All the gold I found since Mid-April


Recommended Posts

Hopefully some of you other guys have been doing better than myself.

Perhaps, this can be a thread where all are welcome to post their gold found since the world changed.

Seriously, anyone who found some nuggets since April, post em up.  Let's see them !!

That cricket has found more gold than the 'Two Toms'.  We haven't been out this year as yet due to other than the heat and virus.  Young Tom is all tied up taking care of his wife who is very ill.  I've been coming back from my own bout with hospitals and cancer.  My back and legs don't work very good anymore and tomorrow I go to the doc to find out about Stem Cell Therapy for my knees.  I sure would like to get out again.  I know there is a big nugget out there just waiting to be picked up and i want to be the one to do it.  The rains are coming and cooler weather is not far away.  Screw the 'Virus'  :-)

I will pray for peace for your family and if I see your big nugget I will leave it out there with your name on it . I really hope the health issues you and your family are going through will get solutions and that your doctors get the wisdom they need to treat them . Blessing my friend .

Ok, I’ll post something. I got lucky last month and swung over this specimen in way up Northern California . I dug up a big rock and thought it was a hot rock but then swung back over the hole and the target was still in the hole and I found this. It was only 4” deep and I was using my trusty GPX4000 with the 12”x15” Commander coil.

My finds for April/May, then the engine in my prospecting rig went Tango/Uniform.

I'm happy to say I got out, got the skunk. 

Found some acreage that the entire section had been claimed, and someone dropped the claim.  Very hard to get to with no roads and trails touching this acreage.  Nice dark red quartz and bedrock to get anyone excited, so its worth another trip back.

Well Hello Luke,.....

Sure glad this "ISN'T" one of those "Way-To-present, AND Way-to-frequent"  Leftest, ...Rightest, ...Political, ....Opinionated, ...Extreemest,...Conspiracy Theoryest  Bull Sh.... posts that persist on this forum these days;...  I'ts gotten to where it's not even worth posting a picture on here any more,....But, for the sake of what gold has been found lately I'll post a couple just to keep the subject on track.  The last photo (of the vile of gold) is what I have accumulated thus far by panning-out concentrates at home.  So far I have only 2.15 grams of: specks, flakes, slivers, some wire gold, safety pin head size nuggets, sub-pickers, and a couple actual pickers.  I'ts been way-too frig'n HOT even up here to go out much.  Keep er-Safe out there.......  Gary

Nice finds Gary!   Not so much the heat up there as the dern humidity! We were up there in Aug camping and it rained. It was so Awesome and cool that day/night. The next day was absolutely brutal. I drank my whole 3 liter back pack just going up one wash. Thats all I did was one wash that day :) Altitude change kick my butt up there also.

Here's one I've watched a couple times.  These guys have been moderately successful over the years.

Glad to hear about the rain! We need rain and chiggers   :) Not to bad down here right now. 88F. Feels kind of cool out. A very mild monsoon so far. But, that can flip on a dime.
