    Hey Brother you need a sluice box!
    Or do you have one?
    Hunting gold is about moving material.
    The more material you move AND CLEAN THE GOLD FROM; the more gold you get.
    A sluice box would have cleaned that dirt faster than you could carry it to the river.
    It was a good idea!!!
    Hang in there with the back.
    You will get stronger.
    It will not hurt as much.
    Did you go down the culvert pipe?
    Gold will get caught in the ripples in the pipe.
    You have to use like a dust pan to get the dirt out of the ripples. Gold is at the bottom.
    It is a good idea to look at the geological features of the area that is washing down into the culvert.
    If the area has rocks that carry gold you are naturally going to find more.
    Look for black sand lying around a wash or area that had water or on a road that had water that dried up. Look for limonite a laterite, quartz crystal especially with veins in it. Veins of gold, in the quartz is what the old timers like me look for.
    Or red hard when dry clay with gold in it.
    A red color is a good clue to look for.
    Quartz crystals.
    Red color limonite.
    Red color very hard when dry clay.
    And trumpet plants grow in mineral rich soil.
    Get it all!! Good luck!

      Yep, I have a sluice box. Check my videos after this one. This was just a practice video when I first started looking for gold in 2017. I have since released another video every 3 days since then, I'm at nearly 400 videos now. I think you'll see I have learned quite a bit. Thanks for watching.

    You have just made a bigger mistake... You stated -"His WIFE should stay in the office? Minnie, your an OFFICE Girl ,stay your butt in the office, you know nothing about what goes on in the yard"? The You Tube Word Police and the National FemiNazi's will have your ass. Been nice knowing you. Seen Channels demonetized for less. You always have to watch out for the word POLICE.

    Knee pads, so you don't have to bend over to dig. A hoe to drag material to the entrance of the pipe to reduce effort of digging. Chest waders so you can kneel in the water to pan. All of these will reduce back fatigue. Also consider rinsing sides of culvert and sucking fine material up with a turkey baster to get all the fine gold. If gravel is dry then a paint brush and battery powered vacuum I.E. dust buster etc. Will enhance recovery of fine gold and speed up the process.
    Panning technique- Always hold lip of pan down stream so that you can control the amount and speed of release. of material. When lip is up stream the water inflow can disrupt the gravity settling and cause you to wash out fines.
    You might also consider having a secondary smaller pan. Do the rough panning in a large pan, but once you get it down to the point that the black sand starts to show up then rinse the larger pan into the smaller pan. After you have processed all the bulk material or when the smaller pan is half full the go ahead and pan out the smaller pan. You can pan it completely or just remove some of the other finer sands that were mixed in with the black sand to reduce the bulk and the go back to processing material with the larger pan. You should only have to pan out the smaller pan completely once a day.
    Even then, unless the gold is big enough to pick up with a tweezers, I just rinse the contents of the smaller pan into a plastic jar (empty peanut butter jar works for me because it has a large mouth) and use other methods to finish recovering the fine gold I.E mercury reclaimed from industrial limit switches or equipment like the "Blue Bowl"

      Thanks Kent. Yeah this video was filmed over a year ago when I first got into making videos and gold prospecting. Check out my more recent videos. I think I made videos on almost everything you mention here, including building a portable gas powered vacuum, how to separate gold from black sand, how to pan for gold and chemically extracting gold from black sands. I appreciate the input for sure. I realize these older videos I look like an amateur, because I certainly was. It's all about having fun, thanks for watching!

    I'm a noob at all this but based on the location of the pipes and the force of the water would it be more likely that the other side of the p I pea be the better option of finding the gold that left the flakes?

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  9 days ago

      There's a possibility for the gold to be throughout the entire length of the pipe. Chances are higest in the beginning because the gold would drop out first since it's heaviest, and would more likely be at the beginning of the pipe when the riffles begin. Good question and thanks for watching

      +KleshGuitars It is kinda cool to find some there, I would never have thought of it, but I did think about the little creeks that feed into the culvert, I say you washing some stones, I bet the creek is full of gold, did you try panning the creek ? Keeps you busy seeing the country and having fun, it's a shame it won't support you, but who knows you may stumble on an unknown vein somewhere.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  26 days ago

      A sluice box would be good for larger amounts of material, but when I run just a bucket or three, I just pan it out to be faster. Setting up the sluice box usually takes longer than it would take me to just pan out 3 buckets. Thanks for watching!

