    Good eye!

    Maybe, but not likely. I didn't post the other pics I have.

    Best,

    Re: Pegleg's Black Gold Nuggets

    I am the first to admit I'm not as knowledgable about desert gold as those of you down in the desert.... but doesn't that gold appear to be extremely water worn? Those look like river nuggets that have traveled quite a ways.....

    I have seen a bit of gold from deserts, and while worn, it generally appears a little more jagged that those nuggets.

    Maybe taking a peak at ancient river channels would be in order? (Just a thought)

    The story about this gold is that it has sat exposed to the atmosphere for hundreds of years. Before that, it may have been in a stream or river.

    It most decidedly has been. If you can locate the ancient channels in your general area of search, it may help narrow things down a bit.

    This one is some low grade silver ore. The silver in quartz must still be in my rucksack. I'll get that one later.

    gollum . stright up , who's hand is that . dont beleive the person i beleive that is fake.. not to say the legend is fake in fact i beleive the this legend could be true . but i have not read much about ..at frist sight , i thaught those nuggets in his hand were gewing gum painted . ley me explan . if you were to place a book flat on your hand you would most likely put the booh in your oppisite hand ....if he was left handed . thus if he placed those nuggets on the book to be painted . he would pray with his left hand . this person is left handed ... thus you see specks of paint on his fingers and wrest and this would be why the paint is up high on his wrest , and yes it dose loook like pray paint ...

    IMHO this has nothing to do with the validity of this legend this only reflects upon the honesty of this individual.

    I believe from your photos you are in fact in right area. I've not read very much about this legend it was out of the area of my research so I cannot relate that he factors of this legend to your search area. If you'd want some insight I would need to know more and I'd have to read up on this legend. I will stop back and check your reply... You look to be doing some good field work stick with it rewards come to those that are willing to put in the effort.

    Sheehs, about time someone started posting again. It is there, don't let it die, and it will by the next generation IF you peeps don't go get it..

    Jeffro, you are correct, it has been obvious from the start that they had been subject to water action. ( an old gold prospecter always notices that Jeffro). A google type search should help confirm the past flows.

    Hint, IF you can identify the flow, go up stream to the "source" of the Gold, why play with a small residual down stream placer. he he he.

    p.s. how are you doing with your property? HI to our Dianna.

    Mike, are those samples float or freshly broken from a ledge/vein? Definitely interesting ore, well worth further investigation whether related to the Pegleg legend or not. Copper mining companies are actively looking for new deposits..... (hint hint! )

    HI MR ORO: In Mexico? Have goodies, plus I own one in the middle of the Piedras Verdes, Sonora Cu operation. Some day they will have to buy it.

    Float! THAT'S THE PROBLEM!

    If I could find the vein, I'll bet there would be some gold handy! I do know what you're saying about the copper, though.
