The gentleman that owns a shop where i purchased my detector has found the N.C. motherload.
He has a dredge and a john boat and goes out to old and new swimming holes, party spots on rivers,docks ,peirs and bridges and with an under water detector and a three " dredge he sucks up every hit into a basket with 1/4" screen. He then removes all prec. stones and sells the gold to some place in columbia sc. He gets around 18 to 25 thousand dollars a year doing this. That dosn't count selling the stones to a jeweler. Sounds like the most profitable type of gold and treasure hunting one can do around N.C.
