    -50 is pretty tiny gold but it will add up if you can move enough paydirt, otherwise I'd keep prospecting for something better especially if you're in an area known for good gold.

    You could always go back if other areas don't pan out. There is only so much time and bigger gold is time well spent if you hit a hot spot.
    Your question was "worth running lots of this dirt?" the answer is yes if your results are consistent and you run lots of it.

    I'm hoping I can one day say that also... With a straight face.

    No disrespect intended.
    I live in Indiana and most of the Gold I recover in the state is -50

    However it's all relative. In an area known to produce larger gold I would be prospecting for the larger gold.
    But that's just me.

    So I went back to my spot. Brought 2 buckets back, one from about 1-1/2 ft deep and one from about 3 ft deep. Haven't gone thru it all yet, but I did pan about 2 handfuls of dirt from the 1-1/2ft deep bucket and found this...

    You're definitely on a sweet spot. Have you claimed the location yet? If not, better do so. You've proven its worth by now!

    Your doing just fine, if she keeps feeding you then no point in looking else where.

    Thanks for keeping us updated. Keep up the good work.

    Worth running lots of this dirt?

    Thank you! It's blm land unclaimed as of yet, I don't know if it's able to be claimed or not. I'll post more pics as I go through the rest of my buckets. I need to try to run 20 buckets instead of hauling just the best out. I'm headed back up there this weekend, hopefully with the zook or gold cube depends on water flow...

    I'd run a sluice for a full day. That is plenty. If the values hold you will do very well.

    And yeah, get a claim on it if it's open. That's good gold.