  • SEan MAcQueen
    SEan MAcQueen Month ago

    Fun and laborious, however good idea, I'm from breckinridge living in upstate newyork I would have got the run off at the bottom of those rocks right behind your back brother. I guarantee you find way more gold also, at the end of culvert with makeshift tool you will also find more.......not to mention in fairplay you can find at least 150 bucks in dry riverbeds coming down from where the rhodocrosite mines are at. And when your done you can go to south park saloon and turn in gold for dinner, beer, and lodging if you choose

    I'm not sure that the bottom of your pans are "seasoned" enough. Take some rough sandpaper and scour the bottoms until you can see many small cuts/scratches on them. This will help catch the finer gold that might be washing out of the pan. Best of luck to you.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  Month ago

      Thank you Jim, yeah you're correct. This video was when I first started learning the hobby, and all my equipment was brand spankin new. It's been over a year now, and my pans are now naturally seasoned and work great.

    You would never know if you didn't try, so screw all the negative comments. I can't wait till spring when I can make another trip to Colorado, last time I went I took my 82 year old uncle, he had never been to Colorado and never seen the Rockies. Having him with me I didn't get to do much panning but it was so cool seeing that old man all excited and in awe of the mountains! We had a great time. Keep digging and picking!

  • Amy Hepker
    Amy Hepker Month ago

    I would dig down right where you were at only just outside the culvert, when they put culverts in the don't put dirt or cement right even with the culvert, that is usually a couple inches to a foot down below the bottom of the culvert. Then the another good place would be at the other end where the water comes out, but that looked like it emptied right into that river, If it didn'y a good place would be right below where the water exits the culvert, again a few inches to a foot or so. Just my opinion.

    All these areas look inviting , BUT, most all of this is private property,a couple claims on river that can be worked by permission only...be sure to do homework on areas of interest....one of the best ways to work culverts , cast or corrugated, is with a vac-pack ..check them out...or make your own...easy to do....leaf blower powerhead on vacuum...

    Do yoga for your back. Inversion just temporarily relieves the stress associated with back pain but the root of the problem is usually an imbalance in structural muscles. 1 hour of yoga everyday will change your physical health more than an inversion table ever will. Why relieve the problem when you can remove the problem.

  • Your homeless friend Kai

    I've done plenty of panning for gold in my life, and I have learned from Masters who have done it all their lives. That being said I have never seen anybody try to mine Calvert's before. You may be onto something, then again you may not be.
    Tried-and-true method you might try. 1. Look for a bend in the river where the water slows down. Mind the benches on the slowest end of the turn where the water level previously was. 2. Find a place where the river meets bedrock. Use Fine picks and brushes to pull the sand out of the cracks in the Bedrock and pan that. 3. Find areas with thick layers of black sand. Areas with heavy deposits the blacks and are going to be where your gold deposits are going to be. 4. If you're going to mind the Calvert's, start at the bottom and use fine brushes to pull out all of the sand from each Groove. You're wasting your time trying to shovel out the large gravel and rocks and pan that. 5. Nuggets are rare and far between. Your best bet is always going to be to mine sand and look for macroscopic (very small but still visible to the naked eye) gold.
    My best Hall was a weekend in Alaska where I mind a bench along a bend in a river with a streak of black sand almost 6 in thick. I must have moved about 300 bucket loads of sand between Friday morning and Sunday late afternoon. I hauled out about an ounce and a half of gold from that weekend. A few small nuggets barely a gram each but mostly gold dust. But that was back when gold was only $340 an ounce.

    This person is doing it the hard way. An the end result its not worth it.

      I actually agree with you here, on the fact that it's not worth it if you're looking for a way to get rich. It's a fun way to try finding some flakes of gold, one of many options anyone can try. However, in certain areas of the country, if you get lucky you might stumble upon a culvert pipe that has never been touched and will find some decent gold. Either way it's better than sitting at home. Thanks for watching

    Great idea, never thought of that. Also, that creek was supposedly dangerous to fall into, due to the cold water temps, so I had to be careful, it was damn cold. Then its downstream right into Coors! love that area, up stream under the septic plant was some great ground, used to pan there.

