    Re: Gold in Puerto Rico?

    Hehehe. I noticed that CR thing, too! <-- for you, Rassau!!

    My quick Google indicates that the Spanish did get gold from PR. They didn't get it all, so yes, there is gold there. Kind of like the '49's didn't get all the gold from CA here in the states!

    Get out to some creeks and do a little test panning. Who knows, you might start another gold rush from Spain!

    Keep us posted on what you find,

    Delwin79,

    You don't need to spend anything on a gold pan. Use whatever you have laying around before spending you money. Check this out: http://nevada-outback-gems.com/desig...n/gold_pan.htm

    Once you find some color, THEN you can start dropping some cash for better equipment. Be warned, it will never end!! Hahaha!

    Good luck,

    Re: Gold in Puerto Rico?

    Delwin... I saw your other post about not having finances, and thought I'd chime in. I was told that you can even use a cheap aluminum pie pan to pan for gold. Just rough it up and bit and maybe put some scratches on the inside (without going all the way through), then have at it! As far as "how" to pan... just go on YouTube and look up "gold panning"

    Re: Gold in Puerto Rico?

    i dont know of any state that requires a permit to pan. all states are different! always check with the powers tobe for info on what you may do in a area! some state parks require a pass. or just let them know what your doing. and it always is predicated that you use a trowel not a shovel. so its very important to know the rules of where your at.
