Mojave Desert Gold

Recommended Posts

"Spud Digger" Rob Johnson just posted a short video on his YouTube "Spud Digger" channel. Most of the day was spent exploring rather than detecting but some decent gold was found.

Go to YouTube, do a search for Spud Diggers, click on the video entitled "We found gold metal detecting in California." HH Jim

very informative video, Is it the same area or different areas where they found the nuggets?

Looks similar to the Humbug Claims... nice gold great finds...

The San Bernardino Wash Meteorites are right next to that Gold Crown Mine also...

A silver star for you, Dave. Craig's piece (in the dirt clod) was indeed Humbug. And, yes, we were at Gold Crown Mine, adjacent to San Bernardino Wash. The arrastre in the opening scene was at Old Dale. We shot the video in November, Rob's usual posting time is 3 months after filming. We intend to shoot another mid-April.
