How does Nevada differ from Arizona in terrain and placer gold ?


Recommended Posts

I love watching old cowboy  shows and its noticable that some terrain really looks different  from Nevada  vs Arizona.  Really  like the long tall mountain  ranges  of Nevada  .

Let's hear it from you  guys which you like better  over the other and why ?

The rye patch area is high desert with stubby sage, fairly easy walking. I like that.

Gold basin is similar without the sage, I like that, too.

 I love the  Sierras but the altitude is too high for me now.

i don’t care for cactus covered gold fields. You didn’t ask but...

Western Australia is my favorite place.

I would settle in Winnemucca, Nevada. Puts you right smack in the middle of some nice gold placers. I have a hunch there's some undiscovered patches somewhere in that general area. Lots of unexplored territory that has never seen a metal detector whether east, west, north or south from there.

The two Geologies are quite different.    Completely different Rock Make up to the most parts I think.   Arizona more Volcanic in nature.  Nevada more  Tectonic Plate displacement.  Push Up from the Sea Floor.     Even the Gold was formed in different manners.
