So i have been prospecting for gold my whole life in Finnish wilderness. Lately i've started to vlog my adventures on youtube and just realized that i could share them here as well. No other topic seems to be suitable for it.

So i invite you to take a gander on my youtube channel where you can see my past adventures and stuff at here : Jomsa Prospecting

And I'll kick things of with this day 2 of our NE FInland propsecting trip vlog from last summer that i just released. Do enjoy, like and sub if you will.. would be much appreciated. New stuff out efw times a month.
Cheers.

Nice tent. I have been shopping around for something like that for my claim as there isn’t any good place to park a trailer. Always wanted to visit Finland.

Yeah it was surprisingly effective tent. The Stove was must as the temperatures were hovering around freezing and air humidity was quite high.

After few days of just building the camp, we finally managed to get to the gold pits to do some light panning and detecting.

Got to be careful about undercutting those big rocks.
Yeah we had to take some of them down before digging deeper. You can actually see it on this next part of the vlog series.

We also started to get the big freeze as winter aproaches and had to scramble to get some gold out of the ground before finally leaving the mine. So check out this final episode of this week long trip:

It has been a good run... How ever changes are coming... I'll be dropping spoken english on the channel, but will keep subtitling so those who are interested in Finnish gold panning lifestyle can keep following.
