Three of the four pieces look well traveled, perhaps from an ancient  river channel or bench deposit long since pushed way up.

I look at this differently.  Natural gold is about 2.5 on the Mohs scale while quartz is about 8.  That's a huge difference and gold should wear much faster than quartz.  Here is a photo of my finds from 2021.  There are 63 pieces from a mile upstream.  They have been in the river much longer than this year's finds and are much purer.  I still think this years finds originated close by.63goldpieces.thumb.png.32f0bc5fd89f2817ba300857fda8efac.png
