I think I am hooked. I pulled about 2 or 3 really small flakes out of about 10 pans worth of sand. my dad found a decent sized piece using his metal detector over some mossy bedrock. during the winter floods the water goes over the moss and the gold gets trapped in cracks and moss on the bedrock. so last night I went and bought a sluice. http://www.keeneeng.com/Merchant2/m...gory_Code=GPHSS with this I will be able to do about ten times more material. Now I just need to figure out how to make a highbanker or a dredge.
