Gold fever in Serbia


Recommended Posts

Hello dear friends its been while from my last visit to forum. I hope you guys all in good health, and suround with good gold, cold beer and hot womens :)

Im been in mountains its my second year of runavay from jail sentence for growing weed for my moms cure. 4 more and i am free man again :)

Every winter the same, Bill warning me on this. Gold fever hits me strong as hammer, on day its come from time to time, waching Discovery and get some cure from gold rush series, but nights its completly restless. Every single night in my dreams its gold prospecting, its makes me almoust mad. 2 more cold months before its been warm enough for prospecting. 

My trouble its that someone robe my home when i been in mountains, and tok avay lot of my propperty luck that my detectors its been at my dads home. I find and buy here in Serbia gold pans, but cant find any stream sluice box. If someone of you guys have used stream sluice i will be wery happy to buy it. I am not good with money now, i can send now money for shippment to serbia, and to pay for sluice at end of first prospecting round. I will be 10 days in round in wildernes prospecting, than go sell find resuply food and things and go new round and than til september. 

Greetings to my dear uncle Bill, Garimpo, El D, Au seeker, Wess, Hoser John.. and all rest my american friends you all in my mind and heart every time i think abouth gold and prospecting.

Sure Slobo, I was wondering if you can attempt to try and make a sluice box, its fairly simple. I have made a few myself with simple boards, scrap metals, and such things. Having aluminum is not necessary , you can find simple plans on the internet that will have simple instructions how to make a sluice box. Some cut lumber , nails,  find some scrap metal and  you will be in business. I am from a small town near Valpovo, but have not lived there for many , many years. Just tryng to give you a few ideas....I know you can do it

I know to make perfect one if have tools and materials. Need to be as light as can, so aluminium its choice, becouse i go into wilderness, and need to carry all on my back, including tent, pick, shovel, food supply, rubber boots, many things man need when its alone outside in forest. I am not soft man, but wooden sluice going to be wery unplesant baggage on my back

Miro, now i see where its valpovo. Its near Drava river. Do you know drava its also gold bearing river, but most of it its flour gold wery small in size

   Yes I used to swim in it as a kid lol....the Drava River is gold bering but flour gold only, a few people are highbanking the benches and beaches. I am interested to

  know if the Kucevo area near Majdanpek has bigger gold or nuggets? I know and heard stories form my uncle who worked there for a while that it was very rich.

 His job was to document the goings of the ore dump trucks, he told me once a fist size piece of ore fell out and it was laced with gold all over. So there must be

some good nuggets in the local streams and gullies in those mountains. The history of mining in this region goes back several thousand years, when it was part of Rome of course they continued on with mining as this was a major silver/gold source during the Roman Empire. Huge mounds of slag are still present in the region left from thousands of years of processing ores. Any way i hope to visit the area next year and do some exploring. I have family in Novi Sad, Batajnica and Beograd. My goal is to add a few gold specimens /nuggets from Serbia.

Kucevo area its mostly known for gold prospecting. But its heavy prospected for thousands years. Nuggets are wery rare, becouse every year hundreds of prospecting teams and several big companies doing prospecting. Its not big area as Alaska  or Cali gold fields, its Pek river and creeks that go to pek. Pek its deep gravel deposits, to hit bedrock need big mashines, and on creeks every year many teams take every single bit of gold. Only roman emperor Hadrian have 50,000 slaves to prospect for gold on Pek and suround creeks, so every single nugget of any size its taken long ago.  I work on wirgine grownd, dont find any single trace in history of prospecting that creek its 150km air line from that area i accidently see white quartz there and try sampling with simple plastic dish and score some flakes. Than find this forum and this good people help me a lot send me lot of prospecting tools to help newbie prospector. I have a52p sluice from Kenee Bill Don El D and guys send to me as a guift, and its been awesome tool, but its stolen when my home its robbed. If you comming serbia i will be very happy to be your host to go in prospecting adventures. And i have nice roman and medieval grownd for metal detecting for coins and relics

Like so many places  the big gold unfortunately has been mined out long ago as it was in many areas of the world, but I am sure there are some left and only the locals know where to look. That A52 is a nice top of the line sluice box, sorry to hear the bad news, it happens over here also more then you think. I was in Serbia in 2019 , was going to come this year but do to Covid I may hold off until 2022, a sluice you may consider is the large foldable sluice box, nice an compact. Keene and Royal makes them and both are very well made sluices. A story about Roman sites and coins, before we moved to the States, my parents sold our house to a family , the husband would go to some local Roman sites after the rains, he would just walk around and pick them up! This was in the late 70's 80's imagine having a detector back then. He had many coins to fill a collection book 3-4 inches thick and many were silver and a few in gold. The history is thick in the Balkans and detecting those grounds would be a thrill I may take you up on that one day. We has such a great time in 2019 I am looking forward to heading back soon, if not this summer for sure next. Have a good day Slobo.

Somevere on forum its my finds from past days. I once strike dicent hoard of silver roman denarus and antoninianus coins, and also find one extremly rare gold roman coin, but its has hole for some idiot carry it around neck, and that kills his hudge numismatic value. Here in Serbia its good situation abouth corona, not to beluve but we are second in whole Europe by nummber of people geth anti-corona cure per number of poppulation.
