    There is a lot of unclaimed ground.
    Yup - Proper research.

    Awesome, thanks! Well then yesterday I continued my search and found a couple more small nuggets. Unbelievable every crack in this new section contained gold. One little dent had a single pebble in it. I figured eh why not only takes a second. Biggest piece of the day was under that single pebble

    No for that bit I went in the fastest part of some rapids and found a log crack that seemed to be unopened. I went back today and all the rest were already busted as well as the next half mile. Not a single piece of gold.

    I’m in placer county in ca.

    The gold is so strange. I found that one wide slot littered with flakes, and also the nugget and nothing else around. No color in the pan. Public land is so picked over it seems like the rules go out the window and you just need to get lucky and see an overlooked crack.
