Gold Bearing Gravel Test Number One

Click here for Video

I return to the Hillside in search of the pay streak lets see if I can find it with my first try
I'm looking for bigger Gold than last time maybe even a Nugget
.This sample is about 6 feet below the three bucket Me and Gary worked in the last video.
Test Number One !!!
In the Original video me and Gary @Two Toes locate some Tertiary Gravels of the Sierra Nevada see how much Placer Gold is mixed in with the Blue lead deposits and how much Clay is mixed in to.
The Ancestral Yuba River Placer Gold Deposits have historically been very rich I hope this is the case with this deposit.
I always enjoy Exploring new spots in search of Placer Gold nuggets makes me think of the old timer's back in 1848 and there search for riches !!!
On this trip we have two Metal Detectors to aid us in our search a Minelab SDC 2300 and a White's TDI .​

It's so beautiful up there. I loved the area when I was stationed at Mather Field.

So mining the dirt above the rivers is OK to do. I hope California doesn't take that away from us.

Best wishes on your quest for a nice seam of placer gold.
