    In theory it makes sense that gold would wash down the mtns and end up deposited in the bottom of those pipes

    A lot of these guys go out and seem to find the same gold nugget over and over again maybe beating it with a rock a little bit to make it look different on each video while they are trying to sell you on buying a Gold Bug or some other detector or gizmo from their online store. I like this video. The man goes out, has a good time in the fresh air of a pretty area, gets some exercise, finds a few specs, isn't hawking anything and makes an honest video of his adventure.

    KLESH,see the speed of that water,thats millions of tons of rushing water,you got the right idea,just the wrong location,find where that water makes a turn or better yet a water fall,water falls are instant paystreaks,that gold is lazy,it don't like to move,as soon as the water makes any turn,it falls there forever,found a lot till my back went out for good,try it

      I saw someone on late night television in the early 2000's doing this, where I got this idea. It's a pretty well known trick in the gold prospecting community so I'm sure Jeff and others have also done it. Thanks for watching!

    would be a good place to be carrying a portable sluice box! Also. should shade your pan so the camera can see through the reflection. And I am just full of suggestions, a portable engine power vacuum cleaner with a long nozzle to clean the riffles way down the pipe. Also, get into a regimen of sit-ups to eliminate those back problems.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  5 days ago

      Hurt my back in the military jumping (well, landing) out of planes..so the sit ups are a No-Go. I'm on a handful of medicine from the VA and plenty of chiro help as well. I built a portable vacuum 2 years ago (after this video was filmed) that I use for things like this now. Actually made a video of it's construction too. I have upgraded my camera equipment and have a few years of video production and editing now under my belt, so the newer videos are much better quality but I'm still learning every day. Thanks for watching and the suggestions

    A culvert is just a culvert. It is made from a pipe but after that it's still just a culvert.

  • John David
    John David 13 days ago

    do you pan from the culvert to get sediment that has accumulated after a rain? not being sarcastic, i really don't know and am just curious.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  12 days ago

      I just clean it out and get to the bottom, in the riffles. Once it's pretty full, you know it hasn't been cleaned in a while, so there's a better chance for gold.

      A video can be anything I want, since I'm the creator. Especially when it gets enough views per month to pay for some actual gold, then I guess it depends on how you look at it?

    if you used a metal detector , would that help your back a bit?

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  14 days ago

      Hi Shadow walker thanks for the comment. So I do have a few metal detectors, but using one inside a culvert pipe is pretty useless since it's all metal inside there. Instead, I built a portable bucket vacuum to help with this type of thing, here's a link for you: tvclip.biz/video/tKNyew6gAps/video.html

    It makes sense to clean out the culverts. A Highway Dept-provided sluice. 👍
    Why not bring the classifier to the river, then gather a bucket of concentrates to pan out later?

  • Nevermind
    Nevermind 16 days ago

    Any gold would settle into those corrugations. Go to the other side and work your way through the pipe for 10 yds and use a spoon to remove the fine stuff from the corrugations,using Arizona Tea jugs that can be filled with a teaspoon and pulled out with a long cord. Don't argue.Just do it now.

  • Leo Wakefield

    Why no sluice box?

    • Leo Wakefield
      Leo Wakefield Month ago

      +KleshGuitars i suggest it because you could have sluiced those buckets of material taken from the culverts in about 20 minuets and checked half a dozen of them in an afternoon.
      Someone else mentioned that gold coming off the mountain wouldn't have made it into the culverts and is sitting right at the face of the rock wall. That's probably true. The gravel around the culverts likely was a mix of on site and trucked in fill to seat the culverts and level the road bed.
      This kind of prospecting is more misses than hits. But if you can find that one thats been left alone awhile you just might get very lucky.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  Month ago

      The culvert acts as a "natural" sluice, so no sluice box was needed.

