    Re: Tell me about finding a lode

    Hello robbor,Yes sometimes you can see gold in the quartz after digging it outof a vein.But mostly you don't see much for often it's covered with clay,mud etc.You can sample the different veins with using handtools only or using a detector,which has it's uses in hardrock.Butwhat if there's a pocket two feet insidethe vein?? One shouldlook in a known gold area,especially if it producedhigrade gold in the past.If you just want use hand tools,it's a fairly inexpensive way to start if your serious about it.Or you can buy an expensive detector and search mine dumps and other hardrock areas for specie.Any ,fire away.
