    sluicing stanislaus Italian Bar

    Up in Sonora and visited Italian bar today. I can say we worked our butts off, but ran 2 full buckets of selected earth and didn't even find a flak. Kind of disappointing. I usually get gold when I go out, but nothig from Italian Bar. I am wondering if it's just too picked over or just the wrong place to dig,

    Any thoughts on where to find gold on the stanislaus? I don;t need your favorite, secret spot, but any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, would it benefit us to try a different River? We worked the Merced for about half an hour and got decent color.

    If Italian Bar area isn't producing for you, then it looks like you answered your own question.
    Stick with the Merced if that's where you found decent color. Gold Nuggets
    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.

    If you hunted the Italian Bar, you are probably GPAA. Go to ask the caretaker for the hot spots. Or try the ledge about 100 yards downstream and 25 yards up off the river, on the north side. The Italian Bar used to be heavily hunted using dredges. Get creative. Find boulders just up out of the stream flow. Good luck. TTC
