    Nice find! I live south of Buffalo and own some land on a small creek where I too have found small amounts of gold, much smaller unfortunately! I used an old pan once, not a gold pan, and I found a flake. I recently found a piece of quartz with gold flakes in it so I want to do some small time dredging when it finally warms up! I've done some metal detecting in the creek but it's full of metal trash! In fact I found an old Model T leaf spring back there today just sticking out of the creek bank under a tree stump. We have found some amazing Native American stone tools, which are many thousands of years older than you would think they would be, maybe 5,000 years? My dad always said, don't watch where you're going, look at the ground, people lose a lot of things!

    where abouts in wny are you atv guy? im looking for some new creeks to check out - was thinking letchworth sometime soon- and yah it takes a long time to find anything around here. theres not too many places to go. gotta find the small feeder creeks and brooks that have lots of exposed rock and not much sediment and suck the cracks out with a shop vac or some tool.

ID:	772621 I'm near Chestnut Ridge, my creek flows down from Eternal Flame Falls, you may have heard of it, or been there. Using a shop vac is a great idea to get at some gold. Metal detecting & treasure hunting is a great hobby no matter what you find, learning the history of the area you live in is the real pay off.

    Hey guys, Bill here from Amherst NY. I just got into the hobby and have went out about 4 times now. Went to 18 Mile Creek and up in East Aurora so far. No luck yet, but its ok Im just learning. Im making a hand powered dredge this week and seeing how that work out for me. I did some crevesing today and thought for sure I had something but no deal lol. Im running into alot of smaller rocks and clay but no real black sand yet. Its a learning process and its something I want to do for years to come. Anyways, Im looking for someone who may want to meet up and do some prospecting with. My friends think Im nuts but thats fine, kinda looking for like minded people who just enjoy being out and the thrill of the hunt. Any tips on some good places to look around here would be great. Not to much on google about gold mining in Buffalo or WNY. Oh and if I do find gold the state can kiss my ass! hahaha, anyways feel free to try me on my google voice number if any of you guys want to put something together. 716-703-8011 -Bill-

    Congrats! Its great to find gold in areas not historically known to have been mined. You never know what you might find. You are in an area that was very very heavily glaciated.
