    I am a retired Marine who recently moved back to Minnesota and I am interested in prospecting here.  I live in Lake City and would like to find places close to me.  I have read about Nugget Lake in Wisconsin quite a bit, but have not been there yet.  I know about the gold rush on the Zumbro river near Oronoco and that that area is on private land.  I am assuming that prospecting would be better above the dam creating Lake Zumbro, but do not know if there are places for the public to go pan.  Also, I have a couple pans, a stream sluice and a nugget bucket, what can I use in MN and what can I use in Wisconsin?  Any advice is really appreciated.
