    What rocks are you looking for to find gold or are you panning aimlessly

Has a huge retreval rate andyou dont need to really classify down your material. So you can move alot of material fast and hopefully get me better results then just panning. Next year buying a dredge and going to really take this NY gold and put it on the map. Its out there and its pretty much in every pan I work. Its actually pretty damn exciting, gold fever in WNY?

    Wolf Trap sluice? Yes, they do work fine in fast water.

    If your gold looks rusty it is most likely fools gold which is Iron pyrite, which when hasn't been disturb for a long period of time the iron in it will rust. This is a very common mineral found in the north east. Most of the real gold here in New York is remnants of the old ice age deposits but most found at these lower latitudes is very fine or in very small quantities and very scattered. I have panned many area's around 18 mile creek in Western New York and have found next to nothing. But that isn't to say there isn't any around.
