    History Channel video on how gold is found in California



    How accurate is the information they're presenting here? Especially that part about the giant bands of quartz veins that run along the mountains here? And the areas that are up to 1000 feet above a river that has river bed deposits still full of gold?

    Very accurate. That's Chris Ralph Editor ICMJ. Author of the Book Fists Full of Gold. Geologist, pro-prospector.

    Chris is a very successful geologist, prospector and writer. He makes a good living from prospecting. He knows his stuff and I'm proud to call him my friend.

    Watch his videos. Get his book "Fists Full of Gold" and read it. You will be a better prospector.
