Panning Gold, Prospecting And Playing In The Creek

 took me over 32 years to find one of the coolest hobbies I have ever done! Gold panning can be one of the nicest things you can do! The first time I went panning was about 3 months. Me and my father decided to go to Dahlonega, GA for our first experience of exploration. It took about 3 hours to get there from Alabama and we were shocked! 

Atlanta won all the way to Dahlonega and there were houses on every block. We drove around for several minutes and finally found their empty lake. It was a great idea, people have probably never been to certain areas for many years! The levels were very low and we immediately felt the importance of water. 

We parked and went to the doc at the lake and found a really nice flush Quart. We pecked around for awhile hoping to find a band of gold. We ended up walking about a mile of the lake and turned around and decided to leave. We drove east of Dahlonega and found a current flowing really nice. 

As soon as I got into the stream, I could see there were several kinds of rocks and minerals in water. I fell into the pan and pulled up and let the water wash the sand cap it all. When I saw this beautiful yellow on the bottom of the pan. I shouted: "I found gold!" My father come and he laughed and said it was fool's gold. It was everywhere and if you tried to break it would crumble apart. We did not find gold, but we had a fun day and could see a river very impressive for a short time! 

If you did not know about the gold here is a little info to get you started. 

First, is a heavy metal yellow. It has a density of 19.3 which means fourth gold would weigh 19.3 times more than a liter of water. In comparison, lead has a density of about 11 for gold is almost twice as heavy as lead. 

? Malleable and ductile. It can be hammered so thin that 250,000 sheets would be one inch in height! An ounce can be drawn into a wire thirty-five miles long. 

? Gold is never found pure in nature. It is usually alloyed with copper, silver and / or platinum. 

? Gold is so heavy that it will act differently than other materials. So if you pan properly, it will remain in the bottom of your pan! 

? Gold has a brilliant structure and nearly the same in and out of light. 

? Not sure if you found gold? Take a hammer and if it breaks, you're out of luck. If it's gold, it bends and breaks it! 

? Not recommended for beginners-get nitric acid and drop it there. If it does not respond, you can have gold! Nitric acid is dangerous if it goes on you or you breathe the fumes it can hurt you! Search how to use it! 

Where to find gold 

1. A stream passes through many miles of different minerals. 

2. The density is ten times that of common sand! Therefore, it is naturally the inferior position in a stream. 

3. A new offer is available each year. Spring showers always wash down Gold Creek. 

4. Being on the river can be a way to spend the day. 

5. It can be difficult to obtain the properties of these days, stick to public bridges. We have a right of passage in streams! 

6. The placer gold can sometimes lead to a path vein. If you find it, you'll never work again! 

Which Streams contain gold? 

There are 4 features that you need to find gold! 

1. The stream can not be damned and move freely. 

2. You need to have a content-rich minerals in the region. 

3. The creek needs sufficient altitude to churn spring floods. 

4. Stream path formations and rock to facilitate the deposition of dense materials (gold, lead, iron, mercury, etc.) 

Gold is found that the free metal and telluride. It is widely distributed and almost always associated with pyrite or quartz. veins of gold found in alluvial deposits. If you find a vein quarter peck around him and be sure and look nice! People have found rocks Fourth gold all around. 

I read that if you find black sand which is an excellent place to look for gold! Another place to look is around a big rock or a former newspaper! This is where you can find a nugget of Nice, which was hidden for years! 

Go find yourself a pot and a plan for a great get-away, and go today panoramic!
