    Found new area finding all kinds of history

    Been working a area and have been digging up lots of square nails shovels axe heads picks and files but only one coin 1929s penny and lots of horse shoes. Cant find much info on the property but the poison oak is so bad caught it twice already. Found some good gold but the creeks are dry right now. the area was mined a lot at one time piles of rocks everywhere on both sides of the creeks the area is close to webber creek and the American river anyone know about this area.

    Sounds like you stumbled onto some sort of old homestead site.

    Youve already given out too much info.
    You should be cautious since readers on here will use your info to hone in on your spot.
    I just saw it happen on another forum, so be aware as a new member that it happens all the time and
    dont give out any clues (unless you want company).

    Loyd,
    ...sounds like a work station, an activity area where there was a wood shop or a smithy's area..., (Man Cave?)
