if Gold is there you're lookin' in the right spot.

What kind of "iron" and can we see a pic of it? I find boot tacks, cut nails and barbed wire fence parts all the time in my concentrates. Means very little though since its all recent and says little about pay streaks. Magnetite chunks larger than golf balls means I'm on some good ground.
