"Nuggets don't swim upstream, so go up that creek till you stop finding any…"
Yes, I did that and I assume the area from where is digged out by the water.
I digged around the big rocks there and on every shivel of material had some pieces of gold.
Wondering if something more can be done ...
Since I started this gold prospecting hobby I've been on many river or creeks but just one of them makes me want to go more even if is not very close to my home town.
The nuggets found there have irregularly shapes, not rounded and plate as from other rivers.
Some nearby residents...
Prospecting in my country can be considered illegal...😞
There is a mining law but this can be interpreted.
With a pan or a mini sluice box you can argue it is a hobby if you are discovered by forest rangers or someone else.
It is my first time I've tried gold panning with the panning set from XP.
I have found this tiny pieces (0.5-1mm) and took them home.
Is it gold or pyrite? Your feedback is much appreciated.
