I wonder if he was detecting in the Colbalt mining district in Canada? A few years ago, detectorists were finding tons of native silver in the old mine dumps. I don't think it was crystalized or anything. Just massive native silver. Probably still a lot of detecting still going on using the lastest technology like the GPZ 7000. I remember seeing an old picture of a silver sidewalk. It must have been at least three feet wide, one foot thick and can't remember how long it was.

I do think a lot of us have overlooked silver when out prospecting.  We're not tossing silver nuggets back to grow bigger, but the black and green silver ores go overlooked.

Been detecting sense about age 11 and only found a couple little peaces of native silver.  That was down south of Tombstone .  You can find bits of Silver Ore in a lot of the old mines here but nothing like this guy was on.

Lots of silver around Pioche, NV which has a real interesting history. According to some, "this town made Deadwood and Tombstone look like kindergarten"
