  • goldenfuture: Are you going to capitalize on the price of Gold?  Because if you are not, then who cares about the price?
    January 18, 2015, 10:17:52 PM
  • goldenfuture: What's going to make you a successful gold miner?  Let's get to developing some ideas????
    January 18, 2015, 09:55:29 PM
  • goldenfuture: With Gold prices rising, it is important to be asking how you could be taking advantage.  Low fuel prices makes you a profitable miner, hands down.  What would you like to be?

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
