This is a pic of the gold found on the trip in my "New Dredge" post from a bit over a week ago. Not nearly as impressive as I'd hoped, but still a lot of fun to find!
The gold up that way is so so so so fine I was pretty stoked about the few larger flakes. That little picker is considered a nugget where I was...
Did another trip this last weekend down to Southern Oregon (will post soon). Again, didn't get a ton, but the gold was all closer in size to the flakes in this pic with almost zero flour gold whatsoever, and almost no black sands. Different streams, different geology and different gold... :)
