Wow, desert varnished Entrada or Kayenta sandstones, beetle kill tamarisk in the flats, red clay weakly cemented gravels.

I'm fairly certain you are only a few miles downstream from one of my Western Slope claims. Your gold is much finer than mine though so maybe I'm off base? :200:

Anyways, nice gold. I don't think a lot of people understand what "fine" placer means until they have prospected Colorado. :arrowheadsmiley:

ya mostly 20 mesh and down but some very small wire gold and a few 1/8 nugs but I yet to find one.

yep Colorados got plenty of fine gold and one only needs to slow there water a bit and feed rate to have high recovery of it. If my pans look like this I'll just make my own nuggets.If I ever find myself on good nugget county I have anther sluice and pump to run high water volume set up behind the trommel so I can run the tailings

Thanks Oakveiw2 But I don't know about being a McGiver but I am kinda lazy and work hard at it.

Glad you enjoy the videos