    Lower back pain can be helped by walking a few miles every day (not carrying anything). I had this trouble after high school from lifting weights and it gradually went away. I am a lot more careful now. Also a good multivitamin/mineral & cartilage supplements such as shark cartilage or any other processed (very fine powdered) cartilage.

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  7 months ago

      Well I have a doctor appointment today at the VA for my back. Ill mention the shark cartilage to see what he says. Thanks a lot I really appreciate it!

    • Jay Dillon

      It takes a while to start feeling the effects of high quality cartilage supplements. However I noticed that when I took shark cartilage capsules (powdered cartilage) for about 3 weeks, I started to feel like Gumby (stretchy and flexible in all joints). I actually started rave dancing after age 40 and I danced for hours like a dancing machine. A gang of skinheads tried to finish me off, broke several ribs while kicking me with steel toed boots, I just stood up and after they tried to immobilize my arms (which they couldn't do) they all ran away. Even though I had been knocked unconscious briefly, I lived to tell the tale, and I credit the shark cartilage for that. But it doesn't have to be shark cartilage, as long as it's high quality absorbable/digestible cartilage, and as long as you take it every day for at least 3 weeks. People always tell me, oh, the doctor says I have no cartilage on those joints, it's hopeless. But I'm telling you, your joints want to repair themselves, they just need plenty of highly digestible cartilage in order to do the job. I also used MSM which is absolutely essential for rebuilding cartilage. It is also a natural antidepressant. Excellent and very inexpensive. As for multivitamins, you need multivitamin/multiminerals. The minerals are really important to include and it has to be a high quality preparation. I don't take those all the time but I think it is a good idea to do so. Anyway the reason I wrote was that I noticed you were having that awful pain and I really hope you will find my comments helpful because when I had that pain it really was impacting my enjoyment of life and I totally sympathize. I have no doubt the cartilage can help you. I am not recommending any particular supplement manufacturer for obvious reasons. Just go for some very good high quality ones and they will help you. If you take the cartilage for one month every day, I am certain you will be amazed at the improvement. And there's no bad side effects. If you want to mention it to your doctor, that might be best, just in case you have any other medical issues. Also for quite a while I was taking lecithin with a small dosage of niacin, this helps avoid arterioschlerosis (hardening of the arteries) which kills most people. Every cell in your body needs lecithin to keep the cell walls flexible. (Nonsoy lecithin is available and recommended.) Get a second opinion on these, or look into some good books on supplements, anyway, I am not a real doctor...

      Ill have to take a look at those multivitamins. I injured my back in the army jumping out of planes and it's been messed up ever since. I do a considerable amount of walking but doesn't seem to help, actually it makes it worse. Thaks for the tip and appreciate the comment

      KleshGuitars cool I actually built a small battery powered dredge a while back to help clean out the sand while collecting sinkers at the beach by my dad's place

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  9 months ago

      Yeah In Denver you can actually use a battery powered highbanker, but no gas powered.

      KleshGuitars thanks for the info I'm in south Africa. I watched your video on sluicing I. The middle of Denver is there any restrictions on what equipment you can use like say a small dredge or a highbanker

    • KleshGuitars
      KleshGuitars  9 months ago

      Brian, what country are you from? In Colorado, as long as it's not on private land, you can clean out the culverts as far as I know. If you want to pan for gold in a river, you need to make sure it's not a private land or a claim. Figuring it out is another story, but I have a video planned for that. Thanks for watching

    worst thing you can do for your back is squat like that. Lower back and hips will go crazy from it... My best find to help out is a farmers milking stool, the kind you strap on around your waist. If it feels high when you sit/squat cut a few inches off the support leg. Once you see one you can make one from a few pieces of wood and some old leather belts

    I have a spinal injury so I am always thinking of my back. 1) try moving smaller amounts around. Smaller buckets, smaller shovel fulls, like a trowel. 2) don't try classifying at the culvert. Move it down to the river to classify using the water. Moving water around is dangerous for your back since it shifts around so much. 3) get one of those high speed gold pans like from Gold Hog. They work well to clean off and classify a lot of material.

      Yes I know the dangers and the repercussions of doing this, trust me I pay dearly for every one of my outdoor videos for up to a week after filming. The enjoyment the outdoors brings me is worth the pain, when I'm able to get out there. If it doesn't kill me, it makes me stronger, right? Thanks for the help there, and I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I'll check out Gold Hog I appreciate that. -KleshGuitars
