    Re: looking for places to go in indiana

    Gold Prospector (GPAA) magazine Jan/Feb 2010 issue has an article on Hoosier nuggets. Nobody wants to share the location to find them, but shows what Indiana nuggets look like. Shows a selection totalling over 1 ounce of nuggets, some nearly the size of a dime. The author got in 4 hours dredging bedrock, 1/3 ounce pickers, small nuggets with a 2.5" dredge.

    That is the secret...to find gold in Indiana, you must find out where bedrock is first. The gold matches ancient deposits of Ontario, Canada. It is about 22K and much better than gold from the western United States. But, I talked to someone who found flour gold in Bristol...a town in NE Indiana. The problem is finding the bedrock which doesn't really exist (does it?) in the north part of the state.

    You find gravel deposits left by glaciers from South Bend to Ft Wayne, down to Kokomo, IN. Just draw lines between the cities...it is a glacial deposit triangle. There is a rock found throughout this area. I sent a sample to an assayer, who does assays for gold mines at Ridgecrest, CA. The assay was Glaucophane, a mineral common in places jadeite is found, many places in Japan and certain costal ranges on the western US coast. It appears when wet in overcast sky weather a grayish bluegreen. Follow this mineral, I even found it in N Kokomo. A lot of white quartz rocks, flinty chert, bright pink granites. usually in these deposits also.
    Treasure hunting is more than "just a hobby" for it's become my way of life.

    being that Indiana is mostly privately owned is the reason for not telling where they find their gold. they simply dont want a bunch of treaspassers going onto private land and then getting "their access" cut off! pure and simple!

    Don't forget to check your pan for raw diamonds. There are people who find them in Indiana...especially in Cass county.

    Re: looking for places to go in indiana

    To finding gold in Indiana you have to move a LOT of dirt, or go DEEP with a dredge and try to find bed rock, there is bed rock just so much on top of it from all the ice overs that slid down from Canada. Chuck Lassiter has the right idea, read his book ( Midwest Gold Prospecting ) , its worth its weight in gold....no joke...lol.....One thing about Indiana, you have to screen the dirt down and run it slow through what ever you use to keep the flour gold from sliding on through and not sticking....well unless you use a dredge... then your just worring about looking for bed rock, cause there are nugget on top of that, yes even in Indiana.....nuggets....lol

    Re: looking for places to go in indiana

    Im getting ready to make my larger highbanker a dredge, but with a garden hose and just for sand.....it might be a waste but its worth trying, if you dont build things and try you never know, and I built the rest just fine....lol...
