    Detecting gold nuggets in europe ?

    Hi,

    In Australia, if you know where to search, you can find gold nuggets with your metal detector. But for me, it's too much effort to get to australia and search so i want to search in europe.

    How's the situation in europe ? I can't seem to find any good info on locations where gold nuggets have been previously found with metal detectors.

    I live in central europe, so after some research i came to the result that the carpat mountains in romania (Rosia Montana) seem to be one of the biggest gold deposit in europe. Finland also seems to have gold.

    Has anyone ever been in romania (or other european locations) using a metal detector to find gold ? I mean places where you can potentially find decent sized nuggets, like in australia, if that's possible at all in europe.

    Wow, great advice...
    What do you think i'm doing.
    I just wrote that there's very little information on the internet, so i'm asking here. I consider this research, too.

    Yeah thanks for the link, but as you can imagine i already read that 10 times, and it is also unspecific. There's a reason why i'm asking here.

    The problem you have is you need to forget gold nuggets and go after gold/silver coins, the reason you dont find any info is because theres no gold nuggets in central Europe, I want to detect gold nuggets to but in my region its all flour gold so I sluice and pan for me gold...

    merlin01 you might want to be careful with your attitude. I'm not sure if English is your first language or not, but you're coming across as sarcastic and entitled.
    I've been reading this forum for a decade and I cannot remember anyone giving up specific locations where gold nuggets can be found with a metal detector. You probably need to reduce your expectations - it's unlikely someone will give you easy answers.

    The more I think about it.....

    Is your reason because you are trolling us?

    If not, and if you want serious input, then consider that people have been living in Europe for many thousand years and gold is one of the most precious metals on the earth, so people have been looking for it for a long time. Combine that with the fact that metal detectors only detect relatively shallow nuggets (less than a foot deep), so in geological terms they're basically on the surface. And combine that with thousands of years of "natural soil churn" (ice freezes/thaws, rains that erode the land, etc.) to reveal what's just below the surface. Looking at all that in combination I would hypothesize that most of the easy to find gold nuggets in Europe have been found.
    They're hard enough to find in the US, Canada and Australia - countries that have only been gold mined for a few hundred years or less.

    Bluntly I think you might be wasting your time (or ours if you're trolling).

    Honestly, there are no known placer deposits I can think of or find in Europe except, Scotland, Wales, Northern Lapland, and Austria's Tyrol Valley.

    don't let your first interaction with some of our rudest members hold you back man.

    Look into Belgium. It has very favorable geology and a history of mining. France and Germany as well. But their regulations make it difficult.

    I would really look into Finnish Lapland it has placer and lode gold. Very favorable geology for nuggets. A very active small scale community.


    There is an active "recreational" gold prospecting presence in the Czech Republic as well. Lode and placer gold has been mined there for at least 2000 years.

    Switzerland has consistent fine placer gold.

    Don't let anyone tell you that there are no real gold deposits in Europe. Especially placer deposits. it just isn't true.

    Did you see the 85g chunk just found in the UK? They are out there. Keep in mind there are no where near the amount of gold panners as in the US.
    I say you have great chances of finding decent gold if you work for it.

    The notion that Europe's age and the amount of time people have been there . Means all the good nuggets have been found goes against all logic. Europeans have buried more gold in their ground Than they have ever seriously attempted to pull out. Gold mining techniques have improved vastly as well as geologic knowledge. Since the time when gold was used mainly as decoration. Considering that those improvements came about when much of Europe had itchy feet. And visions of golden cities over the far horizon..Inadvertently led to them leaving a whole lot of it in the ground they were already standing on.

    Sorry you got some really unhelpful replies. But, this is an internet gold forum.

    Mainly you will find people who hope to find gold leaving sluice boxes in streams to come back to later...panning sand from the hardware store...and talking themselves and anyone else that dares to listen. Out of finding gold.

    It's weird.Yet, oh so common.

    Just keep doing your own research. Look into mining history of certain regions as you come across them. Just like here and in Australia. The best places are where it has been found before. Good luck. You will find some just keep digging.

    Detecting gold nuggets in europe ?

    Goldwasher I would be happy to be wrong. I donít think what I said goes against logic and I stand by the logic, even if in fact what I said was wrong. I donít know anything about Europe and itís gold deposits and was just trying to apply what I know about the US to the topic (Again I can admit if Iím wrong).

    And characterizing me as ď...some of our rudest membersĒ is just plain unfair. I actually am almost always very constructive and helpful.

    But look at it from my point of view for a moment: a new member shows up and asks the public to reveal great locations to find gold nuggets. And then the new member proceeds to be pretty rude himself to some people who offered suggestions.
    I read that and think ďthis canít be for realĒ.
    And we donít have any evidence is actually is for real by the way.

    I'm in Eastern France, right on the border with Switzerland, Germany 20 mins away.. I did plenty of digging into info a few years ago,, from what i gathered, there is gold about, lots of stories from the old folks (which i love) about Roman Gold and where they were finding it... Alas i haven't hit it yet.
    The Rhine which is close by, has gold, flowing down from Swiss Alps, there are regular gold panning events along it's German shore.. So the gold is making it's way into the big rivers from somewhere... Seems like you will need to get wet. I have some locations marked out for future adventures, but have no idea if they will be productive..
    My advice, start close to home, dig into local legends and stories.. there is always truth somewhere in these tales..

    Bonne chance

    his first "answers"

    "do some research"

    "I googled it btw"

    "the problem you have is you need to forget gold nuggets..."

    Yes I am pretty brash sometimes...probably why I don't get many likes. I also go out of my way to not help people

    I guess I too should go on the campaign to call the op a troll. Since trying to expand what little info he could find on his own is out of the question.
    The basement did not send their best to greet this guy. I showed up just in time.

    Google it...why didn't i think of that? oh yea, I use Bing. My bad.
