    I know it's been a few years since a reply to this thread, but I was wondering if anyone is still prospecting in the area? I am just getting started (wrong time of year I know!), but I have a creek near me that I want to check out and hopefully get a little color in the pan. I'm obviously not going to get rich!

    This Thread has not been lost... Lol I am new to the game as of a month ago. I live in Springville, Ny. I have been out a few times with no luck. I thought I seen 2 micro prices in my pan but once I put them in my bottle they were gone. I bought Royal Manufacturing’s 30” Recirculating Sluice box but haven’t taken it out in the field yet. I’ve just classified a couple 5 gallon buckets down to 1/4 in and ran it at home. I did find a lot of black sand and magnetite and what looked like Quartz but no real find. I’m not giving up though. Maybe one day I will make back my $300 investment in the sluice box, pan and classifier. I know that sluicing may not be the way to go in WNY. I’m currently looking for a local spot with exposed bedrock to crevice.
    Oh, your all not alone when you say people think your crazy. Everyone that knows I bought a sluice box says so.
    I was told to make a trip for the weekend and go to NC but I’m not looking to spend more money.
    If anyone knows the area I live in and knows of a good place to crevice pls let me know.

    Will you find enough to pay for a gallon of gas and a small McNuggets, no drinks are included. I live in Hyde Park, NY and there isn't enough gold to pay for a gallon if you worked at it all month. Panned most of the creeks and kills in the area... nada.
    The view is always better with 500 feet of air under your buttocks.
