Advice For Detecting A Creek

Recommended Posts

So I finally got a metal detector it's on its way the equinox 800. I also ordered the 6-inch coil. I'm going to post a picture of a specimen of gold my cousin found, he found it while working on a little creek that was known for gold back in the day. He found it without a metal detector just basically by chance looking down and picking up a piece of quartz off the bedrock. I know exactly where it is so I'm going to go to that spot. My question is should I literally just detect the whole Creek? There's also tailings piles on that Creek as well should I hit everything like a madman?

YES, but work the likely places first, where the bedrock is showing....

Eventually rake down the tailing piles if small enough rock, and detect. Work any benches up on sides of creek and ravines feeding the creek.

Thanks guys! This coming weekend I'm heading there. I'm really excited because there's definitely gold there and I talked in depth with him and he told me exactly where he was so I'm pumped. I'm going to dig basically every target and the creek produced nuggets back in the day. It's that one creek by the green trees. 😂😂

      I just got back home yesterday from wintering in Arizona and am now seemingly a prisoner in my own home due to the virus. I was able to go out detecting many times with only a few skunk days. The last day out, I found this specimen that is quite different from anything I had found before.

      Hey Guys,
         I had to social distance myself, so I decided on a trip back to the old placers.  Like always, digging tons of iron rubbish, this time I must of dug a dozen iron pick tips.  I'm sure they were using the tips to pry open crack and it would just snap off the tips.  I was working with my Minelab GPZ 7000 all day, moving rocks and racking sections of bedrock off.  I ended up with 6.2 Grams of the good stuff in 5 gold nuggets total.  
      I didn't get a picture of all the nuggets or a final shot, but here are a few I took during the earlier hours.  A few pieces wedged in the bedrock cracks.  
      Wishing and praying for health and wellness for you all during these crazy Coronavirus times. 
      Rob
