    Target area Big rocks, OR better yet, whats underneath them. With above tools we moved a small pile of 1/2 to 1 Ton boulders.Dug under them (as far as we could go). Classified material (on site) to 1/4",brought material home,reduced material further to minus 10, and minus 20 mesh,ran material on my home made Miller Table........And the results Click image for larger version.

    What are we seeing here? A mixture of gravel and gold or what?
    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Nice take. My sister lives in Virginia. Next time I go down, I'll have to bring my equipment. Are there any good public spots there?

    In Virginia, if you access a creek (from a public road) and stay BELOW the high water mark your legal.

    Great haul! I zoomed in on the picture, did see what I think is a wee bit of gravel in it, but the rest sure looks like gold to me. And we're only about 90 minutes apart - and I've never found a speck on my streams.

    Yeah,a little gravel. Most of what looks like gravel,is small garnet .What your looking at is how it came (directly)off the Miller-table. Love the Miller !Some don't, but once its set up correctly, its hard to beat.
