    Re: looking for places for gold

    Petrie...where are located in Washington? I would start with a copy of your Washington Atlas & Gazateer...page 17 (at least in my copy)...List for Rockhounding sites as follows:

    Baker Lake south of Mt. Baker in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest...agates and jasper
    Crystal Mountain in Wenatchee National Forest...agates, jasper and quartz

    Gold...that is another story alltogether...Gold is where you find it and the only place I have found any is in one of my molars...LOL

    stories about a ledge of gold dust along Naselle River (North of Columbia River)...three feet wide and 300 feet long .5 miles from US 101 along the beach at Chitlow (sp?) Harbor Peninsula...for that matter...anywhere a river spills into the Pacific Ocean...look for ledge of black sand and you might find some fine flour gold...probably would need to chemically extract it.

    Lost Spaniard Mine at the head waters of the Lewis River in Skamania County...Mt. Adams

    Surveyor Creek Placers in Yakima County on the Res

    ...only certain time of year you can sift for placers depending on where you are...seems to be a whole lot of nonsense to me...hope this helps...Google "Gold and Washington"...glean through the hits and good luck...

    ...remember that Gold is where you find it, and wherever you find Gold you will always find black sand (placers), but wherever you find black sand you MAY NOT find any Gold.

    if you can let me know where you are, and what your looking for, I can probably help get you to it.

    North Fork & South Fork of the Snoqualmie River.......Raging river......Sultan River....to name a few. Make sure to get a copy of the "Fish & Gold" book, and keep it with you when your out (Law says you gotta have it with you) Watch your seasons (Guess maybe those nuggets need time to reproduce?). Most areas open July 1st, but there are a few that open June 1st. I am thinking of going to a hot spot I know of in North Bend the first of June, let me know if your interested.

    I'll have to check my regs, but i think I may be able to put something together for an outing of sorts.

    Re: looking for places for gold

    There are many old mines in Darrington, WA. I lived there for five years and still have memories of gold dust sparkling in the sun on the ground near a creek in my backyard. It used to be a gold mining town but is now a logging town. Many of the mines were condemned and closed to the public before all the gold was mined. However unless you have mining experience and can get permission then I wouldn't go poking around... However it is a good place to user a MD, I found a nugget worth a little over $200 in my own backyard! And I've heard stories of even better finds.

    Note, DO NOT enter ANY Darrington mines unless you know EXACLY what you are doing! Many of the mines were condemned for good reason! Make sure someone ALWAYS knows where you are and when you should be back!

    I would certainly be interested in any areas for metal detecting around Snoqualmie and North Bend.

    Practice your gold panning on the Raging River where I-90 bridges the stream. Have your booklet with you.
