    I was on the Spokane river in Liberty Lake Washington taking samples and I think I found a few flakes but they looked more copper ish for no better word. I am going out again and bring back enough to run in my clean up sluice. I found them in the roots of a stump above the high water line.

    Any pictures?Just a simple google image search of raw copper could help you make the choice for yourself. Either way, hope you had a good day prospecting!

    John,

    Try to isolate one of the flakes in the pan, using your finger nail, try to smash it.
    If it breaks into pieces, its more than likely fools gold.
    If it doesn't, you may be on to something.
