GOLD, any gold miners out there?

Recommended Posts

Howdy,

Each intro to Deadwood shows gold nuggets being poured with black sand.

Is this just for photo reasons?

Are gold nuggets available for sale?

Or does it all get sucked up for minting or commercial purposes?

Any one have nuggets?

Some nuggets

 

The black sand goes with the gold. Most often when you see quartz you will see gold. (I wish that held true all the time but it is often. When you pan out your gold (which is 19 times heavier than water) the last thing you find in your pan is....black sand.....and hopefully gold. The black sand is mostly magnetic so you can pick it out with a strong magnet.

 

I had always wanted to pan for gold, ever since panning at Knotts Berry Farm as a kid. So, when I retired I started goin up in the canyon and looking. Check my photo web site at: ( ) and I have a gallery dedicated to my gold panning.
