    Heck, I was that way before I found it, but it sure did a number on me when I did! I am going to a GPAA outing this weekend so I hope to find a whole lot more!

    Good job man. Now sit back and role the gold over and over in the bottle.. Now get prepared to be hypnotized and to let the gold fever take control nothing will put out the fever but more GOLD.

    Llano River in Kingsland Texas. I was out just west of Llano this weekend on the Llano River at the RRGPAA and found some more gold and today I found some specs and some garnets.

    Re: MY FIRST GOLD!!!!!

    Here is a picture of some of the gold I found. There is a lot more I still got to pan out of my black sands. Yesterday I found a big whirlpool hole about 3ft around and and when I stood on the cobble stones and gravel in the hole it was about mid thigh deep. I picked out the big cobble stones and dug out the sand, dirt, and smaller gravel and I had enough to fill a 5 gallon bucket and 2 pan fulls.

    I started to pan and found some gold specs and small flakes. It was getting late in the evening so I just started panning and cleaning out the magnetite and pitching it and leaving the black sands with the gold specs and flakes and I just started sucking up black sands and the gold in my little sucker bottle, and leaving the smaller black rocks and some silver looking ones. After I got the the hole cleaned out I took the 5 gallon bucket full of water and poured it in the hole and took my sucker tube and sucked all the rest of the sand and dirt out. Anyway, I cleaned that hole out dry!!!!!

    After I got up to the camp site, I took my black sands out of the sucker bottle and pour it into a ziplock bag, and laid it out flat so I could show off my finds. A woman pointed out garnet in the sands, and the President of RRGPAA, even pointed out some bigger pieces!!!!!

    I am now KICKING MYSELF IN THE BEHIND because I KNEW I had thrown out bigger pieces of the black rock! Yeah when the sun hits it, it will show red. So last night when I got back, I dumped my black sands and garnet and took a sun lamp and picked out all the pieces of garnet and put them in a glass vile.

    The one picture of the gold is what I picked out of a crevice in a boulder. I did find a piece of Native American scraping tool that was in the crevice. It is about 3/4 in tall and about a 1/2 wide.

    Re: MY FIRST GOLD!!!!!

    Well, I got some panning of some of the sand, dirt, black sand, and some of the gold I recovered out of the whirlpool hole yesterday and boy am I freaken smiling!!!!

    After I saw some of the flakes when I was panning the first few pans, (which was the dirt at the bottom of the hole), I went ahead and put some of the sand and dirt in a big ziplock bag and brought it home because I didn't want to chance losing anything in the river not even one little spec!

    I am going to soak my black sands in vinegar for about 4 days to get the rest of the gold out because I got some HEAVY black sands that don't want to move around when swirling the water in my pan.

    I am going back out to Kingsland tomorrow to move that boulder off the side of the bank and see what I find under it, dig some of the dirt to bring it home, then I am going to hit some crevices and vegetation in the river on the granite islands!

    Nice find! I went out a few times in Llano when I lived in Austin. Never did find much, just a few specks of color. Looks like you've found a good spot!

    You got to look in all the crevises where gold will get trapped, under front and back of boulders in the river or in flood stage areas, plant roots, (yes, you have to dig them up and go as deep as you can, especially if they are in the middle of the river, Llano River has tons of little islands), whirlpool holes, etc. The gold coming into the Llano River is washing out from the mountains and going into the river. I dug a nice little flake about the size of a pin head but flat out of some dirt I dug from the creek bank about 6 feet above the creek. Most people only go where it is easier for them. Most won't truck through the river, especially walking in or across waist or chest deep water, or walk up a river several hundreds of feet from land to find a good spot, but gold is in there trust me.

    There was another prospector there and he was digging under a boulder, (it had a crevise opening and a catfish darted out from under it when he was pulling out rocks), in the river and found a bunch of gold flakes and some specs in the black sand. After showing off his finds in his pan it was getting dark and he was putting some of his stuff in a blue bowl and he was talking to someone and he pointed, somewhere and unluckily about that time he dropped his hand his finger bumped the pan and flipped it off the table and out went the gold! He scraped up as much dirt he could but didn't find most of his gold.

    I am NEW to prospecting, I know NOT to leave your flakes in a pan much less try and clean out your concentrates at dark outside.

    That was the main reason I bagged up my dirt, sand, and etc in a ziplock bag because even though it was daylight I wasn't going to lose anything much less my gold in the river! What little gold I found prior went into a separate bottle locked up and sealed, especially some of the flakes!
