Just curious if anyone here has ever had the bug to do some gold hunting , of the portable diy equipment small time prospecting kind ? If so would you mind sharing your exp. I ask because I just started building me a sluice box . I've also just started my research on rock formations and locations of old and new waterways around my area . I already know there are at least 10 known mines within a 30 mile radius of my residence ,,,,,sooo,, I think I'll give it a shot !After all what have I got to lose but time ?Maybe this will be the hobby that pays off in real cash
