    West Georgia Gold

    Went to a small creek near Buchanan, Georgia last Friday after Thursdays' rain and before Saturdays'!! Big floods mover all the gravel around in the creek. I put my 3" in below a small 3" waterfall. I planned to longarm instill the knee busted out of my waders!! Then I got my wetsuit and air and got right in. I ran a couple of tanks of gas and got out before a rain shower hit. Got some gold but no big pieces. There are four shooting houses within sight of the creek so prospecting is over till hunting seasonout!!

    Re: West Georgia Gold

    Thanks Strick,
    I try to keep an eye out for artifacts but haven't had any luck yet. I went back to the spot in the photo one more time before cold weather . I put in 30 feet above and got into some good hardpack before I reached too far down into a crack and filled my new waders!! Come warm weather I plan to clean that spot out looking for the "deep" hole in a shallow creek.

    A friend of mine has land near Byron, Ga where he has picked up numerous points and tools. He want me to dredge the creek , but I don't know how i can hold the points in the sluice box. Any ideas?

    Re: West Georgia Gold

    Try putting screen box behind your dredge using 1/4 mess like i did to find the fariy crosses. its best to have some help keeping the screen clean out . it works just a lot of work . im going to try it down at buchanann to see what happens when the weather breaks

    Re: West Georgia Gold

    also ,i found a civil war bullet there as well.but esp. when in that area watch for gold with maganese coating (black gold) i have a few nuggetts there that were hard to tell that they were gold .the first one i found was the size a pencil earaser and 90 pecent black ,i cleaned it up -it looked a little better -but when i put it in my vial,it would turn back black.one spot on it did show gold.frustrated at this i melted it down-using borax and alchohol to shield the gold -when it was melted (waving my flame as not to get it too hot)i used a graphite stick (bought from prospectors pouch on 41)to pull out the slag and impurities.it worked pretty good but i did lose a little weight .due to impurities.

    Re: West Georgia Gold

    Strick,
    i have two coffee cans of black sand . I have panned thwem and ran them through a spiral wheel. Would it be worthwhile to try to melt it with a torch? I have a magnet from a dial indicator that will pull the magnetics out. I have a cutting torch and a weed burner at the shop. Any ideas

    Re: West Georgia Gold

    kilnmaint the weed tourch doesnt work well i used one of these to put down & melt rubber roof even it wont keep it hot enough all the time & when you use the blower it will blow your gold everywhere.

    I believe , might be wrong, that their is a mother load that hasnt been found yet with in 25 miles of buchanan.
    i have said this before that ive found the same amount of gold their that ive found in dalohonaga ga . ive only been dredging their for a yr now their several creeks id like to check out around the area
