just sayin.'

Interesting Idea about the ancient river bed... but how sure are you that
isn't glacial till?

very informative and well done!

Great Info. I wish other prospectors would take the time to share info. At
the beginning you said you were in North Idaho and later that it was a
place gold had been found before. Any chance you are in the Murray area? I
prospect up there all the time. I'm still poor though. Make some more gold
prospecting videos!!

Author donald sawyer ( ago)
you'd be one rich dude if that big rock was gold.

definately tertiary...but random buckets of dirt probably won't get you
much...the bedrock rule still applies. they used to bulk out these channels
with monitors (hydraulic)and wash through a huge sluice. when that was
outlawed, they would "coyote" along the bedrock.
