    I have found gold where some info.said I would not.I've also come up dry for the effort where some info.said "thars gold there".Geologic knowledge is very useful,but apparently is not the absolute.You know...shear,faults,quartz,mineral precip.,black sand and so on.If YOU think it's worth a try...try it.In your photo it looks like there may be some projected intrusive rock over softer rock,if that is indeed the case and your going to dredge the submerged bank cut..stay sharp,be safe and good luck.

    Sorry..but it's difficult to say with photo alone.In the what it's worth department though,the cliff face looks to have a harder rock between the two eroded lines.If I had to GUESS...I would say the protruded rock is granitic in nature.But it's really hard to tell by just a photo.But hey..do a little sampling.Maybe move down flow from that rock face a bit and see if you can find a good spot to try.You might be able to better determine what the native makeup is.Might even turn some shine.Maybe other stuff too.Good Luck.
