Gold Prospecting

Where to Start Gold Prospecting?

in Serious Detecting Blog
The best places to detect for gold nuggets are where gold has previously been found, and surrounding areas with similar geology. So again, do your research to find out about historic goldfields. Such as:
  • Tailings from goldmine sites
  • Old diggings (areas where prospectors dug for gold in the 1800s)
  • In or near streams where gold can be panned
  • Dry-blowing locations (usually in arid areas where water was scarce)
  • Old reef mine dumps and slopes
There is plenty of gold waiting to be found. Now that you know where to search, all you need is a good gold detector to get started.
