Slaty bedrock, the natural gold trap

  • Published on Oct 12, 2018
  • Looking at satellite images of the Winburndale Rivulet I could see areas along the stream that may have seen gold mining activity. The only way to know for sure is to go and take a closer look at these areas and wash a few pans along the way.

    The tree burl in the video. For those of you that only see $$$ when you see this then you are missing many things in life. I care not for the money that can be made from destroying the environment, such as cutting down a live tree for profit. My wealth is not the amount of money I have or the accumulated possessions but more the experiences I have and the places I see. Greed is ugly no matter how you dress it.

      I totally agree with the way you see the world. I wish everyone here in the States felt the same, but greed, racism and wealth have totally divided this country. I worked my entire life treating cancer patients, so I love to travel and see God's beauty. We are going back to Reno, NV soon, at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. My wife and I plan to spend whatever time we have left seeing the beauty of nature and looking for gold and old mining towns. Best of luck to you, mate.

      Exactly a government would jail a person for panning on a tiny scale for recreation yet if that same person suddenly found a rich vein of gold ....that same government would ban people panning and strip mine acres and acres to get the gold without a single thought for the environment

    I'd rather enjoy the outdoors while looking for hidden gems , why can't you enjoy the experience ?. No harm in looking for something of high value ? People who complain are missing the point of mind your own business, we are not all the same ! The world is for exploring

    I need to live in the USA. You guys need only a few pans for tons of gold. Here in Germany you need the whole day or even a week for that much gold. Very nice loot!

    So is the idea to find the best deposits down stream from an old gold mine? Or does it matter?

    There looks to be a really deep hole up in that meadow, at about 12:12-13. Erosion or tunneling?

    I've gotta say mate, that your tuition has given me the best start in this fantastic hobby, that I could ask for. Prospecting combines all my outdoor loves of my youth, allowing me to slow down and enjoy them with my worn out old body. Thank you mate. Baz.

    Loved the video mate, thanks for taking me along. Personally, I'm a hardcore coin/relic detectorist and tend to leave chasing gold to those with gold fever coursing through their veins and know what they're doing. However, I really enjoyed every minute of this video. You've gained another follower buddy and will definitely give you a plug in my FB group. Looking forward to watching more.
