There's a magic about gold that just excites the finder, and even the viewers.  Don't try to fight it.  You're hooked now!

Hey,  You found my toofs.🤩  I got sick to my stomach last night at the local park after a 6 pack of dark and foamies and puked my dinner along with my toofs.  So cool of a find and it has happened to a few folks.

It was about 4" deep.

Nice shiny nippers you got there.  Your nox is well on the way to paying for itself, if it hasn't already 🙂 but watch out, once you've found some gold there is no turning back... it's an addiction.

Thanks, I am trying to see how deep folks are finding gold in parks.

      The water is on the way for all you "gold seekers". Plus the lower Sierra foothills have been receiving an occasional flash flood the last couple of years. Removing old mine tailings and exposing new stream bedrock. The 2018/19 Sierra winter snow pack was from 150 to 200 percent of normal. Since June 5, 2019 the warmer weather has been sending lots of water down slope. Snowfall started on the night of November 21, 2018 and continues into late May 2019.  Since we can no longer use motorized mining equipment within 100 yards of any California stream I pick up a Gold Hog stream sluice. I have been successfully using GH mats in my high banker for awhile. Here are a couple of reference photos of the snowfall at 7040 feet above sea level on the Sierra west slope. The shack roof eves are 10 feet and the roof ridge is 17 feet above ground level. There are some old mountain pack trails to the east side mines within hiking distance on that shack. Stay Dry
      Good Prospecting

      Sorry for not being on DP much and giving love to you posters, but my travels have been many.
      Early last week I tried a new park and was able to get the usually handful of common clad coins.  Also was a fair amount of cheaper jewelry (I need to test the diamond ear ring) recovered.  With the amount of coins and jewelry I have a feeling there has to be a couple pieces of gold in the park.  It will take time, but I know I'll succeed at getting the Au.
      Photos of the cheap stuff...which means I am getting closer to the good.
      BTW, this was a 2 1/2 hr hunt.

      Finally had some time to get out. I hit a local football field for two days, about 2 hours each day. I was using the stock coil on the Equinox 800. It was in Park 1, 7 recovery, 50 tone, and ground balanced. The chain, found on day 2,  rang up a solid 17, much like many of the aluminum bits on the field. The clasp is iron, but the rest is .925. At first I thought it was junk because of some rusty looking areas on the chain, but when it was cleaned off at home, a smile came to my face. The first day I dug a hole with a solid 11. Out popped a junk earring. There was something else in the hole according to the pinpointer, so I kept at it. The second target was another earring with what appeared to be silver and maybe diamonds. I tested it at home, and my tester said they were diamonds. However, my local jeweler gave me the bad news that they were not. It was a silver earring though.

      It's been raining here in the Klamaths for many days.  My camper leaks.  The only dry spot was my bed.

      I have been keeping an eye on the weather forecast for the last week and it paid off.  I found one beach with some nice sand movement and I hunted there for five days.  I managed to dig 5 gold, a few silvers and $70.92 in clad. The diamond chips on the two rings are real and all rings are 14k. One of the 14k is plum gold and another is 14kpc (pc= platinum coated). Good luck out there and happy hunting.
