Hello everybody, I live about an hour away from the Uwharries so that’s my main area I like to look for gold. Anyway, I’ve been having a hard time finding a good area to set up a sluice, can anyone give me some suggestions on where to try, I’m fairly new to for gold prospecting world so if anyone is looking for somebody to prospect with I’d love to have someone to go with. I tried the low water bridge area last time and couldn’t find much more then a few small colors per pan. Thanks everybody for reading and Happy Hunting!!!!

Yes, it surprised me to when I first found out but yeah, it’s one of the few National Parks where you can prospect, no powered sluices or high bankers allowed, only hand methods, pan and shovel or a regular river sluice.
