    Gold in Sacramento,hell yes. from Sac. to Folsom there use to be piles of rock along the American river from dredges most have been flatten and homes built on them. Back in the day when I was young there was a large dredge on south sunrise ave by the Dougless rocket plant the hole is still there. Now I drive 15 min from my home in Orangevale to a small creek near Miners ravine always find gold mostly fine but some times little nugs! My spot is on a old friends land 135 acres, sometimes its not what you know its who you know.

    Brasseagle: the problem is that teichart and aerojet own all the land that is good for prospecting along 50 corridor. Have tou ever worked the little creek flowing throuhh miners ravine park? Glad you know someone with private property! I have always wanted to explore the housing developments along auburn-folosm rd.

    I have been here. if you park on the right side you can go down to the creek and follow it all the way to negro bar. not much gold down there. it has a deep ravine and is hard to work. there used to be minning camp along there a good place to metal deteck

    I was just looking at all those no parking signs on google maps last night. Bummed me out as I was hoping on stopping there Fri. Gold creek bridge looks easy to get to. Same with miners park.

    Looking at all the dredging piles all over sac is pretty impressive. I see them everywhere. You get the impression there's not alot of land they didn't dredge that's for sure. Maybe work those areas next to the old taillings? Find some spots they missed? I see some interesting spots around mississippi bar and further down. Wonder how far away from the river they actually dredged.

    Wow, just looking at that area from white rock road to 50. That's a lot of dirt moved around.

    How about Willow creek in folsom?

    Those old bucket line dredges made their own waterways, just google map missippi bar or sunset and main to see the way they cut into the river bank and cut their own channels. if I evrr get a gold bug 2 or gmt I think I ll go search over the tailing piles out there.

    Mississippi bar is all park right? So it would be okay to pan and detect? I like the look of those tailings.

    Sid: yes to panning, no to detectoring, I believe. Never seen any law enforcement out there anyway, as far as following the rules. Most parks along there are "pans and hands" only, no shovels, motorized, electric prospecting allowed...

    If you detect the tailing piles look for what was a clay balls they pick up nugs and took them out of the sluice box and drop then on the tailing piles
