    Looking for a close area to prospect

    Hey everyone I'm here in SPRINGVILLE utah. do you guys know of anything close by other than Tibble fork. I wanted to go down to fish creek but might not be able to go that far. Ibe herd rumors of gold being found in provo canyon but not sure. I want to try my new sluice but anyway if you guys know of some good areas close to where I'm at I'd love to hear from you
    Have pride in every aspect of your life. Have pride in everything you do. be it your job, or your home life, to washing dishes to your habits. if you do this you will be proud of yourself and who you are and know that if your Proud with what you've done, then others will be amazed. so you'll never have to worry about someone else telling you you've done something good

    Get out of the stream and go out to the mines. You live just on the eastern edge of one of the biggest mining districts I've had the pleasure of exploring. Check out Tintic mining district on the web. If you're limited to a sluice box you'll be hard pressed to find year round creeks out there but you may find seasonal creeks. If you have a detector, there's high grade ore piles everywhere. The old miners didn't have the ability to see into rock like we do. If you can get a dry washer then you're on to something that's economically exciting. There's one rule that applies to Tintic. If it's easy to get to, it's already gone. Don't expect to drive right up to a mine and get out of the car and work the tailings. Find the ones off the beaten path.

    that's honestly the best advice I could give you. T hunter nailed it on the nose. I'm a river prospector I play with a pan aNs sluice and have tons of fun. I'd love to get a good detector but funding at the moment is a little less than previously. but there's tons of gold out there. hit the old mines and tailing piles. you'll know them when you see them. big piles of dirt and rock just sitting out of nowhere. in a stream you can see them as long strips of rock and dirt and rock that come out of nowhere. I love going back through those. honestly I find more gold out of the tailings from people with conventional sluices than I do just hunting for it. god I love my bazookas. I've tested my tailings and found a few specs I've missed. but when I test otger peoples they miss far more. but anyway
