Finding sproinngs


#1

I keep a flashlight handy. If something’s fallen, I put the B>
flashlight on the floor and shine the beam across the surfaces.
B> Even specks of dust stand out in high relief - Dana Carlson

G’day; I was daft enough to drop on the floor in my woodworking
area among all the shavings, a bit of gold I’d been working on
for half an hour. I emptied the vacuum cleaner, went over the
whole floor very thoroughly, then emptied the bag into my
gold-pan and panned the lot as if it were from a Central Otago
stream. I got my gold finding back in 5 minutes without sore
knees. Even dafter, I dropped my first little Central Otago
nuggets (3, about the size of a grain of rice each) on the lawn,
not mowed for three weeks. I turfed a square meter, washed the
turves into my gold pan, and yes, got the little ‘extremely
valuable’ nuggets back. I’ve even panned gold with a hub-cap!
Just goes to show, don’t it? Cheers,

There is a very minor gold-bearing stream about 150, maybe 200
miles from me, outside Nashville, Tennessee, on the Harpeth
River. I’ve never panned for gold, but your enthusiasm may be
catching!
