 How to Find Gold and Where to Find Gold in

Placer Gold Deposits and Where to look Part 1

By Marc Prinz

Gold Prospecting is a RUSH! THERE IS A LOT OF EXTREMELY INTERESTING AND BENEFICIAL GOLD PROSPECTING INFORMATION ON THIS WEB SITE!  Before you rush out gold prospecting and panning its a good idea to figure out where gold is in your area.  Before you can find gold consistently you have to know a little about gold prospecting and how gold is deposited.  In this article I will focus on clear creek bedrockthe most common and productive gold deposit for gold prospectors to go after which is an alluvial placer gold deposit.  Placer deposits are much more cost effective and offer much more opportunity to find gold for the small scale gold miner and prospectors.   The small scale miner and gold prospector can easily get good low cost equipment and go out panning and find gold very quickly once a placer deposit has been found.

Alluvial FanGold prospecting in rivers, creeks and streams can produce rewarding results! Even for the weekend gold prospecting hobbyist. The most common locations for a gold prospector to find good contractions of gold from a deposit is in a river, stream or creek.  A gold prospector needs to have a good understanding of how gold moves in rivers, streams and creeks before finding gold on a consistent bases.   Watch the gold prospecting videos on this web site to see how gold forms in rivers.   Gold deposits form in streaks and pockets in rivers because of erosion and the destructive force of water.  Over many years of rains and floods gold bearing rocks move down mountains and hills from the gold source and break up.  This constant erosion leaves gold behind in pay streaks in rivers, streams and creeks.  These pay streaks are left on bedrock in lines of gold running drown the river along inside edges, points, big boulders, pockets and slack areas. This is great news for the gold prospector.  This means gold is accessible to almost everyone if you do a little work.   You can also get information about how to find gold fast and how to use a gold finding system by subscribing and getting my free How To Find Gold Fast book here on this web site as well.  Watch the how to find gold videos on the gold prospecting videos page and see gold locations and how gold moves in rivers, creeks and streams.
