    Gold

    I was digging for arrowheads behind the house and decided to test the dirt coming out of the hole . I ran a five gallon bucket through the sluice and found a few specks of gold . I just hit bedrock so I'm going to clean a few cracks and see what else is hiding . Kelsey N. California

    You can pretty much find specks of gold anywhere around the foothills of the Sierras...nice find!

    that detector found a lot of gold for me. thank you.
    also, that trip is etched in my mind. that same night a brown bear
    woke me up at 2am, in my tent on the middle fork american river.
    i never packed up a camp so fast in my life.
    fun memories.

    That’s actually quite a bit of gold for 3/4 of a 5 gal. bucket!

    Surely you knew there was gold on your property?

    Its seasonal dry diggings need a lot of rain or haul the dirt up the hill .

    That's kind of what I was thinking.

    Doesn't take much water to do a small recirculating system.
    Especially if you have two lined ponds. That coarse gold will settle out of the muddiest water.

    My older brother once made a dryland dredge/highbanker out of HDPE.
    We ran it all day on a trickle of water impounded behind some tarps. Probably 200 gallons of water. Amazed me how little water it took. Shovel the overburden through the highbanker..then blast the bedrock clean into a low spot..suck it up with the nozzle.

    Would work great for the shallow small gully/draws.

    I was thinking about renting an excavator to dig a pound on a spring . And move a bunch of tailing piles to metal detect under them and make a new access to the back of my property .

    I like the way you think!
    If you line the pond..you could solar pump the water to a tank on a hill maybe?

    Also a lined pond will hold storm water run off for quite a long time.
    At least until the temps get into the 90's.

    How many acres? Maybe you need an old backhoe around.