    GOLD....BACK PAIN....HATERS...AND OPIATES
    You are tall and thin. Therefore, you know back pain. Me too. For about 40 years now. The one thing that helped? Those inversion tables where u hang upside down. Start slow. Have somebody spot you. I can hang 3-5 minutes easy. One time, i fell asleep for 20 min. Not a great idea, but my back felt good. Lol. The other tip is.....do not have surgery until the day it is so bad you are looking forward to the surgery. Otherwise, about half the back surgeries do nothing or make it worse. I had a disc rupture and a piece broke off and was pinned between my spinal cord and a vertebrae. 24/7 pain and no position helped reduce the pain. I stuck it out for 8 weeks. Everyday was alcohol and opiates, which offered some relief. By the end, if surgery had not worked, I would have considered leaving this planet. It was unlivable. 2 years later and thousands spent on pills, off to rehab and suboxone has worked......haven't used any pain meds in years. Funny, but two Tylenol and two Motrin, taken together or close in time, really does wonders. Note...motrin will kill your kidneys and Acetaminophen
    will kill your liver, so go easy. And the next time the doc gives you 60 norco for your injury, realize that if he said, "oh...just go get some heroin....that will help with the pain.".....you prob. Would mot do that. Well, all opiates are heroin, to a lesser degree. Nobody says, "you know, today I think I will take the first step to becoming addicted to pain pills." But it happens fast. The docs will generally be ok with giving you pain meds for 30-90 days. The problem is, at day 90 the doc starts to reduce the number of pill....or worse, the doc just says, "i cant prescribe that anymore."
    And viola, you are either going to rehab or you are now going to start breaking the law to not have to go through withdraws. Think of a craving that is constant and unrelenting, plus your body starts to feel like it is coming down with the worst flu ever. Not fun. So, my advice is tell the doc you only want enough pills for 3 days. By day 4 you should be improving. Day 4 may not be fun as your body and mind will be demanding more opiates. Frankly, it is probably better to suffer for a few days with pain, than to get hooked. As for the panning, you get outside....a little exercise, you clean out the culverts and one day you may get a nice payday. The haters cant imaginer getting off their couch and/or leaving their trailer (yep, i said trailer!). Haters gonna hate. Guess who haters hate the most? Yep. It is Themselves, which is why they are cranky and grumpy and usually very large. You would be too if you had to look at a dumb ugly face every morning like they do when looking at the mirror while brushing their 7 teeth. Yep. I said that too! Lol. Out.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  Month ago

      That sucks but i'm glad your back feels a bit better. I agree about staying away from opiates and surgery for as long as possible. I end up some weeks not being able to get out of bed, but the past few months I've been lucky and haven't had any "stabbing" back pains, not 100% sure why. Lets just say I fear sneezing and coughing because that's all it might take for it to happen again and put me out for months. When I do my videos I've careful about lifting things and bending down. Well thanks for the comment and glad you are better

    What a trooper, loved the FFWD and a very honest & realistic video, but don't damage your back, split loads so you're always as balanced as possible rather than haul a buckerful of water only on one one side, and make sure if carrying a rucksac that you have a chest strap fitted, it makes a positive difference to which muscles you're using and might be over-stressing.

    So you actually have a catch that fills up before the pipe once that area is filled then it goes into pipe. It's a step up point because road commission do have to clean them out so water flow is not disturbed

    This culvert has ribs in it 1:04 , like certain types of vacuum cleaner hose. I would think the gold, if any, would be at the bottom of those ribs and you would need a VACUUM cleaner to get most of it out...plus I can't believe that someone hasn't thought of this before. Maybe it's time to go see my daughter in Erie!!

      That's usually a good practice and I was new at prospecting here in this video. On my trip to Australia last week I didn't forget to check my tailings that's for sure (nuggets everywhere down under!) Thanks for watching!

    panning 101 Put less in 1 hand full and
    lesson 2 why didnt you use the ripple side of the pan when u till off the tails. you just lost potential spec findings.. since gold is heavy it falls to the bottom thats y the ripples r there same as a sluce

    Just a little thought the 10oz. we got was not one weekend. It was about weekends and after work for about 3years time involved. But hey if we didn't try we or anybody would never of known that it's possible to find in the backyard. $$$ Reed S. Stay warm

    My Dad purchased a piece of property about 30mi.north of Fresno CA. The property has a seasonal Creek running in the back about a 150' worth. We had a 4"dredge we used when it was legal to use one. The best one day of work we pulled out 1/2 ounce of fine gold. The total out of about maybe 10-15% of his seasonal Creek we dredged up right at 10oz. of gold. It's hard work but in today's market that's around $14,000.00- $15,000.00. So it's out there to still get if you just work it. Good luck to all. Oh that Creek flows under the street in culverts in several places. Thanks for your video and when the Creek dries up in a few months I'm going to try those pipes also. Have fun and use some Icy Hot on that back.

    That place where you were panning was like a pool with a swirling water current. Can you go back and pan the dirt sediment at the bottom of that pool? Perhaps the water helps to concentrate gold in that pool like your gold pan. Just a thought.

    For about 10 cents of Gold, better to just work the river. Gold moves about one inch a year, so come back to that culvert every 10,000 years, and you might get 3 or four dollars worth.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  2 months ago

      It depends. This culvert isn't in a "great" spot either. Yeah it's in a gold bearing area, but the next culvert down the road might be directly under a gold shedding vein and there it's totaly possible to find up to a few grams of gold. You never know though, that's why it's called Treasure Hunting. Thanks for watching!

    Its in the ripples of the culvert that you cant get to with a shovel. Or right before culvert in pile you were standing on. Golds going to fall and settle. Its heavy!

      It's always good to get permission for anywhere you aren't sure is a legal area to prospect and/or metal detect. Check out my video explaining all this: tvclip.biz/video/Lic6a63KU9k/video.html

      A detector would be useless here with all the trash alongside the road and inside a metal culvert pipe. Although I do have a few metal detectors and I use them quite often in more recent videos (most recent metal detecting video found a gold item) thanks for watching!
