    just keep at it you are on to something I am not saying there is not gold in Texas just not big nuggets. I am sure they have to be out there maybe the Devil's Backbone or around Round Rock I was just told today that in Harwood,Texas they are going to drill some core samples out of where an old mine shaft once was they came upon it by accident drilling for oil when gold was found on there drill not a lot of it but the company wants to drill more they told this farmer guy in Harwood.

    Gold does exist in Texas. A few miles northeast of Brady Texas is a rock-walled creek where I found 3 small nuggets in the flowing water. I have been wanting to return with my metal detector but am getting too old to make the trip. Also, I was stationed at Fort Bliss in El Paso for many years, in my spare time I would hike in the Franklin mountains. I found an old man-dug 'cave', albeit small, but it too has small gold nuggets mixed in with other rock, maybe quartz? Anyway, you go in from the west side on the Trans-mountain highway, and walk from the park there to a saddle in the ridge, walking eastward. From the saddle, looking down toward the east, you can see the place I am talking about, but it is hidden and I covered it back as I found it, with rocks and brush. I'm sure if I were to dig there I would find large amounts of gold, seeing how I found small amounts just laying all around when I first uncovered the site. I don't think gold exists in Texas like it does in Arizona or Utah, but it is definitely there.

    TexasGoldHunter, Do you still do a lot of metal detecting? I see you are from Weimar. I was wondering if you ever metal detected around the old New Bielau dance hall that burned down a few years ago. That dance hall was there since at least the early 1900's if not longer and would be a great place to find old coins. Also, on the Strunk place outside of Oakland, Butch found an old Mexican saber back in the 70's, supposedly from Santa Anna's men lost as they were traveling back to Mexico. Gold was supposedly also lost in the mud along the creek there to be recovered later, but since Santa Anna was defeated, the gold was never recovered.

    I assume that is from the Llano area? Nice strike! There is gold outside of Smithville also.

    Well, you must have hit on an unknown gold area. It could be a great find, so keep it secret. I found gold when I worked at a gravel pit back when I was in high school. We had it tested and they said it was gold, but one other guy and I never told anyone about where we got it from. I always planned to return one day and pan some, but never did. It is in Colorado County. Texas.
