Comment: I think I`d be getting a power plant and a vaccuum cleaner suck that whole area up even if it takes awile pickers that big .!!!!
My reply: If I thought that would work I would do it, but these pickers are deep in the crevices and a vac just cant get to them. The dirt laying on the surface has no gold in it.
Comment: Ya but how much are you overlooking trying to get to the pickers probably be few ounces in all that area -There`s some serious cracks there and to much garbage around it might as well do a clean up of the area and then with the dust gone the pickers will reviel themselves easier , Can`t hurt your going to win regardless fine or coarse gold. Geez thats a nice area Say do a 6ft block cleanup then wash it all .
My reply: Lol, I spent 2 hours working around that 2 foot area and got the picker and some dust. Just isnt as much gold there as your thinkin there is.
Comment: But being unwashed the gold is unseen - " I " would try it .
My reply: You have the same mythconception as many people do. Gold concentrates in very specific locations on a creek, most the gravels in a stream bed contain very little gold, on some creeks you will only find gold deep in the crevices as the source of the gold disappeared years ago......
Good luck out there,
