    Larger than what? Rarest of the rare worldwide are large nuggets and like Terry said where they are found are well guarded secrets. Not only that but other than public areas they will probably not specifically tell you where at all they go to find gold. Searching in areas where gold has already been found usually yields decent results*. Welcome to Land Matters is a literal "gold mine of information" to show you the areas of promise (existing claims info). Find those and search nearby on legal land. That is what many of us do on a regular basis.

    Good luck.

    *"Decent results" is a relative term depending on realistic expectations....flour and "larger" color at the least and pickers or nuggets if you are lucky.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    Agree with the previous posters! I often checkout the youtube videos of the guys from California Relic Adventures for some cool videos on that subject!

    There are no ancient secrets to decoding the past, there is only great research and applied logic.

    I would start on the Middle Fork of the American River, right across from the ASRA guard station and work my way upstream with a Bucket line Dredge. You will need armed guards to kill the greenies and ASRA volunteers that want to stop you from mining, but it would be for the best to rid the world of those freaks anyway. I've found 5 ounce nuggets down there in the past and many pounds of gold.

    It's already been done to bedrock several times Reed. The North and Middle Forks are some of the most mined rivers in history.

    Better yet would be to look for landslides and mass wasting that have happened since those dredges tore up the canyon. That's where the gold is coming from that you find in the rivers today. Look up for gold. That's where it comes from and that's where most of it still is.

    Im always looking "up there" wondering. But the canyons are sooo steep. How does one get there with out rope climbing?
