Indiana Gold Nugget, Tiny But...

Recommended Posts

Looks like a couple of smaller pieces in the pan also.

I am going to have to get you here where I am at when I am off work next time, then we can see the gold in the pan better.

Nice catch of the speck of gold and keep up the hard work.

That's great finding gold there.

I know that in Illinois and Indiana there is more gold than what people realize. The problem is finding a great spot to be able to dig it out of the ground and not get into trouble with our laws.

Here in Illinois I have always been able to find a couple of ounces each year panning and sluicing the creeks.

Just have to find the right spot and then your set for some fun.

My biggest piece panning in western  n.y.is 1.3 grains.I also have  found a .6 grain piece and a  couple .5 grain pieces.One guy in a creek about 7 miles from where I panned  found a 1.6 gram piece with a dredge.I met a geologist from Buffalo who found a nice piece near there that he kept in his wallet.  He found it by sifting a glacier   deposit.

      Had another good month hunting the low tide wet sand slopes at a few local beaches. Some large surf eroded out a few areas, lots of black sand and lots of targets! Spent half the time in "All-Metal" and half in "Tone Mode".  For me, tone mode comes in very handy when weeding out those annoying pesky tent stakes when there is an abundance of them on the beach. I ran stock settings for tone mode and it worked out great at one of the beaches I was working that was littered with tent stakes!  The find of the month was a nice 14k LeVian ring, the surprise find of the month was another gold tooth crown, which makes my 3rd for the year! Acid tested it and confirmed it's 18k. I see Compass found one recently too. You would think the cremation process would completely melt the crowns into blobs, I guess the heat doesn't reach that point? Anyway it was a fun month. I went out recently after the oil spill for a night time negative low tide hunt, beaches were pretty sanded in unfortunately. I did encounter some tar blobs on the beach, but I always wear muck boots when hunting the wet sand anyway so I had no issues with oil on my feet. I was surprised to see a surfer out in the night time waters and also someone walking their dog on the shore..
      So totals for the month were:
      10k - 2.1 grams
      14k - 15.7 grams
      18k Dental Gold - 4.1 grams
      925 - 3.65 oz
      Thanks for looking, GL & HH out there!
