What your looking for are streams and rivers or old dried up river beds where ancient rivers once were. Check the inside of the banks from the river up high on the banks, look for bedrock, large rounded boulders and check behind them where gold would have dropped out of the current behind them. Google ,,,where to find gold in streams ...there are many great videos on it. You can also use google earth and look at satelite images to determine where ancient rivers once were. Make sure your not claim jumping and avoid getting shot by some crazy miner. Be safe and good luck, wach out for snakes and take precautions
