How do you tell when you have hit bedrock?
« on: February 04, 2012, 08:08:42 PM »

Well the simple answer is that it is fairly solid rock, though it may be igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary in nature, sometimes solid, and sometimes quite fractured, heres a few pictures of a claim I have on the Fraser River that demostrates this a bit........Greywolf









The last two picture show a quartz vein with interesting sulfides and there is some wired gold within the quartz as well........

That quartz looks like a good place to test out some detectors
