    FINALLY !! MY FIRST REAL HIT

    SO, watching hours of Youtube videos and listening to tips from Tnet members I took a gamble and went to a spot I studied on a Geological map of my state. Everyday I eagerly awaited the mailman like Ralphy in A Christmas Story. THEN IT CAME I couldnt get the box opened fast enough..My first attempt to do exactly like the pro's behind my house didnt go so well but I trudged on. FINALLY TODAY I hurried to a spot that looked promising. Its not thousands of dollars BUT after FINALLY seeing what others show and talk about I can now say I am truly ill with gold fever....Click image for larger version.

    Oh Oh...next comes a sluice, then a highbanker, etc., etc., then hell from the old lady for junking up the garage. Welcome to our world.

    ....then you start a mining company, drag some people into it with You, make a few strikes, then start working to quit your day job because you're sitting on 10's of millions of gold and silver ore...etc etc ad nauseum.

    s2ndjetli,
    So much of this life is about enjoying yourself while you are out there however, gold in the pan puts a little Zing into a day out. Congratulations on obtaining the first start of your poke!..................63bkpkr

    Nice gold! Really good for ohio standards.How much material did you pan to get that much? Im a few counties east from you, always thought summit looked good from the maps. Even driving on 76 near lodi you can see the glacial material on the roadcuts.

    MAYBE 2 ounces Blich.. I panned out about 5 yards full.. I went to a creek below my house and got the citys permission to pan it but endid up getting cuts from all the glass so I dont think ill be back.. I got some soil from the Columbus area but havent panned it yet, I think it has a better chance of producing than here by Akron.. Summit County is cut everywhere with what MAY have gold and may not based on the geo maps Im finding out.
